We are in a six bed dorm and so far we have only shared with boys, from England and South Africa. It costs 400 rupees a night ($8) but it's very nice with wifi and air conditioning - the shower however is probably the worst we have had all year, hardly works and takes ages to fill the bucket with water, but hey it's all good. It's ...
