The dormitory at CSTM is very good for staying at cheap rate.
1.The sleeping area, bathrooms, lobby is clean.
2. The besdsheets and pillow covers are changed before the arrival of passenger. Though blankets remain same unless asked to change.
3. The staff is helpful but they don't allow to enter before 8 am or 8pm, whatever time the pax has booked from.

If arrived early, you can wait in the lobby which have comfortable sofa present there.
4. They ask the pax to exit atleast 5-10 min before time so that they can change the bedsheets and pillow covers.
5. The beds are arranged in double decker form with odd no. bed being lower bed and even no. bed being upper bed.
6. Charging point and reading lamp present at each bed.
7. Dormitory is situated at 3rd floor in main line area. 2 lifts are available.

One tip more, if you find a RR/Dormitory empty in any station at mumbai online just book it immediately if you want to stay at clean and affordable place in mumbai.
My experience:
I had a ticket in 12620 matsyagandha exp so , I was eligible for RR at LTT, but when I checked, it was full. So thought to give a try at Mumbai central (as I had stayed there earlier and found it good) . Bought a 2S ticket from mumbai central to Dahanu road in Gujarat express just

to book RR. Checked availability of RR , it was available but could not book, as ICICI was not accepting payment from my card. So thought to book next day but next day all rooms were booked. LTT, BCT finished. Now I took a chance to book RR at CST. Booked a ticket in Deccan exp from CST to LNL, and checked RR at CST.It was available and immediately I booked a bed in dormitory. Had this trick also failed, then I would have to shell out atleast 2000 for a hotel i.e. 10 times of what I spent in dormitory. So, if available book RR at mumbai immediately. CST and BCT retiring rooms are clean. Not sure about LTT.

    -@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,...
