Great place to base yourself for exploring Agra. 5 minute walk to the Taj with the local shops right on your doorstep. Ankil was a great host, very polite with his sole focus being on you enjoying your stay. Local knowledge and always points you in the right direction

We stayed in Lucky for one night. The room was very dirty, sheets and pilows werent't changed despite we asked for a change. We had to pay for the toilet paper. In the room we had extremely noisy fan and pseudo ac which heated the room instead of cooling it and was also very loud (we couldn't sleep all night). Toilet was a dump and there was no water in the shower in the morning. Staff closed us in the building with metal bars so we couldn't go out for a train. The wifi was cut off after 10 pm


It serves its purpose well by being affordable, clean & a literal 3-minute-walk from the Taj Mahal. Hot water & wifi appreciated. The rest is not that impressive. A mosquito-infested (no net) room on a busy hallway & an extremely loud fan made sleeping impossible. Also, most of the people sitting at the reception didn't feel responsible for me at all. At least the founder is a nice, welcoming man. I definately wouldn't stay more than one night there, but that's enough for Agra's major sights.


the shower door wouldn't close and you had to pay for toilet roll!!! Its noisy as its close to the Taj but the location is well worth it! they advertise a twin room but be prepared to share a big double bed with the worst pillows which felt like concrete!!


Nice room, clean, hot water available whenever :-) Nice place to stay at Agra, very close to Taj Mahal.


Small, dingy room but with hot water and clean. Food good and cheap.


Very friendly and helpfull staff. Especially the owner is a really cheerful and outgoing man. He also speeks English well. The food was good and we could even order things for "sick bellies" :) The rooftop wiev of Taj Mahal is great and the room, though a little dark, was cosy and quite clean.

The is one of the closest hostels to the taj mahal, literally only 5 mins walk away. The hostel owner was very friendly and gave us most of his life's story! The food in the attached restaurant was also pretty good. Our bed had bed bugs though, and there were loads of other bugs around in the restaurant and in the rooms.


We really enjoyed our stay at Lucky Guest House! The location was perfect, with only a couple of minutes walk from Taj Mahal. The staff was wonderful and service-minded - and the food was delicious! If I ever visit Agra again, I most definitely know where I'll be staying.
