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.

The rooms are very clean and if you want to have peaceful environment outside the hustle - bustle of the city, then this is the place for you! The dinner provided by this hostel is just amazing and the high speed wifi just adds to its charm.

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,...
