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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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 The facilities are a bit outdated in this building.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.

    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.
