Stayed here before travelling to Bromo. It is very clean and the beds are very comfortable. Only a few minutes walk from a big shopping centre. Most importantly, the staff are so so helpful! They gave us loads of information on how to get to Bromo etc. Would recommend!

“The Inn is by the busy main road, we had a room nearest to the main road and was pleasantly surprised that it was quiet inside. Light sleepers might want to consider getting the rooms in the back of the house.”

“There are only 2 or 3 rooms - get any room, it won't make that much of a difference - during low season, there's a good chance you'll have the entire room to yourself (which happened to us). During high season, try to check in early if you want the lower bunks. The higher bunks looks uncomfortable.”
