I arrived late due to do flight delays, which is one reason why I requested their 24 hour service. When I arrived, I could tell it was a bad area - it wasn't until morning I realized it was a slum. Even the locals called it a slum. All the lights were out inside as I could see through the clear glass window. The front door was locked - by locked I mean it was tied shut with a rope around both handles from the inside. I am going to leave my items here and consider them safe while I am out sight seeing?? I knocked until someone woke up from behind the counter to come greet me. Their staff sleeps in the lobby which I believe was the main source of loud phone calls all night.
After arriving in my room, it was pretty dirty, but I was exhausted. I ended up sleeping in my clothes and wrapping a tee shirt around their stained pillows as added protection. I slept on my U-shape flight pillow.
I could hear constant banging and clanging of who knows what outside in the hall ways, phone rings from somewhere in the hall, and a window connected my room to another where I thought someone may have been dying from all the coughing and extremely loud hacking. The leaking faucet for the shower bucket and sink created non stop dripping noises all night.
To top it all off - I spent $22 a night here for two nights totaling $44 not including taxes. This is about 1200-1300 Rupee. I quickly changed hotels and am enjoying a wonderful hotel for the same price that is above standards for many inexpensive western hotels such as holiday inn.
As a solo backpacker, I wouldn't spend more than 400 RS or $7 us on this place. I have stayed in many...less than stellar locations to keep on a backpackers budget, but for this location to cost $44 US...absolutely the wrong call..
AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS! IF YOU ARE WITH FAMILY, AVOID THIS FOR SAFTY!
