The staff spook very little English. We arranged to see Borobudor, Prambanan and house of sultan, but for some reason the driver brought us back after the first two. Had to pay something on the road and no one could tell us what it was for We came back to a very dirty bathroom with blocked (non western) toilet, there was no other one. The hose was broken, so you could only bathe in the tub. After an upgrade, we had a better and cleaner room. Ask for hot water, this took 30 min to turn on.
We made a reservation through this website for four nights. At 9.30 pm we would arrive, just as we wrote on the reservation. We received a confirmation email and payed the 10% booking fee. When we arrived that night there was nobody to welcome us. There was even nobody to find on the whole premise. We rang the bell several times, knocked on doors and asked locals to help us but we stood outside with all our luggage and didn't know what to do. After 30 we gave up and went to another place.

Fuji is a great place to stay if you want to get away from the downtown of Yogyakarta or trek on Merapi. It is very expensive to get to and from Fuji though. The staff was friendly but spoke almost no English so they really couldn't help us. It is also kind of pricey to stay at there and the showers and bathroom in general are pretty bad.
These guys were wonderful. The hostel itself is quite pretty and there's a pool, so that's nice. The whole place just has a pleasant atmosphere. But the best part of this hostel are the guys working there. I accidentally left my iPhone in a shuttle bus and we didn't know what to do, so we went back here for help. These guys spent the next two hours tracking my phone. And we weren't even staying at the hostel anymore (we'd checked out a couple days before). Fantastic hostel. Thank you SO MUCH!!
