Jakarta is a quick city. For the average backpacker, there's not a lot to do - and you get through it pretty quick. For the one day, two nights after my flight from Singapore, Teduh hostel was a perfect layover. Nothing special, but not shabby.
It's a large-scale capsule hotel, but the beds are well-made and air-conditioned. The wifi is good, the bathrooms are clean, and somehow the dorms - with all their people - are still quiet. The staff was super nice and the common room downstairs was calm and well-equipped.
Be forewarned - the prayer towers might wake you up. Welcome to Indonesia.
It's also very near the train station - so once you've been to the monument and the museum, and gotten introduced to Indonesia's delightful food - you can get out and get to the good stuff.
9/10 - Just what you need before you move on.
