Diana the hostel owner is a wonderful and helpful lady. She provides tour information, travelling tips. free laundry, towel and (delicious) breakfast. The location is a little far from the center of the city but it's in a beautiful neighborhood which is nice for a walk. Highly recommend!

Friendly staff , Perfect location”
Nevertheless Surabaya city is not a tourist spot. But the friendly owner Miss Dyana may help us as much as she can , give us useful directions , treat us like a family member. You will feel like staying in home, sweet home. The location is nearby the airport so its easy to reach there, if any question you may ask the owner or the staff, they will show you the way to solve it.

Close to the Airport, nice neighborhood”
Good location, since we were looking for something close to the airport. Owner of the house could speak fluent English, however, she wasn't present some of the time and the other staff could not understand us. Still, she helped us find an inexpensive ride to the airport. Rooms are OK, with fan and very much like other hostels. Bathrooms are OK, too, the rest of the house seems to be in renovation and is a little messy. Attention: Don't use the address given in Google Maps if you search for "Da Rifi Hostel" - Use the Street Address provided by agoda and search for that.

it's not good choice to stay at this hostel, they need to upgrade the quality of the house and the building, because comfort and cleanliness will be the important issues,but the owner are friendly hosts, the location is quite far from the city

Feels right at home, has everything we need”
Owner is very friendly and helpful, toiletries, towels, laundry and Wifi available, basic no-frills very value for money.
Our one night stay after going to Bromo was great. We only needed a place to rest before heading to Surabaya airport so the location is wonderful. The hostel provides all the essentials - wifi, towels, toiletries and breakfast included. There are plenty of mosquitoes here - though I think it's not unique to this hostel. Just wear long pants and/or put in plenty of repellent and you'll be alright. Best part is that the price is really affordable. If you are looking for hotel-style comfort, this is not the place for you, be prepared to pay more elsewhere too. But for a no-frills backpacker-style pit stop, it's perfect.

More like a homestay rather den a hostel”
Friendly Host, Hot Shower, Close to Airport
Da Rifi Hostel/Homestay is situated in a residential area close to both the Juanda International airport and Purabaya Bus Terminal. Taxi Ride from either place to the hostel cost 50k or less, so beware for those taxi drivers that may overcharge or going rounds in metered taxi. First impression of the place is not good, as it is low season and I arrived there late in the day around 4pm but my room and bed is not even prepared and ready for the arrival of new guest. The place is also abit untidy and things are lying everywhere. Pros: 1) Close proximity to airport and bus terminal, easy to move on to other places of Java. 2) Plenty of beds and rooms. 3) Hot showers is available. 4) Friendly Host 5) Nearest Minimart is just 5 mins walk away. 6) Free Wifi Cons: 1) Secluded Area, may be hard to find 2) A lot of mosquitoes 3) Windows are not sealed and water can be seen splashing in during heavy rain. 4) Not as clean as I expected. 5) House can be abit untidy and dirty. Overall, its a cheap but average stay, its good if you are just looking for a bed for a night or 2 to serve as a transit point for other areas in east Java.
