We were quite lucky to get a room here as shortly after our arrival all rooms were booked. The room was nicely decorated, the bed is comfortable and the a/c works well. There is a shower and a toilet in the room. A washbasin for washing hands and brushing teeth is outside the room and shared with other guests. The... More

Great homestay ! Short walking distance from train station Turu. Great location, beautifully painted rooms by the owner who is an artist. The rooms are a little small but offer AC and are quiet at night. Overall great choice for the price. Relaxed, laydback place perfect to enjoy a few days in Jogya and discover this rich beautiful city.

Located just off Gang II, the hostel is very convenient for the train station and backpacker amenities close by whilst still being quiet. The hand painted rooms in the batik style gives the place a real uniqueness and almost an intensity. As expected from the price, rooms are compact and basic but there is are decent communal areas including a... More

Good clean simple rooms, staff really friendly and helpful. Good breakfast with a tasty juice and your traditional choice for the main. And no noise at night, so good location. You can also exchange you book.

Stayed here 2 months ago. Was one of my best stayes in Indonesia. Breakfast is good, the personnel friendly and the price cheap. The owner Bedhot is a nice fellow with a keen eye for pretty things and a good pool player. To bad there was no bar. The upstairs terrace would be perfect for it! Highly recommended and will... More

The place is beautiful in it's own artistic way. Everywhere you see gorgeous paintings on the walls just like in the rooms. Every room is different and has it's own character. The rooms are not that big, but big enough to do your thing! (and that's all you need because it's always nice to be in the sitting area in... More

When arriving in Yogyakarta we found ourselves a simple, but nice homestay in 'gang 2' Hotel Andrea. Leaving the train station, it was a five minute walk towards the small alley full of little homestays. After one night we moved 50 meters to Setia Kawan. The place can be reached via Gang 2, through a little forest and then you... More

Maybe im the first local tourist in this year. And im in love with this place. The room, the meal, the service, good enough. Altough the location is in the small alley, and far from the highway. But really homey and friendly. Highly recomended for backpackers.

Full of Bedhot's beautifull paintings, Setia Kawan is a calm, cosy and comfortable place to stay. Breakfast is included and I payed 140.000 for a two person room with fan. Computers with internet are availible and there is a book full tours to do around Jogja. I had an unforgettable time here!
