    This place is wonderful. They have opened a wonderful facility in Rishikesh. Hostels in India are rarely this good. Swimming pool is an added advantage. Bozo and rest of the staff are trying their best to give you best experience. Once they get slightly older and known, this place will surely stay packed. Their canteen serves some good food. Will definitely stay with them again.

    Panda is a bit more expensive for the area but a really new and high end hostel. It was immaculately clean, the dorms were super modern with nice bathrooms, warm comforters and fluffy pillows. The downstairs lobby has a little cafe with machine pressed coffee and there's also a pool (closed bc of covid) and yoga shala. The staff was welcoming & professional. It is overly white like a hospital so it can be a bit sterile. The restaurant is also a bit pricey. The location isn't near the river

    Let me first tell you that it is not at all a hostel. It is just a place to stay for backpackers and it sucks because the hot water only runs till 11pm as if we are stuck is the 1960s. The manager Deepak is an ass****, we where late by 30mins to check out and he wanted to charge us 500 bucks extra for being late. We denied to pay and he got too rude and started abusing. Well if you can abuse your guests then for sure you don’t deserve to run a business at all. I would rate it zero(shunya) for De
