They call it a youth hostel, but it rivals the top hotels of Salatiga. Brand new, soft opening in May 2007. Luxurious spacious rooms, with two double beds. Hot spot available. They have a fitness center as well as outdoor sports facilities, and a swimming pool from which one seemingly can take off into the sky!

Located on the lower slopes of Merbabu mountain, 5 km from Salatiga center, which can be reached by public transport (angkot).

Pondok Remaja caters specifically to youth an scout groups, but tourists are also welcome. Rate Rp 300,000.- for double occupancy, and Rp 400,000.- if you stay with four in a room. Breakfast included. Very reasonably priced restaurant.

The Salib Putih estate has an interesting history of over 100 years. See our travelogue Salib Putih Foundation. Establishing the camping ground and youth hostel has been made possible by Indonesian Christian investors.

Unique Qualities: Surrounded by a varied plantation of coffee, clove and fruit trees. Fine views over Salatiga, Rawa Pening lake and surrounding mountains. Jogging track available, and good starting point for hiking. Adjacent is a camp ground, see tip.
