My review of VERY GOOD is quite relative. Don't expect luxury accommodations, by any means. It's the experience and the fun you have for the extremely low price that I give it a good rating. But do expect to meet a lot of interesting people - people that you may end up doing a Bollywood scene with, and sometimes even... More

Some people may complain about this place, but really, it's so cheap. Especially when compared with the rest of Mumbai. I agree it is very basic, with no WiFi, but at these prices you can't complain. Everything is perfectly adequate and there is a lot of other backpackers there. Def recommend.

Red shield salvation army guest house is very good place to stay at prime location of Mumbai- just behind the Taj hotel, Colaba. They peovide rooms, dormetris, etc. Rooms, as well as toilet blocks are neat & clean. They also provide break-fast(including in your rent). Rs.350 per head at dormitories with break fast. I think no other place provide this,... More

The cheapest accommodation in Mumbai by far but very basic. One toilet for 20 girls in the dorm. Breakfast is included. Great location though, Colaba markets are close and easy to get around from here. You get exactly what you pay for, not great compared to other places for the same price in different cities

I am a regular customer here. Dorms will cost you Rs.350 per head whereas rooms will come above Rs. 500. This include a breakfast which includes bread, banana and egg. You will have a pleasant stay without any worries. But, if you are looking for luxury, this is not your place. Most rewarding is the stories and experiences you hear... More

This is the cheapest budget option in Colaba, and it shows. The included breakfast is passable but bread is untoasted. The staff aren't very helpful and demanded up front payment for everything, including holding our bags for a few hours. The rules are tedious. We had a double room on the third floor- they showed us one on the second... More

We payed 1100 for a double room, its on the cheaper side for Mumbai, the room and bathroom attached was large (we were put into a triple room tho). It was a very dull place and the staff weren't the nicest. The bed sheets didn't seemed to be washed as you could see dirt on them and it was not... More

It may not be the most comfortable or clean guesthouse to be in, but there is no cheaper alternative in Mumbai. Mind you: the average hotel in this mega-city can cost no less than 20 times more than this old guesthouse. And they even give you a (dreary and dull) complimentary breakfast. Shared bedrooms, hot water, etc. All that in... More

The hostel's location is definitely the best thing about it. It's a 5 min walk to the Gateway of India and in the heart of Colaba. The rooms/dorms are slightly too expensive given what they offer. Especially the rooms facing south are very hot. Up to this point, I would rate the hostel 3.5/5. However, the staff screws it up.... More
