    Was good staying here. As a single traveler, I felt welcomed by the staff and other guests. Safe and comfortable place to stay. Hostel-mates made it even better... dinner was delicious, cheap and good breakfast option. The staff made it easy to go out in a foreign city where you don't know anyone. It's a two min walk from the shops and a short ride to city center. Didn't do much in the area of the hostel as i had to spend my time outside and at the pub. Loved the party at hopscotch at night! :-)

    This is what backpackers are all about.Charming and well appointed without being overbearing. Great stay despite the bad weather we had. Nitin was nice, good communication and local tips. Rooms were intimate, bright and simple with an overall happy vibe. Was lovely to sit on the sofas outside the room eating nibbles while watching TV. Was worried about my drink but then hopscotch helped me out. Was wonderful having my favourite mock tails at the bar. Also loved the events in the pub at night.

    It doesn't have a hostel feeling as it is part of a hotel and the hotel is the front face,as compared to other hostels across, but otherwise it's a good place for backpackers. The location is pretty good. The beds are clean and good value for money.

    The location is not much reachable from Coonoor bus stand/town. Apart from that, no one knows about "Backpackers Burrow", but "Hotel Vivek".

    The way the stay being setup was really good. Just that the bed sheets and blankets where really dusty which screwed up our sleep. Hot water was not available at the washroom and hence we where asked to use the a bathroom in a different room. The property is really worth the money but the housekeeping could’ve been much better.

    It's a hostel, not a hotel. Also you have to go another room for taking shower. Could be worth if the price was 150-200Rs.

    This is not a hostel, it is a side wing of hotel converted into dorms. It's literally just 2 dorm rooms and the hallway as a common area. There is no host/staff to help you out. No drinking water supply. No kitchen or fridge to cook/store your food. The only option is to go to the two super expensive restaurants in the hotel. The washroom all smell all the time and there is no water heater. In all, I was living in constant fear as there is no one to keep watch & random people kept coming in
