All of the guys working here are super kind and friendly. The room are great with generous bathrooms and those added extras that make it jut that little bit nicer; hot water that works, towel, hooks, table, free water and bananas. Good but quite location tucked in a lane off Sudder St.

After a bad experience at another hotel in Kolkata, we checked in to a double room with ensuite at Hotel Galaxy for two nights. We would highly recommend this hostel as the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious. There is drinking water available all day and bananas for free in the mornings. It's a great... More

Met really cool people. This is the best of the budget hostels on Sudder St. The owner, Harry, is super friendly. Loads of volunteers from Mother House if you're keen to meet up. Fair mix of travelers as well. For a very reasonable price, I found the three different rooms I stayed in were all spotlessly clean.

Good budget hotel, don't expect luxury rooms but they are clean and tidy enough if not a little tired. The location is excellent and for a solo backpacker it's a great place to meet people. Lots of volunteers at the nearby Mother Teresa House stay for extended periods. The hotel staff are friendly and will help with any issues you... More

This hotel running by two brothers who are very friendly and corporate. We are happy to their service. Nice people. I stayed there for a couple of weeks and I was very pleased. The rooms are conformable and with a reasonable price. There is no doubt whatsoever that Galaxy Hotel is the best cheap hotel in the area,

I stayed here for 16 nights at Christmas. It’s like walking into your own little oasis in the mist of the chaos of Kolkata. The rooms are spotless clean with hot water which is pure luxury in December. The staff are friendly and kind. The owners are very hands on, which really makes a real difference as you can see...

Backpacker, volunteer (Mother Theresa, Ashalayam and all the other NGOs!) this is your home! I was a volunteer and lived there for 9 months. The staff is great, the rooms perfect (no bed bugs!). There's a dormitory for girls (4 beds) that's really cheap. It's ideally located (city center, near Park Street) and it's 10 minutes from the Mother House.... More

This hotel running by two brothers who are very friendly and coparate. We are happy to their service. Nice people. If you are planning for a budget hotel this one is cheaper from any other one in new market area. According to the price it's nice place to live.

This hotel was very cheap (500 R per night for a room for two persons), but very rough and dirty (the sheets of the bed were either not washed or washed in a way that past dirt was still visible). Not pleasant staff. But very safe (windows with bars and a strong locker)
