    I had a wonderful stay at Indian Culture club! The staff are wonderful; friendly and helpful, and quick to help you. The breakfast is on the lighter side, but they deliver it to you when you wake up, and you can ask for some chai to go with it- all in all it’s enough to start the day. They had some free yoga lessons that you could join in which was also quite nice. The location is excellent- once you find it, it’s close to lots of cafes and restaurants, and the river. I’d definitely stay again!

    We booked a private room for 3 days. We needed some privacy because I was sick. The room was clean and the bed was amazing. The staff was super kind. Only downside was no hot shower. Staff said our room was done incorrectly but not sure. Only had hot water out of a faucet. Ended up switching hostels because of this.

    Great location and very clean and tidy room. There is so much potential for this hostel but I don’t think they are taking advantage of the amazing space they have. The ‘common area’ could be a bit more comfortable, with pillows and mattresses for people to hang out there a bit more. The free yoga classes are a great addition :) More activities to bring a bit of character to the place would also be cool. All in all, a very good place to stay - especially due to the cleaningness and location.

    Newly open hostel. Good location for getting around but also very loud in a busy area. No apparent security so anyone could walk in if they wanted. Only cold showers. Wifi and power were unreliable. Beds were comfy and rooms were clean. Good free breakfast and yoga classes.

    This hostel has a big potencial due to location and structure, however it's dirty and there wasn't hot water in the shower. We wouldn't stay there again.

    Indian culture hostel is apptly named so. Expect hyper sexual aggression from male staff (all staff is male BTW) towards single females. Expect the resident puppy to pee and shit in your room, chew your possessions, and staff not to care. You'll need to clean up after puppy too. Expect bedding not to be changed between guests. Expect power drop outs, no hot water, no wifi for days. Expect staff to be rude towards females that don't give into them. Expect theft from staff. Indian culture..
