After reading the reviews we decided to give it a try... what an awful mistake we made!
To sum everything up:

Pros:
+ The restaurant has a nice view of the taj, and the food is not bad (not awesome either)
+ It is really close to the Taj, just a 15 minutes walking, or a short ride in rickshaw

Cons:
- Cold water. We asked if there was a problem with the hot water, and they told us that no, that it was working fine, but there was no hot water at all. The water was also REALLY dirty! (check the pictures)
- No bedsheet cover
- Wifi only working on the lobby
- The pillows and the mattress were really hard (check pictures)

Extra notes:
- Without AC it is really hard to be there, the place is really hot. We originaly booked a room without AC, and ended up changing it. They didnt have a regular AC room, so they offered us one with the "Indian version" of an AC. It cooled the air, but was really noisy.
- They have rickshaws always waiting on the entrance of the homestay, but other couple adviced us not to take them, that they were overcharged, so we just walked 3 blocks and took the ones on the street.

Clean and nice room, and the staff was very helpfull! Even though it is not located in the city centre I would recommend a stay here. It is a quiet area and the staff will help you get around in Agra. The chauffeur of the hotel showed us around in Agra and gave us tips along the way. If I would come back to Agra someday I would definitely stay here again.

This home stay is an absolute paradise! The staff is very friendly and eager to help.We stayed in this beautiful place just for two night and had the best sleep so far in all my trip around India.. The room is quite big and i love the style, the bed is just amazing, breakfast is pretty good. The owner is very helpful and reliable friendly who spares no efforts to help you where ever possible and there's really nothing bad we have to say. The rooms are clean, comfortable, We had some great talks about the Indian society and culture and we got to learn a lot. The location is pretty good (a big factor with us). Food was 10/10. I totally recommend this place!!

The Rooms here are good value for money and clean but it's the staff that make the place. The owner is very friendly and will bend over backwards to help you out. The chef and rooftop restaurant were very good too. We Would recommend this place.

Vile - absolutely vile. AVOID this place at all costs. Rooms are dusty, unclean and teeming with cockroaches. But that's not the end of it!

Owner tried to overcharge us - then threatened our lives by intimating that he could people to sort us out - suffice it to say, we made a swift exit from Agra after this - but not after reporting this incident to the police. The owner is violent, rude and extremely pushy. If you refuse to eat at his restaurant he becomes very hostile.

As other reviews below me have already explained - under the guise of being initially very friendly, he will corner you into using the hostel's own tuk tuk driver who will hideously overcharge you..and as one review from a solo female traveller below explains, is quite a creepy old man.

This is no guest house, and as some other reviews below have explained too..there is a huge bed bug infestation affecting this place, with the owner refusing to do anything about it.

If you're unlucky enough to stay here, my advice is; agree on the price before it comes to checking out, have a scan of the rooms and beds to see any infestation of cockroaches/bed bugs, and finally do not accept any of the owner's travel services (his overpriced tuk tuk service, and train booking service).

I have video evidence of the confrontation in which he threatened us, and am willing to provide it to anyone who wants confirmation of what I have written above. AVOID this place at all cost

We were satisfied by the room facilities except for the bathroom. The food was tasty and the staff were quite friendly. Considering the price of it it was good enough as we stayed only for a night. Good
