    Stayed there for two nights and did my laundry there after the Ijen tour. They cleaned my really dirty, white shoes for just 10k! And they‘re white again now! They served everyday a different breakfast and dinner. The free dinner is great to meet people. Would stay again!

    Was a great stay! So friendly and such a great atmosphere! You meet so many people and make so many friends. Beds were also super comfy. Free dinner and breakfast are great especially as it gives you all time to sit down together and chat

    Really great hostel atmosphere Laura is lovely and so helpful at planning your time in Jogja! Free breakfast and dinner is also amazing, but please be aware of the bed bugs! I found a couple in my bed, and so did other girls in my dorm. After speaking with other backpackers it appears that there have been a few found throughout all rooms EEEK. After it being reported to the staff I was offered a private room but kindly declined and checked into a (brand new) hostel nearby.

    I had a great stay in the hostel and met some good people there. It's a bit inconvenient that the place is distributed over two building, where the one I was in (with reception) had only two bathrooms for 4 6-bed dorms. The facilities are a bit outdated in this building. Breakfast and dinner are included, as well as reptile zoo. I would recommend staying here.

    BED BUGS GALORE. Literally moved here from Hati Hati for one night just to get some social life and found out that two people had just left because there were bed bugs. Found two huge bed bugs on my curtain. They were closing the room the day I left for 'servicing' but the mixed and males dorms had bed bugs too. The ENTIRE hostel should be shut down! Any hostel that doesn't respect their customers enough to shut down to fix that problem, but just keeps booking people, shouldn't be in business!
