    My partner and I really enjoyed this hostel! The atmosphere was great - not a party hostel by any means but definitely met some cool people. And the staff were super fun as well - it was cool to bar hop and go to karaoke one night. Liked that they had a kitchen that we could cook in as well - gets hot but there’s a fan so it’s not a problem. A little pricey for not having a private bathroom, but didn’t have too much of a problem with that either. Overall would definitely recommend!

    Basti has a lovely atmosphere, it’s very chilled for a city hostel. It’s very clean as well, one of the cleanest we have stayed in! Location is a difficult one, it’s in a nice street with plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. We found it great as we were tired of being in the busy thick of it in other northern cities. However, it will take you about an hour by train or taxi to get down into the south of Mumbai where basically everything is. This makes it expensive and tiring.

    Un peu loin du centre ville, mais la distance se parcours facilement en métro/train et ne coûte à peu près rien (40 R pour la journée). Très propre, les employés sont constamment en train de faire le ménage. Et ils sont également très accueillant.

    A nice little hostel that has a communal kitchen which was great and the beds have no ends which is great for tall people (I am well over 6ft tall). However the air con in the dorm we stayed in was very old and ridiculously loud! I have no idea how anyone can sleep with the level of noise that it creates. It sounds like a plane taking off! Especially of you are in the bed next to the unit.

    Strange place, not an amazing atmosphere. They have an wonderru rooftop and have put no effort to make it a place for people to hang out, in fact you arent even allowed to bring mugs up there. Pretty sure the place had bedbugs, as they took me out of my room saying they had to clean it, I asked if it was bedbugs and they said no. Then me and another guest complained the next morning of being bitten, and when asked again they said that they were in fact cleaning for bedbugs. Totally unacceptable.
