“Such a pleasant stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

The owner is very very friendly and this is my absolut favourite for staying in Yogya!!!! We loved it! The house is a beautiful traditional old indonesian home and perfectly located. Compared to other choices (see my other ratings) this is perfectly priced for the room, breakfast and service you get. Another plus: The very cheap "minibar" in the hotel not only has supermarket-prices but it also has some good choices of drinks, like smirnoff or beer.

Just checked out from it because of terrible bed bug bites!!! Stayed in a single room on the first floor for one night and got up with numerous bug bites. Horribly itchy!!! The owner even said no sorry for this, not to mention any discount

I have stayed in Yogya several times for months at a time, but I just found Dewi Homestay on the advice of a friend. Yes, it is modest, but of all of the homestay type places I have stayed in Yogya, this is the best one I have experienced. Nice breakfast with a beautiful plate of fresh fruit, lovely garden, comfortable room, and only 100,000 Rp per night (about $10). The woman who runs the place was really sweet too. I'm staying here next time for sure!

Stayed July 2012, traveled with friends

Dewi Homestay is in a very ideal location, just off Sosrowijayan, and very close to Malioboro. It was very good value for money, and included a nice breakfast of toast and fresh fruit salad. The bathroom is not the highlight - there was no sink in my single room, and it was quite run down, but ok and clean enough.

The staff are really friendly and helpful, but solo female travellers beware, as I experienced an incident of sexual harassment from the owner, which pretty much spoiled my almost perfect stay.
