Liked: Although my first reaction on arrival was "Grief this can't be it", thr homestay turned out to be a really nice place. It's located in a quiet cul de sac road about 2.5km from the middle of MG road. However there is a metro stop 5 minutes walk away with trains every 10 minutes to there. The place itself is more of a self contained apartment with several bedrooms off the communal lounge and kitchen area. All bedrooms have private en suite bathrooms. There is a guest entrance witha keycode to get in so is secure. The owners provide a good breakfast included in the price and the wifi connection is really fast. The owners are really helpful and informative and are pleasurable to be with.

Disliked: The place could do with a clean, but having said that the beds are fine and no sign of anything crawling or scuttling about!

Liked: This property is owned by one of the most nice and genuine Indian families I have come across in my travels abroad. They live here in this house, and they share it with people from all over the globe. I stayed there for 2 days and loved every moment of it. Its cosy, in a quiet street and great if you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of Bangalore. Included is the use of their wifi and they even wake up in the morning to cook you a special Indian family breakfast, which is great by the way! Upon arriving, I was greeted and treated like a member of their family and I really miss leaving.

Disliked: Nothing it was fantastic.

Liked: it's near Halasuru station. It's clean and the beds are comfortable. During breakfast you get to meet other people who stay here. There's wifi connection but you have to pay.

Disliked: The place can be really hard to find. make sure you note the directions and landmarks if you're taking an auto there. Every morning around 6-7am there's this guy who shouts really loud (maybe selling stuff) in the neighborhood. I was expecting it to be a quiet area.

Liked: Really friendly owner and nice long-staying travellers to get tips from! A bit out of the way but close to MG Road and Church St (lots of eating and shopping options), but a bit of a hike to sights etc. Big rooms, immaculate bathrooms and quiet location! Breakfast included and cheap (but slow) internet. I would recommend Sumanjay!

Disliked: Distance to sights/activities.

09 February 2010

Liked: The Hostel was central and in a safe area. But after two nights a had insect bites all over me so I think there were some kinds of insects in the matress or in the room. The stuff is friedly, but the owner trys to charge extra for everything. E.g. "you can do the landry in the bathroom- 100 Rupees" or "i can call you a taxi to the Airport- extra charge for me and for the phonecall". So after two days a felt like a walking dollar sign.
