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!

We stayed here for 3 days and really liked it. Our room was a little small but beautifully decorated. The staff were full of helpful info and very friendly, they did tell you about the tours they sell but they were not in the least bit pushy. It's in a great location and the breakfast was nice, with free tea... More

- The rooms are all boardering the lobby. So you won`t sleep before 00:00 and will be awake around 5:00AM because people leave for an excursion to Borobodour. Also cigarette smoke enters the rooms - Also dissapointed about the really small rooms because they have NO windows, only a scarf as sheet and no hot water for 185.000rp Yes there... More
