    Loved the stay! Booked a Dorm with them which was super cosy and comfortable. The Bathrooms were clean. Anshul, the caretaker goes till lenghts to make you feel at home. The movie nights and playing card games in the common area are fun! Food is delicious! Would definitely come back again! Highly recommended :)

    Away from road side , makes your stay comfortable and peaceful. Anshul and his team makes sure that everything is available on spot..big round of applause for them 👏👏. Cheese omelet is must when you visit. Bonfire at night on rooftop makes things super cool and when you realise river is flowing next to your hostel it's just like sone pe suhaga.....✌️✌️✌️

    Pillow covers were dirty, located inside a bye-lane, not accessible to cars, no cupboard in private rooms Overall not a good place to stay, unless one could be contended to stay right in the middle of the Old Manali market

    At best it’s below par & hygiene was a major concern as sheets were not changed and the toilet cleanliness were an issue. Totally understandable as only 1 man was running the show & the place being understaffed, would expect website to Atleast have a team in place who conduct periodic checks.

    One of the worst stays. The host was trying to become very frank and got started with commenting with personal remarks when he was drunk at night. Not much of a good ambience overall. Didn't get any good crowd either. Overall quite a big disappointment, especially when you have been travelling for the past 10-12 hours to reach Manali and you get to this place , it is a bummer!
