    Cheap and good location. So if that's what your going for this is a good spot. However, beds very uncomfortable, the dorm contained some people that seemed to live there, who were loudly calling and talking late night and early morning. No lockers for luggage, open doors and windows so lots of musqueetos.

    Owner=nice; other staff=very rude and don't speak English. They get upset with you for asking to purchase hot water. No internet in bedrooms, common area only. Common area closes at 11 pm. If you want to read or use internet, the night staff will tell you to go to bed and read tomorrow. It's India: cold water buckets for showers, squat toilets, hard beds. The location is absolutely fantastic. No lockers, no trash bins for toilet tissue (they get mad if you flush it.) Felt kinda like a prison

    I would advise anyone looking here to reconsider! It’s really not a great place to stay HOWEVER it’s in a good location if you need to get to the nearby train station like I did. If you’re staying here keep it to a minimum - I stayed 1 night.
