Where to Stay in Yogyakarta

Where to stay in Yogyakarta is at the Delta Homestay in Yogyakarta. That’s my recommendation anyway, and I’ll tell you why…

We were so pleased with the Delta Homestay in Yogyakarta that I have decided to make it my ‘Where to Stay in Yogyakarta’ recommendation.

We booked via booking.com but if you do a search online you will find that this place is offered just about everywhere.

The pool at Delta Homestay in Yogyakarta

The Delta Homestay in Yogyakarta is budget accommodation, it is basic accommodation and it was very cheap!

So I don’t want you under any illusions that I am taking you to some kind of palace.

But for only 12€ per double room per night including breakfast, I don’t think you can really go wrong here.

What was included:

The Delta Homestay completely exceeded our backpacker expectations:

Included in the price was: breakfast, use of the swimming pool and sun loungers, free wifi, house keeping every day, air-conditioning, fan, hot/cold shower, en suite bathroom, bottled water in the room every day, safety deposit box behind reception and complimentary tea and cake served on our own small terrace every afternoon.

And yes, as I said before, the price was 12€ per night. So if you were wondering where to stay in Yogyakarta, wonder no more.

Delta Homestay

Delta Homestay is part of a small chain of four hotels/guesthouses in the same area of Yogyakarta. The Duta Garden Hotel & Boutique Villa is the more upmarket hotel, and the other too are of a lower but good standard too. Delta Homestay is like the poor little sister, but we were more than happy.

Delta Homestay is on Jalan Prawirotaman II also known as Jalan Gerilya and it is NOT easy to find – ask my taxi driver! We drove past the street several times until we spotted it.

If this helps, it is the street parallel to the busy Jalan Prawirotaman where the travel agency Via Via is located.

The entrance to the Delta Homestay is set back a bit from the road and, like many guesthouses in this country, just has a small sign and a large concrete nothingness out front to park cars.

Once you enter the building, you are greeted with a warm, rustic lounge with some classic good quality furniture. This is where the reception is. The staff were all great.

Then you follow an outdoor passage to the rooms, taking you on a gravely path lined with a well cared for garden with stepping stones past the tiny outdoor terraces belonging to each room. Following the path takes you to the large bar area, where breakfast is served and where the swimming pool is.

The Rooms

The rooms are tiny, with two single beds taking up most of the space and just a little room for your backpack and its contents.

The rooms have air-con and a fan. There is a tiny en suite bathroom with a toilet, shower and sink. The walls are paper-thin and you can even hear your neighbour brush his teeth! However, we get what we pay for, don’t we? I still stand by what I say: this is where to stay in Yogyakarta.

One entire wall of the room is dedicated to a painted fresco. And the decoration in the public areas is very nice too.

Breakfast at the Delta Homestay

Breakfast was included in our price of 12€ per night and was made to order according to the previous night’s request form which we had to fill in every night.

Breakfast is served in the bar area by the pool from 06:00 to 10:00 but when you fill out your form the night before, you have to advise them of the time you would like to eat.


So what are you waiting for? Now you know where to stay in Yogyakarta, get it booked!
