“Nice and friendly place to stay!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is a great place to stay in Jogja. Highly recommend it. The owners are extremely helpful and accommodating (they can make breakfast for your if you have an early flight) and so are the staff (even if they can't really speak english, they will still help).

Facilities wise, couldn't complain much maybe except the TV channels were a bit limited (if you really wanted to find a fault).

Location - tucked away in a corner of Prawirotaman and shielded from the blasts of the prayer calls. A less than 5min walk out of the door and you're on the main street of Prawirotaman already.

Value - good for value. Well worth the $$ you're paying for.

its a great place to stay in Jogja, quite and peaceful. nice owner and staff!
the breakfast fresh made by the staff, many choices too! the coffee and tea are free all of the time. the distance between every tourist area is not so far, you can ask the owner to organize you everything: cars, bikes, taxi, becak. etc. Public transport is also available near this hotel, and oh if you are want to relax a bit, there's also library with daybed at the garden.

We had a great time in the de pendopo homestay. nice rooms, beautiful garden, very friendly owners and a great neighbourhood. The breakfast is included and you can choose between western style and indonesian breakfast. The rooms have outdoor bathrooms with cold and hot water. We loved to stay here and can totally recommend this place!

The family in charge were extremely friendly, did not try to sell us anything and were fantastic when it came to helping us plan for further travels.

The rooms were nice but it was slightly strange turning on the shower to brush our teeth given the lack of a sink in the bathroom. This is not a down point, merely a quirky observation.

The room itself was nice enough, with a good a/c unit, though the lights were a bit dim. The choice of breakfast was fantastic, with a good variation of Indonesian and Western breakfasts.

All in all a pleasant stay.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights and had a great experience. The owners and staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly. The rooms were well-appointed and calming and included thoughtful touches like a laundry basket. There was also a lovely little garden in which to relax. Overall, I was very impressed with the value for money- they even let you choose from a reasonably complete breakfast menu, which I think is quite unusual for a small guesthouse. We'd definitely go back.

This was my first experience staying at 'homestay' style accomadation and I have to say, it was really fantastic.
The hosts were really friendly and helpful, they have really made this place feel like a sanctuary in the middle of a bustling city. The rooms are really comfortable and have Aircon, TV, wifi and an ensuite. The place itself is really close to great cafes and bars, except as I said before it feels like a world away from the city!
All in all a fantastic experience and I would be happy to recommend De Pendopo to any friends who are planning on traveling through Yogya!

After reading all the good reviews about this place we decided to give it a try. We got there at 7am and without a problem we were able to go to our room. We had a hard time to buy our train ticket to Jakarta and Budi helped us with that. We didn't know about the Merapi tour and Budi was there to arrange everything for us... He was definitely super helpful and even gave us an lot of tip where to go, what to do around the city. We were happy to be able to do some cooking while we were as well. The shower was great, you could even see a cat sleeping on the clear roof while your getting clean up. Even a very late check out we had no problem at all! We really appreciate and had a great time in Yogja.

Dear Marciadefoe,
Thank you so much for sharing your experience staying at Dependopo Homestay. It is highly appreciated. It was our pleasure to show Yogyakarta and its specialty to you. About the cat, was it a white cat? the cat is belong to the neighbor, but she loves to just chill out under the sun in our place, particularly on the glass roof, just like the free birds that nesting in our bamboo trees :) and singing in the morning. Have a safe trip back to your country and we wish you to come back again to Yogyakarta next year.
