there is nothing bad.
I like the bedroom so meny flower in room.And the good view at dal lagoon. The owner Young Bombye very friendly.
Staying at Young Bombay was indeed a memorable experience. The location was excellent (though slightly overcrowded), at the very heart of Dal Lake. The facilities are adequate, the atmosphere homely, and the ambiance relaxing. The best part, however, was the friendly and helpful staff of the boat, including the owner Mr. Noor Mohammed and Sameer. They were extremely courteous, great with suggestions regarding local sightseeing, and above all, provided excellent home-cooked meals at no extra cost. On the whole, the entire experience of staying at Young Bombay was excellent, and I am sure to pay a second visit. Highly recommended.
I like Mr.Noor, a very humble and carying person, he took care of all of us by providing whatever he can with the resources he had...the best kawa I had there...i recommend just bcos of Mr.Noor as he is a very carying person and honest.
Not much aminities jus a simple House boat with limited facilities
Welcoming and pleasant Staff who are available all the time for our needs, Free unlimited pickup and drop off to the pier, free pick up from airport, owner and his son always looking after us to make sure everything is OK.
Nothing to mention.
A family atmosphere. Home cooked food as per your choice.
Not value for money
The fantastic hospitality provided by Noor and Sharma, the free pick up service from the airport, the lovely clean rooms, the location on a quiet section on the lake, the helpful shopping and touring advice given by the team, the lovely meals, the attentive service of the houseboy, the fantastic cooking demonstration (thanks Sharma). Would come again.
Nothing. Our stay was perfect.
The house boat owner is a wonderful family and made our stay home away from home.excellent rooms.good food.and wonderful other facilities.
Everything was upto expectations.
I stayed on the Young Bombay group of houseboats for four nights in early August, 2014. I had originally intended to stay for two but extended my visit because I found the peace to be a welcomed contrast to the other places I'd visited in India. To save some money, after my initial two nights, I moved from my original deluxe room into a room on an adjoining boat. While not as salubrious as my original room, it was still adequately furnished with a large double bed and en suite bathroom. The reduced levels if decor were also reflected in the price. Shikaras, the local water taxis, to and from the shore were included in the price, as was the pick-up from the airport. On the two occasions no shikaras were available, Mohmmad either took me himself or paid a private boat owner to transport me. Food, while not overly fancy, was tasty and generously portioned. This was also the case with drinks, including the divine Kashmiri tea, that I was given on arrival. While one may receive similar levels if hospitality and accommodation on other boats, I believe what sets this one apart is the level of service and the staff. Mohmmad was always available for a chat, and this was greatly appreciated as I was alone during this stage of my travels. The decades he has spent accomodating people from all over the world have provided him with a wealth of interesting stories. While I cannot comment on the standard of accommodation and service provided by other boat owners, I can definitely recommend this one. I have also found that much of the negative criticism levelled against any houseboat, not necessarily these ones, largely stems from the guests' misconceptions about what will be provided. Although many of the boats are themselves intricately carved works of art, they are not five star hotels and so cannot deliver that level of luxury.
HIGHLY ENJOYED WITH NOOR BHAI & HIS FAMILY ON YOUNG BOMBAY HOUSEBOAT ...will surely recommend to everyone ...
Quieter place than other houseboats, the family greeted us very nicely and took good care of us! Location is ideal and the food was good! We did not know, but they can arrange very good treks at competitive prices!
If you want to visit the town, it's less flexible since you always have to go back by Shikkara to the ghat.
Attentive, informative and friendly welcome from owner Mohammed. Lovely tasty meal provided by owner's wife who was a great cook, fish and chips by the lake with other travellers was enjoyable. Peaceful location on inside of lake with free boat taxi from shore to the boathouse. Clean room with fan and attached bathroom.
bit more pricey than some hotels we have booked in india, but it is worth it for the relaxed atmosphere, and great standard of service.
I adored Houseboat Young Bombay. The owner Mohammed is incredibly friendly and super helpful. We have a particular interest in the history of Islam, so Mohammed talked to us every night about the history of the region and even took us on a tour of all the mosques in town. The boat is located in a quiet little alcove, with a beaituful view of Dal Lake and the mountains. The shikara ride to the shore is short and easy to make quick trips to town if you need. It is also easy to just sit on the porch of the houseboat and relax all day. Wifi worked as well as can be expected and hot water was always available. Sheets were clean and fresh. Oh! And Mohammed's wife Shama is an amazing cook, and she makes light Kashmiri food that is a relief from th heavy Indian sauces. This place is a must-visit.
Very good price vs accomodation. For Srinagar one adres : hb young Bombay. Also good trips with good guide and driver. Tips for visiting the city.
booked it for my parents and these guys r just too good. very helpful, friendly and caring. one of the best places around to stay.
o beleive me i cant pin point a single thing wrong
The staff is friendly.
Unfortunately it is very noisy at night and hard for us to take a good sleep after exhausted journey.
Very Neat and Clean Houseboat. Mr. Noor Mohammad and his staff are very helpful and always had a smile on their face. The houseboat was very peaceful and clean and the ambiance was very well done up you feel at home when you are here the rooms are big and very clean and well lit. Enjoyed our stay there for 2 days and Mr. Noor Mohammad also guided us to a few site seeing places and also about the local rates. We had not tried the Kashmiri Kawa to which Mr. Noor Mohammad's family made it for our entire family and did not charge us for it. Mr. Noor Mohammad has a wonderful family who are ready to help you at anytime of the day. Overall a wonderful experience and will definitely recommend this houseboat to all.
The owner is so welcoming and he takes care of all our needs.. We did not face any kind of discomfort there..we really enjoyed our stay in young bombay..
Very personable, free airport pick-up, lots of great info from owner Noor, loved the backwater trip (paid separately- did it twice as it was so relaxing). no rip-offs or forced sales, they just want to ensure you're happy.
Only minor downside was that the boat is quite close to others- and the walls are thin. I was woken up by people on the neighbouring boat.
It is important to remember that this is a houseboat and not a hotel. It therefore has the characteristics of a boat - occasionally creaky floors, the odd problem with powercuts and hot water supply - this is not a significant problem and adds to the charm of the accommodation. The bedrooms are of a good size with fully equipped en-suite bathrooms. There is a communal dining area and a terrace where I spent most of my time on the boat either eating sumptuous, home cooked meals or drinking endless kahwa whilst reading my book. Noor (the owner) and his family were most hospitable and couldn't do enough to help. They organised trips which were tailored to my needs given my travel restrictions, cooked beautiful and varied dishes - either Kashmiri or not - engaged in interesting chats and steered me towards reputable handicrafts dealers. All in all, I had an extremely relaxed holiday where I soaked up the atmosphere and time slowed down. Thank you for a memorable experience.
it is a new experience being on boat. if you love adventure, then enjoy it
Everything was perfect during my stay at Young Bombay. The owner is very nice and knows how to take care of his guests from their arrival at the airport to the moment they leave. His family has been running the business for 80 years and he knows pretty well the need of the 'Western' tourists (ie. cleanliness, working wifi, hot water, etc.). His knowledge of the region is pretty amazing and the optional food is simple but very tasty.
