I have stayed in here for 3 days 2 night with my family. The location is good, near Ciputra World Shopping Mall, where you can easily find food for eat, but for you who travelled backpack, i think this location is quit far for some Surabaya attraction (Museum Sampoerna, Suramadu national bridge, Pakuwon food festival, Sanggar Agung Temple, etc). You need to rent a car to explore Surabaya from here, because the transport is doesn't support yet for tourist.
This homestay is quit clean and it have a helpfull receptionist, feel free for ask something. The price for the rooms are affodable and quite cheap. They have more than 15 rooms. The bathroom is clean enough, they also provided hot and cold water for shower, liquid soap and shampoo, and also towel.
There is a television and a thermos. Every morning you will get breakfast(bread), you musk ask so they will bring it into your room. Wifi also provided, you must ask for the password to login. The service is good overall.
