There is a FreshUp Lounge present at the station premises near FOB at the end of PF 1, Malakpet side. It consists of a Chaise Lounge with 4 beds, Bunker Beds, and Double Room. The pricing is given in the image. The inside images are also attached. The bed is Chaise Lounge bed. I think it is pretty decent, has wifi and gives towel and hot water to fresh up, which is a paid option in IRCTC Lounge in BZA. I would give a solid 4/5 and the crew are helpful.

While passing this station, do keep watch over your belongings, as area next to tracks near railway station is not safe.
Possibility of cellphone/chain snatching, as train literally crawls through this whole section. Many people sit, gamble & drink right over the vacant railway tracks, so keep vigil.

If your train is departing/arriving from/at PF6 and your coach is far away use cab way where you can park your car in front of coach.
If your train is not departing from PF6 and your coach is far away then also you can make entry from PF6 and board the escalator which is situated near Kanpur station end.
