The Guest House

This Guesthouse opened its doors on May 10, 2010. From here everything Yogyakarta has to offer is conveniently within reach: tours, trainings, courses, temples, markets, art exhibitions, performances, beaches, volcanoes, nightlife and more. Please ask us for suggestions on how to best discover Yogyakarta, the cultural capital of Java. 

This guesthouse has 7 rooms, all named after an Indonesian region and illustrated with photos on canvas by photographer Mie Cornoedus. 

Breakfast is served every morning in the garden between 7 and 10 am. 

Our goal is to create a place where people make new friends and meet others to share experiences with. That, we believe, is the essence of travelling. 

The guesthouse is linked to the famous ViaVia Café, located at Jalan Prawirotaman 30. The Café serves delicious food from the Indonesian and world kitchens. There is also a delivery menu in your room, if you prefer a quiet night in. 

The café vibrates with contemporary art and culture, weekly live jazz, exhibitions, performances and more. Part of the profit goes to the support of cultural and social projects. ViaVia has also become a centre for sustainable tourism in Yogyakarta and Indonesia. Alternative tours, trainings and courses are offered to tourists and locals alike. As our guest, you can take full advantage of the ViaVia staff, which is trained and experienced in taking guests beneath the surface of Javanese cultures. 

ViaVia’s philosophy is to develop an alternative, sustainable tourism with respect for local culture and environment. In line with this, we have made this guesthouse as green as possible using recycled materials, solar energy and separation of garbage. 

Far too often in mass tourism, local people benefit less from the developments. In contrast, the ViaVia Guesthouse has been founded and funded as a cooperative of local women. This is our first adventure into the land of investments that provide us a rare opportunity to secure a better financial future for our families.
