Joseph and Bilal and their wonderful family are some of the friendliest, warmest and most genuine people you could wish to meet! We are a couple and stayed for 2 nights, the Taj Mahal booking office is only 5 mins walk away and then you can get a free golf cart to the (quieter) east gate.
The internet only works in the communal area but this didn't matter to us as the communal area is comfy and sociable, the food (cooked by Joseph's mum) is tasty but a little overpriced, our room was adequate but in need of a lick of paint, the bathroom was a little dirty with a rotten door and the flush didn't work. All in all I would say this place is a great place for budget travelers but dont expect the world! You get what you pay for, watch this space for their new rooms currently being built. Joseph organised a tour for us which was at a good price and ran very smoothly.
