    Staff is friendly and helpful - Nishant takes good care of you with ease, never rushing and always has the answers. Location is great - close enough to everything but still quaint. The balconies offer great views of a quiet valley and much needed sun. Delightful carrot cake (came for the carrot cake, was not disappointed). Atmosphere is chill and relaxed, social but not a party hostel. There's a good sized open common area for hanging out and food. Clean and warm beds!

    Great stay, very clean, comfortable room. The location was perfect, not too far from the center, although it wasn’t easy to find when we first arrived. Loved the hairdryer in the room for the cold days.

    AltLife is the best hostel I’ve experienced in India. It has multiple balconies and terraces to enjoy a beautiful view. The lounge is spacious, clean, comfortable, with large panoramic windows. They play low volume ambient music and serve great food. There’s a lending library from which I got to enjoy a good novel. The manager Vinod is very professional, friendly, and helpful. The staff is the same. The beds are very comfortable and clean. The other guests were thoughtful. Thank you, AltLife!!!

    My stay at alt life was really good. I enjoyed meeting people from different places and the food was great too. Something that could have been better was that the food was a bit expensive and served very late. But overall I loved it. The food was very tasty.

    Good hostel. Located in Dharamkot it´ s a bit far from most sights, but comparatively easy to reach. The staff is friendly and helpful and the hostel has quite a comfy, chill atmosphere. Things are clean, functioning and pretty secure. You got a good working space with free filtered water and quite stable Wifi. After all, a good experience and recommendable if you come to the area.

    The hostel is clean and tidy. Bathrooms are clean and everything is on point. The food could be done better and it is a little over priced. The staff is helpful and answered all our questions. A potential downpoint to consider when booking here: the place is not central and you have either to hike, either to get a tuktuk/cab to reach the town.

    Very Good

    I have stayed in Dharamkot a few times in the past at several different locations and I have to say this was my least favourite. We knew going in January it would be cold, even in the minuses some days, so we were prepared with winter clothing. We didn't plan however for our room to be unheated, and asking for a heater to cost extra. I have to say the room and hostel doesn't look much like the photos, so we were quite disappointed. The staff however were very kind and helpful, thumbs up for them
