    Very lovely staff. They helped my buddy out when he left his hiking boots and also gave excellent advice for food and directions.

    Staff are super friendly, always going out there way to help you! Enjoyed my stay here. Very helpful with stuff like hiring scooters to take to Bromo. Our dorm was pretty empty but I imagine it would be annoying if more people stayed as the beds are very close together. Toilet and showers are in the same cubicle so toilets were wet but nevertheless were cleaned regularly.

    This hostel was nice. The staff were so kind and helpful. I was only here for one night and I did not go many places, so I cannot make enough comments on the places around, but at least the hostel itself was good. Bonus that there were curtains so I had privacy. Thank you again to the staff, you were very helpful and genuine.

    Stayed for one night and over all satisfied. They give you big lockers that you can probably fit your bag in. The room was pretty awkwardly set up so there isn't much floor space but I fortunately got a bed with space. They offer a pop mie sort of breakfast which was a nice bonus. Facilities was good, nothing negative to say about them. Location is pretty good as its on the main road. I was a little confused as it says it's somewhere else on hostel world than where it really is.

    Rooms and beds were fine but toilet floors where constantly wet. Staff where helpful enough but the cheaper dorm doesn't come with a blanket or locker without paying extra. Booked a trip through this hostel and had a really awful time. Probably though a different company but still would definitely avoid the bromo ijen tour. Really poorly organised.

    Many of the staff don’t speak good English. The toilets were not clean. There is no atmosphere in the hostel. Beds were comfy. It’s close to the rainbow village.

    There are better hostels in Malang, we were checking in and they tried to force us to book a Bromo tour just kept asking and asking didn’t like that we said no. They showed us to our dorm and it was like a hospital ward, blood on the curtains on the bunks! It was pretty awful. The bathroom/toilets were disgusting. No blankets were given to us. Hardly had any sleep because of mosquitoes biting and flying around. We actually left a day early because it was just awful!

    It is dirty, and there are blood stains on the curtains. Bathrooms were not clean. It is not a cozy place, no place to chill besides a few tables next to the busy main road. Surprised how this hostel got a 9 as rating!
