A great place to call home.
Close to Sudder street, the Paragon is a great place for travelers on the cheap in Calcutta, and will put you right in the middle of things! It is a great place to meet travelers from all over the world. The bathrooms are shared, but clean. Be sure to make reservations ahead of time.
It is a good idea to bring your own padlock, but there is also a place to store you belongings where a guard will watch over them 24/7.
There is no official time that the doors lock, but you must knock and wake the guard up if it is after midnight! There is no bar, but a liquor store down the street.
