Stayed here for 3 nights in total between a trip to Mount Merapi. Cheap price of rooms and the breakfast that is included is well worth it. A buffet style of Indonesian dishes and a rice, alongside unlimited eggs and a pan to cook whatever you like with them. Lots of bread and jam available also. This hostel has been... More

I stayed at Casa de Raffles over Christmas. The hostel itself is clean with great laundry facilities and good showers. The dormitory was also clean, air-conditioned and the beds were comfy. It's in a good quiet location too, if you're a light sleeper. The common space has a piano which is great for the rainy days! It's a five minute... More

The condition of the hotel was below standard and not what it seems on profile. My room was big but shabby in general and my bed sheet and towels had stains and marks despite presumably being clean. The staff are not always at the desk so had to wait for them. They didn't speak English well so it took effort... More

Casa de Raffles a.k.a. Yogyakarta Backpacker is very comfortable. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Due to the train schedule, my friend and I arrived in Jogja much earlier than we planned. I called mbak Bertha, the girl who is in charge for the hostel registration. She welcomed us and gave us a clean room. Some of the guests hung... More

I’ve been in my share of hostels around Asia and this is by far the worst place I’ve stayed at. Three of us girls had to check out of Edu Hostel (which is the best place affordable place to stay in my opinion) because they were fully booked for one of the nights we were there. We decided to share... More

This hostel is centrally located. The price per night includes breakfast and the use of washing machines for stays that are more than 3 nights. The staff members, though speak little English, are friendly and helpful. I spent the least amount of money at this hostel in all Indonesia , and still got A/C and no mosquito bites. :)

Nice room, comfortable bed. We requested an airport transfer, and didn't hear from the hotel so assumed they were not coming - although they did turn up. Communication with staff was difficult. The location was not great, quite a long walk from Malioboro and taxi drivers didn't know the hotel. Many items were missing from our laundry which we had... More

I stayed in one of the suites. The room is big, very clean, comfortable. Breakfast was very good. They also have washing machines and even provide the detergent. The common areas are spacious. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel was good for me.

This place is by far the BEST hostel I have stayed in during my time in Indonesia. Honestly, I do not know how they make money. Stayed in 8 bed female only drom for about 5 Euros a night, for about 4 nights. If you book ahead and book more than three nights, you get LOADS of stuff for free!... More
