    I only stayed here one night in between flights in an 8 bed dorm and made lots of friends! The showers in particular are superb.

    Had such a rad stay! Special thanks to Reena for taking us out so we can experience the city in its proper Bombay style. Definitely ask her to take you out for the day or evening! Although she will probably offer. And also thanks to Romana for being extra lovely working at the desk. The hostel is right near a metro station and very close to lots of street food and restaurants just around the corner. Dorms are locked and you get a locker under the bed. Full kitchen and filtered water. Great stay

    Good property. Located at a stone's throw away from a metro station (Chakala), hence well connected. Everything was good except the fact that they had cancelled my booking for the 1st day, even though I booked it a week before. It's very near to the market. The place is clean & the beds were really comfortable. No issues with the security. The receptionist (Reena) was sweet, friendly and polite. She gave me an idea about the tourist spots that I could visit.

    Good location if you don’t want to stay in Coloba and for the airport, and next to the metro. Takes 20 mins from the airport and an hour to Coloba. Staff recommended some really nice restaurants - Punjabi’s was amazing. Lots of construction works currently going on though.

    I had a great time at the backpackers! Unfortunately the rooms smelled a little weird and there wasn’t any possibility of getting fresh air inside. The kitchen wasn’t well equipped, but you can find a lot of restaurants in the area. Metro station right next to the hostel! Staff was very helpful and friendly! Common area is really nice and you’d always find some cool people to hang around with. Would definitely recommend that place. Mumbai is a Great City!

    I was just not feeling safe in this hostel. The way the hostel is presented it is actually not like that in sense of looking. It is way different.

    The first night the receptionist came in to my room and woke me up, before 8 am, with the question: Have you paid yet? It wasn't a good morning or anything like that, he just wanted money so bad he had to wake me up while I was still sleeping. Further more it was really dusty around my bed and if on putted something on the shelf and then on the bed a lot of dust came in to the bed, resulting in my bed looked as a Dalmatian after a while.
