This hostel is built on the roof of another hotel and is a nice place to stay. Eventhough the breakfast is not included, it is worth coming here for different reasons. First, the beds are very comfortable. Then, from time to time there is a imam from a nearby village which maybe invites you to come to his village. He is an english teacher and might ask you to come to his english school. We went there on a sunday and felt a bit bad because all the children had to show up especially for us on a free day.
Anyway, if you take a single bed it is possible that you will sleep very high above the ground. If you roll around during sleep, the hight might be a bit scary. Since there is only one bed with mosquito net, we highly recommend to bring along your own. The walls are made of bamboo and everything just flies in. In the morning you will hear the muezin loud and clear, which will help to stand up early.
It's a good base to go to Gunung Bromo. After a sunrise tour to Bromo you might want to take earplugs along.
All in all we enjoyed our stay here.
