    I had a great time here. Arrived at the site on early morning, there was a little misunderstanding on the room I booked and the room assignment, but overall the owner of the backpacker site were able to soothed the issues. The place is suitable for travelers and backpackers in India. I met a lot of friendly travelers and staff. fantastic location cos its near to Chakala metro stations. Many restaurants nearby and market as well. The staff are very helpful and friendly in giving instructions.

The place is really clean, facilities are excellent and the staff amazing .Not only did they help me getting my card thing sorted when it got blocked also helped me with some money , havent seen this kind of hospitality before, Raj was so sweet , helped me with booking cabs, to ordering food , to helping me explore the city , to keeping my bags after checkout and letting me shower before i left . Amazing people and this is what makes this hostel stand out from the rest.

    The BVM Hostel was absolutely incredible! They ruined all other hostels for me now, I don't think I'll ever be able to find another hostel that great! The people that work there are kind and friendly and always there to help. We cooked great food at night with the others in the hostel & partied . The hostel is SUPER clean, the bathrooms are modern and the common area is the coziest place ever. Being at The Backpackers Villa does not give you the typical hostel vibe, more like a roommate vibe!

    Hands down one of the best hostelsin Mumbai ! Unreal dorms, never seen anything like it before. Its clean, free drinking water is provided along with coffee and tea facilities. The very best thing is the staff, all of them are amazing and make you feel right at home! They organize great activities and take everyone out at night! Its super social, met lots of great people, but having a quiet night in is also no problem since everyone goes out and its quiet after 10pm! Could stay forever!

    We had an amazing stay at the BVM hostel! The staff was really nice and helpful to us (special thanks to Raj, who helped us a lot and gave us wonderful tips about the city), and dare to say that our room was much better than other rooms available in Mumbai for the same price. Super friendly atmosphere, very clean and great restaurants around We strongly recommend it!

    This hostel is AMAZING! Everyone here is so nice, social, and welcoming. Every night there’s a group activity,went out for a pub crawl and got a great discount on food and drinks .Right next to the metro station and just about 10 minutes to the airport with lots of restaurants and pubs around . The community aspect of this hostel is what makes it amazing. I had no idea I would make friends in 3 days that I feel like I’ve known for years. Sad to go but will definitely be back!

    We enjoyed our stay. The host was very friendly and hospitable. Location is close to the International Airport. We stayed in a deluxe room with a bathroom and catered for all our needs. However, the noise from the common area did keep us up at times in the early hour morning. But overall, pleasant stay.

    This hostel wasn’t the worst, but it wasn’t the best either. The cleanliness was the biggest problem here. Beds, sheets, and pillows were not the cleanest. A couple of times the staff randomly came into the dorm to use the bathroom. Lockers are under the bed and most were partially or totally broken. There is an open balcony chill-out area with ping pong and darts that was decent but there were too many mosquitoes. This hostel had the most hot water out of any other place I stayed.

    Not a great communal feel at all. The balcony is there but its not sociable. The owner is a nice guy but the rest of his staff often slept on the reception and didn’t speak any English at all. If you’re flying into Mumbai and are unsure where is best to go this is not the place. Although it is close to the metro you want to stay in the south of Mumbai near the gateway. Bathroom was also in a bad way with the shower head held up by a rubber band. Any advertising of a bar is also false.
