    This place is an oasis in Chennai! It's located in a nice neighbourhood and the rooms and staff don't leave anything to be asked. They are welcoming and will even give you further discounts if you want to stay a bit longer. Hope to come here soon again!

    I love this plaawes3 I wanted to stay in a hostel and that is how i travel. I was "upgraded" to a single room, which honestly i did not want. Through hosteling is how i meet strangers who become friends. Sadly, disappointed in the upgrade, yes, ironic one would think. David & team were awesome, great hosts, gave good tips. I will definitely recommend this hostel. My only 3 recommendations are: Real soap in bathroom Put "AC switch" marker near the AC switch. Fix bathroom exposed wires

    Amazing staff who will assist with your needs, thank you for looking after us! They helped us book our transport and sorted everything out for us and even helped us with our itinerary. Not much atmosphere but that has alot to do with the city itself. Good hostel for a stop over for your next destination

    The beds are good. The Air condition is great. No breakfast though, which was a bummer and a little low on atmosphere. Did not quite feel the vibes of a good hostel.

    Staff so nice and helpful. David very nice to me when I was unwell. Let me stay on during the day, past checkout time, to rest. Helped me book cab. Arun smiley and helpful. Vishakh booked train ticket for me. Owner so friendly and up for chats about economics and world affairs! Dorm was quite spacious. Interior a bit dated but perfectly comfortable. Overall would recommend.

    Staff was nice and willing to help. Facilities were not great, rooftop terrace was dirty and did not look ready to use. Overall, it really lacked the hostel atmosphere. Stayed here for a few nights in July and didn't run into a single other guest.
