We found this environment quite oppressive- there are many rules only mentioned after you pay. Rules of note state: a) the staff are allowed to search your room at anytime but b) no one is responsible if your belongings go missing. c) You are prohibited from bringing any food or drinks into the hostel d) if you are not married,...

We have been in the hostel for two weeks with our group and enjoyed the good food, the clean rooms an hospitality of the staff. The hostel is easy to reach by bus or taxi, so after our visit to the centre we returned to the hostel by saying; ' let's go home'.

I was having some major travel problems when a friend had their passport stolen upon arrival. I had informally booked with the hostel through email for a couple nights, but when I arrived, I searched for hours for a taxi that knew where this was at. In the end, we had to find another place, as no taxi could find... More

Dear Guest, We are really sorry for making you fill uncomfortable. As a matter of fact we have accepted your booking with a belief that you’ll pay on arrival. Booking was for one person and you have arrived alone. But later your friend arrived and wanted to share room with you. So we have asked to make entry in our... More

Rooms are very big and are cleaned every day, WiFi is available (though not in the rooms upstairs), the area is nice and safe. Food and staff are alright.

The location was helpful to us as it was closer to the airport and we were leaving India the following day.... More
