We had a fabulous time at mass residency, Syd took us around the local neighbourhood for about 5 hours, was great to just chat to him, show us the area and it also put us completely at ease when we (2females) arrived in India. Rooms are basic but clean, we spent so little time in them it didn't matter.
Syed and Shakir who are the owners of Mass Residency are definitely the nices and friendliest people I have seen in any accommodation on this planet earth during last 36 years!!! They are so helpful brothers that they are ready to do almost anything that the visitor will enjoy his or her stay in Mass Residency. For example when I was very tired after 10 hours flight from Europa Shakir picked up some bottles of cold KINGFISHER beer from the shop to my room. THANK YOU! Olli Haapalainen , FINLAND
Mass Residency is absolutely brilliant! Shakir and Shuaib are two of the friendliest and helpful hosts that I have ever come across. There is a very good reason why they rank so high on Hostel world. Value wise, It's pretty good for Bangalore. It's an expensive city so don't expect to get anything decent cheaper. Initially I had only booked two nights and I stayed seven, that's how much I loved it here. If I am ever in Bangalore I would go back in a heartbeat.
Just wow! These guys sure know how to run a hostel! So friendly and helpfull, I can't imagine a better place in all of India. If visiting Bangalore, don't stay anywhere but here! We had an amazing time in Bangalore, so greatfull for all the kindness shown by the staff. HIGLY RECOMMENDED
Outstanding experience to get hosted! These two brothers are honestly welcoming and help in any manner they possibly can. The atmosphere is lovely and all guests are part of it. My compliment to this achievement!

I've traveled over 25 countries, stayed at severals hostels, and this is the first hostel / hosts that I can admit I will truly miss. Bangalore was my first stop in India and Mass Residency - along with their superb hosts Shakir and Syed - made it very pleasant. They were helpful before I arrived with sharing the ins and outs on taxis, they helped me get a SIM card upon arrival, they gave me a neighborhood tour, drew me out a detailed map of MG road, etc etc etc. Don't debate, book the room!
Very nice place to stay, friendly staff, feel like being at home. it was my first time to visit india, i was affraid but when i stay in this place, i felt secure and comfortable, more over i felt like i have a new family in india. Thank you shakir & aga.
