We paid 1100 rupees for a double room with breakfast. There is no bathroom attached to the room, so you have to walk through the coridor to take a shower. Breakfast is very basic, does not worth the price of the room. It is better to look around and you will find something cheaper.

This was one of the most expensive rooms we stayed in whilst in India, and probably the worst. The room was drab, basic and with a shared bathroom. The staff were not unfriendly, but not helpful either, and the draconian rules were strictly enforced (e.g. Check out time 9am sharp). The included breakfast was barely edible. Not recommended - but... More

I stayed at the hostel with a group of 5 friends for 2 nights. We looked at the double rooms, one of which was quite malodorous, but then we visited the "family room" which was great. We paid 500 rupees per person. The room was large, had an attached bathroom, and was clean. There were 5 single beds and a... More

Despite the bad reviews, we decided to stay here because of a recommendation from a friend. We weren't disappointed. I'm not sure what people expect when you're staying in a Salvation Army guest house? We were shown a room when asked, which was well presented and mostly clean apart from slightly grubby walls. There was an unattached bathroom too and... More

This sums it all up really. Guys managing here are colossal cunts, and they just want your money. If you ask them, they'll tell you the room is good, when you ask them to show it to you, they will get offended and ask you to leave. Shambolic. Ymca at the same price is 1000 times better. DO NOT STAY... More

Stayed here for one night and was glad it wasn't any longer. Bedrooms were dirty. I got bitten to hell and back during the night by bedbugs - I could actually feel them on me as I was trying to get to sleep. Bathrooms had no lights, no towels, no soap - just a bucket and a cold tap. Breakfast... More

Worst people ever in India ! Very rude and unpleasant ! But it is a good price and location so it is up to you. They yell at people to follow their rules and they are just interested in your money. The nice people are the backpackers you meet there.

Cheapest digs in Mumbai. Good value and does the job well. Includes simple (but satisfactory) breakfast and security is good. You'll struggle with reasonably priced acc. in Mumbai especially if you're a lone traveller - most hang out here. At time of writing dorm bed was 250IRS including breakfast.
