            Dorm arrangement was strange”

            Glass partition walls separating dorm rooms. No soundproofing as the partition walls didn't reach the ceiling. AC was nice. Dorm rooms in basement and so cellphone reception was bad. Not really much in terms of a common area. Location is excellent though, and the bathrooms were quite good.

            Cheap but very cheerful”

            The hostel is simple clean and relatively comfy. The family room we had was great. My only issue is there was only a sheet not duvet or blanket so if you have the ac on you freeze or you have the fan on and boil. We rectified by wearing plenty of clothes!! The staff member on the desk was really kind and helpful. Great location though as you are only a very short walk to the Golden Temple. As a small aside I was surprised they didn't have their own restaurant attached - you will need to make alternative plans for food. Overall very cheap and a good experience. Thank you.
