The station has improved a lot. Now it is far more secure, cleaner, and lean than 5 years ago. Good step for a better public transport!

Good for people who didn't have place to rest a while when transitting. You can at least brush your teeth and wash your face at pasar senen's toilets. It's quite clean.

Great place to find books, magazines, journals...etc. Find them on 4th floor. And you can negotiate for the right price. Good luck...and beware of the old escalator. GBU
