No Doubt, you will be surprised to see all the movie connections (Yuva) to this hotel, walking distance from the howrah station, but certainly will not attract you with its cleaniness. budget hotel & surely could have been better.

I stayed one night for the proximity with the Howrah station as I had to take a train in the morning, The staff is rude, the rooms smells terrible, dirty and uncomfortable. I almost get divorce for taking my wife to such terrible place.

We stayed there for 2 Nights . it was good budget hotel. Room was average . this hotel is very old in architecture . this hotel is very close to Howrah Railway station. The person at reception guided us the tourist spot in kolkata. this hotel is not for those who is seeking luxury hotel.
