“Okay for short stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

I stayed for 1 night at Munajit. It's nowhere near as bright, clean, or tidy as the TripAdvisor photos depict - all the walls have a patina of human contact: it looks a bit shabby, honestly, although I'm sure the floors are swept and linens washed.

I stayed on the second floor, there are two rooms with louvered windows facing outside, while the remaining rooms windows face the Munajat's hallway. There's a pleasant smoker's balcony with a couple chairs and a view of neighboring rooftops.

I was comfortable in my room, but furnishings are minimal - one mattress on the floor, a small bookcase, and a fan plugged into a dual-receptical outlet (so there's an empty socket to recharge gizmos).

There's free Wi-Fi and I was given coffee in the morning by Uki ('ookie'), the friendly receptionist - all the staff were polite, but only Uki spoke English.

Stayed January 2014, traveled solo

Looking for mosque in the ally and we find this place, at first we planned to have a look and finally decided to stay. It’s low budget with very basic room but clean bathroom. The hotels is very close to main city area.

My name is Ino, i came from Makassar, i came to jogja at March 2012, i knew this hotel from my friend, my advice: just come and enjoy the best price, service and comfort, only at this place in Jogjakarta, because I did, and I was satisfied with everything, can't wait to go back again.

I went to this hotek many times, it's improving time by time. The host is very very charming kind and open minded. The place is very good, clean and very worthed with budget that we spend. I referenced to some of my friends. They love it!

They dont provide breakfast. It is not big problem coz i can find local breakfast around hotel with reasonable price. Well, i can explore by this way.

The hotels is very close to main city area, i dont think u can find sucha place like backpacker hotel in the town.
