Our stay at N.Homestay hostel added a truly an amazing experience to our stay in Agra. Coming from the Netherlands, we stayed in Agra for 3 and half days in May 2013 and Shiron and his Mother (and his Father) were the most gracious and helpful hosts one could wish for. He helped us from beginning to end, from arranging our transportation from the airport in New Delhi, to our return trip and every step in between. He help us to arrange our daily tours and activities and giving the most useful tips to maximize our Agra experience in the short few days we had their. He went out of his way to make our stay as pleasant and accommodating as possible, providing us with tips on how to explore economically and how to bargain so we would not be taken advantage of while still giving a fair price to vendors. Shiron is a very honest person, who can tell you exactly what is fair or not, and after my stay with him we can wholeheartedly say, he is a trustworthy person that can be relied on for good information while in the Agra area. We cannot begin to say enough about Shiron and N.Homestay. It is located in a very convenient space, which makes it very easy to get around. And the rooms were very comfortable, clean and peaceful to sleep in. They showed us a few of the rooms they had available and allowed us to choose this remarkable room with a great balcony where you could sit and enjoy the weather while enjoying a mango drink (thank you Shiron for keeping the fridge well stocked with these and water, much needed and appreciated). Also we have to thank his mother for breakfast every morning, and for their suggestions on restaurants to eat at.
Also we noticed another reviewer was critical of Homestay. We think that person might have been having a bad day and been a little bit irrational for some reason because their account is not even close to what we can imagine or experienced while staying there.
A little bit of advice, on the trip advisor site it seems to keep saying that it cannot confirm availability of rooms and suggests some other places to look at, this is incorrect and I have emailed trip advisor about this on their behalf. Please take the time to go directly to N.Homestay website to check on availability because told us that they could not confirm availability even though a simple email to Shiron through their website allowed us to book a room.
We recommend staying here and when we are back in the area we look forward to staying here again. Thank you for the experience Shiron (and Mom). Look forward to coming back.
