Stay here to do a Bromo/Ijen tour (& avoid scams)

The wonderful / friendly owner!
This is easily the best guest house I have stayed at mainly b/c it’s more of a “fun business” for the owner who likes to travel & owns the property, but would only get a ridiculously low yield if he rented it out. If he’s not trading stocks (as the market is bad now) or running his other businesses, he’s more than happy to take guests out for free to show them around town or get something to eat with them. On different days, he took me and other guests to some outdoor eating places in a ritzy area of West Surabaya; to see some temples and get food in East Surabaya; and then to the House of Sampoerna, the port area (overloaded wooden ships) and to a well known local milk fish restaurant. The main reason to stay here though is to do a Bromo/Ijen tour with an operator he sends A LOT of business too – meaning you avoid the hassles and rip offs if you went yourself or tried to find your own tour. The owner will also sit down and show you on Google Earth the places you will visit and outline all the scams / tricks / ripoffs to avoid plus he has folders full of all the info you need about tourist attractions in Surabaya etc. I had booked for about 5 nights on Agoda and just left my stuff in his office + the room locker to do the 3D/2N tour. Breakfast consists of noodles with an egg + coffee or tea. There is free water + a kitchen area, but no soap/shampoo in the bathrooms (towels are provided). Two of the bunks in the rooms are rather close together, but I don’t see that being a big issue. One thing to note: Mosquitoes are REALLY BAD (no surprise for a tropical lowland area) in the evening if you sit outside - I brought repellent + a plug-in device that uses mats for the room in case any got inside.

All you can ask for, had a great transit stay!

CLEAN toilets, helpful front desk, good location
I stayed for 1 night in a private room with shared bathroom after returning from a 3 day trip to Mount Ijen and Bromo. Check in was a breeze and room was simple, clean and comfy. The inn is actually a landed house with rooms converted into dorms or private rooms. What surprised me was the toilet was so clean, didn't even need bathroom slippers and there were more than enough bathrooms for everyone. This was a rare find with regards to most of the backpacking inn and hostels I've been to. Would definitely return! :)

Family Stay

The owners, staff, value for money.
The Krowi Inn was the start of a 6 week journey across Java and Sumatra. We could not have picked a better place to start. Family room was great value. The staff looked after us at every request. Highlight was the owner Gwan taking us for car ride across Surabaya to eat some great food. Thank you so much.

Service, Cleanliness and Location
Excellent service! I have been to various backpackers hostels throughout south east asia. I can rate Krowi Inn as one of the best! The owners were very friendly. They even offered to give us a ride in his car to buy dinner. The lady boss even welcomed us with open arms. They even went all the way to search for us where we can watch football matches there as their television did not offer BPL action. Very friendly. Free wifi. hot showers. Very informative on what backpackers can do in surabaya. there is a file and 2 computers which shows all the various places we can do in Surabaya in detail, how to get there, etc etc. Breakfast was kinda disappointing. just indomie and an egg. but im not gonna complain as everything else was excellent! Super friendly staff. offered to help us in any way we can. The guests they were having at that time were super friendly too. had a wonderful 2 nights stay there after hiking up Ijen and Bromo.
