I stayed overnight at the dormatory of the Kolkata Airport. The booking was done over phone with the office of Airport Manager 03339874987. The Dormatory is part of the accomodation facilities provided within the Airport building itself. In addition to the dormatory, there are double and 4 bed rooms too available, but you have to be lucky if they are available. The dormatory is a very large hall with almost 25-30 beds. Each bed has an adjacent table. There are wooden lockers for you to lock your belongings if you want, but then do carry a lock.
The charges for the dorm are Rs. 325 per night. Tickets requd for getting the booking.Blanket, towel soap bar is with the bed. The mattresses are old. There are 2 IWC and 1 EWC toilet and 3 bath rooms which are clean. Geysers in the bath room work. Staff not very polite, but ok.
Good for o/n stop and catching early morning flight. Food is not available in the dorm. You can walk to the arrival lounge and buy some snacks.
Location - within the Airport building. No hasseles of getting up at 3:30 and getting ready to rush for 6am flight. No tension of getting taxi, reaching late etc.
Tariff - very economical Rs. 325.
Upkeep - Generally quite clean.
Toilet - Kept well
Mattress - very old, hard and not comfortable at all. But all are not the same. Some are ok.
Staff - Not very committed, like the ones you find in govt. depts. Some mattresses were kept upside down, but the staff was not bothered.
