A review of Non-AC dormitory at Pune station.
AC dormitory has already been reviewed by Shivam Rai (/blog/post/1677519)
Since i had to board the good morning killer SC shatabdi from Pune i opted to stay at Dorm (retiring rooms were full and i gave the only AC dorm bed available to my dad). So here's a short review for those thinking on similar line.
Pros:
...
more...

1)Is ON the station itself, making it good for those who wish to board early Morning trains.
2)Is very cheap (Rs 120 per person for 12 hours is very cheap indeed, especially when masala dosa downstairs costs 70 :P )
3)washrooms/bathrooms are quite clean.
4)Has lockers if you want to safely keep your bags.
Cons:
1)is ON the station :P the issue with being so close to station is you'll be "treated" to loud honking sounds by alcos and EMD's alike for the entire night. they are VERY loud and since is Pune is a busy station you'll have to put up with it with no respite at all.
2)Has bed bugs (not all beds)
3)the security isn't very tight. the attendant warned us to not keep Mobile phones in open and doze off as those have been stolen in past.
Do keep these in Mind when booking a dorm. if you need a good night sleep and have an early morning train to catch it is advisable to search for rooms in hotels close to station rather than spending the night here.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
