i found this lovely guesthouse from airbnb while searching for a place to stay while in jogjakarta. rates have hiked up and everything was fully booked. but there're slot for the dates i want in this place, so i asked through whatsapp. after negotiating for a while, my book was placed.home. far away from home
(tip for locals, ask through whatsapp/call to get cheaper rates!)
the place is what homey all about. although it lies just five minutes from the bustling tourist spot malioboro, the place was quiet, homey, and clean. the alley where it's located might look shady, but once you reached the place, it was an absolute getaway. the room was small but managed to fit for 3 people with extra bed. they also provide free breakfast with limited selection of indonesian and western cuisine. they were excellent. i also sleep peacefully every night. also the design, the design!! everything is top notch in its simplicity. jogjakarta's own modesty.
i don't take many photos because we're practically going places on 2,5 days of our stay in jogjakarta. but the photos in airbnb and instagram can give you glimpse about the place.
funny story. when i checked-in on path app, a friend commented that this place was her aunt's and her cousin was the architect. funny how coincidences met.
