Property Description

We, at Blue Jay Hostel, Rishikesh, are constantly doing our best to deliver the best experience to each patron.
We have named our establishment keeping in mind the traveler’s spirit. To those of you who are unaware, the Indian Blue Jay is a migratory bird found in Rishikesh.
Only a couple of minutes’ walk from the famous Laxman Jhula, the location is within walking distance from just about every significant tourist spot within Rishikesh. Not only is the location awesome, the newly built breath-taking building is one of the strongest civil structures in the town. So no matter what the weather conditions are, within the Blue Jay, your safety is guaranteed.
Though Blue Jay is a relatively new name (we commenced services in June 2018), the operations are handled by a team which has been in this business for the past five years. Following the footsteps of the best hostel chains in Europe, our vision is to make a traveler’s life easy. Backpackers deserve all the comfort and ease in the world and that is exactly what we specialize in. We provide you a space to relax and connect with new friends. It is a one stop destination to make the most out of your stay in Rishikesh. When you hear the word hostel, you tend to let go of the luxuries a hotel provides but this budget hostel is a catch for the facilities it offers. Our team strives to make your stay memorable by helping you plan your itinerary and organizing activities like sun rise treks, adventure sports, Bollywood dance, evening Aarti , city tours, yoga sessions on the terrace etc.
Whether you just stop in Rishikesh for a couple of days, or you're planning an extended sightseeing and yoga detox trip, Blue Jay is the place to be. We have listed our facilities below for your convenience.

●A spacious yet cozy common area where you are welcome to choose your own seating arrangement- lie down if you feel like it and get lost in the perpetual flow of water in the adjoining fountain wall or you could spend some time reading.
●The common area is armed with multiple amenities such as an LCD screen for a movie night, speakers for a party night, a small library section, a washroom and a gaming area with various indoor games to spend some great time with your new friends on a rainy day.
●We also have cozy hangout lobbies on each floor with huge glass walls showing the beautiful view outside. There's also a common washroom on each floor, just in case.
●All private rooms come with huge comfy beds, shower, toilet facilities, toiletries, a huge mirror, a table and a closet for your belongings. The deluxe rooms have a balcony as well.
●The dorm rooms have comfortable beds with lights, fans and curtains for each bed. There are lockers (with USB charging points) for your belongings and huge glass windows to Rishikesh’s trademark view
●You'll get Wi-Fi as well as all essential information about the goings-on in town.
●The hostel is equipped with a proper fire fighting system in place and pays top most attention to the safety of the guests.

General Directives and Policies for the patrons of Blue Jay Hostel

We cater to individuals only above the age of 18.

Cancellation policy: 48h before arrival.
Check in between 1 PM and midnight.

We request all patrons to not litter so as to maintain cleanliness in and around their vicinity as a mark of courtesy towards other guests.
We would consider ourselves to be India’s first premium hostel. Not that we mean to brag, however, our experience in the hospitality industry has enabled us to cover minute details to ensure your comfort and convenience.
For instance, you won’t find any other hostel in India, apart from the Blue Jay, which offers its patrons the convenience of a USB charger in the dorm bed locker which permits you to put your device on charging mode without any concerns. Apart from that, both bunk beds in the dormitory are designed in an impeccable manner to ensure that neither person hits their head against the ceiling or the base of the upper bunk. Such little things are not so little; we know what our clients need and we have done everything accordingly.
Besides, it is not bragging if we can back it up, right? We would love it if you come pay us a visit the next time you are in or around Rishikesh to know whether Blue Jay is legit or just simply too good to be true. View House Rules

    Awesome hostel, super clean and the air con was a life saver! Staff were super helpful and friendly! Only down side was the morning yoga on the rooftop - not my favourite, you could feel the teacher really didn’t care or want to be there. But all good, plenty of amazing yoga places in Rishi. Thanks guys, loved the hostel!

    Honestly one of the fanciest hostels I’ve been to in the world. So clean. Beds have privacy curtains, usb chargers, storage drawers have built in lights, rooms have touch card access. Staff were all amazing. Common room is cool and has a shower. Some of the dorm beds have individual fans that some people leave running all night so bring earplugs. Highly recommend.

    Staff were so friendly and would go out of their way to help!! The common room was great. The free yoga was not the best as the teacher want very engaged. At times the bathroom/toilets could get a little messy- but that was down to the people staying there. The family dinner provided was delicious. Overall one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in my travels

    One of the most ultra modern well built hostels I've come across ever. Beds, dorm rooms, bathrooms, AC, common room, etc. were all comfy and fine. There is not much to complain about, except kitchen use is NOT allowed. If they can keep their dorm prices down, other hostels might have to up their game or perish!
