    I had the most unforgettable stay with Yuvi at Ikiru! Beside everything being super clean and nice, the breakfast being amazing, same as the location. Yuvi also helped me organizing my Mt. Bromo trip and my train ticket and everything else, sat down with me for hours even calling the hotels for me. My trip would have not worked out that well if she didn‘t help me that much I am so grateful to have stayed with her!!

    I stayed at Ikiru To Live for one night before catching my flight the next morning. The place is super clean, I was the only one who booked the "dorm" with 3 beds and a sharing toilet. So I actually scored the whole room and the toilet to myself. Bed is great, room is spacious, lockers and towels are provided! Love the hospitality here. There is also a communal kitchen where you can help yourself to coffee, tea, and refill of hot/cold water. Breakfast is awesome! Thanks Yufi for the great stay!

    Very clean, really friendly helpful staff, but a bit hard to find and far from things. Perfect if you’re in Surabaya for a night or two.

    I cannot say much about location as I stayed just overnight after arriving to Surabaya, but I have to highlight staff. Even security guard didn't speak much English, he called his boss and she came to help me even tho it was 11pm already. She helped me with train ticket to malang (paid for it from her card as I dont have Indonesian one and I paid her back in cash), scheduled for me taxi to the station, woke up early to prepare breakfast at 6am. Coffe&tea avaliable 24/7 ... 5*

    Very cute and hostile hostel. I booked a standard private room which was really nice. Unfortunately there were no other backpackers so I haven’t met many people. Staff was helpful but couldn’t speak english that well, still with google translate it was easy to communicate. I really liked the free tea and coffee, breakfast was also very nice, they make it on time for you!

    Host was really lovely and helped me plan the next stages of my trip. Great place to rest your head for a couple days after a long flight. Clean and breakfast is provided, tea and coffee whenever you want. Obviously Not a party hostel just a chilled one, not much around the area but yeah good to nap and catch Up on sleep in a clean cool room

    Hostel room and bathroom were clean, with decent air conditioning. Breakfast was a nice Indonesian dish provided by the caretaker. Hot water, coffee, and tea were available 24/7. Not much around neighborhood to explore, as Jalan Raya Ngagel Jaya (main road) lacks sidewalks to good walking areas to the city center where the submarine monument is located, or the Stasiun Gubeng Baru (main train station served by the national railroad, Kerata Api). Indonesia in general has open sewers.

    A nice, clean place to rest for a night or two. Not so much of a hostel - as no other guests around, and I booked a 3 bed dorm and they tried to put into a shared twin room. The staff are lovely but don't speak much English. However if the manager is around she will go out of her way to help :)
