There are several other transportations means, like Grabs (cars), Motorbikes (Ojeks), rickshaws, but more expensive. Transjogja bus are well organized and can get you anywhere in town, for only 3.500 IDR/pp (0,25€) (you can even change once for the price).

Prices tended to be higher in this close to-high season, as we told in a previous post (here).

Due to the holidays here in Indonesia, we struggled to find a place to sleep at first.  We stayed at the « Omah Heritage » Guesthouse, 189.000 IDR/night(12€) and at the « Ndalem Suwarno » Homestay, 150.000 IDR/night (~9€) (within the first week, but dropped down to 125.000 (~8€) after). In both situations, we could only find a private room with shared bathroom, but nice and comfy.
