It was comfortable for sleeping after a day with adventure. It is located near malioboro street and tugu station. Even though we didn't get blanket, we felt comfortable with economy room. The bathroom was clean. We ate sandwich for breakfast everyday.

Hostel ini sangat minim dan agak lembab. Tapi harganya memang muraha. Jadi ya ada harga, ada rupa. Don't expect too much since you pay a lil money. It's okay for backpackers that need a place to sleep. No more facilities. But the location is good, at the center of malioboro

This review is quite late. I booked a twin room and did not expect much since the price I paid was too insignificant; all i need is just a place to spend the night before flying to Denpasar. Still good value for money if you are traveling on a tight budget.

Great location. Nothing else good to say. Booked a Deluxe room at about Au$46 per night through Airasia. The most expensive and worst of 5 hotels in Indonesia. Had to carry our two bags total of 30kg of iuggage up the steep narrow stairs, the clerk did not help. No elevator. My wife carried the two hand carry bags. Sorry... More

We stayed 4 nights in September and was very disappointed with the Hotel. The Hotel is located right next door to a nightclub/restaurant and loud amplified music reverberated throughout the room until the late hours of the night. The general cleanliness of the room was of great concern. Mould was on the walls and ceiling as well as the bedhead... More

We stayed in Merbabu for 3 nights. The price is acceptable, but not the cheapest one. You can use WiFi on the terrace only, where you can also have tea/coffee 24/7. The room is not that clean and the staff somehow ignores you in my opinion. They did not even say hello when we came back in the evenings. So... More
