We stayed at YHK for our one night in Kolkata and while it is away from most of the busier areas of the city the rooms were very clean and comfortable, not to mention the price was very reasonable. The location was helpful to us as it was closer to the airport and we were leaving India the following day.... More

YHK is a truly first-rate hosteling experience, with clean rooms, delicious food and a safe environment. A short walk down a quiet lane from the hustle and bustle of B.T. road, YHK also caters to specific requests ie do you need help shipping items back home? Rana (Owner) is happy to assist..do you like hot Chai after your meal? They... More

YHK is located in Sinthi More just minutes from the Dum Dum Metro Station in Northern Calcutta. Although it is a bit of a trek to get to the center of the city, the hostel offers a very safe and clean stay. Safe drinking water is available day and night and the food also caters to the road weary and... More

I was on a backpacking trip to the North East with Kolkata as my pit stop. I spent one night each at Youth Hostel Kolkata while going as well as returning. The hostel is very clean. The food is simple, tasty and healthy. The staff is very polite. I felt extremely comfortable and safe in spite of being alone.

This became our base in kolkata. It's not situated in the hectic center so you can escape and retreat whenever you want. The neighborhood is very cute. The hostel is probably the cleanest in India and the food is great. The staff is extremely kind and friendly. Even if not all speak English they do their best to make you... More

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
