Good points: location, friendly staff, price. Bad points: old interior, bathroom could be cleaner, no lockers in room. This is a good budget hostel. Nothing fancy, but good price for what you get. It is located a bit out of the center, but that is definitely a plus point as it is in a lovely street with good places to eat.
Hotel is in Jalan Prawirotaman, which as quite a few places to eat. Around 4KM from Malioboro lane, 15m by bike. The staff was super helpful guiding me for my trip and recommending me some amazing places to eat nearby. He let me shower in the common shower after check out. Hot water was an issue, but it was warm enough (I think solar heater). Definitely value for money because it's a private room. Good choice for budget travellers looking for a private room.
Thank you for the excellent services, especially to the Hotel Manager (I can't remember his name), the front reception (Ria, Adi, and a girl..) and also the cafe staff. Will recommend Rengganis Hotel to my colleagues back in Malaysia.

Located on a street with great and cheap restaurants, about 1 hour walk to malioboro street. Friendly staff but facilities are very old. Since rooms are located on the ground level, insects may find their way into your room, especially flying cockroaches. We stayed in room 1 which leaked water when it rains. Unless you are picky about cleanliness, this is a great hostel to stay in if you want to get close to nature.

That is really nice place. The staff is really friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed staying there. Very warm regards to all the crew, especially Herry and Mr Butu.
Most basic room seemed to be one of the cheapest around Prawirotaman area but for few dollars more you get much much more value-for-money at other places. Breakfast is a joke (3 slices of fatty toast with cheap jam). Courtyard is really nice, but not much light gets into the rooms. Shower was clean.
A great little homestay. It isn't in the main downtown area but the street it is located on is a pretty nice street away from the hectic part of Yogyakarta. The staff was very helpful but they were a bit biased on a couple activities, I think they received a commission from a tour company.
The interior was very nice but that was it. I was double booked so my friend need to stay elsewhere (cancellation still need to pay 100% although it was not my fault). The room was cosy but the air cond was very poor. The room was still very warm after 2 hours of running the air cond. The bathroom was OK but it was filled with ants and the water was not running very good. Won't be seeing me again there for sure.
The stay in kampoeng jawa was really nice. The staff are attentive and concerned about how to get from a to b. they recommended public buses and always tell you precisely how to get where you want to go to. They also helped us to organise a theatre visit in the evening. Very helpful, clean, safe and worth staying there. I can recommend that place ... just the breakfast was sincerely bad
very nice and helpfull staff, rooms were clean and really ok. just the breakfast was not good. after the 1st breakfast we always ate outside. but they helped us with so many things and helped us to avoid ripp offs.
