Friendly​ place in Agra”

We stayed longer than expected in Agra due to illness, but we enjoyed our stay there very much. The Bob Marley restaurant in the first floor is a little gem, where we mostly ate. Yousef and the staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms we stayed at the second floor had shared bathroom which was kept clean twice a day as well as the common areas. There are several common areas and a roof top, though it gets very hot there in the afternoon. There are several board games available, that the kids loved to play. While we were there, they installed air conditioners in the rooms which made the stay much more comfortable. Without it these rooms tend to get very hot, and when the inside windows are open there is a flood of mosquitos inside the room. This problem exists in all common areas as well, and the staff is trying to take care of it without much​ success. So we recommend paying the extra and get the AC working in the room.

Great hostel, great vibe”

We stayed here just one night in a private room which was very clean and had a great bathroom. The staff was incredibly helpful and let us hang out all day even after we had checked out. It's a very social space and great for meeting other travelers. Walking distance from the Taj. The restaurant also has some really excellent food. Highly recommend, especially for solo travelers!

Panda is very good, as always!”

Backpacker Panda is always good, as always! Clean rooms, nice spots to chill and good vibe. The only negative thing was that our room was really close to the restaurant and it was very noisy... So ask for a better room if they put you into the one near the restaurant!

Bad night in this hostel!”

Very bad night in this hostel! The room smelled of wet old paint and mildew and the paint was chipping off the walls. There were dry paint chips all over the bed and pillows. There were no sheets on the old budget foam mattresses, and no blankets provided. The only thing we did have provided were two pillowcases on the pillows, which were stained and dirty. The double bed was actually just two singles pushed together. They have a small water tank, which they refill manually. This means that depending on the traffic, there are times where there is no water. No shower, no tap faucet, *NO FLUSHING THE TOILET*... The water tank is on the roof, and so there is no cold water coming out of any faucet, so no way to refresh yourself if you have a non-AC room. There is no wifi in the rooms. The food was decent, however the service was awkward. The man who served us was very rude. A friend of ours got yelled at for speaking Hindi, because he was white and not Indian, Altogether, bad.

A cheap place for your tight budget”

The dorm room is nice for a one-day stay if you don't mind waiting and sharing for 1 bathroom only. The owner is very lovely and he also owns a restaurant (Yes Restaurant) which has delicious dishes.

It is really cheap and convenient for backpacker but the staff seemed friendly but also dishonest”

It is a cheap location if you are solo and wish to save money. the living condition is very very simple and water pressure is bad (for the 3 ppl bed room). The staff of the hotel seemed friendly but he is always trying to prevent you from trying other places from other cafe and restaurant. We wanted to go to a cafe near by/opposite but he told us that the cafe has been closed. but we went there and saw it open. I dislike dishonesty.

Auberge et restaurant en même temps, pour pouvoir accéder aux chambres, il faut passer par le restaurant. Il y avait une "vibe" que je trouvais un peu étrange, mais c'est peut-être juste moi. Sinon, un des employés (je ne me souviens plus de son nom) était très sympathique et nous a aidé.
