The room is basic but has everything you need. Even a hot shower which was amazing ! The staff were very friendly and helpful, and made great food. The view of the Taj Mahal from the roof terrace was amazing and it's literally 2 minutes walk to the gate .
Disgusting place. Did not change bedding from previous tenant. Room reeked of urine. Dogs yelping outside all night, could not sleep at all.
Can't complain since it's only a 2 minute walk from the Taj. It didn't quite feel clean though some how and our wall had a hole as though someone had bashed it so was crumbling onto the bed which wasn't very pleasant. Again, great to stay in for a quick visit to the Taj and I think it's standardised comparison with many places in Agra.
It was cheap, but a complete dump. Barking dogs all night kept everybody up (a party of four), and when they finally stopped, some mosque started chanting in its loudspeakers so loudly that at 03:00am we couldn't hear each other speak inside our room. The walls had holes in them (through the ventilation fan and around it), so the place was full of mosquitos. It was incredibly dirty, bed covers smelled bad, bathroom was clean but very old. To be fair, the view was nice.
I spent two nights in this hostel. The location was awesome. Also it was not very difficult to find the hostel. Both the south and East gate of the Taj were of 2-3 minutes walk. Moreover the rooftop restaurant was awesome, although the prices of food were higher. The hostel people should give serious attention to the cleanliness of the toilets and bed-covers. The people were friendly and helpful. But sometimes I felt that they were unnecessarily over-curious as they were not supposed to be!!!
Great location to explore the Taj Mahal and you can see it from the roof top balcony. Standard accommodation but it has the essentials.
Not much to be said about this place, it's absolutely bottom of the line. They do not even change and wash the bedding between guests. We left early in the morning to see the Taj Mahal, and when we came back they assumed we had checked out and "cleaned up" the room. But we really needed some rest after waking up so early and still had an hour or two until checkout so we went back in. They just made the bed with the same linens. I feel like at that point is it even actually a hotel?
Nice hotel, very close to Taj Mahal, with a great rooftop view.
2 minute walk to the Taj entrance. An excellent place to stay. No hesitation in recommending for the budget traveller.
The location and the place was good. However the toilets and the room can be improved and kept a little cleaner. I like the receptionist , he was very helpful and the hostel environment was good to hang out.
Staff were fantastic!!!!!! Excellent location!!!! AMAZING rooftop terrace with good priced restaurant. We arrived for a non air conditioned room and the manager Offered for us to stay in an air con room. Yes we paid a little extra but the staff really did only have our best interests at heart. Absolutely outstanding hostel!!! One negative - Internet was a little at times.

excellent services with free local tour provided... best experience in delhi by far
This hostel is in an absolutely fantastic location with beautiful views over the Taj Mahal from the rooftop. It's perfect for sitting and having a breakfast coffee and watching the sun come up over the Taj. A five minute from the all the gates (go to the East gate as it's less touristy). The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was clean and nice. Our bags were locked up after checking out and were kept securely for us. Would definitely stay here again!
Location is good for taj mahal. Room is very hot and the air con was incredibly noisy, along with the streets outside. The beds and pillows were very uncomfortable and it was difficult to sleep.
Great location right near the south gate entrance to the Taj Mahal, good security and a nice roof top restaurant which is decent with an alright view of the taj. However, it's definitely more of a hotel than a hostel and not much atmosphere if you wanna meet people and it's not the cleanest in the world - still it was absolutely fine for what it was and I had a good stay there.
Dirty Rooms and bathrooms. Nice Rooftop with view on taj mahal. For one night ok. But thats it
We had the "honeymoon suite" on the top floor with the round bed. All was good except the shower did not work, but the staff gave us another room to shower in. The rooftop terrace had a great view of the Taj. Nice place.
Nice place and a 2 minute walk to the Taj Mahal. The view from the restaurant was nice too, as was our meal. Friendly staff and good value.
Actually I could not stay at this hostel because my train was delayed so much.
No hot water. No heater (it was very, very coLD! !)
