My fiancé and I recently stayed at Pondok Ijo & we absolutely loved it!
The staff were so welcoming as we arrived, so friendly & helpful through out our stay. Made us feel rite at home. The guest house is off the main roads, making it more peaceful & quiet. The property itself is well laid out, most of the rooms open up onto a crystal clear pool & quaint lil garden. The rooms are not big but are more than comfortable & they offer all you need for a couple nights stay.
The kitchen cooks up some good meals as well if you don’t feel like going out & finding a local warung.
We were more than happy staying at Pondok Ijo & give it two thumbs up.

I have travelled to more than 40 countries and have never encountered a hotel so eager and quick to help me personalize my trip and maximize my experience of a truly beautiful area. First of all, the grounds are wonderful, there is a beautiful little pool, cleaned multiple times daily, surrounded by flowering trees and bougainvillea- breakfast is in a lovely shaded area and provides a variety of local and westernized options, everything I had was delicious. It is in a back neighborhood within easy walking distance to some nice restaurant and some shopping, it was nice to be in a quiet area, making the entire stay seem more authentic and local.
I traveled solo, and had previously found it difficult to add myself to tours to see the sites, the people at the desk were so helpful to ensure I had the best stay possible.

I ended up traveling with Nanda on motorcycle tours to Jomblang, local markets as well as Borobudur and Prambanan temples. He was an excellent driver ensuring safety and a swift ride to each place despite some difficult roads. He made sure to personalize the trips too, adding in stories of local history and legends, pointing out local markets and offering to stop whenever there was a good view or vista. We even stopped off at a local place for food on the way back from Jomblang Caves and as they knew I was traveling alone took me to experience the local food at a restaurant to experience truly authentic and wonderful local dishes, all the while learning more of the Indonesian culture, history and stories of life in Yogyakarta. I cannot recommend this Guest house, and my guide Nanda, enough. If you want a truly authentic experience in Yogya, to feel like you are exploring a second home this is the place to go and this is the guide to get.

It was a great experience for me and hubby to stay at pondok ijo guest house for 4 days and 3 nights. It's a homey and green place, it's like you never leave home. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Always try to make us feel like home and treat us like their family member. Love their hospitality..

Our superior with a garden view room is very excellent, complete with living room, small kitchen, private garden, we love the outdoor bathroom and the fish pond. The toast and eggs is my recommended breakfast to have. The place is also strategic if you want to go to alun alun kidul and surrounded by restaurants, cafe, mosque, and also many street foods. You can also request for laundry, motorcycle/bike/car rent, and trip to many tourism place in jogja, a complete package of services. You will never get any difficulties there. It's a very recommended place to spend your holiday...

For Mr. Harry thank you so much for caring attention and also always hear what we want. Buat mas2 dan mba2 bagian office, "Semangaaattt... dan terus memberikan pelayanan dan keramahan kepada tamu2.." Wish to come back again in the next trip..

First, we book a room for just two nights as we didn't intend to stay in Yogyakarta for longer. However, our stay at Pondok Ijo was so good that we finally extended it to 6 days. And we know people who stay there for 20+ days. It's simply so good. Starting from clean and neat rooms in good, art district location, through excellent swimming pool with best water ever, ending up with friendly, helpful and easygoing staff. This place has simply the best vibe.
