    My first time in Chennai and I had an absolute blast, Kalai isthe first and best host I've ever had for a hostel stay and I'm sure it will stay that way for a while. Very knowledgeable and friendly, and are willing to help you out in any questions you may have. The place is located right in the middle of the city with the vibrant atmosphere and easy access to the rest of chennai through the awesome public transport system. Would not hesitate to book again!

    This hostel is in a good location, many supermarkets/ gyms/ bus stations around. Thought it was abit expensive for a hostel, the free breakfast was very average, just bland rice every morning but there is a well equipped kitchen if you want to cook your own food. They DO charge to keep luggage there if you have a late flight from airport which is abit unfair considering you already pay a lot for the hostel anyway

    The hostel is in a good location, close to temples and relatively close to the beach. It was reasonably clean, and the bed (with curtain) was comfy. There was some socialising but not that much while I was there. It's good value for money.

    Not many options in Chennai so it was fine. Comfy communal areas but without windows in the dorms or communal area, it can feel a bit grim. AC was dirty and made us sick. Staff through were really helpful and friendly and went out of their way to help.

    Rooms were ok - there was a weird smell - and there wasn't much in the way of facilities (kitchen wasn't well stocked). Breakfast was a let down and when we left the staff were incredibly rude - they literally called us idiots - to our faces - when we were leaving; we didn't have time to sign out as we were rushing to the airport. Overall, it's an ok hostel. Not the best, but it will do.
