    Good location (near both stations and at the start of the major shopping street). Rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast and dinner is included in the price and are a tasty selection of local food. Laura is there every night and gives great advice about sights to see in Yogyakarta and beyond. Place has a great atmosphere with everyone sitting down for dinner together at 6pm, (bintangs are available despite the blurb above). If you are very lucky Laura May also show you her snake collection!

    Probably 1 of the best hostels I’ve stayed in. The atmosphere is amazing. Dinner is included in the price so everyone comes back to the hotel, so there’s always lots of people to chat to. The food is really tasty and you can eat as much as you want, same with breakfast, there’s often enough left over for lunch. The staff are super friendly and are willing to go out of their way to help. Laura is also very funny and and chills in the evening. Rooms are decent, toilets are clean, central location.

    I absolutely loved staying at Laura's Backpackers! It was so a chill hostel with an absolutely amazing vibe! The free dinners were delicious and the beds were comfy! I also always appreciate having curtains around the beds to add a little more privacy.

    Perfect spot, amazing recommendations from Laura. If you have a snake phobia, maybe not the best place to stay at. But it’s a really cool snake, the only rule is not to touch its head. I highly recommend this hostel!! Thanks

    Highly recommend staying here! The free breakfast and dinner are delicious, plenty of food and different everyday. Laura is lovely and does all she can to help people plan their travels. The rest of the staff were friendly and helpful too. The beds are comfy and the a/c is good. They also provide lockers. Great atmosphere as well. Stay here - it’s great!

    I loved the stay here. The food was really good and the aircon made for such a comfortable sleep. My only comments would be that since the toilets and showers are in the same little room, you are constantly having to wipe off wet toilet seats. I would definitely stay here again!

    If I could give this place a higher "Value for Money" rating, I would. I mean, this is just amazing for a traveler. They serve breakfast and dinner! And it is very good food! And you can refill your water bottle, so you do not have to buy water. The staff is very helpful.

    Laura’s Hostel is 10min walking from the train station and Malioboro street. Vibes are amazing. Staff is nice and very helpful, the hostel is safe. Plates are very tasty, except for those who hate garlic. They organize a lot of cheap initiatives, trips and workshops. If there’s something that I can honestly say I didn’t appreciate is the cleaning in our room and in our toilet. Floors are white and you can easily see if they’re dirty. The Wi-Fi doesn’t work well and you have to login every time.

    Very Good

    Nice hostel with a great atmosphere from a lovely host - still busy even during Ramadan. The hostel is split in two along a side street but doesn’t matter too much. Well cleaned every day but still has the usual dirt which people bring in - please allow people to wear flip-flops inside because the hall gets dirty! Some staff could be more helpful finding places to eat lunch which are close (but it is harder in Ramadan). Good (veggie) food which is a backpackers bonus!!

    I was very surprised at the state if the hostel given the high score. The bathroom was not clean and smelled. The soap container was empty and you can tell that it had been there for sometime. The bunk bed curtains were missing and broken. In general it just wasn't clean. The floors were full of hair and dust and the blanket they gave me smelled of mothballs. The staff was very helpful but for such a high score I expected things to be cleaner and in working order.
