I considered staying at Providence Homestay for its cheap price, which was suitable to backpacker lovers like me. It was such a reasonable homestay: air-conditioned room, and good wifi connection. I felt like at home here, haha. But I didn't like it, for the location. It is located in a business centre which doesn't fit the backpacker budget. I found... More

Stayed for a couple of nights en route to Probollingo. Room was pretty cheap (one of the cheapest we found in Surabaya), air-con worked well, bathrooms clean and free ice-cold drinking water. Staff friendly and helpful, especially the guy from Flores. Location is so-so, but next to a big mall with plenty of dining options and a supermarket if you... More

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights. The staff was kind, they help me to find the public transportation route (since surbaya had a lot of different tracks for public transportation). The location was a little bit far from the city but if you are brave enough to take some public transportation then it's not a big deal. They... More

This little place is obviously cared for. It is very basic and modest but clean and comfortable for the solo traveler. Shared bathroom. Great wifi. Friendly staff. Quiet. Its back off the street so you don't get the traffic noise. Its just down the street from Ciputra world so there is easy access to coffee and across the street is... More

As an ignorant English traveller who didn't learn the local lingo, it was difficult to a) get the taxi driver to find the place (our taxi man was a bit of a donkey) and b) ask advice on how to get to bagnyuwangi the next morning (by the way, just go to the train station and get the 9am train)....

Providence Homestay is in the back of a slightly crumbling store plaza. Its a storefront style kost, more like a hostel than a homestay or bed and breakfast. Its built into a strip of stores in the plaza- a taxi could find this place easiest by directing them towards Darmo Park 2, dekat Ciputra World Mall. The rooms are small... More
