Bladok really is a charmer. It is very pretty to look at, the staff is really friendly, helpful, and fair; and it is very clean. It is also unusual in that it offers several levels of service-- for instance, the rooms with the highest rate come with air conditioning, a private balcony, and a Western style bathroom with a hot shower; the room I stayed in, by contrast, was first-floor, Indonesian-style bathroom, cold water, just a fan (no air conditioning). When I was there, you might pay $30 for the best rooms, $9 for one like mine.
The pool out back is great, as is the Western-style restaurant out front (one of the best for Western food in Yogyakarta). Both will facilitate your meeting others if you are traveling alone, as I was.
The staff is great, friendly and helpful. They even helped me retrieve a mobile phone which I foolishly left on a table elsewhere in town-- texting the phone in Bahasa, and offering a motorbike ride back to where I'd left it. Nor did they try to hustle guests into taking particular tours, as some innkeepers in Indonesia do.
All around, a great experience.
