    A nice hotel, good value for money”

    I had a pleasant stay at Wayang Homestay for seven nights. Room is clean, staff are kind and always ready to assist. They can also speak and understand English well. Wayang serves Indonesian breakfast. Jek is a good cook! Coffee and tea are available 24hr a day. Location is about 2km away from malioboro. one can easily get a grab bike for 6k when going to Malioboro or Kraton. Wayang is near Jl. Tirtodipuran, where restaurants, antique, batik, and crafts store are located. Thank you jek, rita and frisda for making my stay in jogja a pleasant one.

    Wayang Homestay is located on a quiet street yet walking distance to the Palace and Prawirotaman. Staff is EXTREMELY helpful and friendly, from providing tourist and shopping information and booking cabs to loaning me their adapter from the office so that i could charge my phone in my room. The rooms are clean, with hot showers (a bit temperamental though) and TV. I will definitely stay here again when i visit Jogja again.

    Cool Homestay with Great Value & Warm Hospitality”

    Good value, great staff and cool place

    Booked 3 rooms for 2 nights with complimentary traditional set breakfast in a nicely decorated bungalow of 6 rooms. Average sized but clean rooms and Wayang homestay organised our 2 days 12 hours daily tours with airport pick-up included for a very reasonable price. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood outside city centre and please get advice from their super kind and friendly staff on good eateries within walking distance nearby or use the bicycle provided. Complimentary coffee and tea are also provided all day long. We really enjoyed our stay here, a very big Thank You to Mr. Jack and Ms. Julia for their warm hospitality and not forgetting our driver/guide, Mr. Jarot of Sokka Tours for his excellent tour of Jogja. Highly recommended homestay in Jogja.

The food was really good. Stayed 3 night there and never disappoint with their food. All the staffs are really helpful. Will help u as much as they can to make sure u're making a good memories in Yogya.

    Cheap rates, delicious breakfast and helpful staff

    First we received a room upstairs with broken tv remote, they moved us to ground floor. The room was small for extra bed but we didn't mind, bathroom was clean, breakfast and staff help were outstanding. It's distance from tourist attraction but it feels like home away from home as it's located in housing area.

    I fell in love with wayang when i arrived at the doorstep. Wonderful house. Wonderful room. Jack was there waiting when my partner and I arrived at 2am. He has the best smile. He and his team made us stay more nights than we had planned and we were happy to do that. The price is unbeatable. Breakfast prepared by Jack were perfect even during the Ramadhan. Jogja is already a wonderful place and Wayang makes it even enchanting. Will definitely go back

    If you're looking for an affordable, clean, and 'homey' atmosphere, The Wayang will be a perfect choice. Located in the very heart of the local community, you could observe the local people's daily life. It's not too far from the local attraction and you can rent the bikes for free. Highly recommended.

    We will always stay in the Wayang. We just loved the place. Especially the comfort Jack and his family gave us. They are wonderful people. Jack runs this homestay and a brilliant guuy. No wonder he has repeated customers. I met so many who just came back for his warmth...Jack is a rockstar :).. Anyways. we just loved the homestay , especially my 3.5 year old son.

    There are many things which are enjoyable about this accommodation. The location is good, nice quite spot with easy access to all attractions in and around yogyakarta. The hosts are extremely nice and make you feel at home straight away. I had the experience of needing something urgently and J even ran out and got it for me and I didn't even have to ask. I cant emphasize how nice and friendly the people are. Among other things the place is very clean and as for the important extras; Aircon is good, wifi is very fast, free water and tea and coffee. What more could you want? Great stay.

    The place is a little far from Malioboro Street but near Tirtodipuran, Prawirotaman and Parangtritis Streets where you can find lots of great restaurants. You can use their bikes to go around the city free of charge. You can also book a Borobudur and Prambanan tour with them upon check-in. We were attended by Jek during the duration of our stay who was great and was very accommodating. Stayed first week of January, 2016.

    Our stay was very nice, we stayed 3 nights at the homestay. The staff is very friendly and show a great effort to make the stay pleasant, but the lack of english made it a bit difficult sometimes. The breakfast was always fresh cooked local food and very delicious. A minus was that there was no cleaning of the room while the stay. We would stay there again!

    Nice place!”

    Friendly staff, nice breakfast, other travelers

    The Wayang is a nice place and great for travelers on a budget. It's well located, nearby Jalan Tirtodipuran (sp), which is a street with several nice restaurants and bars, and it's tucked away from any main road, so noise is not an issue. The rooms are ok, but not superb -- the water pressure for the shower comes and goes and water is not hot, and the staff are a little bit difficult to communicate with, as English is not their first language. Breakfast in the morning is great, the staff rents out scooters on behalf of a nearby business (and at a good rate!), and they're willing to arrange laundry service, and taxi cabs as well, which was great! All in all, I recommend the Wayang as a good budget option.
