Mr Burman is one of the best hosts we've ever met. He made us really feel at home, as did his staff. Wonderful home cooked meals, nice and clean room. This place is an oasis in the midst of wild Agra!

My daughter and I had the opportunity to stay at the Bansi Homestay in January. From the moment we arrived at the front door, until well after we moved onto the next town, I felt we had a home in Agra at the Bansi Homestay. We had arrived in the morning and did not have much planned. I wanted a...

We stayed here for one night while visiting the Taj Mahal at the end of December. Mr Burman, the owner is so personable, interesting, knowledgeable and helpful - he made our stay. In a country where you have to be on your guard ALL the time as everyone is trying to scam you, sell you something you don't need, etc...

The home stay has a very family and friendly environment. The crew is helpful and give you all the attention they can. The room was awesome: beautiful, comfortable and clean. And the breakfast option is also a good way to go.

My father and I stayed at the Bansi Homestay for 2 days/1 night. We had read positive reviews and were impressed by the quality of this homestay. We felt like we were at home from the moment we walked in. The staff were polite, friendly and went the extra mile in helping us with any needs, and answering any questions...

After reading all the reviews we were very disappointed. Pictures really oversell this place. Hospitality and food were quite good, room large, bathroom good... but and a big one.. sheets were dirty! Slept in our travel sleeping sheet bag. .. for us that in unacceptable and ruined it.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time out to post a review on the tripadvisor. You were at the HOME and you could have got the sheets changed. I am really sorry for the disappointment. I wish I could set the clock back and saw to it that the sheets were as per your expectation. With all the positive...

We spent three nights here. Very clean, modern, stylish and comfortable. The outstanding feature though was the hospitality. This extended from the manager personally escorting me to his preferred optometrist so I could buy some replacement glasses, to arranging drivers, advising on prices, and assisting with tickets and train times. He really went out of his way to help make...

Very Nice and familial place. Large and few high quality rooms. I went here with my friends and then I came back with my family. The boss and his team are so kind and careful. The breakfast is with a very good indian specialty and home cooked. It is the hostel I prefered during my 4 months in India !

Perfect place to stay in Agra. This place is conveniently located close to the Taj and down from the main street, so not too noisy. The staff and welcoming and friendly. They will go out of your way to help you, for example, I emailed in advance about the full moon viewing of the Taj and Mr. Burman went out...
