Quote:cost per night INR300 for a dormitory for 25 people, in pune?
Do let everyone know bout it if you find it.
300 per person would have made sense though- something like 7500 INR. Is this what you meant?

Quote:I had thought of the Grand Hotel, on MG Rd., at the very beginning/end of it; and up to two years ago at least, they did offer dorms. (Cubicles, more precisely, euphemistically known as single rooms, I believe.) It is a nice place, and in a quiet location along this otherwise main road. (Well, the ISKCON next door may sometimes burst out into festivities. As it seems to be a popular place to hold children's birthday parties in their garden, can't say this bothered me much.)
Thing is I wonder if they could fit 20-25 people in there, I somehow doubt it; nor indeed do I think those beds go for just Rs. 300. But, well, maybe with an attractive group discount. While far from the cheapest place I've ever stayed in (had me a room myself, nice little garden bungalows btw, and then indeed with their attractive beer garden & restaurant. Those dorm beds are/were in the main building), for Pune standards it seemed to be pretty reasonable. But Pune is just not renowned for its budget accommodation, it seems. It is said Paying Guest may be a good approach here, which however as a foreigner always seems difficult to figure out to me. This might be a lot easier on Indian visitors.
