Property Description

If we should categorize this hostel, this would be FOOD Hostel! We serve free Indonesian breakfast and DINNER! If you are on diet, this is not the hostel for you :p. We have a small animal rescue as well :)! This hostel is for people who love food and animal :p

We are only 7 minutes walking distance to Lempuyangan and Yogyakarta train station, Malioboro Shopping street, and Transjogja bus stop. Easy access everywhere to visit the city's attractions or the world's famous temples.

Its not allowed to drink alcohol here bcoz of the local's rule, but we usually go to bars nearby together. Just ask us, we know some good places around for that.

Every bed has its own power plug, reading lamp and curtains for your privacy. All rooms with aircon

Check in time is at 2 pm everyday, but you could request an early check in and its possible if we have beds available. This is a hostel with dormitory style beddings and we rent per bed.

    Really friendly and helpful staff and Laura herself knows a lot and has a lot of good suggestions. The food is also great and I’m really glad I chose this place, if I come back to yogya, I’ll definitely be staying here again!

    I arrived in low season so it was a little quiet but I still met some lovely people. Free evening meal is great, simple but filling and a good way to get chatting to people. The cutest kittens everywhere (this doesn't effect cleanliness) we met 2 fantastic guides who took us on a walking tour of Yogya and also a tour of the temples. Wawan and David you guys were the best!! Nice chill quiet hostel Xx

    This place is great!! There are reptiles and kittens around everywhere and plants. Free breakfast and dinner, the dinners were bomb. Good way to gather everyone together and talk about the day. Staff is 247 but wasnt the most useful or enthusiastic about helping you plan things. But they also rent scooters and are right next to good kopi spots. Great place!

    Nicely located with only 5 minutes to malboro street. Some of the locals hang out and willing to take you to the bars. Bed was comfy, but the curtains easily fall down, bathrooms simple, and not so clean, but do the job for a couple of nights.Staff were helpful in planning Borobudur for a few of us, private driver who had amazing English, and fully entertained us. Easy to meet people over free breakfast and dinner. Great for solo travelers. Lots of cats around. Amazing local coffee shop opposite

    The whole place could use a real cleaning to keep up with other hostels. My pillow came with bird shit on it (?). But other than that its terrific!! Best atmosphere of any hostel ive been in yet, plus free meals 2x daily is amazing value, and delicious. Laura is a wonderful soul and worth chatting to. She loves to share her knowledge of indonesia openly. Very easy to meet others and book tours. Would stay again if needed to.

    The host is not too friendly, he is too late to think, and don’t really good to solve a problem when we asked about car parking area. Less speak and less smile, i hope they can more friendly and make us enjoy the hostel.

    WARNING BED BUGS! This hostel has a major bed bug infestation and the staff do not care about it. I found fully grown bed bugs on four different bunks in the female and mixed dorms. The guy on reception told me I would find bed bugs in all the bunks if I looked hard enough. He also said they clean the rooms but the bed bugs always come back so what's the point. Eventually they put me in the private villa as they've not had any issues with bed bugs there. They also washed my cloths for free.

    Perhaps it was because it was off season, but not many people at the hostel. The included dinner that was served was basically spicy macaroni. The staff didn't really engage much, they just kept to themselves. The bedsheets looked like they had old stains from bedbugs. No bugs seen or bites thankfully. The showers were crawling with ants.
