Hely couldn't have been more helpful when we stayed at his beautiful home for two nights. He explained about transport options to Dieng & Borobodur, local food & places to eat. Also agreed to hold room for us when our flight arrived very late. To top it all, he's a pleasure to chat with. Often home stay are basic, so the stylish room, good hot shower & comfortable beds surpassed our expectations. As happens everywhere weve slept in Indonesian you will be woken at dawn by the call to prayer. Here it was a relatively short broadcast, so we could get back to enjoying the sounds of rustling trees from the lovely garden outside the room. One tip - our taxi driver didn't know how to find the home stay, as the sign outside entrance is quite discrete. If arriving after sunset, as we did, perhaps Google Map the address & give name of the mosque alongside to your driver, and that might help make your arrival smoother

Well let's be honest , if you're looking for luxury this is not your place to stay. But if you're looking to stay in an indonesian home with a friendly host I can definitely recommend this place. First of all the setting is really nice. Hely has collected really nice memorabilia displayed everywhere. The rooms are spatious and clean and the bed is decent enough. You also have a nice patio in the garden in front of your room. The shower had good warm water pressure. Hely the owner is very friendly and will help you with all u need regarding the area (he helped us with our questions regarding the dieng plateau, wonosobo, and so on) The room had no aircon and there where few mosquitoes, but they are everywhere in wonosobo as it is pretty humid here. Would definitely come back.

We stayed here one night to visit Dieng Plateau. Location is good, everything is on walking distance, including the bus to Dieng. The owner is very friendly. Rooms and common area are nice decorated. Breakfast was included in the price.

My second time in Wonosobo. Hotels here are scarce especially decent ones. And if they are decent, they are generally costly. Locals recommended this and it is the PERFECT type of homestay accommodation to go with a small town lifestyle. Not only affordable but also more than decent. We were in a group of ten and took four rooms. Duta is located within a five-minute walk to the morning market and another ten minutes to the town square - AlunAlun Wonosobo. There are four bedrooms in the main bungalow and two more mini chalets (charmingly restored rice barns) in the garden - all come with ensuite bathrooms. Mr Elly the owner lives just behind the house in a separate annex and is usually at hand to prepare breakfast or take care of things. The house is lovingly decorated with a myriad of local artefacts, antiques and artwork - a veritable museum. Comfortable chairs and sofas are scattered throughout the spacious living room if you need a quiet spot to read or relax. Rooms are simple but clean and cozy. (While towels are provided, you will need to bring your personal toiletries.) The house is set within a beautifully lush garden - a restful oasis unless the neighbouring muezzin is broadcasting his early hour call to prayer. Privacy could be an issue because the curtains do not close properly. The room interiors can be seen through the common terrace outside. The water pressure is weak and the hot water supply erratic during peak hours. Wished there was a ceiling fan in the room to improve the air circulation. Those were generally the only "issues" we encountered and easily rectified if Mr Elly took action. Would be nice if he did. A five-star rating would then be well-deserved. Nonetheless we would still be back. Without hesitation.

To be fair the house is really spacious and big with adequate common area. Free breakfast, coffee and tea is also a bonus. Hot water is also sufficient and a good thing. However, we didn't get "marveled" by the service provided - it was quite normal (perhaps it was the busy season). More importantly though was that ventilation was extremely bad. There are NO fans in the rooms (not to mention AC) and the mosquito situation is crazy. Once stepped out into the living room, one will definitely get bites so you either have a stuffy room or a mosquito infested room. Even with both garden and main door closed, we still got bitten quite badly. We are surprised that almost no one else has mentioned the above points of no fans and numerous mosquitoes or else we would not have booked the room, not to mention at 350k a night since it was the peak season. Couldn't wait to leave the bites behind although Mr. Helly was nice to let us late checkout due to delay from the minibus not leaving Dieng.
