The location could not be better! It was even possible for us to be the first people in front of Taj Mahal in the morning! Very good food as well. Modern (deluxe) rooms with A/C. Everything is (according to Indian standards) very clean. Wi-Fi is quite fast but works only in the common area. Staff are friendly for the most part (with one exception). Very good value for money!

Paid 850 rs for a night stay, room is compact and basic with TV and AC, the location is the best, 2 mins walk to the government travel office with the free shuttle to the taj, but if you walk it is only about 15 mins away. Food is OK, the menu has both non-veg and veg but they do serve only veg during my stay.

I really enjoyed my time at Hotel Rashmi/Flying Elephant Hostel. The service was great, very friendly staff (towels and toilet paper included). I had a single room and paid 570. Nice bathroom. Clean. Good powered above the bed. Very close to the Taj Mahal ticket office (they drive you just shy of the Taj Mahal for free, although it is in walking distance.

Worth staying here. My best accomadation in India thus far.

Room Tip: I heard the dorms were good, cheap. I just wanted to have my own space and got a single room, but it...

This is a pretty good place for backpackers.

I had an AC dorm room (4 beds) for 300 Rupees (though it the off season). Other people in my room seem to have paid different prices. Up to 450 Rupees I think.

There is free wifi. I didn't use it but other people said it cut out now and then.

There is one computer for internet (connection is decent for India). 30 rupees per hour.

It's not the cleanest hotel I've stayed at in India, but for the price it is very good.

There is a restaurant in the hotel which is good, reasonably cheap, and very convenient.

The location is good. It is about 80 meters from an official place to buy tickets for the Taj Mahal. From that place you take a (free) electric vehicle about 1 km to the Taj Mahal.

Staff is friendly. Would stay again. Recommended.

Room Tip: It might be worth trying to bargain over price.

I stayed at this a/c hotel two nights and enjoyed it very much. It is only a kilometer from Taj Mahal, the price is good and the staff is very friendly. During our stay we had multiple practical matters such as train booking, arrangements of tours and laundry and this was no problem for the staff to solve. They were friendly and helpful plus served some good beers at their rooftop restaurant with a view at Taj Mahal. All in all I can highly recommend this hotel.

We arrived at Hotel Rashmi at about 2am as our previous hotel had given our room away. Shown to a basic but comfortable room with a very good cooler. The food here in the restaurant upstairs is fantastic and excellent value for money. Would recommend to travellers on a budget.

Room Tip: Good coolers so make sure you ask for one!
