Score from 141 reviews Good
Good location, nice roof top area, cheap room
stay in the room next to restaurant area, good thing is got good WIFI connection, but very noise. and the inside toilet and shower is horrible very dirty , but you got what you pay for.....
The staff were fantastic, very friendly and helped us book our train tickets and told us how to get to the Taj Mahal. It's an excellent location for the Taj. The room was comfortable and secure. Excellent value if you're just visiting Agra for a couple of nights.
The bathroom had no light and toilet paper wasn't provided. Wifi only in public areas. Cold shower, but they usually are.
a normal hostel
a little far away from the Taj Mahal
The staff is just amazing! They helped us getting our money back when we had to cancel our flight tickets due to heavy flood in Srinagar. What's more they helped us many times during our travel as we stayed in touch. Great, great people. Don't hesitate - book your room as soon as possible!
Walkable distance to south entrance ticket stall to Taj Mahal
Food wildly overpriced (a recommended restaurant in a guidebook with views of the Taj was cheaper!), rooms were far too hot and fan just moved stale air around. Lots of bugs in my room. WiFi only connects in common area which doubles up as the restaurant and it is not uncommon for it to not work at all.
- You can go walking to Taj Majal, so it's perfect if you plan to go there at dawn. That's definitely the best thing about this place! - It's good for solo woman travelling. I contacted them before arriving because I was concerned about how to get there, and they suggested that I could call them from the rickshaw to make sure I would arrive to the right place. - Staff are nice and always willing to help, even though I sometimes felt they were trying to do some extra business out of me (you can't completely rely on them).
- It was the most expensive place I stayed in all my trip, and it was not the best at all. - Room dark and hot. - Only possible to use wifi in the common area, it didn't reach the room. - Don't trust the staff when they offer to arrange taxi, train or entrance to Taj Majal. I mean: they will do it for you, but very expensive! You'll be able to get everything by yourself easily than they tell you. Specially the ticket for TM, which you buy in a place very close to the hostel.
It is value for the money
It is not good enough.
Close to the east entrance of Taj Mahal (walking distance). Good value for money.
Be sceptical about what the owner is offering you (taxi, trains, entrance to TM) and bargain. The entrance to TM you can easily buy on the way, ticket office on the same street connecting the hostel.
I had an amazing time at this guest house and the staff was wonderful. They were extremely helpful and the food was great. I should mention that I stayed in two different rooms. The first night was fully booked so I ended up on the bottom floor in a small room that was comfortable. On the second and third nights they upgraded me to a beautiful room and it was fantastic. The free wifi was good too. It was definitely a great value and I would gladly recommend i
They booked my taj mahal tickets for sunrise . Normally taj mahal ticket counter is very busy , its take a long time to take taj mahal ticket . this hostel book for us taj tickets , Only good comments for this place. Every member of this little family business is amazing. My friend had to go to the hospital and they helped a lot! Walking distance from the Taj Mahal in a quiet area so you can sleep well. Very clean with hot shower. They have a little lounge with sofas and the mother of the family cooks excellent meals in her small kitchen. It felt good to relax there with a cold beer after a long day of walking around in the city. I definitely recommend this place! lovely food in bob marley restaurant at friends guest house
Nothing at all
It was filthy and old. Too hot. Dark rooms. Shower did not work. The food their was to expensive for the place.
The staff were very very helpful. The location was very near the Taj Mahal.
All of the beds were squeezed together and the bathroom was tiny but for the price we paid, it was understandable.
Very Safe for Solo Women this Hostel . I was felt like my house . I had great time with this family . Best Budget Backpackers Hostel in Agra .We just had a most pleasant stay here last weekend. We enjoyed a very clean room and bathroom . They prepared a nice continental breakfast and our host made us aloo parathas to take for lunch which were very delicious. The family is very nice and friendly and I would definitely recommend this place to others.The family were really lovely - helpful and chatty if you wanted them to be and left you alone if you didn't. The food was some of the tastiest we had in India and that is saying something! It was easy to walk to the Taj Mahal
15min walk from Taj A 15min à pied du Taj Mahal. Good value for money Le rapport qualité/prix In low season, calm atmosphere. Good place to stay.
