        Stayed here for 5 nights in April. The balcony area is very nice, with a fantastic view. We met many interesting people whilst reading here, including helpful staff. The prices are very competitive too. Would strongly recommend.

        Don't pay attention to the negative reviews. Best deal in shimla. 400 R for a dorm and 1000 R for the simple double room. For a pricey city you won't find a better value option for a short stay. The staff are friendly and helpful...More

        We really enjoyed our time at the YMCA. You won't get better value in Shimla. Clean rooms and very friendly staff who make you feel at home straight away. The building is historic and fits in well with the colonial vibe in Shimla.
