“It's OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We decided to stay at N.Homestay because of all the very positive ratings that people had given. We found Shiron and his mother great hosts, very friendly and informative. However even though we paying a fairly low price, I just found that our room was very basic and had only one strip light in the room, which made the room less than accomodating.

Our room was also next to a drinks fridge in landing which constantly turned itself on throughout the night which didn't help.

However the location to the Taj Mahal was ideal and assisted in the early morning visit.

The homestay is the perfect place to lay back after a tourist packed visit of the seights in agra. The family is very nice and help you with any inquiry. Rooms are clean, some have a cosy balcony. Any time again

Shiron and his mother are doing a great job in hosting this home stay. Shiron is very supportive in organizing a great stay in Agra - from tips where to have dinner to organizing a car to get to your next destination to helping to get train tickets. His Mom is the heart of the home stay - she is preparing the breakfast - and as I should avoid gluten she prepared a lovely gluten free Indian breakfast for us. Thanks a lot for this.
The reason for the three out of five is the overall cleanliness of the place and the rooms - especially in comparison to other places we have been and seen. Agra itself is one of the dirtiest places we have seen in India - therefore you would be really grateful to return to a clean home stay. On the other hand - N-Homestay is one of the cheaper places we have been - so value for money is given. But you should not expect what you get in a place you pay double.
