Welcome to our hostel

Youth Hostel Salt Lake is situated in a tranquil area of Kolkata, close to many sights and attractions. The hostel has its own restaurant serving a variety of cuisines from around the world.

The hostel provides bedrooms with bath and European style toilets as well as both air-conditioned and non-air-conditioned rooms. There is a pick-up and drop-off service from the airport and railway stations at an additional cost.

Kolkata was the capital of India during British rule and its blend of old colonial-style and modern architecture is testament to this. Nearby to the hostel I is Science City, NICCO Park, Victoria Memorial Hall, Kalibari Dakshnineswar Temple, and Belur Math. There is a Kali temple at Kalighat which is also one of the tourist attractions in Kolkata and is visited by a large number of Kali devotees from the different parts of the country.

Good place to stay if you want yo stay away from kolkata city. The room was "outdated" but clean. The staff very nice and helpful. Could recommend for a "short" stay.

Staff was helpful in planning a day trip and in getting permits needed for onward travel. Restaurant was fair. Wifi didn't work for a day and a half, but this was a regional issue, not the fault of the hostel. There was no hot water and room was not clean. A bit out of the way for seeing the city.

Hi, We want to inform you, that our booking with Kolkata Salt Lake Youth Hostel (Kim Lawn GH) was a disaster for us. When we arrived at the hostel by taxi from the airpoirt shortly after midnight the doorman (or guard) said that he could not let us in because he were not informed about guests arriving. We showed him your booking confirmation, pointed at the reference no. etc. and finally asked him to to call the phone number given on the confirmation. He told us that nobody was answering the phone... Then he said he could do nothing for us and we should leave. So we could do nothing else than to look around for a taxi an finally found an open hotel
