Electric socket terible should put my iphone inside the lockers for charging

Super hostel, rooftop, pool, tv, nice atmosphere.. It's perfect to relax after big days in yogy. Our room had it's own toilets and showers. The tour offered by the hostel to visit Borobudur are really convenient, they pick you up at the hostel For lazy people, it might be a little far from the Main Street (15min)
The hostel itself is very good but it has an odd feeling. It has made sure that everything is catered for down to the last detail but it makes the place a little dull. Only having WiFi in the common area for 'togetherness' doesn't work it's just a pain and the place has zero atmosphere. Despite my criticisms it is very good, the tours they provide are definitely worth and the money and the staff are very helpful. The bathroom did smell a bit
I found this to be an excellent hostel. Common area here was great. Staff were extremely helpfull also. Would definately staff here again if I returned to Yogyakarta.
Its like this hostel was designed by someone that knew exacltly what a good hostel needs but is now run by someone who does not. They've got everything they need to make this an amazing hostel but are somehow making it impossible to use what they've got. Good example of this is the rooftop terrace, it's got a pool and sofas and sun beds but is only open from 4-10 pm = no sunbathing or socializing up there. Hostel is clean and secure but not sociable and out of the way.
nice modern hostel just odd things like the roof and pool being closed all day.
Very nice hostel

The place was ok. The lobby and common area was nice, but it was the only place to get wifi. The building itself seems old, some new carpet would do wonders. The rooftop is nice, but no one really goes there. Not really a place to meet other travellers. I found it difficult to find food/places to eat due to the location. Staff were helpful and great. Overall not a bad place to stay in Joga and close to the city bus station.
I would gladly stay here again! The breakfast bar is different everyday, the staff is outrageously helpful with whatever you need, and the decor is colorful and lovely. There are always people hanging out in the lobby. There isn't wifi in the rooms, unfortunately, and not a lot to do around the hostel, but a great home base to have in Yogya.
Edu is a nice hostel but it looks and feels more like a hotel. It is a big building and the size affects the environment, it gets difficult to meet people. Around 20min walk from Malioboro street, so a bit far from the center and not many restaurants nearby. Breakfast is indonesian food, really good. In my opinion it offers a good value for money.
No mixed bunks and wifi only in the lobby, makes it a bit difficult to communicate. Toilet leaves to be desired, insects crawling in the bathroom. Staff super friendly and helpful, helped to arrange for a lot of travel admin.
Really nice hostel, the staff were really friendly and helpful. There was a security guard outside most of the time so I felt really safe, even though I didn't really have a reason to feel unsafe. Yogyakarta isn't very pedestrian friendly so it's a bit difficult to walk everywhere. A lot of streetfood, convenience stores, and ATMs nearby which is convenient. The rooms are very clean and the lockers are huge. Really great deal for what you're paying. Breakfast was great every day too! :)
Solid hostel, but it is much more like a big apartment. Common area is okay, but not a whole lot to do. Very welcoming staff, but nothing is really organized for guests to get to know one another, and the location is rather poor. Outside of that, decent wifi, very clean, breakfast is good. Good value for money.
During my stay, there was a huge group of students (around 100 students from the same school) doing group activity at the hostel. These kids make really loud noise and they are everywhere, so the hostel was so crowded and noisy. The common area is an open-air so it's kinda hot. Free wi-fi and drinking water are offered. Staff is really nice. Toilet and shower is in the room and it is clean. There's no bed curtain, no bed light. Free breakfast is not good but better than nothing.
Quite easily the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Fantastic staff, spotless facilities, great location.
Really good, clean, and much value for the money! All staff is super friendly and helpful, and really helped making my stay in Jogja fantastic! Only bad thing is that the wifi only works in the lobby. It would be nice if it worked on the rooftop as well :)

It is a shame that staff during the night shift couldn't speak english. My friend got food poisoning and needed a hospital in the middle of the night, but nobody could help me to find a hospital. You need staff who is able to communicate in english even during "calm" night hours.
