Staying her during Lebaran season few days ago. Hotel was clean and simple, as what it should be. Internet connection is good. I like the location too, closed to the famous Tugu where you can walk along in the evening for having traditional dinner at local "angkringan style" food seller where I like it more compare to the one at Malioboro street. Trans Jogja bus shelter is in walking distance.
The "nasi bungkus" light bite is okay in portion and taste.

The room is a simple cubicle that accommodate up to 3 people. It was clean except in our room was moldy and smelly of the new paint. I noticed that there is leaking at the bathroom wall. We can see the water flowing on the wall. Exhaust fan was not working. I think management need to deal with the leaking more seriously iso repainting the wall.

Clean spacious room. Very happy place. The building is colorful and very airy. The place is quite savy. They have ipads for check ins. Very speedy check ins and check outs too. One bad point is that the shower is clogged.

This is the first Pop! i ever stayed in, it was recently open so some shops on the first floor has not open yet.

To those who expect 5-star service with room boy carrying your luggage and full breakfast, here's the keyword "budget hotel" if you're not sure what it means then you should go out more. Its cheap (i pay IDR 288K), what more do you expect???

anyway, the room is nice & clean, small but functional, have windows, no need to hassle getting toiletries cause they prepare decent ones, service was good, all rooms have windows (yes, you'd be surprised that some budget hotels in Indonesia don't have windows), free internet, service was as good as i expected.

location wise, its not along the malioboro street, but not far from there & the surroundings are quiet at night.

this is definitely one of the budget hotels i wouldn't mind coming back to.
the only problem is for booking, Pop! require 50% down payment in advance (in cash or transfer) which is quite troublesome + i have to re-confirm after i made the payment. they will call (chase) you to make the payment or else it will be cancelled, but then again the call center has good service attitude, so i wouldn't mind.

didnt try the breakfast so cant comment.

Room Tip: Rooms at the first floor are less convenience, cause you can hear people passing by + less privacy cause some of the windows are facing inside the hotel such as breakfast room

I'd like to make a balance, objective rating for this newly opened hotel.
Unlike others who made comments before, I didn't have any issue on early booking process. In fact, the confirmation from the hotel management on my booking and payment was excellent. They also responded quite well on my few enquiries (e.g. extra pillow, bathmat, etc). Even they gave me few references for car rentals.
Hotel location is a bit off from the central of the city, but consider still ok (about 5-10 minutes to Malioboro street by becak - about IDR 10,000 - 15,000 per ride). Not so difficult to get meals nearby, particularly if we're 'easygoing' or backpackers.
As the Hotel is classified as 'budget hotel', it's valued for money (the previous commenters - please consider this). Minimalist with optimizing the space and functionality. For those who expect more services from the hotel (e.g. room services, etc), you should not look for this hotel (or any similar type of hotel); otherwise you'll be disappointed with yourown expectation.
Wi-Fi connection in the room and hotel area is fairly ok, particularly if you don't want to waste your vacation time by browsing and downloading videos.

Now my 'comments for improvement':
- hotel management shall be more deliberate and clear on the 'smoking policy' in the hotel. Expecting guests to read the small, tiny words of signs might not be wise; it will annoy other guests who expect the real 'eco-green' stay in this hotel;
- access card - staying 3 nights, we experienced unpleasant situation when our cards were not functioned (and had to be reprogrammed) - the fact that we have to put 'deposit money' for each card issued, this may not a fair game for guests;
- quick bite: the idea of providing simple breakfast tagged as 'quick bite' is a two thumbs; however the portion is not so fancy - also the selections mostly not 'kid-friendly' as it's spicy and size-wise not so impressive (suggestion to guests: bring your own 'meals' if you really want to have breakfast time in the hotel)

In summary, this hotel is reasonable and fairly ok for those who plan to explore the Jogjakarta city and surroundings optimumly thus will only need a simple-yet-fair beds for rest. Don't expect too much. Compare with other hotels with similar rate, this one is a good consideration.

Enjoy Jogja!

Room Tip: I consider to pick lower floors (1st or 2nd) as you dont need to fight for elevator. Also pick 'big' room numbers to reduce 'noisy' and disturbance created by guest movement.
