“Great guesthouse”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

This guesthouse really surpassed our expectations. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and will serve a very good indonesian breakfast as well as an afternoon tea with snacks. The rooms are basic but very clean and the bathrooms definitely way above what you otherwise can get in indonesia. The hotel is arranged around a cute backyard full of flowers and plants. You can also book tours with the hotel (powered by kresna tours) which are significantly cheaper than what you can find otherwise and very good (AC mini bus, nice staff, no detours to get you to buy anything). If you combine the things said with the ridiculously low prices, you cannot but rate this homestay excellent.
Ps: dont go for superior rooms as they are older and less nice, if you can, get room number 2!

We stayed here for 4 nights. Room was very small and dark. The bathroom, although clean had a constant musty smell, hot water was a bit tricky to get to right temperature. Staff were wonderful, very attentive and helpful. You can help yourself to tea and coffee anytime and they provide rice with other "bits" for breakfast. When they realised that we didn't usually eat rice for breakfast the staff went out of there way to accommodate us with bread and jam. Definitely for the young and budget traveller.

We spent 4 nights at Kampoeng. Staff was very friendly and very helpful. The cheaper rooms are basics but very comfortable and quiet. We had to share bathroom. They offer free Indonesian breakfast and afternoon tea with local food that is almost sufficient for dinner. Location was perfect but a bit far for Malioboro so we had to hire becacs to get to this part of Djoja. Public transport is also available for cheaper but less convenient.

I've stayed here two times because it's in a nice location, the staff is really nice, and they give you great service along with extras like afternoon tea and breakfast at a very reasonable price. It also has a lot of character. The downside would be that they put mothballs in the closet, but we discovered that if you bag them up, the smell goes away pretty quickly. Maybe if enough guests do that they'll realize that it's not a pleasant smell!

You can find good restaurants on the street and tour companies. Great dessert at Ministry of Coffee and great dinner at Via-Via!

The traditional decor with rooms set around a small garded is very nice. Also they offer a traditional breakfast which changes every day. A nice touch is the afternoon tea. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and the shower was great. But the rooms are a bit dark and feel damp.

This place was a great find and amazing value for money. The staff are so friendly and helpful, and the rooms clean and cosy. People who winge about the location are just lazy! It's a 15 walk to the Sultans Palace and located on a strip with lots of good and cheap restaurants. You can pay $1 to use other hotels pools and if a 10 min walk to the palace is too much, get a Becak - actually great fun as we got one back to the hostel. Also check out via via restaurant (2 min walk from hostel). Excellent food and real good value. Good wifi at hostel to. Enjoy.
