Met some proper genuine people from all over the world staying at the India House. We'd heard good things before we arrived and it totally lived up to expectations. Okay, so it's not like some of the more up market hostels you'll find on America's west coast - but not many hostels will beat India House for atmosphere and character.
It's 10 minutes on the street car from downtown, the breakfast is decent, the lounge is a total chill zone and the back yard is the place to be in the early evenings.
We had one of the private rooms - to be honest, it was a little damp and scruffy but we soon made it feel like home. The banging of doors late at night might also be a problem, so bring your ear plugs.
Would be stay here again? Yes we would!
