Each bed is provided with a small table that can be used by guest to open a laptop or just reading a book. Not to worry anyway because throughout the area in the CX Hostel has included Wi-Fi access so guests can browse as they like. As a promotion, it offers room rate at IDR 120,000 to IDR 140,000 per room per night.
Meanwhile, the Board of Director of PT Perkasa Internusa Mandiri owning the property of CX Hostel, Kurnia Sukrisna, asserted that in terms of service, the CX Hostel was similar to the others. However, it offered several advantages that could not be obtained in other hostels. Other than having strategic location and affordable price, the services provided were more casual and warmer. But one thing distinguishing the CX Hostel from the others was the cooperation with the artists to introduce the arts and culture of Indonesia as well as personal relationship to guests.
Then, the Director of PT Primus Pratama, Christian Kumala, as the operating management of the CX Hostel said the concept of hostel actually had been growing in Singapore and Japan. Even, it could be widely found in Jakarta and Medan. However, since the CX Hostel had something different, his party hoped the CX Hostel would be acceptable and flourish in Bali. (BTN/014)
