    I initially booked two nights here and ended up staying for five. Throughout a month in Indonesia, this was the best place I stayed. The atmosphere is cozy with several areas to hang out, read, and chat. Coffee, tea, and breakfast are complimentary. Above all, the staff is just wonderful. Rara, Lena, and Maryo consistently go above and beyond to ensure that all guests have a wonderful experience. On the last night, I upgraded to the one of the new bungalows–highly recommended!

    The Jawajiwa Experience was amazing! Shout out to Reza, Ovi, Raffy and the rest of the staff for making my stay comfortable and memorable. The location is excellent for me. The place is situated in a quiet part of the city and its just right across the most fabulous noodle place in Yogyakarta! Met some amazing people during my stay. Linda, you are one of most interesting and amazing people I have met. Safe travels and congratulations of your new job! Overall, I highly recommend Jawajiwa!

    A hipster hostel of upcycled decos, with a rustic common area for tea or coffee, books or a good chat. An ideal place for backpackers, and catlovers. Reza, Tommy, and Rifki are extremely helpful. They gave good recommendations on places to go to and told us what to be aware of. They also helped us in a motorbike accident by representing our interest and took care of our injuries. Its quick to make friends with them. Also, the Mie Goreng (fried noodles) opposite the hostel is really good.

    A wonderful little hostel. If you’re looking for somewhere to chill that’s a little bit out of the city centre then this is the perfect place. Jawajiwa has a real family atmosphere. There’s a nice garden and communal area and the staff will help you with whatever you need, whether it’s booking day trips, ordering food or suggesting the best ointment to stop your mosquito bites itching (turns out it’s bee’s oil). I highly recommend Jawajiwa and will stay there again if ever I’m back in Jogja.

    Loved it here! Beautiful hostel, lovely friendly atmosphere, outside jungle shower which is awesome and super easy to meet people because of the smaller size. They even went out their way to drive me to the ATM at night when I needed cash. Only downside is no air con so windows are open at night and mosquitos can be quite bad. I was lucky to not get bit but I made sure to drown myself in insect repellent every night before bed, other backpackers weren't so lucky however!

    What an amazing crew. Very helpful and super friendly. They helped us when my girlfriend was sick. They gave us a lot of good information about nice restaurants, cool places to visit in Yokyakarta and it's possible to rent a scooter/motorcycle there. We recommend Jawajiwa to everyone who needs a nice and relaxing place to stay in Yokyakarta. They really made it feel like home.

    Really nice hostel with really helpful staff. Free breakfast in the morning and a really cool outdoor shower. Location is a little far out but nothing a bike can’t sort. Excellent value for money

    The place is good and clean, it's very homey. Tommy, as the host, really helped us about Yogyakarta trip and very friendly. But I have suggestion, need to pay attention about mosquitoes in the room.

    Jawajiwa is a little oasis! It’s green and comfortable, full of cool local art and cats wandering around unobtrusively. The house is a bit removed from the city center (and outside the radius of some tour companies), but it’s super easy to get there on a bike or car, and one of the staff will be happy to order you one! They go out of their way to make sure that guests are happy and comfortable, and the atmosphere is chill and friendly. Highly recommend! (Note: visited as a solo female traveler)
