Galaxy is a decent place if your looking to meet fellow foreigners doing community work but the hotel staff is not friendly and the property is not hygienic and clean. It is ok for the price but because of the how the staff treated us it ruined our experience. We wanted to have friends over who were staying at a... More

What an awesome place! It was clean, affordable, and the staff was the best part! It was home for me and my large group of service workers for 2 weeks in Late May. The heat was a struggle and the efficient air conditioning at Hotel Galaxy made our stay so comfortable. The staff was so accommodating! If there was ever... More

We stayed here for 5 weeks from April 2015 and had a great time. The owners are lovely, Harry is the nicest man- we went to yoga with him in maiden and at the end of our trip he even drove us to the train station. The hostel is in the best location with loads of restaurants, some bars and... More

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.
