    The view from the place is incredible. The staff were super helpful. A working air conditioner in the humid weather turned out to be a boon. Taxi service was also very useful. Has a cafe as well. Would definitely recommend this place

    Very Good

    View of the ganga river from hostel is amazing. Service of the cafe of the hostel is very slow. Also food is not at all good. They charge too much. Even if you order soup it will take 1.5 hrs to serve it. Washrooms are not clean. If you are living in dorm style room, roommates has to be co-operative. In our case, we were 3 girls living in 4 style bed mixed dorm room. 4th person was male & he was so untidy. He used to bring his other friends in our room & they used to use our washroom, bed.

    Many things went wrong during our stay and the staff were unfortunately unorganised to promptly help fix the issues, however when we push came to shove, they ended up helping - albeit reluctantly. The location is great - up amongst it - which is good. Overall, while the staff tried to address the faults the place was still a shabby mess.

    My room had bedbugs. Also, I had to ask people in the courtyard to stop making noise, twice. One of those times was at 2AM. The bathroom was filthy. Really not the experience I wanted after 24 hrs. of travel.
