    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!!

    Overall is good. Design, decoration and cleanliness is good, wifi works fast. The feeling is like a hotel more than just a hostel. Anyway, is a nice place to stay for a night before i catch my flight on the next day morning.

    Stayed here the first 2 nights when I got to Surabaya, I arranged for someone to meet me and give me a lift to the guest house from the airport for a fee of course. Very helpful and accommodating staff. Great breakfast, with lots of other restaurants within walking distance. Would recommend the guest house for any traveller.

    I had a really pleasant stay here. It was a great place to relax for a day and do some planning for the rest of my trip. The guesthouse is quiet, clean and the air con works well. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The owner gave me specific directions about how to get to Bromo on my own. Breakfast was great and there are a few places to eat around the guesthouse as well.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Ikiru to Live, including tasty breakfasts and outstanding assitance from the staff. Our room was very clean and secure, and each of my friends received their own complementary key. The staff even went above and beyond by driving me to a nearby fruit market to bargain!

    The most hospitable host I've ever seen. I was shocked to be offered an entire room with one bed, though I switched to the dorm myself. I needed to find a flight or train back to Bali as all were full due to end of the year. She personally drove me to the agency with her friends, showed me around etc to make sure I had no problem.

    Nice place for a night - clean rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast is nice. Not much atmosphere and nothing really to do/see nearby but you can get to Mt Bromo in 4-5 hours, it's close to the airport and you can fly to more popular destinations (Bali, Lombok etc) in about an hour. Overall I'd say the hostel is fine but wouldn't recommend the city.

    Good room, good wifi, good value, good breakfast. Weird vibe, communication problems cause no english, outside center or activities. I guess oriented on domestic tourists. Good to spend the night before a flight I guess
