Sleeping bags

I will be flying into Mumbai in December and spending a month in India travelling up to Delhi. Is it necessary to have a sleeping bag if I am staying in budget accommodation?

If you have a budget of Rs 800-1000 per night, you should be able to get clean (ok not squeaky clean always, but passable clean!) linen in most hotels. I use the sleeping bag mostly for train travel - that's if I am travelling by non a/c sleeper class. In all the a/c compartments they provide you with beddings and hand towels.

I'm past the stage of roughing it out, but I'd advise you bring your own little bedspread (a single spread). Some budget hotels can be grungy. Where possible, book the YMCA / YWCA hostels, or the Ginger hotel chain.
