Lovely place to visit and hotel is good in overall services


I and my family had visited Darjeeling for holiday purpose and stayed for three days at this hotel. The location was fine but far from railway station. The appearance of the hotel was quite good and interiors are pretty good in view. The staff members in the hotel were good in service and their behaviour was friendly and cooperative. The room allotted was spacious and maintained with all the required amenities functioning properly. The food given in the hotel was nice in taste and quality. There was cab facility provided by the hotel for sightseeing and truly speaking the overall experience at this hotel was awesome.

Will not recommend and needs a lot of improvements


Location is good, appearance and ambience are very good. Food wasn't very good, definitely needs improvement. There wasn't variety for vegetarians. No problems with check-in and check-out, but the cost was were very high. Service was not good, compared to the price. The rooms were clean and spacious, with a view of a garden and Kanchenjunga. Gym's available. Spacious parking area.

Good location but food was not upto mark


I stayed for two days in this hotel. Darjeeling place is fantastic for travel. Location was very nice. I reached the hotel easily. Inner and outer look of the hotel was fine. I booked my room through online. Booking and front office was up to the mark. Services were below average. Rooms were neat and clean. Food was not up to the mark. It was a relaxed holiday with my friends.

Perfect for a group visit


Me and my friends, a group of 5, visited Darjeeling during December. We were looking for a cheap accommodation which suited our group size. We couldn't have found anything better than this youth hostel considering the price was just 800-900 per night for the whole room. Its four bedded room was perfect for us with an extra bed. There was an uninterrupted hot water supply and TV transmission as well . . The only drawbacks were that the route from the main road to the hostel was quite steep. Also our room did not have a balcony like other rooms and the meals at the hostel were not that great. However, if you need a cheap, clean and comfortable accommodation especially only for the purpose of sleeping at night, go for this hostel.
