5 Places To Rent Kost Exclusive Cilandak!
Jakarta is home to many districts and spots where you can find lots of things to do. One of these districts is Cilandak, hosting many malls, restaurants, zoos/wildlife reserves, and even kost exclusive. There are many accommodation options in Cilandak, from high-rise buildings to one-story houses. One particular option we would like to introduce to you today is the ‘kost exclusive’ accommodation. This option might be a bargain for you who’d like a minimalist and affordable room with accommodations and facilities that can compete with normal apartments. With that, let’s find out 5 places to rent kost exclusive Cilandak!
What is a Kost Exclusive?
Before we get down to business, let us introduce to you what ‘kost exclusive’ means. First let’s look at the word kost. It’s a term to describe a living accommodation similar to a guesthouse, but more geared towards long term stay. It is usually rented by students of universities or salaryman/women who seek an affordable option compared to buying or renting a house or apartments.
Now when you add exclusive to it, it usually means a kost with higher quality facilities or accommodations. And they do own up to the name. Some Kost exclusive options have similar monthly prices with other more lavish accommodations such as apartments. For one, some kost exclusive options (such as the ones we recommend) have certain perks that other kosts don’t have. This includes minimarkets, parking space, cleaning service, laundry service, and many others. They usually range from 2500k IDR per month to 6000k IDR per month. Kost exclusive reaches that sweet spot between paying too much and having little to no facilities at all. You’d still get to feel like kings and queens when living in a kost exclusive, paying really cheap prices all the while.

Important Things To Note About Kost Exclusive
You’ll probably see a lot of students
Since the original idea of kost is geared towards students, this should be a no-brainer. If you are a fellow student and are looking for a kost, then this should be no problem for you. Particularly, if you are going to the same university. But, if you are not, then it’s easy to imagine the difficulty in socializing with your housemates living in other rooms.
Since kost exclusive is a bit on the high end, some students might be deterred to own an accommodation there. But still, there will always be students on kost accommodations. So keep that in mind when you are looking for kost exclusive options.
There are often stringent rules at place
Another differentiation of kosts compared to normal guest houses are its stringent rules. The kosts we have below have 24/7 surveillance, security, and CCTV installed. They serve as both a security measure and a means to deter those who live in their property from breaking rules. Some kosts have curfew time, disallowing those who live there to bring people from outside to their room, and even possibly barring people from buying alcohol. This hinges on the perception that most people who use kosts are students. In addition, they are often also ‘personal’ accommodations, with the owner making rules as they see fit.
Kost exclusive, being geared towards both students and normal accommodation seekers, might not have such stringent rules. So, before buying, please check the rules and regulations of each specific kosts carefully before renting.
