    I arrived in Rishikesh very early in the morning and they let me sleep in the common room, which was large and welcoming. We spent the day of Xmas eve giving gifts to students in a rural school, which was an amazing experience. The staff was indelibly nice and helpful. I had a problem with a bus reservation and they helped me catch another one (more convenient) and helped me to get a refund. If I ever come back, Blue Jay will be my only choice!!

    Inspiring! During the past 2 months, I have been staying here and above all they offer, the staff is the real gem. Suhel is one of the most amazing people that I ever had the pleasure of meeting. He plays guitar, djembe, and his talent for design is very obvious. Saba has an amazing voice and using guitar is the best way to accompany it. Her whole being is lightened up when she is smiling. Rahul has the most bright personality ever. With all of them, I had meaningful conversations & great time!
