We stayed 3 nights here - rooms are clean and nice and you can get quite good food at a cheap price, but the service leaves a bad impression on the whole stay. The older man (who probably owns the place) is very nice but he isn't there very often and the guy who runs the place instead is rude... More

Me and my husband stayed for 2 weeks in Youth Hostel Kolkata last month and it was over all really good experience. Everyone was really kind and consentrate about us. Food is good but they don't change it too much if you stay for a long time. We can really recommend this especially when travelling with family or if you... More

During my visit in India I have come to Youth Hostel Kolkata 4 times and I was always welcomed with respect and friendlyness. There is a good connection to all the interesting places via cycle-/autoricksha and metro (Dum-Dum), or buses. The rooms are quiet and spotlessly clean. Stuff is friendly and helpful. Will be my choice again if I come... More

My stay in Kolkata, turned out to be really good..and thanks to YH Kolkata. Under the able guidance of Shri. Ashok Bose, the boys here are very helpful. The most important USP of this place is the 'CLEANLINESS'. It starts from keeping your footwear in their cupboard, and using their slippers while you are in the place!!! Very weill thought... More

I had a day stay at this Youth Hostel. As I was travelling alone and every new to Kolkata, Mr. Ahsok took good care and made sure of the safety. The room was so clean with hot water for shower. It was pretty quiet although it was in near the city. As a vegetarian, I had tasty vegetarian food. In... More

I stayed here for 2 nights when I first landed in Kolkata in mid September. I t is far away from central Kolkata and they staff are unhelpful and not friendly which is contrary to my previous hostel experiences. They were almost reluctant to engage with us and if we asked for a cup of tea it took around 30... More

People are very nice and kind, and I really felt at home. Room was very clean and comfortable and it was good to have 3 windows in my room. Food was also very nice! And they sell some lovely things, maybe you can buy even Kalimba soon. I'd love to come back here again!

We arrived after a long journey and they seemed more interested in insisting I put my shoes inside my bag than actually booking me in. They were surly and unfriendly and could us no local information. This hostel does seem a long way from a anywhere and I could not get any transport for 7 rupee to Dum Dum station.... More

This as been my 4 th stay here. After a long busy day it is always nice to get back here and have some well prepared simple dinner. Very clean and safe especialy for single lady travellers. You can also get to a friendly chat with Mr Ashok and Atun who run the hostel for interesting tips about the city.
