Jakarta, Indonesia's capital, is located on Java between Sumatra and Bali. This giant city has around fifty million inhabitants that always describe Jakarta as an amazing and nice city, although as a tourist you probably will not find it so nice. Kota in the north has a lot of beautiful, historical buildings and in the center, you can find some interesting museums. Kota is an old district in the north of the city and it was one of the main points in the Dutch trading empire. Here, the museums can be really disappointing, but make sure you head to the Cannon Si Jagur, which was built by the Portuguese to defend Melaka. The whole site has a lot of sexual images –- really suggestive for southeast Asia –- and you can get around and explore more about the symbolism and history of it.
Just north of of Kota you have the historical harbor of Sunda Kelapa, with some picturesque boats that still arrive here. It's a walking distance from Kota. The center of the city is Medan Merdeka, a big square with nice gardens. For a view of the entire city you can go to the top of Monas Tower -– inside you also have a chance to get to know a little bit more about the history of the city. South of the city center, you have Mini Indonesia theme park, with free entry once a week, that celebrates the routes and ethnic diversity of the country.
The best way to arrive in Jakarta is by airplane in Sukarno-Hatta Airport. If you arrive by bus, you still need to make a long way to the city center.
You can find some hostels in Jakarta that are usually basic, but with all the facilities you need. Jakarta's hostels are usually fully booked, so book in advance and try to ensure that you stay around Jalan Jaksa, the main place for backpackers and near enough to Medan Merdeka.

Hunny Hostel Jakarta
"Do better - Centrally located but off main road about ten minute walk. Breakfast weak. Tons of mosquitos and roaches. Beds and pillows ok, and AC in room works. Internet never works. Common areas depressing (ignore the pics, it's actually ten times dirtier and a tenth as bright). Overpriced. Mosquito swatting rackets and bug zappers in each room appreciated but it's a losing battle. Only one hot water shower, downstairs and behind kitchen....
