This place is awful in terms of almost everything- extremely over priced, rude and unhelpful staff, unclean and dingy rooms, and the wifi only worked in the lobby. The only positive thing is it's proximity to the Taj. Wouldn't recommend this place at all!

Great hotel. Excellent value for money. Clean rooms with good amenities. Very close to Taj. Walking distance from Taj. You can it from the hotel. Great service. Staff is very attentive. Restaurant has very nice food. Very safe place. All the go to places in Agra are very close by. I am coming back in six months and will stay here again.

Spent only one night here to visit the Taj. Location is awesome, only 700m from east gate and easy walk to restaurants at south gate area. We came in at 0600 and had to pay an extra 300R for early check in which is reasonable I guess. There's a partial view of Taj from rooftop. Got breakfast at their restaurant which was ok, nothing special but not bad either. Staff could be more engaging, kept to themselves mostly.

It's near the taj mahal, you can walk to buy the tickets and visit it. Didn't do much more. The hotel next to it has a better view from their restaurant. Better sheets good be nice.

Location was quite excellent for the Taj Mahal and other sights in Agra can be reached for just a couple hundred rupees and the staff were pretty helpful, as well. The room and wash closet were not very clean or particularly nice and there was a stream of ants that made their way to my bed on my last night there. Overall, a nice place but I have heard from others that better places in Agra can be found for equal or better prices.

I stayed here for one night. It's situated about ten minutes walk from the Taj Mahal which is perfect and the facilities where decent. I didn't try the restaurant but it looked affordable and clean. The six bed dorm came with a towel and blanket and the shower was hot although the bathroom did smell like rotten eggs. All in all great value.

This is a great place to stay for short visit in Agra as it is 5-10 min walk to Taj Mahal. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and it was perfectly fine. On the second floor there is a "restaurant" where you can have cheap meals and breakfast. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. As a western woman travelling alone I felt safe and comfortable at Rashmi!

On the way to the hostel, there were tonnes of stray dogs at night. They might follow you. You will hear dogs barking all night long. Low-pressure drippinng shower (when multiple showers were used) was frustrating. You can hear chitchattings, laughters and other kind of sounds clearly from next room through bathroom. Other than the location (near to Taj Mahal), thumbs-down.

The family that own the hostel are lovely, the location is fantastic, the rooms were clean and the hot water worked. The manager is a complete douche although he is a lot nicer when his boss is around, go figure.

The only dormitory guesthouse we came across in India- but why? Wicked opportunity to meet new people. Rooms were average size and our bathroom was small and it stank. Location wise is the lick- about 3 min walk to the taj ticket office and just over 5 mins walk to east gate! Stay for 2 nights; on the first day wonder around and buy your tickets for the Taj Mahal but don't go until the second day! Get to the gate early on the second day to beat the queue madness to see at sunrise!

we got food poisoning and we suspect it was from this place! (chicken). Other than that the hotel is average at best.

Convenient place to stay if you're headed to the Taj. The WiFi is good, and was up most of the time. Sheets were clean, but the blankets are the big puffy kind that rarely get washed (common in India), so if that kind of stuff bothers you, you'll be more comfortable with a liner. Only small complaint was the dankness of the bathroom and room upon entering. I was in the six person mixed dorm. Water was hot. Food at restaurant was decent. Would recommend if wanting few frills stay close to Taj.

is is a good place to stay if you want to see the taj mahal in the morning. it is very close to the south gate and at the hotel they are very friendly to help you with organizing your trip. The rooms are clean and the food at the hotel is OK. I stayed one night and i was pleased. Good value, friendly people and good location

Really didn't like this one. Stayed in a 6 bed dorm and the cut out section above the door (same as all rooms I think) opened straight into the main area of the hostel where the overnight staff were yelling at each other across three levels all night. Freezing cold, no hot water (despite the staff saying over and over that there was, the wifi didn't work and bar being close to the Taj Mahal, the location wasn't great. Won't be heading back.
