  1. Griya Yunika Boutique HomeStay, Yogyakarta (http://griyayunika.com). WMID members stayed in this place during one of our outreach activities. Small, but very nice place. Wifi provided, but no skypeing etc. that consume large bandwidth. Capacity maybe for around 15 people, but there are many nearby hotel (within 1–3 minutes walk) to accommodate more people (say up to 20-30 people meetup). The location is a bit far from the city central of Yogyakarta (need a bit effort to go to downtown or elsewhere), so it can make people concentrate to the program. Assumptions: $1.00 = Rp. 12,000.00
