This homestay is actually a family run hotel with well furnished, clean rooms, constant hot water, Wifi and very friendly and helpful staff. It's closer to the higher-end hotels and the area surrounding it is a lot less busy than the rest of Darjeeling, though you still have to look in every direction when stepping out onto the streets in case one of the hundreds of taxis, 4X4 transports or even horses rush past.
Although it's a great place to stay, it does cost a little more than expected (around 1500 Rupees) but if it's cold when your there, it's worth parting with a few hundred rupees more to get hot water and a room heater.
