The room is for 1 person only. The house is located near Saltlake Swimming Pool. This is a fantastic locality to live with quite a bit of greenery. It is a basic Indian house. I had a lot of visitors from New Zealand and they loved it. Do not expect everything to be as clean as you might find in another western country. You may also find your bed much firmer than what you are used to.

In the evening there is a massive open air street food market. Lot of options, really yummy and cheap food.

The space
I live in Christchurch, New Zealand. You will be hosted by my parents Dilip and Chandra. My parents are super friendly. We can help you with most things like booking train tickets/bus tickets in India to hiring a cheap car for day trips in Kolkata (with a driver).

My dad is retired and my mum is a home maker. She runs a small tuition for underprivileged children. My sister-in-law, Payel also lives in the house but she is mostly in her room.It is a 2 storey house and there is no lift. We have 3 people working in our house.

Guest access
Common Space, Common Toilet/Bathroom, Balcony, Roof top Garden.
In India toilets have water and not tissue paper - so please be prepared.

Other things to note
If you arrive in airport between 9am -8pm, my father can pick you up (if he is available) - Will cost you Rs 300 (4.5 USD) mostly to cover the parking charges - Paid Directly

If you are coming by train, try to find the prepaid taxi counter - else you will be ripped off. Always a good idea to have Uber installed in your phone

With 1 day notice you can get fresh quality home food prepped by my mum (like chapatti - as many as you want, rice - as much as you like , curry) for breakfast/lunch/dinner - Will cost you Rs 100 each meal (1.5 USD) - Paid Directly

If you need to hire a car, my father can arrange that easily. It would cost you around Rs 1000/-(13 USD) for 6-8 hrs including driver.

If you need to book train tickets I can easily buy it for you. You can just pay to my Indian bank account.

The biggest football field in Asia, Yuva Bharati Krirangan is located within 5kms.

I do not live in India. I am just helping out my parents. But I can absolutely help with booking train tickets within India - Agents charge an exorbitant rate and you can't book online without an Indian credit card/bank account or cell phone number. I would absolutely love to help you out, I can just email you the tickets. I have done this for so many of my friends from New Zealand who visited India in the last couple of years.
