Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Good Homestay and Tour
We stayed for 1 night in this homestay to wath the sunrise in Borobudur temple, because this homestay was very close to temple, only 5 minute walk. Our first expectation was only enjoy the sunrise from Punthuk Stumbu Hill, but Ika the host showed us more many interesting villages nearby Borobudur temple. We really excited that Ika showed us the tobacco farm, traditional tofu production and pottery maker (even we can practice to create a pot), I never knew these villages if Ika didn't show to us. Thanks Ika for the good tour, we really enjoy to stay at hour place and off course the great tour.

Amazing stay with amazing host
We stayed at Efata Homestay longer than expected when we met Ika and his beautiful family. Ika has a beautiful heart and he was more than a great host to us. He showed us the area of Borobudur as a guide, as a friend, and we visited hidden temples, rice terraces, tofu house, pottery-making in small villages around Borobudur. We feel privileged to have met Ika during our stay in Java and recommend this homestay to everybody !!! You will have a traditional, very comfortable and very warm home stay.

Hôte et emplacement géniaux !
Nous sommes deux amies à avoir séjournées chez Ika et sa famille. Nous avons apprécié sa gentillesse et sa volonté de partager sa culture. Le petit typique est très bon. L'emplacement est idéal pour le temple de Borobudur. Il manquait juste de l'eau chaude dans la chambre mais ça restait très bien. Merci encore Ika !

Felt welcome from the first minute
I only stayed for one night at Ikas house but I won't forget his hospitality and his nice family. He is really eager to show people that Borobodur is not only about the temple but also about the indonesian life in villages. After watching the sunrise on Setumbu hill, he took me around to the nearby villages and I could watch men producing tofu. I really enjoyed my time there and would recommend anyone who wants to learn a bit more about indonesian life or who wants to relax outside Jogja, surrounded by the beautiful landscape to go there. Thanks Ika for the time and your great hospitality!
