    Extremly clean place, very kind owner. Didn't get the chance to meet any people here, they all seemed to be grouped up or working. Plenty of cute cats though to entertain you!

    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.

    Good: Kishur the manager is a great person. Good vibe as most guests are individuals staying medium-term for work in Chennai. Bad: No lockers available as advertised. Location and cleanliness passable.

    Hostel Gandhi was indeed very close to Little Mount metro station, but reaching the hostel from the main road could be a hassle since there are no signboards or indicators to identify the place. Dorms are clean, two double-decker beds in each room with ample space. Bathrooms are below-avg to average. Always call them before you reach especially if you are going to be late. Breakfast usually is not served unless requested. Best part: Staff are very polite and informal. Great for 1-2 nights stay

    So many things frustrated me about this stay. So I'll start with the pros: great location on the metro, decent vibe with good books and a full kitchen. hostel cats were cute, the cleaner who came in the morning was very sweet! Cons: reception was never at the desk and was hard to reach, kitchen was dirty af, they didn't have any towels for shower or enough empty lockers for all the people in the hostel, reception staff was generally aloof, rude at times. Dawn prayer at mosque very loud.

    It requires massive development. The caretaker is not up to the mark. It has weird rules that can change instantly. I guess Indians are not treated well in the hostel. Being Indian, you will be treated as a second-class citizen in your own country.
