We stayed in a private room here, it was spacious and separated from the hostel so very quiet and relaxing. The room did have some ant problems, but they left us alone, and the bathroom was hard to stomach- bring shower shoes even for a private room. The hot water is fantastic though! There's no a/c, but not really necessary... More

Wife, 2 kids and I stayed for 1 night to hike on Merapi. We stayed in one of the back bungalows. Room was sparse, reasonably clean, and bug free. Waking up with calls to prayer and roosters crowing through the night was fun and nice and added to the experience. Hiking with Christian's son was pretty dang rigorous and we... More

The room is quite basic, I.e. no linen in dorm room. And not very clean. Bathroom is shared, but this is expected. However, the food is good. And the tour is interesting, it is hiking combined with sightseeing, so it is pretty interesting. Cozy village atmosphere

Instead Christian helped me to call a friend and arrange almost 50% discount for a jeep tour, which i ended up enjoying... More

They prefer take a 'Jeep' to climb up to Merapi mountain. I wanna try something new, so I did trekking to the Merapi Mountain. As I know, only in Vogels provided trekking package,... More

We arrived by taxi from Yogyakarta late afternoon and had dinner at the hostel. The food was superb. We stayed in the green bungalow, upstairs which was simple and comfortable, and for the price we... More

We booked over the phone the white bungalow plus a Merapi's sunrise trekking. First, the place is simple and has everything you need. Second, the food was way one of the best we had in Indonesia, incredible, ask for the special menu. Also, the trekking was quite an experience.
