Property Description

Only about 300 mts. from one of the 7 wonders of the world,, The Hosteller Agra is perfect for your impromptu weekend plans. Situated on the beautiful paved road that leads to the Taj Mahal, it offers everything a traveller wishes for. Spacious rooms, great common areas to chill out, A+ hospitality and the buzz of a backpacker hostel. Whether it's a quick 2 day getaway or a longer staycation, we're always in to host you.

Uncover a cool new hangout spot in our basement common area. With everything from a foosball table to a carrom board, the space is always humming with activity. We are super filmy and love to flaunt it too. The large projector beside the game area is a perfect friend for a Bollywood movie marathon. Grab the best seats in the house and relax back with the fluffiest pillows as the lights dim and your favourite masala movie begins.

A special secret awaits at our hostel. Wanna know what? Head over to the huge open terrace and soak in the mesmerising landscape. As you take it all in, right there in front of you, stands the most majestic structure of all - the Taj Mahal. An ethereal view like no other, we bet you wont be able to take your eyes away from it. Spend your evenings watching the glorious sunset as you sip on a cuppa joe. Let the cool breeze refresh you. With not one but TWO terrace areas, there's no shortage of chilly winds and lovely views here. Wait no longer and get ready to fall in love.

Mohan is indeed incredible and will go above and beyond for you!Legend!But several issues made this place unpleasant. 1)Of 10 toilet visits during my stay there was toilet paper avlbl twice(!). 2) The empty soap dispenser never got replaced during my entire stay. 3) There was an awful smell and odor everywhere, like a combination of pee and chemicals. 4) Zero vibe, I didn't meet a single person until checkout. 5) incredible inconsiderate local guests entering the room every night screamingaround

This is a nice a nice hostel if one wants to quickly sum it up. Not crazy be India but no hostel in this city was. You also have to pay extra for lock, towel, and the washing of clothes was maybe a wee bit expensive. Other than that the restaurant and hangout place upstairs was very good, cool staff (one of the staff members invited us to his sisters wedding, which become a legendary night), felt secure, clean enough, and nice aircon.
