New Delhi, the personnel who are manning the scanning are not at all doing their duties instead you can find them either dozing or reading newspapers, poor passengers have to lift their heavy luggage to put on scanner machine & again remove other side thinking it is scanned

Please do not stay at Veekay Tourist Home (close to exit of pf 1 Yesvantpur Jn). Its the worst hotel experience we had. When I booked the hotel by checking their site, I found it fine and it is closer to Yesvantpur Jn. When we checked into the room we noticed that there was no intercom to call reception, TV did not had remote and the TV itself was not working.
All night I was bitten by bedbugs and I could hardly sleep. I had rashes on my arms, back, forehead. Next day found that there was no hot water in our room. Checked with reception and they said that we can take bath in another room. That another room was having
smell of cigaretts, liquor. We complained all this to reception but they did not even bother to apologize or give us some sort of discounts. We checked with few others in the hotel and found similar situation. We checked out immediately the next day.
The driver of car that we hired told us that there are some good hotels near to pf 6 of Yesvanpur Jn.

If you are travelling in this train to Kannur , get down at MAJN and take bus to Central station never get an auto ..for a 10km travel they charge you 200 /- or else need the bargain power , if you get out of the station and an half km walk you can reach the main road and from there you will get buses to central station and fare is Rs 5/- most of the buses will go through the station.

Local buses can be seen during arrival of trains just outside PF 1 on left side of the parking, which gets full soon. check with tea stall boys or coolies.

Planning for a visit to JOG FALLS,then follow these couple of guidlines
1.Alight at SRF/Sagara Jambagaru.Bcz Sagar(locally called) has good restaurents &transport facilities(no second thought jus get down here)to Joga(jog falls).
2.Private transport:Jus outside the station you will have cabs ready.hire a cab for UP/Down ride(I haven't seen any private buses,visited 10-7-2016)
Public transport:Sagar bus stand is jus 400m away. limited
choice here,first bus towards Honnavar via JOG at 9:05am,second was at noon 2:15pm(but ever depend on these buses,even if u get buses to jog,U Dont get return buses to Sagar(very* less frequent)
(route to jog has many curves,chances of nausea are high,so prepare accordingly)
PIC 1:Main view point
PIC 2:A close view situated opp to main view(4kms from main view point).

You can find Ksrtc Buses just outside the main exit, these buses halt for 5 minutes for train passengers, takes about 45 minutes including a 10 minutes tea break. no need to walk 400 meters, all buses pass Jog falls main gate, there are many sharing mini buses too

When you reach Jog falls main gate, you should check with security guards info about return transport, that's what we did.

Good dinner is available on board an authorised vendor will come and take orders and supply you with food according to the vendor u get chappati kurma,pulao/biryani,idli vada is available.If u want to have breakfast at Mangalore Central it is a request do not buy food from vendors as they provide spoiled food.Mostly the train arrives on platform 3 or platform 2.Just climb the overhead bridge go to platform 1 and there will be an IRCTC hotel where u get superb Poori Sagu and good Masala Dosa. If u want lunch at Karwar veg and non veg meals are available even delicious fish is available.
