Went with a group of friends to Mumbai last year and was taken aback at the price of this hotel, in spite of being so close to the CST station. Although the management seemed a little strict, they were helpful and kind. Ten of us stayed together in one room - the dormitory - and

I stayed here last week for 6 days. And that was my third visit here. This is one of the best place if you are looking for a cheap and safe place. The whole premises and toilets are always kept clean. However the only issue i had this time is that, i called them two days prior

Hi Surya, Thank you for the wonderful review and the support we receive from guests like you. I am extremely sorry that a single room promised was not kept reserved for you despite giving the assurance. Next time take the name of the person taking your booking, or write to info@newvasantashram.com My sincere apologises once again.

I felt like this hostel was very authentic, especially as it was mostly Indians staying there. The location was perfect for me and the staff were as helpful as I needed them to be, only downside is how incredibly hard the mattresses are but maybe that’s part of the authenticity.

Hi Tom! The hotel is authentic! Its been hosting guests from all over since it opened in January 1947. Yes! a 70 year old hotel . Im sorry you found the mattress hard. Cotton mattresses do need to be rehauled every 3-4 years. I will look into it. Thank you for staying with us.

We found New Vasantashram to be a good little hostel that was in a great location and at a very affordable price. Rooms were basic and there were Indian squat toilets, which we were expecting from the reviews. The hostel had a nice charm to it and I loved the decor and dorms

Thank you Megan for choosing to stay with us. I am extremely sorry that you were disturbed by the cleaning staff. My sincere apologies. I guess this was pre Diwali and its that time of the year when all households offices shops in India have their annual complete cleaning done. Next year, will see to it that the room is cleared of guests n beds the previous evening so there is minimal noise. As for the noise from the adjacent room, wish you had complained to the front desk. Hope you and your boyfriend had a great time travelling through India.
