5 Best Kos-Kosan in South Jakarta

5 Best Kos-Kosan in South Jakarta

South Jakarta is a strategic region in Jakarta known for its many office buildings and residential hotspots spread around ten districts: Kebayoran Baru, Kebayoran Lama, Cilandak, Pasar Minggu, Mampang Prapatan, Tebet, Setiabudi, Pancoran, Jagakarsa, and Pesanggrahan. It’s home to major CBDs such as SCBD and Mega Kuningan. So, it’s no wonder that many people want to live in the area.

For those who are not from South Jakarta, commuting to work or university is tiring – especially with Jakarta’s traffic. One of the best options to avoid this is to find accommodation nearby. Instead of buying a house, it is better to rent since purchasing one would be such a big commitment; not to mention expensive. Fortunately, there are some more affordable and flexible options such as renting a house, an apartment unit, and a room in a boarding house – what locals refer to as kos-kosan. For you who are still studying or starting your work, living in a kos might be the option since the price is more affordable. 

Before deciding on which kos-kosan you want to rent, you may take a look at our recommendation. We have a compilation of some of the best kos-kosans in South Jakarta that is situated in a strategic location and provides great facilities to make you feel right at home. Check them out!
