Close to the Airport, nice neighborhood
Good location, since we were looking for something close to the airport. Owner of the house could speak fluent English, however, she wasn't present some of the time and the other staff could not understand us. Still, she helped us find an inexpensive ride to the airport. Rooms are OK, with fan and very much like other hostels. Bathrooms are OK, too, the rest of the house seems to be in renovation and is a little messy. Attention: Don't use the address given in Google Maps if you search for "Da Rifi Hostel" - Use the Street Address provided by agoda and search for that.

Nice, Nice.
The owner was super friendly and helpful. The location is excellent for sightseeing. but Surabaya is not a tourist destination anyway. I really enjoyed staying here.

it's not good choice to stay at this hostel, they need to upgrade the quality of the house and the building, because comfort and cleanliness will be the important issues,but the owner are friendly hosts, the location is quite far from the city

Feels right at home, has everything we need
Owner is very friendly and helpful, toiletries, towels, laundry and Wifi available, basic no-frills very value for money.
Our one night stay after going to Bromo was great. We only needed a place to rest before heading to Surabaya airport so the location is wonderful. The hostel provides all the essentials - wifi, towels, toiletries and breakfast included. There are plenty of mosquitoes here - though I think it's not unique to this hostel. Just wear long pants and/or put in plenty of repellent and you'll be alright. Best part is that the price is really affordable. If you are looking for hotel-style comfort, this is not the place for you, be prepared to pay more elsewhere too. But for a no-frills backpacker-style pit stop, it's perfect.
