Liked: Its good quality, clean, well presented. I stayed in a four bed dorm which was nice. The restaurant is good and the staff are friendly. The internet coverage and speed at sufficient.

Disliked: Its slightly more than I'd usually pay for a dorm, but it is probably slight higher quality also. Theres a dorm for half the price across the road if you want to drop your standards a bit. Its not particularly close to any attractions, but I think that is generally true of most accommodation in Jaipur.

Liked: Friendly staff and a good location. Gorgeous views from the rooftop restaurant, with good food at a reasonable price. Nice, clean bathroom. Very fancy, and surprising that it has a dor for such a god price.

Disliked: Small dorm with no lockers or space. Luckily there were only two of us staying so we had space. The door locks, but there is only one key, so leaving the key at the reception is a must.

Liked: Out was clean, the food in the restaurant was good and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Disliked: I booked into the dorm and emailed them to request pick up at the bus station but never received a reply, when I arrived no one seemed to know anything about my booking and I was told there was no dorm and I am still unsure if they are confused or what. The website says there is a dorm and it's air conditioned, they showed me two "dorms", one had a water cooler and neither were air conditioned. It's a very nice hotel but if you're looking for a dorm this isn't the only place.

Liked: They have a very clean place and a nice roof top restaurant. The staff and the boss are generally nice and helpful. The view of the roof top restaurant is good, but I am not sure whether it will still be good when the building nearby commences, because it is likely to block the view.

Disliked: The only regret is that the boss didn't keep his promises to pick us up at the railway station which caused us walking to the hostel for an hour, and didn't refund the money to us as we cancelled a night.
