You can appreciate Malgudi Holidays home stay if you look at it as a template for the Marigold Hotel movies. A totally run down place, but managed by an energetic and apologetic manager, cook, bellboy all rolled into one.
But in all seriousness i think most of the Hostel movies were shot in this place.
They have gone a bit far in trying to portray a very homely image by giving you used bed sheets and pillow covers and towels, with stains and marks from the countless others who have used them before.
The bathrooms are a work of art with rusted mirrors and open live wires sticking out of the wall where a hot water heater should have been. You get that lovely thrill that you will be shocked to death while taking a shower. Quite an exhilarating experience.
Honestly, even after all the negative feedback on this forum, the promoters/owners of the place have done nothing to rectify any of the complaints shows their interest in the place.
Like i said before, the only positive about this place is Akash the one man army who does his best to make things work with the limited resources he has.More
