Stayed here for a night during my visit to Mumbai in May 2016. Decent for a stay of just 1-2 nights. Rooms are comfortable, but small - no natural ventilation. A/C can get quite cold. Staff are very helpful. They even provided me with toothpaste for the next morning as I did not have it with me. Water is provided... More

Great for students (and others traveling on a strict budget). Small breakfast (omelets and some toast) available for 10 or 20 rupees each morning. Also there are usually many activities that take place in the common area. If you take a 5 min walk down the street, you can easily come across a taxi. Food shopping, restaurants and stalls are...

Don't expect any service or cooperation from the staff !! If u tell them to bring a tea also they will refuse . They just provide a bed and rest is all up to u . They need to realise that guest satisfaction is top most than any other thing . Location of guest house is very very good .... More

A friend booked a room for us here. I had not seen it before. On arriving, the staff were friendly and warm. The rooms are quite small but clean. The location is very convenient. The annoyance started when I used the shower. The hot water was a poor trickle and very annoying to use. After repeated friendly reminders, on the... More

Friendly helpful staff, clean rooms and excellent location close to restaurants and shopping area. Taxi drivers from the airport don't seem to know how to get to it so you need to take the full address and phone number. Ask for landmarks so that you can direct the driver.

I stayed at the YMCA Colaba for 5 nights from the 11th Feb. The staff are helpful and after initially only being able to stay two nights, the staff told me I could stay for the entire five night stay after I'd enquired about availability on day two. I found every part of this place to be clean, plus the... More

The rooms are clean, functional and ok size though 2300 for double room is a bit high for that size but the location of colaba might not give you a better rate. The room has a TV and AC.

The rooms are a bit small but for the price it offers at the location it is very good value for money. The place is safe and it has its own charm of being a hostel and guest house. The staff are very friendly and the gates are open round the clock.
