What you get for the price in this hostel is not topped by any place in a similar price range I have been in India. It is even cleaner than many expensive hotels. The food served here is amazing and adjusted to the visitors taste. The owner knows a lot and shares this knowledge with any asking visitor. I got... More

Youth hostel Kolkata is just superb. It is clean and hygienic. Only 2 places in CCU are clean: Airport and this hostel. We stayed foe 3 days and felt as if we were at home. Food was excellent. Rooms were airy. Hot water was readily available. But if you want a T.V. well you don't have it in your room.... More

Travelled with family n friends. Was quite approachable from the airport, but pretty far from the tourist places in Kolkata. more over the taxis get heavier on pocket, but if one has time, can use the metro etc to reach to desired destinations. Cleanliness of the hostel is excellent, the main reason probably being that the food, tea, coffee etc... More

WE WERE ASKED TO EVEN REMOVE OUR SHOES BEFORE GOING UP! The location is a nightmare. it literally takes more than an hour to reach anywhere from this... More

We feel sorry that you have not enjoyed your stay in our Hostel. Location is adjacent to the Rabindra Bharati University on B.T.Road. Outside shoes are not allowed to keep the hostel clean and hygienic. Bedbugs can only come if someone brings it. Periodically pest-control done by professionals. Instead of sponge we use branded coir mattress for comfort. Shops/ Restaurants/... More

For the second time we had a great experience overhere. Staying with 20 students this was our home for exploring the city, away from all the hassle in the centre of the city, but with good transportation available to go everywhere. The hostel is very clean and the food is good. In two weeks time we never had the same... More

I was booked the hotel through phone & their manager Mr. Ashoke Bose has confirmed the booking. But when reached he told that the room alreay allocated to another person & my booking cancelled. Behaviour of the staff was horrible. Both of them are ineducated & unprofessional. So, book & stay the hotel at your own risk.

This was an amazing trip for me. This hostel was like my home. Girls who travel alone, can surely choose this place to stay. In terms of security its 10 on 10. You will get very healthy food with reasonable price and most importantly this hostel is very clean.I suggest at least visit once.

Hi, I stayed here with my party of 6 between 11th to 15th December 2013 and during our stay we found the staff very attentive and helpful, the rooms and bathrooms were super clean.
