I arrived at Surabaya late at night and it doesnt matter because this hostel was near to the Juanda airport.
The owner, Mrs Dyana was very friendly and offered us drinks and food as we arrived.
The room was ok, the bathroom next to our room needed repair but the corridor was clean and free wifi!
Breakfast consists of bread, fried noodle, fried rice fruits and lots of crackers. So many choices for only RM21 / night!
Mrs Dyana suggest us to share a rental car with another tourist from Korea since our destination is the same, hence can share the rental also. And here goes the best part, the driver insist that we took 2 cars (its cost 650k Rupiah/day each!). But Mrs Dyana spoke very firmly with the driver that 1 car is enough. The battle went for almost 10 minutes and at last the driver agreed with our plan.
I can't thank her enough for having our back and stand up for her guest. That really amazed me.
We saved a lot with the transportation fees and all thanks to Mrs Dyana!
