Hostel in Colaba

by Clodagh Online Now Sep 12, 2011 at 1:37 PM

Can anyone please recommend a youth hostel(not hotel) in Colaba, i've tried online searches but only seem to be getting hotels.
I am looking for somewhere nice, clean with ac and can be basic enough. Would like to find one that is big and popular if poss as i would like to be amoungst other travellers to find my feet in India.

    Hi - two of the cheapest places are the YWCA International Guest House on Madame Cama Road and the budget Lonely Planet recommendation - Salvation Army Red Shield Hostel. If you check the recent reviews on TripAdvisor though, you'll stay away from the Salvation Army Red Shield Hostel! Be sure to ask to see your room first (before you pay) - whichever place you choose. If you'd like to meet some of the Mumbai VTers try posting a meet. You can also post on - you're likely to find other travelers who will be in Mumbai when you are. Enjoy Mumbai!