Like in all (north) India, DONT TRUST anyone. if you don't want to feel ripped off you have to shop around etc. Yousef from this guesthouse acts very friendly and always warns you about all the other touts that might get you everywhere and that's kind but when we asked him for a quote to hire a driver for our trip to Rajasthan, his proposition was twice the price (600$!) we found on the internet and when we told him, he found a way to nearly cut the price by half. In the original price he included the overnight camel safari in Jaisalmer (with a friend I suppose) but I know it costs only around 1300. We now have a driver with an AC car and everything is ok, so I don't know, maybe his car was like a rolls royce or something? So, business or a rip off attempt ? ----the sheets were not very clean. Or maybe just old.
This is real good place for real backpackers . This guest house is running by lovely India family . They really nice people . WiFi was great working . Good Room cheap and best . Taj Mahal Is very close from here . I highly recommend this place to all Tourist .
Good value for money, very close to Taj Mahal. The family are friendly.
Being ripped off when buying train tickets...made over 40% commission off us. Charged extra for toilet roll. Pillow is rock hard.
The guest house (homestay, in fact) is in the vicinity of one of the entrances of Taj Mahal (walkable distance - 10 minutes maximum to the entrance from where an electric car will take you to the gate). The family members are nice and will try to make your stay comfortable. It is a home stay, not a guest house or a hotel, so you will be meeting the family members inevitably. The street itself where this house is took me by surprise - do not expect too much of it. You can see the very tip of Taj Mahal from the rooftop, but do not expect any great views! Good value for money (for one night) and clean rooms, but if it's too hot, the fan will not help very much and the room will be hot hot hot even at night. The manager Yusuf can help you organize your day, but you can arrange your own moto rikshaw for cheaper (for sightseeing in Agra). Communication with Yusuf beforehand was good and fast, no problem at all.
The quadruple room does not have an ensuite bathroom as written on the web, the bathroom is separate and open and anyone can use it, in fact. Wifi is poor or not working on the upper floor where the rooms are located, but is good at the balcony where food and beverages are served. Another floor is being built where currently poultry lives - you will hear them as well as anything that happens in the street during the night.
We stayed in the middle of May and we really like the guest house . Taj Mahal is walking distance from here . I visit Taj in the sunrise it's so beautiful . This guest house run by Joseph family .people was friendly and very helpful staff . They Have travel desk you can also booked your train or bus tickets from here . They Have nice common area (bob Marley Restaurant ) Food so tasty and fresh . Reasonable price of Rooms and food . I will recommend this place to my all friends and all budget travel .
I LIKE NOTHING .
WE BOOKED HOTEL TWO DAYS BEFORE THOUGH THE ROOM WAS NOT READY WHEN WE REACHED THERE DIRTY ROOM POOR ROOM SERVICE . THIRD CLASS HOTEL DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL
A lovely family guest house. Each of the family members is super nice! Stayed there for one night in a double room. Room was nice, with fan, private bathroom and hot water. The mother and daugter cook excellent! Bilal is a true comedian :)
I m traveling in India for a long time . I stayed many places in Asia . In Agra i found one of the best place near Taj Mahal ticket counter . In the hostel they have different Rooms according to price . All Rooms was fine . Wifi is very Good work . Food is very hygenic and Tasty . I fealt as a Home here . So far i found one of the best Home in Agra .
Careful with Rishkaw drivers . They always try to misguide you .
Bilou is the best host!
Proximity to TAj, its two or five mins walk to ticket office. Opposite direction, fifteen mins walk, a main road with plenty of shops and restaurants. very helpful staff. Ysuf, Manager drove me to the Red fort, complimentary, nice man.
the overpriced beer lol....(but hey your close to the Taj and its a tourist part of town, so what did I expect, It was nice and cold...:)
