On 10.01.2017 I stayed there. The tariff is reasonable and value for money. The check -out time is 24hrs. Rooms are very neat and clean. The atmosphere is very homely. It is not the hotel atmosphere. It is a charitable organization that run this guest house.

Located just behind Egmore Station the guest house provides an excellent base for exploring Chennai. 10 minutes walk from the suburban line platforms which will take you to the key sites. Good value dinner with veg and non-veg options.

This was the second time we stayed at the YWCA in Chennai. Remember the food being great which it still was. The staff this time around could have been a bit friendlier.

Good service from the counter staff, and good communication by email re bookings. Lobby and general eating area clean if a little spartan. Our room was clean, but needed freshening up with a lick of paint. Air con antiquated and ugly, set into the window. Plenty of hot water, and sleep quality good. The location & amenities left a lot...

I've stayed at the YWCA International Guest house several times over the last 20 years, but this review is about the last time I stayed there, which was in August 2016.
