    Breakfast was good and staff was helpful. Most rooms were dirty and toilets did not flush. We walked into a “clean” room only to find a not working toilet and feces still in the toilet after staff had cleaned it. Definitely stayed in cheaper places with better quality

    Fantastic guesthouse in a peaceful environment”
    This is my second time staying at Mercury Guesthouse: a true diamond in the city! The staff are excellent and keep the place clean & very tidy. Thia (Reception manager) is lovely to talk with & will help you. The guesthouse is set in a traditional Javan house. The garden is away from the road: quiet, green & peaceful. I don't need air-conditioning. The room stays cool. Breakfast is excellent. Wifi is good. Atmosphere is terrific! Khaled Alan, London UK.

    No towels provided (nor for rent/sale). No info given at check in. Room is not clean. Only 1 socket in the room which is used for the fan. The pool is nice but no seats provided. Breakfast is poor and not hygienic. Very noisy rooms... Noise comes through ventilation holes, lobby, street, rooms above... Even with ear plugs it is difficult to get some sleep. If you need staff you need to go and search for them. No wifi signal in the rooms.

    Staff helpful but dirty”
    We checked in at 4.30 am without any problem. They don't provide towels and the toilet was filthy, so after 16 hours bus we couldn't get a proper shower. The staff was helpful and even served us breakfast after time because we weren't told until what time it was. The common areas are nice, but the room is old, dirty and not comfortable.

    Best guest house I've ever stayed”
    The affordable prices caught my eyes first. At first, I don't really expect for a good facility, etc, etc ... In fact I was pretty scared I'd be declined (because I read some bad reviews some days ago, but it was like 2013 review?) But, no! The humble and nice staffs were welcome us. The good view, the facilities, breakfast, even a pool are there! (too bad I can't swim in because I got fever) I'd definitely come back if I'm going to have a trip to Jogja again 💕

    Room is old school Indonesia. Dilapidated, but somewhat functional. Attached bathroom in typical state of disrepair. However, for $7 it's fantastic value. Swimming pool, pagodas, and large cool chill out areas, oh and a free fried rice breakfast.

    A wonderful quiet guesthouse with great staff”
    Mercury Guesthouse is set in a traditional Javan house. There is a quiet well-kept garden with a fish pond to add to the tranquility. I enjoyed each day at this guesthouse. The pool next door is good for simple swimming, and the free nasi goreng breakfast is delicious. Thia, the manager, is courteous & kind. She went out of her way to make me feel comfortable. Thank you Thia! I certainly recommend this guesthouse. Cons: wifi was weak. But it's always better to buy a SIM card anyway :)

    Best 1-Star Guest House in a town!”
    It's the best guest house i've ever visited. Affordable prize with two beds, bathroom inside, and single fan and breakfast included. However, the room will be so much cozy if the staff keep all the things tidy and clean. Cherio!!

    The building is nice but poorly looked after. No toilet paper available during 2 days. Breakfast is really poor (fruits + fried rice + bread). Rooms are very basic, dirty and noisy (TV is switched on and loudly all night long). By the way the guesthouse is located in a very good position.

You can use the pool that is the other hotel but the same owner. The building is beautiful, and in the day time a girl that speak good english , in the night a guy that can understand a little bit

    Hot shower inside the room, breakfast with ftuites, rice and toasts with coffee in the center of Yogyakarta I think is already more than enough for their cheap price. After this I closed my eyes on dirty old room wich need to be improve its appearance. By the way they cleaned it perfectly immediately when I asked for room clean. Also staff is very friendly, really helpful and have a good sense of humour. I enjoyed socializing with em. Recommend

    i have been here the last 15 years. several times”
    In the beginning it was one of the most famous authentic backpackers places. those people do not exist a more in that amount as then nowadays in Indo. About 5 years ago I noticed it wasn't my place anymore. stayed away for 3 years and tried it again, ik also had read the comments, the last year. Stayed there now 3 times and I must say : Things have changed, it is still not perfect but You get What you pay. New staff, "clean" rooms but the atmosphere from Years ago is still there. the walk through to there next hotel Wisma Gajah with small swimming pool, pleasant garden and good breakfast is so luvely quitet in the middle of Yogya. especially backpackers and travellers alone Mercury has deserved a New Change. meet you some day there Paulus

    Water heater kadang tidak berfungsi dengan baik. Jika ingin mencari tempat untuk sekedar tidur saja tanpa memprioritaskan fasilitas penginapan maka tempat ini cocok buat Anda. Apalagi kalo mencari tempat yang lokasi nya strategis maka tempat ini cocok banget karena di sekitarnya banyak banget resto dan cafe yang hits, seperti : sellie coffee dan via via (lokasi syuting aadc 2), tempo gelato.

    A basic guesthouse in a good location”
    While I have stayed here many times, it is really only the price and the pool that bring me back. But at over 200k even the price is marginal. The a/c room I stayed in could not be more basic, and while not a big issue, I had no hot water the 10 days I stayed. The pool is not big but is well maintained. Breakfast is at best, very basic, with some fruit, nasi and bread. Omelettes are available at 2000rph. Bring your own coffee! If you are looking for a cheaper option in a good location then Mercury will be fine. If you want some pampering go elsewhere!

    We took a standard room with fan. The sheets wasn't clean,but we ask to change it. The breakfast was ok, some rice (wake up early for that) and toast with jam. We ask for another room,and it was cheaper to book on agoda.
