A lovely quaint hotel down the main backpacker strip in Yogyakarta, staff were super friendly and reassuring to always have them around. Disappointed we were not told about breakfast though!!

Stayed in twin room. V nice room. Bathroom not as clean as it could be. Sink hadn't been cleaned. Staff extremely friendly. Breakfast ok. Only instant coffee.


Charming atmoshere, very quaint and its located on a backpacker street.The staff are so friendly. The only downside is the roof is thathed or something so you hear evvvvvverything that is going on outside (and the rooms next door) Definitely bring some earplugs! Also, Its worthpaying a little extra for air con.


The guest house was clean and staffed by friendly people. I also met some friendly fellow travelers...no disappointments to be had here :)


The staff who work there are so friendly! We got in hours before we were supposed to and right away they had us set up in a free room. The rooms themselves have lots of charm and let us relax after a day of sightseeing. The hostel also helps you book tours to see the sites which was helpful. The surrounding area is full of restaurants, bakeries and other hostels, ATMs and travel agents. It's a great place to meet new people and enjoy. My boyfriend and I would definitely stay there again.


In busy Yogyakarta, Kampoeng Djawa was a relaxing warm bath. Apparently they have changed the service, considering earlier comments, because the breakfast and afternoon tea were very good. The hospitable staff have advised us very well about sights and tours. Probably the best value for money in Yogyakarta.

Room upstairs was great, beds in the downstairs roam were less comfortable. Very good atmosphere, not too big. Bit far from the center, but lots of restaurants, shops etc in the neighborhood and taxi to centre is not expensive. Pluspoints are the afternoon tea and free hot and cold water. Haven't tried breakfast, had to leave early. Very friendly staff.


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.


Very friendly staff. Food is not good, breakfast portion too small and not much variety. Internet is slow and outdated.
