“Helpful Staff and Great Price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2011

The staff was very helpful and friendly. They did originally try to charge us for more than we made the reservation for, so be careful of this. The location is in close proximity to the Taj, and is great for the budget traveler. The rooms were clean but had to ask for soap, toilet paper, blankets and towels. However, this is fairly typical for India.

We emailed booking a room at Sheela garden but somehow, they were full when we arrived so they offered a room in Sheela Inn as a replacement. They said there's free pickup for us between the two if we want to come back to sheela garden for dinner but actually it's a lie. The room here is not clean, beds are filthy and smelly. There's virtually no hot water, because what they said hot is not hot at all. We stayed in 2 rooms, one has TV, the other has not. When we complained they said they will put one in our room but nothing happened after that. When we made some payment, we didn't have enough rupee so we asked if they can exchange some us dollar for us. They gave us a very low exchange rate: 1 USD for 42 RS and when we bargained saying that we could make a deal at 45.3 at any shop on the street. They rudely refused to do the exchange.
I would say staying at Sheela and dealing with people of this hostel chain is the worst experience we had in our entire trip to India. We would definitely NOT recommend any one to this terrible place, full of lying people.

The Sheela Inn isn't a bad place to stay but it isn't a great place to stay either. Location wise, it's great. Only a 15 minute walk/5 minute rickshaw ride away from the Taj Mahal, and Taj Ganj area, which is great for food and rooftop restaurants that have a view of the Taj.
My room was large and from what I could tell, clean. I also had a window that opened and let in daylight which I found to be a luxury in an Indian city! The bathroom, however, was not as clean. It was infested with bugs and I had no hot water. The staff kindly brought up buckets of hot water for me when I informed them of this, and this was done very quickly. I only ventured to the rooftop restaurant once but I was bothered by 2 young boys who worked there, and the view was not as good as what some of the restaurants nearer the Taj South Gate offered.
Overall, this is a great place to stay for a couple of nights, especially if you are visiting Agra to see the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. However it is very overpriced. I paid Rs700 for one person in a twin room - it really was not worth this amount.
