Excellent Staff, Location and Value for Money”

I'm a photographer, after doing my project in Surabaya I extend my trip for 1 day to take photo in Surabaya. Livinn is an excellent choice since the location is near places of interest. The staff is no doubt one of the best staff hostel I ever visit, friendly & helpful. Some of my concern are the toilet in 2nd floor is wet & stink, there's no soap available. I woke up 5am because of the noise and hot. The noise is because there are 2 big group was staying there, most of them is senior citizen, I think they not used to stay in backpacker hostel that have some basic rules like noice etc, early in the morning these 2 groups is getting ready to do their activity. My pod is hot because the AC suddenly not working properly, so I asked the staff downstairs and they quickly fixed the AC. One of the reasons I decided to stay here is I saw the photo that they have locker and smart card (I need it because I want to leave my laptop), turn out they only have 4 locker for one room.

Great hostel, Noisy locals,poor cleanliness”

been staying here everytime i visit surabaya, the problems is always be the same: cleanliness of the toilet, noisy local traveler (especially those who brings child into the dormitory room, like, really??), and the careless staff regarding the hostel condition This hostel should make a restrictions about the child who stay in the dormitory room, local traveler are usually the ones who makes a lot of noises and its pretty awful when you just wanna have a peaceful sleep. Positive side of this hostel is the affordable price with the great location in the center of surabaya, just across the old side door of surabaya gubeng station. Ac 24/7 and very cold, which is not a bad thing. Bed is also very comfortable and spacious. As i've said before,they have a potential to be the best hostel in surabaya and attracts a lot of global traveler but they need to fix all the problems they had

Good capsule hostel”

Cheap accommodation suitable for fellow backpackers. This place is under the same.management of My Studio Hostel Surabaya. I personally like this place better than My Studio because it is easier to reach gubeng station from (it is easier to cross the road to gubeng). It is also literally behind Grand City Mall, so it is another convenient at hand.

People who stays at the dormitory, especially the locals one, are very noisy all day everydy. they make my stay and my sleep disturbed and staffs wouldnt even care! cleanliness also the main problem here, ive stay here for second time and toilet was a mess and freakin dirty, and always wet everytime i come in. The cigarettes rubbish is everywhere in the second floor, what a disturbing scenery Staffs always smiling, but didnt reallly care about the condition of the hostel. they always seems to only receive the checkin and check out process, thats it! they wouldnt care about the condition around them positive side is the location that very close to surabaya gubeng train station and grand city mall. its also very close to some of the great surabaya culinary destination. bed is also very comfortable and curtain give a privacy that much needed. ac is always strong 24/7 and for me thats a great matter As long as they fix the problems, possibly they can become the best hostel in surabaya. they should !

Good location and value for money”

Stayed at Livinn on 2 separate nights. The bunk was comfortable, though the bed sheet is slightly dirty looking. On our first night we were not given the 2 towels. Upon asking, staff told us towels only available the next day at 7am. But we were tired traveler that needed to take a shower in the evening. End up we bought 2 new towels from the mall next to the hostel. When we went back to the hostel that night, we saw new guest checked in and staff given the guest clean towel. That's totally unfair! When we went back for the 2nd night stay 2 days later. Same thing happen that we do not have towels upon checking in. Staff again said no more towel. Staff told us will bring the towels to us later that night. But we have to go request for it rather than they proactive and it to us when the towel were made available. Other than that we were quite happy with our stay. The inconsiderate noise made by mainly local traveller were expected.

Clean room, cheap, perfect location”

I was staying in double bed, and apparently not quiet enough to sleep for 2 adults + 1 child ( 4yo ) so we rent another bed. The aircon in the room i was staying setup automatically off every 1 hour. It was annoyed us.. because the room has no window or fan at all. So when the aircon turned off, it was very fuggy and hot. The bathroom very limited. 2 bathroom + 2 closet for maybe 20 person ? Although the bathroom always being cleaned up in the morning.. for that many people use it, it goes very dirty at mid day. I think the hostel should clean it at least 3 times a day. Bread for breakfast was OK, and tea & coffee 24 hours free.. and the rest was great. I Couldn't ask for more for that cheap price.

The price is very cheap compared to the quality. The location is the best where you can walk 1 minute to the Grand city mall. The bunk bed is very private with curtain and it smells nice. I love the most that there is a rule of no noise, no food inside the bed area. Most guests here are respectful. Staffs are very helpful and friendly. I appreciated very much when they helped me speak with the local taxi. Bath room and toilet is clean. Fare breakfast and 24 hour tea and coffee. Highly recommend everyone to stay here.

Very good”

The location is really near from Gubeng Station, walk-able, but if you're using car / motorcycle 'ojek", good luck in finding the location because the road nearby is one way only and you'll need to "turn around", a bit. The receptionist is really helping and so kind, there are lot of snacks and drinks that can be bought there. Check-in and check-out process is really easy. When some of the reviewers complaining about the "wet" and "smelly" bathroom. I don't find it. Maybe it's better to have some "mat" or "keset" in front of the room. One of the minus is, no locker at all. We have to put our luggage on the bed which is quite disappointing. The other minus that I experienced was the other guests who are staying longer than I am is way too noisy and couldn't read the "must be silent after 10PM time". I can sleep only after taking some sleeping pills before. Overall, it's a good hostel, but only good for 1 night only, not for long terms stay.
