Backpacker Panda Lake Pichola Udaipur
Ranked #10 of 231 Speciality Lodging in Udaipur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 November 2017 via mobile

I'm generally not overly critical of hostels. However, this was an exceptional case. I reserved a private room in advance and came to check in. The room I was given was beyond dirty and the sheets were covered with spots and hair from the previous guests. Additionally, the bathroom was a wreck and the toilet was full of urine (not an exaggeration).

We asked that the toilet be cleaned and the sheets changed and the result was a quick spray of the bathroom (no cleaning products used) and different sheets while ignoring the hair-filled pillow cases. Nevertheless, we stayed overnight.

The room faced the hallway (only an internal window) and the noise from the common room continued until 3:30. It promptly resumed at 7:30 with the music from reception.

Prior to going to sleep, I went upstairs for a beer on the terrace with my girlfriend and another friend who we brought along. We asked for three glasses and was provided glasses that were not only dirty, but still had beer in them from the previous people who had them (no joke, all 3 of them).

Long story even longer... The stay did not leave a positive impression. They are incapable of adhering to basic hygiene standards and don't seem to place any emphasis on customer satisfaction. There are many better options in Udaipur.

Me and my friend decided to go to Udaipur from Mumbai and booked flights and hostel the same day. It all worked out very cheap and we had a lovely stay. Originally we booked for one night at Backpacker Panda, but enjoyed our stay here so much we decided to extend it for one more night, before moving on to the next city. I would recommend this hostel to travellers from all over, it is has a very cool atmosphere and all the staff are very friendly and helpful, especially shubham rao. He made sure we had the perfect stay, not only in the accommodation but on our daily travels around Udaipur.

This is the first time I visited Backpackers panda!! I would say they have neat,clean and very tidy rooms and managed very well. The owning people are very nice and co operative even though it was a very first time we didn't felt so. They guided and helped us in any manner they can.Even its a safe place for us and our bags. The ambience of roof top was super awesome to spent time even. I will love to stay with backpackers panda for sure in future whenever I visit the city again. I recommend it to all ages group to visit once as it is economical and superb !!! Thumbs up guys, Keep it up!!!! :)

Room Tip: Rooms with four beds are very nice and comparatively spacious.
