The place is new , the dorm nice and clean with personal locker , shower and toilet in . the staff is helpfull and friendly . Great breakfast served in the roof... located not really far from the center... wi-fi is not working very well to be honest but you can use the computer for guests in the lobby room...

This hostel is quite new and well designed. It has modern interior, clean and comfortable bed with personal locker. I stayed in a 6-bed female dorm, with 2 shower room and 1 toilet. The dorm is spacious and has windows. The rooftop dining hall is bright, spacious and good to hang out. It has a 750m dipping pool lane to chill out while enjoying the rooftop views. The hostel serves simple breakfast.

Room Tip: The hostel is within walking distance to Jln Malioboro, about 20 mins or use becak service for IDR10...

Place has everything you need. fast wifi and pc computers. Staff is great very friendly and helpful. The place is clean and has a nice breakfast system and seating upstairs. Also happy to see western style toilets that flushed and hot water.

very good a new brand hostel in jogjakarta. very clean, friendly stuff, nice design and well organized. the hostel rates are reasonable. there have tricycles outside of the hostel waiting and you can hire them to go around the city especially malioboro city. one thing, perhaps they can improve on breakfast. currently only one time for one ticket and cannot refill. hopely they can make it as buffet breakfast.

Hello Junaidi, thank you for taking your time to review us. We have changed our breakfast to rice-based menu to power-up your day. If that is not enough for you, you could top-up your breakfast with omelette, chicken satay, or some other menus. Looking forward to your next stay with us :)

I went for a trip with my friends to Jogja last May, to attend the Vesak day ceremony at the Borobudur temple. At a glance the modern building was far from the word hostel, it looked like a hotel to be honest. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the common room/movie room on the lobby is so comfortable with beanbag chair and the glorious sofa, and wi-fi was available, it really helped to kill my boredom since i had to wait about 4 hours before departing from jogja
the room was very clean, very spacious compared to a standard dorm room i found in Singapore. The bathroom was clean but they might want to check the sewage system since the stench is quite disturbing.
Over all this place is good value for money, nice location, easy access, the availability of public transportation and guarantee for a good sleep.

Pros:
-The staffs are very friendly and helpful. They give us a lot of suggestion on the food and place to visit!
-good facilities like lift,spacious loby and tv area with sofa, few desktop for net surfing, free wifi but only available in the lobby, dining area at roof top, free flow mineral water.
-Good security as each guest's access card only allow them to enter the floor where the room located at.
-The hostel also allow us to leave our luggage at a particular place after we check out.
-They also borrowed us hair dryer for few days
-very comfortable bed!
-huge personal locker in the dorm for each guest(with a plug in it )
-they provide towel, shampoo and body shampoo
-great view from our room, we saw sunset

cons:
-white bed sheet not really clean
-slippery floor in the dorm (my dorm mate nearly fall down when she come down from the bunk bed)
-unpleasant smell in the toilet.
-design of the toilet that causes inconvenient, the bathroom door doesn't has a lock, it has 1 sink and 2 shower place with separated by a wall and curtain.

would be good if the hostel could improve the cleanliness

This hostel has excellent staff, really friendly service. The facilities are modern and clean, It is comfortable and affordable.

And still I checked out after one night. It is simply too remote. And because it was so huge and well ordered it felt impersonal and clinical, lacking character.

Still, probably the best budget option in Yogya. Dorms are hard to come by here.

Room Tip: I was in room 216 and could hardly hear the mosques, which is a plus.
