I accidentally landed here as i could not find a room elsewhere on a friends suggestion. The place is currently under renovation and they have dine a fair job. This place is a good option for the corporates not for families. Palatial rooms dating back to 150 years and located centrally very close to Indian Museum bang on Espalande. Basic... More

We had a twin room with private facilities and were very pleased with out room but beware the beds are very hard. The staff are lovely especially the doormen and the food is good. It is very well located being very close to Connaught Place. Do consider taking the excellent metro (clean, cheap, fast and nearly empty) into the city.... More

Please avoid this place. The rooms are badly maintained and not cleaned. The toilet was not cleaned before the room was allocated. The hotel does not have a lift and you have to carry your luggage all the way up all by yourself.

The old saying - you get what you pay for - is truly evident here. YMCA is always a safe and inexpensive way to find accommodation. However I must admit, that sometimes it is worth the extra few dollars to find a more comfortable bed. I find the YMCA beds are very clean, but on the down side they are... More

A fairly standard YMCA but a decent meeting place and good value budget option. If you know what to expect from a YMCA then you should not be disappointed by this offering. Beds were perfectly acceptable and I actually had a pretty good night's sleep. I found the staff helpful and friendly, too. Cheap but pretty cheerful.

We stayed at the Chowringhee YMCA January 4-13, 2011 with a large group for a medical mission trip. Our pastor had managed to find this place for the group. This is the oldest YMCA in all of Asia, built in 1857, but it really doesn't look a day older than 1858!! The building is definitely old. There is no elevator,... More
