    Hostel is nice, clean, close to the airport, next to shops, washing machine available for a very reasonable price. Most importantly : the owner Francis is so kind. He will really do anything to help you in the best way he can. I had to catch a plane at 3am. He walked me to the Uber he had booked for me to make sure it was there and that I was safe. I absolutely recommend this hostel!!!! Thank you again.

    This place has my heart :) Found a home in a strange city, very close to Little Mount metro station. Created events, attended events, had great conversations and biryani and chukka kaapi and was introduced to cats(!) and a great host. Was lovely to witness how the hostel is becoming more colourful and green by the day. It's a lovely space, with barbeque nights, sharing circles, art circles and space for more! 10/10 visiting again

    Hostel Gandhi was value for money. I had a good time at the hostel, chatted up with a Canadian and an Italian fellow who were travelling to India and staying at Hostel Gandhi. Place was clean, and all basic facilities were available.

    Very welcoming people and very attentive. They have everything you need and there are a few shops and restaurants very close by. Breakfast was OK and quantity was not limited. 5AM megaphone prayers at the nearby mosque could be listened loudly in the room.
