  • My eval is based considering this is a budget hotel. As a Budget hotel in India it was really a great option. I hve stayed in other hotels and hostels in India and I think this one may be the best I stayed at in terms of best value for price. Very safe and staff is very friendly and helpfull in every sense, and they do not harrass u like in other places to sell u other services. Wifi is fre and fadt and very strong signal. Food is excellent reliable at a fair price.

  • Warning-watch out for the owner trying to scam you! I booked a basic single room on hostels.com for 275R. when I arrived, they didn't have any details of web bookings, and told me they had sold out all the cheap single rooms, only having 'expensive' rooms left. I said that I had booked for that price so that was all I would pay. It seems as though they just try and get more money out of you when they see you are white-unfortunatley commonplace in India-make sure you stick to the price you book
