Although rooms are clean and comfy compared to what you can find in Kolkata, this is not a good place to stay for many reasons: 1.Overpriced 2. Owners are a bunch of lyers. We arrived at 9am and agreed to stay in a small room with TV for INR 800. We made clear that tv was an issue as we... More

This was our last stop in India after 2months. The staff were really friendly and we paid R1100 per night for me and my wife in an air con room with private bathroom. It was in a great location near the metro and many restaurants. We arrived from Howrah and got the ferry across the river and walked. It only... More

The hotel is in a location where you can easily walk to several cafes, shops, the market, and the mother house (just to name a few). Although the hotel is not considered "fancy" by american standards (somewhat dirty, european style showers, etc), Harry and his staff are wonderful. They are so welcoming and friendly that you will feel right at... More

I stayed at galaxy between October and December 2014. I was recommended this place by a friend. This was my first trip to india, and I admit that I was a bit frightened at first sight. Very basic, and in the midst of renovations. Also I was a 24 year old blonde girl travelling alone and I kept getting approached... More

I have to admit that my first impression was not the best. The room was quite small, bathroom a bit dirty, doors let every sound through. But this is all forgotten after drinking a chai in the morning with the owner and finding amazing people who want to show you around and make you feel happy. Don't forget to have... More

We had a nice time at hotel galaxy. Before we stayed several nights in a > Rs 2000,- hotel wich was actually worst then galaxy! So totally worth the Rs 800! Only downside where the sometimes noisy longstay volunteers at they entrance/common room who where audible in our room.

This place is always busy and it's easy to see why it is. It's seems a bit run down, and could do with a refurb or some paint.. But maybe that's part of its charm? Harry is lovely, and so helpful and accommodating, he also takes people to a yoga class in the mornings that he goes to. There is... More

If you would take a tour and see as many budget hotels in suroundings of Sudder st. as you can, finally you' get scared. Galaxi seems to be the only decent option in the area. Rooms are of different sizes and quality, caracteristics reflected in priceof a certain room. We had one on the first foloor for 800 rupies(one with... More

On our 6 week trip to India this was the last place we stayed at and it was surprisingly one of the nicest budget hotels we stayed in. The room was modern and well lit. The bathroom was spacious, clean, modern and had hot water. The staff were quite kind and always helpful. Also the corner near the main street... More
