Hyperabad is a unique and exciting place for Canadian travellers, and if you're staying there you'll want to be comfortable. We will point you in the right direction to find the best hostels in Hyderabad when you are visiting south-central India and hope to stay within a limited budget.

Therefore, an average is reached based on every element rated as well as all the scores given by visitors. The more people who have visited and posted their scores, the more reliable the ratings are.
