Positive things: clean room, location, relatively friendly staff (however somewhat pushy). Negative things: in need of new bedlinen, staff was somewhat slow and could not give you a proper receipt. This place is hugely overpriced. Shop around for a cheaper place if you have the time. They also organised a boat trip for twice the normal fare (which is approx 100 rupia/hour), however the boatman spoke some English and were a little knowledgable.


Too expensive comparing with hostels around. I did not take back my money from my booking via internet. I decided to stay there just one night

Very goood location. The manager can help you with almost everything. Splendid service and good food.. But you must have airport pick up. It is just by the Ganges and hard to find by your own..

Great, clean place in fantastic location to ghats. Tandonjee (owner) very helpfully for all needs. Beautiful decor, but lacked atmosphere due to low season and minimal guests. Doors are locked at night, so if you require early exit (prior to 8am), you may need to arrange night before as no one is up to unlock
