It was my second time at 66/2B and I will go back again. It is a perfect guest house if you are on vacation. The room is spacious, clean, the staff are super helpful. The WiFi in the room works well. There is a popular Cafe below the guesthouse, a perfect place to have a nice cup of coffee or cup of darjeeling tea. It is a simple, homely safe place.
Situated at a very good place

Dirty, overpriced, noisy Hostel, don’t be fooled by ‘Free Breakfast’
on Jan 9, 2019
We alerted the hostel that we would be arriving late, around 1am, due to a connecting flight.
Upon arrival the place appeared closed, so much for a 24 hour front desk. In order to get in I jumped over a picket fence, where I was greeted by a security guard sleeping on the patio floor, who could not speak a word of English, in order to get our bags through he went and grabbed a machete to rip open some rope fixing the picket fence gate together! Which was unsettling!
When inside the staff were sleeping on the floor, they could barely speak English and got us to sign documents to then show us to our room, the room was dirty and dated with light fixtures hanging of the wall.
In the morning we complained to the manager who could speak a bit more English, informing him that this was not the room advertised on the Expedia page. With a bit of negotiation we were bumped up to a better room.
This new room although more spacious, was dated and grimy, there was a distinct musty smell.
Also the room was near the street and very noisy, it was necessary to sleep with ear plugs due to the neighbouring noise.
The Expedia page advertised the hostel as having breakfast included, which is not the case, we pointed this out to reception and they denied it. It even says on the back of the hostel rooms doors that the hostel does provide a complimentary breakfast in room, but it was unclear how to get this or what was on offer, so we didn’t get any during our stay. On one day we opted to eat in the Wise Owl cafe downstairs to try it out as it was always busy and bustling. The food portion was small, expensive, and service was painfully slow, I wouldn’t recommend this either.
During our stay, we were informed by the hostel manager that they had overbooked and wondered if we would be kind enough to move to another hotel; given we only had one more night there we didn’t bother, but it seemed inconsiderate and we didn’t appreciate being asked, maybe they need to review their booking system.
I would recommend this hostel to backpackers, but not for anyone else.
