only for an overnight stay

location: close to train station, airconditioning, wifi
Reasonably dirty hostel, only suitable for an overnight stay if you have to catch a train in the morning. Location is perfect, and it's nice that the wifi and aircon are working just fine. Didn't dare to touch the breakfast, so bring your own or buy it at the station. Could've sworn I saw a rat disappearing behind the corner in the staircase.

Partly Sparkling

Location. Shopping mall 1/2 block away for eats, Near Gubeng train depot
Only there one night and had little time, but did manage to walk along the river where I located the Loving Hut vegetarian restaurant for a fantastic meal. Up early for train to Banyuwangi next morning so left before breakfast was served. My room was nice, with TV, but the bathroom down the hall was far from "sparkling" and with no toilet paper. Bring your own. For the price, it was a fine place to spend a night. If you are going to be taking the train towards Bali, be mindful there are TWO Gubeng stations. The EASY one to get to is not the one, unfortunately, and the newer one to buy tickets and to board the Banyuwangi/Bali train is not connected by tunnel or bridge, so case it out the day before as you will have to do a longer walk to loop around to the newer station. Might want to use a taxi, not because it's far but confusing.
