Kingdom, Here We Come!

Beyond Bali: Now Everyone in Bali Can Afford a Yogyakarta – Central Java Break


(5/27/2012)

Sometimes two developments in the travel industry merge and overlap, creating a synergy that yields incomparable benefits to travelers.

Such a bonanza for both residents and travelers to Bali seeking to visit the Kingdom of Yogyakarta results from the announcement of daily flights between [Bali and Yogyakarta operated by AirAsia Indonesia] and the opening of the Edu Hostel in the Ngampilan sub district of Yogyakarta.

The Airline that pioneered low fares cheap enough “so now everyone can fly” is now offering unheard of low fares between Bali and Yogya. A recent check of fares available during the week of initial week of flight operations revealed a price of Rp. 333,900 each way (US$36.30) for the one-hour flight.

Take such low airfares and combine them with the unique and very affordable approach to hotel accommodation extended by the newly opened Edu Hostel, starting as low as Rp. 70,000 per night (US$7.60) including tax, service and breakfast - and a visit to the cultural treasure trove of Yogya and its environs become truly affordable.

The dream of Indonesian businessman Arman Yahya, who operates the hostel together with his wife and three sons, Edu Hostel defies any efforts at easy categorization. While calling itself a “hostel,” the Yogyakarta establishment is certainly affordable to even the most budget-careful traveler, but does not present the dank one-shared-bathroom-per-floor style of accommodation often associated with hostels in other parts of the globe.

Instead, the bright and cheerful approach employed by the Edu Hostel is more in keeping with a three or four-star hotel, than that of a hostel or pensione. A large modern lobby hosts a phalanx of computers available for use without charge providing high-speed Internet connections for hostel guests. An adjacent lounge is available for those wishing to connect their own devices to the complimentary Wi-Fi connection.

Groups visiting Yogya will find the Edu Hostels two meeting rooms ideal in combination with inexpensively priced full and half-day meeting packages for meetings and corporate gatherings.

A simple Indonesian breakfast is included in the room price, served each morning in the roof top cafeteria together with an ala carte menu for those seeking a wider selection of breakfast options. The multi-level roof top eating area allows enclosed or al fresco seating, both with expansive views of the city of Yogyakarta and its volcano-fringed horizon. The roof top garden also includes a wrap around dipping pool.

But arguably, the best feature of the Edu Hostel is its unbeatable value-for-dollar. The bedrooms available to the guests on three floors of accommodation are both bright and colorful, with large windows, en suite bathrooms, wood panel flooring, and generous storage facilities. The rooms are configured with bunk beds in four-bed or dormitory-style six-bed layouts, presenting comfortable spring latex bedding, linen, towels and warm blankets.

All rooms are air-conditioned, have en suite facilities, and hot and cold water. In contrast to the six-bed dormitory rooms, the four-bed rooms come equipped with 32″ LCD TV with international channels.

The Edu Hostel has a total of 324 beds spread across three floors. Level two is reserved for female guests; level three for men and level four for families and couples.

Security is assured by a reception area staffed 24-hours per day, electronic key cards for access to accommodation floors and individual rooms, and CCTV camera surveillance of the Hostel’s public areas.

Free underground parking for both cars and motorcycles is also provided.

The Price are Unbeatable

Four-bedroom rooms are sold for Rp. 400,000 (US$43.50) per night including government tax and service and daily breakfast for four people.

Individual travelers prepared to share same-sex accommodation in six-bedded dormitory configurations pay only Rp. 70,000 (US$7.60) per person per night for a bed, a lockable private locker equipped with an electrical socket for device recharging, and a daily breakfast.
