The Hostelz.com Review

Locul.Uptown is warm, thanks to the friendly atmosphere it creates with the aid of its guests, the cook, and pet dogs within its premises. The caretaker doesn't bear even a slight sign of a frown, even when someone wakes him up at 11:30 p.m. to check in.

The Location

This is in a residential area in a posh locality (near Golf Course road) -- this property is just two kilometers away from Cantonment Railway station. The flip side of this is there are no shops nearby for a quick purchase of groceries or similar items. The bus stop is also a little far and you would have to walk quite a distance. This is not really an issue if you are planning to move within the city using Ola/Uber or if you have a vehicle with you that is either your own or have rented.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms have a reasonable space to move around. One drawback is that there is no mirror inside the room -- you will have to step out to use the mirror in the common area. The bathroom is equipped with sufficient hooks/stands for your clothes as well as to keep aside your toiletries. Bathroom maintenance is "ok-ish" -- it depends on how the dorm guests leave it for the next person's use. The bathroom in the four-bed female dorm on the ground floor also tends to be smelly because of a storeroom/water pipes room that is next to the bathroom.

Common Spaces

There is plenty of space on both floors (ground and first) to spend time chatting with fellow guests or to play a game or to work/write something even in the middle of the night. People tend to be friendly here and form quite a bond that usually extends outside of the dorm stay.

Summary

This is one place we will visit again given the location advantage and its pricing. As breakfast is included here in the booking cost itself, it creates an occasion for people to get together and talk. The food is cooked with love and the cook is pretty chatty himself and communicates well in English. Breakfast typically has a choice between bread/Indian food and fruits, so it is unlikely for you to leave the hostel with an empty stomach in the morning.
