Archipelago International has unveiled its first wholly budget brand, Nomad Hostel, which made its debut in Jakarta last week.
The Indonesia-based hospitality management company’s latest brand provides dormitory-style shared rooms and bathrooms as well as communal facilities such as a lounge, restaurant, laundry facilities and high-speed Wi-Fi.
Some Nomad Hostel properties will provide additional facilities, such as multifunctional spaces with connecting games rooms, vending machines, coin-operated laundry facilities and a public coffee shop.
Launched on August 8, Nomad Hostel – Kemang will offer 14 rooms, four room types, and 192 beds. The hostel will also feature common rooms with table tennis, billiards and a lounge, a coffee shop & bar, a basketball court and a Jacuzzi.
President and CEO for Archipelago International, John Flood said: “We are extremely excited to be breaking new ground with the launch of Nomad Hostel. Not only will Archipelago International be 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.”
Nomad Hostel joins 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.
