Friendly staff, homely food, clean rooms and common areas. I was happy to find such a nice accommodation away from the noisy and congested city. Close to Indian Statistical Institute. The staff were always willing to help.

Cleanest room I had in India! Food is decent and reasonably priced, and the warden and his son are nice people. The only downsides would be the location (far from the city center, easily reached by bus though), and not being allowed to bring your own dood into the premises. But overall its a great stay and I would very... More

Its a nice and quiet place to make your stay, situated near the main city area. The rooms, washrooms are very clean and the staff is also very coordinating. Also its rate is quiet affordable!! Food is hygienic and tasty. It truly endorses its tag line - A home away from your home.

Wow!!! Youth Hostel Kolkata had the best food and best accomodation within a limited budget. Great value for money. People are calm, cordial and very helpful. The hostel is very affordable and the facilities are great. The managers talk to you and make you very comfortable. Its a home away from home.
