Liking is per se need

Liking is per se need, yes! A small couch might be reviewed 'the best' by a person looking for an economical roof for a transit. And so goes with this Hotel..
I was in Bombay CST with a friend and my requirement was 2 night economical stay near CST Railway Station. And I found this hotel. Its a dormitory with TV, fan, locker & bathrooms. It had an AC dormitory also. the AC dormitory had bunker type cots. The manager in the front office was ultimate rude and the water in the bathrooms were irregular on the days I stayed. Water might not be a problem always. The beds were visibly clean and the people in the dormitory were decent.
Very nice hotel for people on real tight budget. For backpackers.

This one is strictly for people on tight budget. Well you dont always have money. And you need to travel and stay in a hotel. And this one is a decent option. Altogether a different experience. As the name suggests, some of its beds are like bunks on a ship. I used to stay there long time back, maybe 10 years back, when I had just finished my studies and was getting on my own. At the section behind the reception, there lies ac dormitory with bunk beds. And on the other side, there's a large hall with bed attached with a storage space. Each bed has a storage space. There are few rooms, which are no more than enclosed boxes, enough to suffocate you. As per my experience, the dormitories are better. The hotel is mostly used by businessmen, not only from India, but abroad also. Once I met a Japanese guy who had come to India to book a consignment of bananas. They have common toilets and bathrooms, which were very well maintained. Food is also available in house. No frill, simple food. Very near to Railway station, Gateway of India, Colaba market. Not at all for families. And take care of your belongings. Hotel staff is courteous and helpful. Not much to say about this hotel.
