    All the things were very good. Like the common area, cafe, staff was wonderful. Only thing was i lived in dorm of 6 the room was very small. Vibes were not good. I think if you will opt of separate room it is good.

    Good location away from the main street and walking distance down to Laxshman Jhula Bridge. Deluxe room had a balcony which I really enjoyed using. Great view from the rooftop and the cafe on the top floor was excellent for breakfast and dinner - loved the egg biryani and sweet lassi's and the prices were good.

    Clean and modern hostel, located 15min walk from Lakshman Jhula Bridge. Staff was very helpful in sorting out onward travel. There is a nice yoga place right around the corner that does walk-in sessions.

    There were no activities at this place. Also the window lock of the room was broken which they did not fix even after complaining. Water clogging problem in the washroom was an additional issue.

    The staff were extremely ill mannered .Regret the stay . Security was extremely poor. Not safe for girls who are planning a all girls trip because they are extremely biased with their judgement. Had an extremely poor experience . Never recommending anyone .
