It is a great place to stay when in Agra, you see the view of Taj Mahal from its rooftop. This is really affordable with clean rooms and clean washrooms with all the basic amenities. It has a cafe at it's rooftop which has a fun vibe to it. The staff is very cooperative. Overall my experience here was great!!

We have visited Agra only for one day, to visit Taj mahal. The hostel was very near, it was just a 5-10 min walk. Also from the hostel restaurant we could see the top of the Taj Mahal. In the hostel next to our room were cute cat babies and the hostel personal was caring for them in a lovely way. We felt safe and welcome there :)

One of the best hostels I've stayed in Agra. Clean, friendly and located strategically. They also arranged car to travel around and bus to travel to Delhi. I totally recommend Friends hostel if you're traveling solo or with friends.

Hostel was very clean which is most important thing for me . You can ask anything to Bilal and Juned about everything. They are very helpfull people. I also tasted super delicious Indıan foods and drinks. Agrayı ziyaret ederseniz. Bu hostelde kalabilirsiniz. Temizlik konusunda şüpheniz olmasın. Hostel bünyesinde çok lezzetli yemekler yapan aşçılar da var.

The hostel itself was fine at first, not too dirty. We had to move rooms because there was a leak in the ceiling over the toilet. The second room didn’t have hot water. We found a chunk of raw meat on the floor. At night we realised that the room was located on a rather busy road and within the hostel we were also surrounded by the family who ran it - this lead to many sleepless nights.

얼떨결에 당일치기를 하려던 아그라에서 2박을 하게 되었습니다. 급하게 찾은 숙소임에도 불구하고 직원들은 상당히 따듯 하고, 친절했습니다. 침대 매트리스도 메모리폼이고 이불도 더 가져달라면 더 가져다 줌니다. 따뜻한물, 와이파이도 잘 되고, 150루피짜리 오므라이스가 상당히 맛있고 양도 많습니다 . The hostel receptionists are very kind. Bed is also nice and room is very warm . Nice wi-fi , hot water, clean toilet and nice restaurant. There is korean food called omlet rice, it was fantastic. Come here and enjoy !
