Good place to stay, away from busy city center. Dec 09, 2009
I chose this place after checking its location from the map in my guidebook.

Felt its closure to Kraton, museam and on the way to Depok and Parangtritis beach. Its also away from the Jl Maliaboro street which gets busy and loud during the evenings.

The street which runs parallel to this place has lots of international food hotels as well as cheap food stalls, money changers, ATM, tour operators, vegetable and fruits market, daily needs shops, crafts and souvenir shops, internet cafes. So you don't miss much compared to city center.

Some rooms on the ground floor look very grim so better take a look at the rooms first. All rooms have attached bath, cupboards and the chairs/table outside the rooms. The rooms on the first floor are AC rooms with TV, hot shower and cost more. The best value rooms are on the top floor with good natural light and airy. Rooms are big and clean, bathrooms are tiled and some have bathtubs.

Breakfast is included in the room rent and have a choice of Indonesia food or bread toast and coffee which is served either in front of your room else can go to the common dinning area.

The swimming pool and more rooms are across the road, the rooms facing the pool cost a bit more. You can make bookings for your tours at the reception and tickets for onward journey. It has an internet cafe and a restaurant.

The staff was extremely friendly and has good security. They even allowed me a very early morning check-in without any extra charges.

Plenty of cheap hostels around, this place is mentioned in the Lonely planet guide book.

A Comfy Guest House Dec 06, 2008
We were staying here after seeing the review from the internet. We decided to book a double room + extra bed for a night with a rate of = IDR 190,000 per night. The room was pretty big, with a 14 inches TV, AC, hot and cold shower, bathtub and a terrace. We also got breakfast for 3 persons, which we could choose whether to have Indonesian food = Nasi Goreng or Toast.

The other facilities they have are internet and swimming pool. The area is hostels area where you can meet many international tourists here. It is in the city, but not in the middle of the busy one.

It is a good place to stay when you need a quiet homie hostel.
