The bus quality was not good. the curtains and the bedspreads were very dirty and there were few cockroaches as well.
The sleeper was cancelled and semi-sleeper was arranged. They gave refund though. The above review is for the semi-sleeper
I was surprise to see the bus on time. The bus quality was decent enough. I was told will reach my destination at 6:00AM in the morning. Surprisingly the bus reached by 4:50AM. Luckily i was awake to get off the bus. Not sure if they would have woken me up. Nevertheless, a very pleasant travel experience :)
Bus meet with accident, they arranged another bus, 3 hour late.
