The location and the activities in and around YMCA
I like the place, so friendly and quiet. The internet connection is good too. The place is situated in between malls so it is just a good location.
I wish there will be variety of food for breakfast though its good but if its always the same food you eat every morning, you will get bored with the tasted.
room was neat and with all expected facilities. reception was very helpful. temples are nearby. relaxed atmosphere !
some more choice of veg. food in the canteen ! ( kids enjoyed the non veg though !!
really nice stay in ymca,it is in good lacation,good maintainance,low cost,it is good for family stay also
for outside countrypeople like india,food provided in breackfast is not good for vegitarion.in TV international news channel should be there for time pass.
Budget and the location of course.
the people at the desk are very helpfull and friendly.I liked the atmosphere.I was surprised by the restaurant.We game in late and it was very confinient for us that we could eat.
i missed a little fridge on my room.But further was the stay very good and have no complaints.
the room was clean
1.there was no room for the price i booked. Night clerk said he could do anything but give us more expencive room. 2. Internet is working only 8am - 10 pm. 3.we arrived at 11pm, and it was not possible to find food anywhere around, and alltogether place is in the middle of nowhere 4. the breakfast was not-eatable
It was a normal room, can't say I really like something about it.
The room was pretty old and didn't have any sunlight.
Cleanlyness is very good
Horrible breakfast...I stayed in many hi hostels in Europe and other places. No proper breakfast...It is simply worst ever i have seen.
is comfortable, cheap and economic.
Cleanliness, helpfulness and discipline.
I could not sleep or concentrate on my work in my room i.e. 340. My room window has glass flaps which are not air tight or soundproof. People who came for dance training making music or noises outside disturbed me.
There was good service in the sense that when we requested for extra pillows, it was granted. Should have hair dryer in hotel room. However, internet service in room was not available..Have to be in certain part of the hotel.
Comfortable, clean, fair price with free wireless
It is just a pleasant place to stay; simply furnished and fairly comfortable for a short period.
I wish the membership benefits of YMCA are linked, just like IYH
The Triple room is challenge for space
