We were welcomed by Goyas mum who looked after us during our stay. She was very welcoming and helpful in making us some food when we arrived and breakfast in the mornings. The room was as described clean and tidy not far from the airport. If you are looking for somewhere to stay during a short stop over in Surabaya I would recommend this room.

My stay at room for thought was wonderful. Pre-arrival, Goya was very helpful and friendly, answering my questions with consideration. Goya's mother, who hosted me, is friendly, kind, considerate and was more helpful than I could ever imagine. She really helped me to get on my feet on my first day in Surabaya. I'm very grateful and feel so lucky to have chosen this place to stay. The room is comfortable and clean, with good air con (Goya's mother had cooled the room already in preparation for my arrival) and reliable wifi. The outside area is lovely. Thankyou so much for having me!

We would say they are more than a host, because they really treated us like friends. If you want to experience the genuine Indonesian culture, you must stay with them. It is so considerate that they arranged the transportation between the house and the airport so we can get to the place with ease. Goya's sister, Nila, speaks good English and she introduced so many exotic places and food in Indonesia to us. After knowing our travelling plan, they kindly provided the best arrangement and schedule for us. If you are interested in visiting Mount Bromo, you may consider finding them to arrange a guided tour. Believe me, this will be the best among all other companies offering similar services. If you are not used to bath with cold water, you can ask them to prepare some hot water. They also have two lovely dogs so this is a very good place to stay for dogs lovers. They offer free breakfast and also you can order food there if you feel hungry, so you don't need to bother searching for hot food. Please noted that some of the staff can't speak English well so please get your (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Translator ready, trust me, that helps a lot. We will definitely recommend Goya's House if you want to immerse yourself into the Indonesian local culture.

My partner and I had a lovely stay at Goya's place. Very friendly and homely atmoshere and a nice, peaceful location. The family's pet dogs Miki and Mika were also super cute and love to play. Our bed was really comfortable so we were able to enjoy a good night's sleep. Definitely recommended for those searching for somewhere where you will feel at home!

An unusual, even quirky place, that will appeal to budget travellers who don't mind venturing out of the city centre and are ok with traditional facilities (splashing in a cold water bathroom etc...) . Goya and his sister run their home with charm and good coffee and reliable internet; and are very helpful indeed on all those details that can smooth your path. This is a simple small house furnished with taste. Two dogs liven up the place. As drivers can get confused, use the nearby Hotel Ibis Styles as a reference landmark.

Very nice owner but a bit hard to find without a number of the house in the address

It is a lovely family with a beautiful yard. This is the first stop that I started my adventure at East Java. They helped me a lot. My wonderful experience started from here.
