“Hot, dirty and overpriced”
Reviewed 18 July 2012

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.

We were in a group of 4, arriving in Chandigarh by bus from Delhi for the first time, and needing to spend one night before passing through to Shimla - noticed the lodge right there at the bus station - what luck. It is very basic, but neat and clean with a lovely restaurant within the bus complex. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were fortunate to get 2 individual rooms, as later arrivals had to settle for the dormitory. One has to settle for the general noise from a bus terminus, but for the price and location, it is well worth it.

Room Tip: Take a room furthest away from reception as it is less noisy
