I arrived in Chandigarh at about 3am and needed a cheap place to stay that was central but still within a backpackers budget. Transit lodge was right next to the bus station and only 800 INR so I thought I would give it a try.
Having backpacked around India, I have stayed in some pretty bad places but this was by far the worst. Whilst the one member of staff kicking around was fairly friendly, the room was stupidly hot, the walls were grimy and the bathroom was falling to pieces, literally!
I would definitely not recommend staying here. One night was just about manageable but I checked out first thing the next morning to find something else.
