Warmly welcomed by the friendly smiles of the staff you will be guaranteed a good stay. Read here everything you need to know about Trava House Yogyakarta, the perfect budget accommodation for couples and backpackers on a budget.
Trava House – The Rooms
For anyone looking for a quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Yogyakarta, Trava House is the place for you. With only 4 private rooms and 1 dorm (for 4 people), you will be guaranteed a quiet and peaceful stay. The private rooms are all equipped with a double bed, two plugs to charge your phone and all your other gear and a fan. Above the doors there is an opening, which has been closed with mesh, to prevent from mosquitoes entering your room. Please note that the rooms do not have A/C, but with the temperatures being much lower in the evening we realized we didn’t need A/C, and the fan was enough to keep us cool in the room.
The rooms are all decorated in an industrial style, a bed made out of concrete, with concrete and white walls combined with warm wooden tones of the window shutters and barn style doors. There is also a convenient small rack, located next to the door to dry your towels on, and place some of your amenities for easy access. The rooms, although small, felt rather warm and cozy and the comfy beds and firm pillows guaranteed us a good night sleep.
The rooms do not have a private bathroom, but instead share 2 showers and 2 toilets, located in the next hall over. The showers are the waterfall type of showers, and with only cold water, a perfect refresher after a warm and sweaty day in the city of Yogyakarta. Staff was cleaning the common rooms and facilities on a daily basis. Find some photos of the rooms below to give you a better idea of the space.

But you don’t have to worry about breakfast, the wonderful staff has this covered.
Every morning between 8am and noon we were served a different, and each just as tasty, breakfast. It ranged from fresh fruits with coconut rice wrapped in banana leaves, to small treats or delicious yellow rice with a range of savory treats. Every morning the breakfast was served with fresh juice. During our stay we had the pleasure of enjoying 4 different types of breakfasts and every morning we were happily surprised with the delicious treats that awaited us.
