Very hospitable guesthouse. We felt welcome. Also close tot Taj Mahal. Thank you Bilal.
My sheets weren't changed. It was diwali so the owner had not a lot of staff around which is the reason but not an excuse. I told him about the sheets and they changed them immediately. Very friendly staff. Good wifi. Good food. They help where they can. just one minus for the dirty sheets despite that top!
We stayed 2 nights at the hostel, and we liked it a lot. The hostels is just 10 min walking distance to Taj Mahal! Yusuf, the owner was a great help, in anything we needed. The staff in general were welcoming and kind. Food wasn't great and a bit overpriced compared to other restaurants in the area. But we'd definitely stay there again.
Its a hostel owned by a family that can't be nicer!! They are very welcoming and helpfull, they treat you really really good. The hostel is very near to the taj mahal, you can go walking in 10-15 min. The only problem we had is that the room that we had, was not clean. We imagine that maybe was a mistake or something because we saw good reviews of this place, but in our experience, is something that they can do better
Very nice family made me feel at home. The first room I did not like but got another one when mentioning this. Wifi connection not that good and electricity sometimes out. But I think that's just the local area problem and not the hostel.
nice Family, very welcoming. I enjoyed the time there :)
great place to stay, i would encourage the hostel to build a nice rooftop restaurant at the top.
Friends Paying Guesthouse is the best choice if you want to have a nice, cheap and centrally located hostel in Agra. Only 10 minutes to the Taj Mahal and the whole staff is very friendly and helpful. The food was also really good. jeep on like this!

I booked the room for one night on 31st July. I arrived at night 10:00pm. The check-out and check-in times are 10:00am in that hotel. Still I was being given a room which had been used by their staff before I arrived. The toilet was dirty. I told the manager to change the room, but he did not do that and misbehaved with me. Very very rude attitude he had shown. I never got such a rude behavior in anywhere. I never suggest my friends to stay in this hotel in future.

I was very disappointed with this place, got hassled a lot from the young guy who seems in charge. He was particularity unpleasant and devious. He owed me money and said he would give a bottle of water, I accepted. But he tried to pass off tap water in a bottle for mineral water and claimed he had opened it for me. It was clearly tap water and was typical of his deceitful nature since arriving. The room was appalling, I would say there are prettier prison cells in Indian. Avoid this place
Basic rooms but a friendly family to help out in whatever you might need.
