This was one of my best stays in India. The owner was really increibly helpful, with lots of personal advice, the food that his wife cooked was amaazing and the atmosphere was really good!
Traveling in India can be very hectic but this place is an oasis of calm. Very friendly reception, nice residential area to walk around (no one hassling you to come into their shop) with shops and banks nearby. Easy to get to the sites. One thing that has to be said about Sai Homestay though is the food is AMAZING - possibly the best in India. All home cooked... we booked an extra night just for the dinner. Also be aware that the electricity cuts out all the time throughout Agra, not just here.
It's a little expensive for India, but it is probably the cleanest place I stayed while in India. The staff was also incredibly friendly and helpful. It's not that close from the Taj, it's a good 30 min walk, but taking a tuk-tuk is cheap. I would definitely recommend this place!
it was good: clean bedroom and toilet; our bedroom was very big!!! there's wifi at the lovely courtyard. it's cheap to eat there, but I didn't choose the right plate: noodles aren't very good... but the sauce which my friend took... mmm! delicious! it was the speciality that the woman recommended to us. the location I'm not sure if it was near Tah Majal because we got the hostel after our visite to Tah Majal, and I was tired, we went by taxi and I don't know if it was far or it was ok...
I was here in June 2013 Sympatic and helpful owner. I felt at home and had a wonderful fantastic Indian homemade meal there, much better than those Indian meals you usually get in Indian restaurants in my home country in Germany. And, of course, no problems with the stomack afterwards.
