I have seen many people complaining about the LTT station. I personally feel that it is a very good station but only if you know some things about LTT.
1) If you stay far away from LTT, then please book MERU cab or any other cab online. Never take a cab/auto from the cabs/autos waiting at the stations, they demand ridiculously high fares for even the shortest distances. You can altenately go outside the station inside Tilaknagar where you may get a cab/auto which charges normal fare.
2) If your train reaches LTT
at odd time(in case the train is late) stay in the dormitory rather than waiting in the station premises as there are a number of thiefs and they mostly target passengers travelling alone.(Checkout time of dormitory is 8am)
3) Always reach 1hr before the departure of your train to the station especially if you don't know much about the station or if you are first time traveller from this station.
4) The station is well connected to Domestic and International airports and Navi Mumbai by Santacruz-Chembur Link Road(SCLR). Also connected to Navi Mumbai by Harbour Line.
5) Nearest Suburban station is Tilaknagar and if you hav to go to this station please go to the end of the platform it is near from there ascompared to the new building.
6) One good thing is that a lot of people go to Tilaknagar station after the arrival of a train so no problems evan if you arrive at 11pm or 12am.
7) If you have to go to Central suburbs like Vikroli, Bhandup or even Kurla, get down at Thane/Kalyan and get a suburban train from there.

Retiring Rooms are available at Cstm, Mumbai Central, Ltt, Bandra. At Cstm I am not sure where it is, but I have heard that the furniture there is quite old, Ltt & bandra is not suitable for families because of the surrounding area

Take a bus outside church gate station towards CST you will find many buses to that area. Don't take train as it will cost you almost an hour to reach there.

Travelled in this train on 11 september 2016. I would advise fellow travellers, if possible don't book your tickets in SL class of this train, especially single males or males travelling in group. The enunchs/hijras would start bothering you right after train departing from hatia. But situation gets worse after 1am i.e. from baragarh road (i don't remember station name correctly as it was dark outside). 3 enunchs came in sleeper coaches and started slapping the WL passengers sleeping at doors to wake them up and forcibly took money from them. They did the same in whole coach. And every male passenger was forced to give atleast 10 rs. 5 rupee note not accepted. Were they out of their mind or what, extorting money at mid of night? After that from Raygada till renigunta you can expect that at every stop (only scheduled stops, this train hardly has any...
unscheduled stops, in my journey unscheduled stop was only twice for 2 -4 mins before vizianagram and 10 min at vijaywada outer) enunchs will come and demand money and most of them do such " nautanki" that ultimately you pay. So do book your tickets wisely. I don't guarantee that they don't enter AC coaches, only assuming as normally they demand money only in SL coaches.

Bhai, it was one month old journey and network was also not that good in that region. And do I really need to tweet this? Don't railway authorities see that they harrass the passengers and first of all they should be booked for unauthorised travel in trains. I read in news that some months back situation was worse. RPF had arresseted 100s of these transgenders in that area. Can't imagine, if this was situation during my journey then what would have been the situation before the arrests?

Jokes apart, his context was in terms of shatabdi. Agree to your point, Generally Mgs is far bigger station than umb.

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.
