Good stay, close to the Taj Mahal east gate entry with views from their rooftop. Room was clean only downside was our room didn't have a hot shower and the communal shower upstairs was poor, barely a dribble of h

Great Staff . Walking Distance to Taj , Good Food.

Good location, and is fairly easy to find, just tell the tuktuk to head for shilpgram. The hostel is run by a very accommodating family , and mommy cooks good food and chow mien and it is priced just right and in generous servings. They have a good guest lounge and internet is ok. It was mosquito season the time I visited Agra, so I had to struggle with that. bring some anti insect repellant.

Service, location and food

While the food was a little on the pricier range for India, it's great home cooked fare that agreed with my stomach. Run by a close knit family, they were very helpful in getting us information on the city and helping us get tuk tuks.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Room we had was nothing special but the mutual sitting area is very nice and the family members are always there to serve you in a nice and correct way. Good place to meet fellow backpackers.

the room i stayed made me feel terrible and homesick...anyway, considering the price i payed and the location, it's fair.
Alexander S. Couples Germany, March 20, 2012

After we read the comments about the hotel we booked. We did not expected much for the price and had a look for sth that was rated clean, but its has been definitely not clean!!!! the linen was old and used, the light in the bathroom was broken n after we came back from the taj all our stuff was cover with withe painting from the walls...

Good Guest House for the price

not so far from the Taj Mahal
5.7
I stayed here for 3 nights, the family is sympatic and the room was ok (the first room proposed to me was not but it was easy to get another one). The shared bathroom was not so clean... cleaness is a point to work on I suggest. Wifi connexion was good but not very stable (it was cut quite often)...

Welcoming family, great atmosphere but basic rooms

Communal area where all the guests could hang out and swap stories
7.3
We really enjoyed our time at Friends Paying Guest House; the family were very welcoming even though we arrived quite late at night and they were already asleep; the general atmosphere of the hotel was great with a nice communal area for the guests to hang out in. The hotel is located on quite a quiet street away from the main backpacker area but that meant you could avoid quite a lot of the hassling that Agra is known for and it's only 15 mins walk to the Taj Mahal. We were unlucky with our room which was adjoining the communal area with only windows separating it so it was impossible to sleep until everyone else had gone to bed and you were woken up with the first person having breakfast before trying to go to the Taj before the day trippers arrived! The room was clean but the main disadvantage was there was no hot water which was a real shame given that it was particularly cold when we were there. We were told it was broken and it would be fixed that evening but we stayed additional nights and it never was fixed whilst we were there. The food was good and given that there were very few other restaurants in the area we ended up eating there every night. We heard bad things about staying in Agra before we arrived but we didn't experience any issues staying at Friends paying GH and would recommend this as a good place to stay whilst visiting.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: If you go to the East gate of the Taj Mahal and turn right before going in the gate you can follow the path down to the river where there is a lovely (free) view of the Taj Mahal. We were recommended this by the owner of Friends GH so you can ask him if you're unsure where to go. Also - if you fancy a retreat from Agra, the Taj Mahal nature walk is a quiet place to relax with stunning views of the Taj (very little wildlife though).
