Archipelago Launches New Brand; Opens First Nomad Hostel in Kemang, Jakarta

Indonesia's Archipelago International has launched Nomad Hostel, a new brand that the company says will provide budget-oriented, dormitory-style shared rooms and bathrooms, as well as convivial communal facilities such as a lounge, restaurant, laundry facilities, and high-speed Wi-Fi.

The first Nomad Hostel opened on Wednesday, 8 August 2018 in Kemang, one of Jakarta's most iconic districts for both day and night entertainment.

The Nomad Hostel Kemang features 192 pods split into four room types: 10 Pods, 14 Pods, 16 Pods, and 20 Pods. Each room is then separated between male and female travelers, with the second floor belonging solely for female guests.

Facilities at Nomad Hostel Kemang include common areas, bathrooms, a swimming pool, and coin laundry services - all available for sharing. A coffee shop with both an indoor and outdoor area is also available, with complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the hostel.

“Kemang is all about the best things Jakarta has to offer: the best brunches, date night destinations, after-work drink spots, shopping malls, and even the best late-night dancing haunts,” said John Flood, President and CEO of Archipelago International. “Kemang is therefore the ideal location for us to launch our brand new chain of Nomad Hostels. Here at Archipelago International, we are very excited to see Nomad Hostels grow, and this burgeoning destination couldn’t be better suited for the launch of this exciting new brand.”

Nomad Hostels is the first wholly budget brand from Archipelago International, joining the groups' other segments, including the select-service favehotel and Hotel NEO, the economy Quest Hotel and Harper, and the upscale Aston, Alana, Aston Heritage Collection, and Kamuela.

John Flood said, "Not only is Archipelago International embarking on an entirely new venture, we'll also be increasing our international presence with our sights set on the overseas market in the future. This is a great milestone in the company's history and we look forward to developing this new chapter even further."
