    Hostel is managing trips and common activities every day. I was not actually looking for atmosphere, so didn't join any.. But stuff friendly offered to join them what is for Mombai really great. They changed my room for cheaper with no problem because I booked wrong one by mistake.. Security is 100%.felt really safe in the area.. I can recommend for solo travellers as a groups..

    Nice and helpful staff and great location! Huge disappointment when I found bed bugs in my bed and my friend was covered in bites and struggled to sleep. At first we thought it was mosquito bites until we found evidence of love and dead bed bugs on the mattress. The staff also keep a cute dog in the lobby but it was sad to see that he’s tied up most of the day and not socialized properly. It’s clear he is just being used for protection but it’s really disheartening to see as an animal lover.

    The atmosphere at the hostel is nice and social thanks to the backpackers who are working there. Although the bathrooms weren’t very clean and the toilet seat and toilet paper was ALWAYS wet. By all means use the bum gun but clean up after yourself. The bunks were super noisy every time someone rolled over and you’re only given a tiny fleece blanket that smells like it doesn’t get washed often. Also got woken up at 11pm to 4 staff members in our room fiddling with the air con.
