“Recommended Hostel when in Yogyakarta”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We stayed at their fan room since there weren't any available economy AC room coinciding on our chosen dates (March 14-16, 2013). The room was spacious, a little bit on the old and musty side but still perfect for what we need. They have a really nice (who brings snacks in your room!), helpful, polite and really thoughtful staff. My fiancé and I are always out of the hostel before the break of dawn but they always have a prepared breakfast for us on the go! That was really nice of them!

The location is a bit far from Malioboro Street (3kms) but it's an easy and quiet neighborhood of hostels so we didn't really mind.

PS: a dip in the pool was really nice after a long day of walking in Candi Borobudur and Malioboro Street.

I stayed here with my boyfriend on January 2013. The room and bathroom were nice, they clean it every day. The breakfast was great. And the staffs were very friendly. But mostly the staffs were very noisy, I always woke up from my sleep because their voices were very loud, joking or screaming calling each other. But overall, it's a nice place to stay.

The atmosphere is so lovely at the hotel, and the manger is very helpful and friendly. We had to change rooms once, and the new room was made up and ready to go with extra bed without delay. They only charged us for 3 breakfast as we only paid for 3 beds in room, even though we had 4 people eating. The hotel is a beautiful old dutch house, and the memorabilia around the place is just lovely and so interesting. There are umbrellas for use, staff organise transport and taxis if required but are never pushy. The pool is lovely and clean and the gardens surrounding the hotel beautiful. Afternoon tea is served every afternoon with lovely little cakes. Fabulous breakfasts. Bathrooms could be a bit cleaner.

Room Tip: Lovely room upstairs surrounded by gardens. Very private.

A good value in Yogya. Nice basic room, clean, comfortable. Friendly staff. Good breakfast & nice touch with tea and a treat in the afternoon delivered to the rooms. Great pool! You can find lots of places to stay in Yogya for a similar price.

Downside:
- shower was mounted only halfway up the wall.
- rooms are basic, you can get better rooms for similar money in other parts of the city.
- car hire for trip out of the city was without A/C and seat belts. A taxi on meter would have been a better value.

Duta guest hose is a lovely place in Yogya , it is clean ,not expensive ,de people are help ful and friendly .When you stay a round 15:00u at the pool ,you will get thee for free .
It is a really nice place to relax in a bizzy city .There are two rates of rooms very cheap for backpackers with shared bathroom and the regular rooms included bathrooms .Make booking a day in advance ! In a bout 15 min. on foot you have a terminal for the city busses ,on the main road direction the train station.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights when we were traveling to Borobudur & Prambanan. It is good value for money. Very nice design. Colorful fishes in different small pools around the hotel kept our toddler very happy.
But you will have to accept the fact that there is no room service and no rubbish collection. The restaurant is set only for breakfast. They do order food from the main hotel (Duta garden) restaurant but it is not good. Much better go down the road and have a proper meal outside the hotel.
They also serve afternoon tea and a cake at around 4pm to your room.
The breakfast is not very rich but you can ask for an omelet or a pancake.
