You can use Cendrawasih Taxi. The fare from the airport to Jalan Kaliurang Km 5,5 (Retra’s Hostel) is approximately IDR 55,000 (please be advised they rise the fare on high season). The fares are area-based.

Cendrawasih Taxi booth is located next to Roti ‘O’ outlet at the domestic arrival terminal.
