    Superb

    I stayed in the 10 bed dorm. The room itself was huge and could easily have accommodated 6 more people. But I am glad they didn't cramp it up like most other places do. I also liked how they have a small changing room kind of thing in the dorm room and very big lockers. The view from the room is just amazing. No basic facility is looked over, 24 hr hot water. The paintings on the walls were pretty good. I would definitely stay here again.

    Great property to stay at location wise. Staff is little weird. They said they won't provide us cutlery, and cutlery will be given only if food is ordered from the kitchen. We had to order from swiggy because their kitchen was closed and had to eat with our hands because they won't provide cutlery.

    Good clean place. The dorm rooms are very spacious with lockers (with lock/key). Wifi was weirdly switched off; maybe bcoz there were only 3 ppl in total. But staff very friendly, will help if asked. Restaurant food in hotel (hostel is just a ward of the hotel) is ok; better options a 10 mins walk away.

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

    This accom has a hallway with showers(i.e tubs of water)& toilets. I was locked inside a hallway due to the door locking upon being closed. Since I was going to shower, I didnt bring my phone or keys. I spent 2 hrs trying to barge open the doors to dorm+hallway & only could escape via screaming at people out the window in order to get reception, which took another 45 mins as they had no backup key. Management did nothing to compensate. Other cons: -smoke smelling room -no shower -no toilet paper

    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
