We had not much expections, already chose a lot cheap hostels in Nepal and Delhi during our trip, but this hostel was really disgusting. They charge extra for toilet paper, rooms are moldy, no hot water, wifi bad. After a rain our room was nearly flooded through the door to outside. After a few hours we came back to our... More

This place doesn't even deserve one star. Absolutely filthy, the hotel is plain gross. There is mess everywhere. Don't believe me? See for yourselves if you were as stupid as me to book a room here without reading the reviews. After a 10 hour train ride I jumped into the shower only to come out and see it had flooded... More

I stayed at this place for a night to a reasonable price. WiFi is working fine but the level of cleanliness leaves much to wish for. A trash bin was thrown out on one of the floors. "Probably a monkey" the staff told me. There are stains on the walls and the building is clearly in need of renovation. Showers... More

We picked this place because they had rooms for 400 rupees. We arrived no reservation or anything just knew the area we wanted to stay by. We obviously failed at throughly checking the room. We were pretty tired arriving from Jaipur. Anyways after we payed the guy we realized how dirty the place is. Nothing in the room seemed clean...... More

Really cool view from the roof to Taj Mahal which is near to the hotel. Another great service that I could take my bags in... More

We were there in the middle of October 2015, its a basic hotel with Tajmahal clearly visible from roof of the hotel. Rooms are not at all maintained properly but staffs were very much helpful. Basic hotel at budget, not suitable for the family.
