Welcome to SAE SAE Hostel! Your next home away from home.


We are located in the south of Yogyakarta or “Jogja”, considered the cultural center of Java. Down a small alley, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, SAE SAE is just a short walk from the Sultan’s Palace and the Prawirotaman tourist area where you can find lots of local warungs/food stalls and restaurants with international fare. We are a smaller hostel, priding ourselves on the warm, family-like atmosphere that helps guests to feel instantly at home. While SAE SAE is fully equipped to ensure guests a comfortable place to rest, it is more than just a place to sleep.


The SAE SAE family is always ready and willing to share their inside tips and knowledge about what to see, do and eat in Yogyakarta and its surroundings. Our primary goal is to ensure that our guests will have a memorable and pleasant stay. We have a spacious common area in the middle of our green garden, where guests come together to unwind and share stories after being out and about all day. Our garden is a space where strangers become friends and the world becomes a little smaller as our network continues to expand with each guest that stops by. Looking fellow travelers in the eye like they are future friends: that’s what we are all about!

We hope to see you soon at SAE SAE so that we can share all that Jogja has to offer – delicious cheap food, tons of culture and art, and a community of individuals who truly embody the spirit of Jogja – kindness, humility, and pride in an amazing cultural heritage.
