After a warm welcome by the staff we could choose between a room with private or shared bathroom. We chose the latter and this shared facility was in fact one of the cleanest we had so far (and we always pick the private ones). They have a lovely garden where you can relax and use free wifi. I would recommend... More

I have stayed in rumah ayam, which is located just behind the viavia café and yoga room. I had a lot of privacy with a little terrace, own kitchen and one room with a big bed, desk, cupboard to store my belongings and a nice bathroom. I liked the natural light on the ceiling and the feeling of having an... More

I stayed here for 5 days in Sulawesi room. The rooms are clean and simple with a lovely outdoor and private ensuite. Breakfast is included, I paid 225,000 per night from memory including breakfast. It's near plenty of good restaurants and infrastructure but down a quiet laneway. The staff are friendly and fun. The only challenge for some may be... More

Had a wonderful time at this guesthouse, set in a quiet gang just off a street full of warungs, (honest) money changers, tour operators and cafes. The staff were so helpful, and organised a range of local activities for us to do in addition to the excellent tours offered at the versatile ViaVia Cafe 150m away. Our room (Papua) was... More

Really enjoyed my four nights here. It's just off Prawirotaman south of the centre, plenty of great restaurants (including the ViaVia cafe), cafes and bars. Could walk to the Kraton etc in 30 mins, sounds long, but it's a nice walk and you can always hop on a scooter or horsecart/cidomo if not. The streets off Malioboro are so hectic... More

My wife and I stayed at ViaVia over the New Year for 6 nights. We are a mature couple and are used to staying at a wide range of accommodation types. We thought we would try the studio (Rumah Ayam) as a low cost option, supporting an NGO and somewhere that advertised as 'quiet' in the middle of the city.... More

ViaVia is a combination guesthouse and restaurant on the ever-popular Jalan Prawirotaman in Yogyakarta. There are plenty of other options, but this is by far, the best! It is run by women-only and does as much as possible to support the local economy, cultural understanding of minorities, and the local people in a safe, strategic way. ViaVia is a small-scale...
