First, the good: the pool was nice and a welcome relief on hot days, our double room was very clean, the beds were comfy, the bathroom was very nice (open air shower)! Venezia Garden is a short walk (up and across a busy street) to Prawirotaman where there were a ton of touristy restaurants serving really delicious food (if you need a break from the delicious street food available all over the place). It was really nice to be on a quiet street close to Prawirotaman, rather than staying on it!

Next, the not so good: Getting breakfast was a bit awkward (it wasn't clear who actually worked at the hotel), and breakfast itself wasn't great. Also, the internet was a bit tricky to get on; it seems that their router frequently gets overwhelmed. Finally, on the last day we booked a car for a 4:45 am ride to the airport, and it hadn't showed up by 5:00 at which point we went search for a taxi (so we aren't sure if it ever arrived).

All in all it was a very good stay, with a few hiccoughs.

Although we don't feel like it is likely the best hostel in yogyakarta, it is a nice place to stay. Staff is friendly and helpfull and the atmosphere is good.

However, we got the feeling the success of obtaining the Trip advisor award has had some backlash and they are becoming a bit sloppy. During our stay the tiny swimming pool was not cleaned and rather dirty, hence nobody used it. Furthermore, the rooms are not cleaned very well and the breakfast is not spectacular. Nevertheless, it is a good base to spent some days and enjoy Yogyakarta.

Would avoid this place like the plague! There are way better places to stay for an extra £10 a night. It advertises a pool but what they actually have is 6x1 of stagnant green water. The air con was pointless and when you went to turn the fan to max speed it wouldn't let you. It took two days for the room to cool down enough to actually get a decent nights sleep! I was most annoyed that the girl who said she would arrange our taxi for us the following morning for the airport hadn't actually bothered and we were left stood outside like idiots! We managed to order another taxi but it was 4:30am and we were very lucky. I felt this was unacceptable as we could have missed our flight! Very disappointed especially as it had been recommended by a friend!

Venezia Garden & home stay was very clean, the staff were nice and they have lots of options for places to travel posted on the walls with the prices. They have a pool which is nice on hot days, bikes for rent, nice chill areas inside and outside and they sell cold water, beverages and beer. They are situated away from the backpackers area in a more quite part of town about 400m of the main road. They have a very nice garden as you walk up to the desk with coy fish ponds. They only negative thing was that the wifi was hard to get onto. However they do have a community computer that is free to use by all. I would definitely stay here again.
