Which train station to get down in Yogyakarta?

I am planning to take a train from Surabaya Gubeng station to Yogyakarta on a Saturday.

Assuming that I will book a hotel in Yogyakarta in the common tourist area, which Yogyakarta station should I get down at?

The train ticket booking website (https://tiket.kereta-api.co.id/) shows 5 stations for Yogyakarta:

Brambanan

Lempuyangan

Sentolo

Wates

Yogyakarta

Thanks radjaff! I'm arriving at Yogyakarta train station at 9PM or midnight depending on the train I take from Surabaya.

Is is safe and easy to get a taxi from train station to my hotel (in Malioboro or Prawirotman)? How much fare should I expect to pay late at night?

Malioboro is right outside the train station. If you bring luggage, you can take becak instead of taxi. Prawirotaman is further south, around 5 km from the station. There's no night surcharge for taxi, but the driver will most likely ask for a fix price instead of using meter. With meter I think it should be less than IDR 30,000 to Prawirotaman.
