Had a wonderful time at this guesthouse, set in a quiet gang just off a street full of warungs, (honest) money changers, tour operators and cafes. The staff were so helpful, and organised a range of local activities for us to do in addition to the excellent tours offered at the versatile ViaVia Cafe 150m away. Our room (Papua) was... More

Really enjoyed my four nights here. It's just off Prawirotaman south of the centre, plenty of great restaurants (including the ViaVia cafe), cafes and bars. Could walk to the Kraton etc in 30 mins, sounds long, but it's a nice walk and you can always hop on a scooter or horsecart/cidomo if not. The streets off Malioboro are so hectic... More

My wife and I stayed at ViaVia over the New Year for 6 nights. We are a mature couple and are used to staying at a wide range of accommodation types. We thought we would try the studio (Rumah Ayam) as a low cost option, supporting an NGO and somewhere that advertised as 'quiet' in the middle of the city.... More

ViaVia is a combination guesthouse and restaurant on the ever-popular Jalan Prawirotaman in Yogyakarta. There are plenty of other options, but this is by far, the best! It is run by women-only and does as much as possible to support the local economy, cultural understanding of minorities, and the local people in a safe, strategic way. ViaVia is a small-scale...

We had a great stay here. The staff are really friendly, helpful and full of information. We stayed for 3 nights in 2 rooms. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms were spotless. We even had hot water. When visiting the temples the guesthouse packed us takeaway breakfast which was really kind and delicious. Everyone is just friendly and welcoming... More

But with my girfriend in town, staying here was cheaper than most hostels! And there is free delicious, fresh breakfast every morning. AND the staff here... More

Only stayed for a night but felt very welcomed here. Staffs speak fluent English and they are very helpful and friendly especially Dani. Joined the Kali Code walking tour. Very relaxing and not feeling tired even though we walked for nearly 3 hours around the neighbourhood which let you see the other side of Jogja.

The location is a... More

from airport, easily can get a bus to reach Molioboro town, then take another bus 2A to reach Sugiyano. Walk about 10minuest to reach ViaVia. the google map information not so accurate, advise to keep asking the local bus guide. The location is not a walking distance to Molioboro town, but always have Beca (a kind of bicycle cart) around,... More

I booked to stay here for a night and ended up staying for four nights. Such a perfect accommodation for solo or couple travelers. The place is very clean and homy, they got this backyard where we can enjoy b'fast or chat with other fellow travelers. Located in the lively Prawirotaman street, easy access to Malioboro, Keraton, Parangtritis and other... More
