5 Best Kos-Kosan in West Jakarta

West Jakarta is an area with a lot of offices, universities, and historical sites spread throughout its 8 districts: Palmerah, Kebon Jeruk, Kembangan, Taman Sari, Tambora, Grogol Petamburan, Cengkareng, and Kalideres. Many employees and students reside in the area. Many companies, such as Traveloka and Kompas Gramedia, have an office in Palmerah. Major universities, such as Binus University and Tarumanegara University, are located in Kebon Jeruk. It’s also home to many historical buildings located in Taman Sari spread from Gajah Mada, Glodok, to Jakarta’s Kota Tua (Jakarta’s Old Town).

People working and studying in West Jakarta may not have lived in the area. Many come from other parts of Jakarta, the satellite cities of Jakarta, or even other provinces. Therefore, the demand for housing rental is pretty high. One of the most popular types of housing rental is boarding houses or what we locals call, kos-kosan or kost. The rental rate of kos-kosan is relatively cheaper than renting a whole apartment unit. You can also pay kos-kosan rental monthly, unlike apartments or kontrakan rental. No wonder, kos-kosan is the number one choice for students and young employees. 

Here we have a compiled list of some of the best kos-kosan in the West Jakarta area. Let’s check it out!
