Property Description

Electric Cats Hostel Munnar is located 15KM from the busy town centre of Munnar and offers clean and safe accommodation in private rooms and mixed or female-only dorms. Please note that our hostel is located in a forested area and the last 200 metres is on a dirt road. If you wish to stay near town or if your vehicle has low ground clearance, we do not recommend you book with us.

We offer all modern amenities like WiFi in common areas, a fully equipped kitchen, book exchange, free drinking water, basic power back up, paid laundry facilities and bicycle, fishing pole and hiking pole hire. All rooms and dorms have en suite bathrooms with western toilets and hot or cold showers. In addition to all this, each dorm bed is equipped with a reading light and a power socket, clean linen, lockers and duvets when the mercury dips.

Our hostel has loads of open spaces and greenery around it and has a fantastic view of two hills on clear days. The common area in the front is a great place to socialize, or enjoy a cup of coffee as you work on your laptop. The in-house cats will also keep you entertained if socializing is not your thing. As the hostel is located on a 1.5 acre property there's loads of nooks to practice yoga and meditation, grab a few beers under the trees, barbecue or to just read a book on a hammock.

The nearest town, which is Anachal is 2KM away and is easily accessible by a Rs50/- tuk tuk ride. (There is an hourly bus service too) We are also located just 5 min walk away from the Sengulam Reservoir, which is a beautiful place to go kayaking. In addition to this, you can visit tea plantations, spice gardens, waterfalls, viewpoints, go on treks and bike tours as well as attend Kathak and Kalari performances. Our staff is also quite familiar with area and will be able to help you with things to do in and around Munnar, ticket booking and arranging reasonably-priced transport and trek guides.

    In our 8 weeks of travelling India, this was by far the BEST hostel we stayed at - the only hostel worthy of a 10/10. Stan is, firstly, the kindest and most friendly man you’ll ever meet, and will go to great lengths to make you feel welcome and comfortable, and will organise anything for you. The hostel has a great laid back atmosphere and the evening meals are awesome - by the end of your stay you will be great friends with everyone. 10/10 location for relaxing in nature, a must visit!

    Had a great 3 night stay at Electric Cats. The atmosphere is great and has a good common area to meet and chat with fellow travellers. Electric Cats is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in, if not the best. The free breakfast is great and filling and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Also, it is great value for money, thankyou very much and I’ll see you again if I come back to Munnar!

    This is one of the best hostels I stayed in during my India trip so far! The manager, Sumit, was so incredibly helpful and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was amazing. The atmosphere was fantastic and I met so many friends from all over. The location is far enough away from the cities to enjoy the peace and quiet, but close enough to easily get everywhere. The evening family meals were also great and cheap! Would 100% recommend!

    A new hostel situated just out of the town of Anachal! The owner Stan is wonderful and was so helpful with any questions or advice on where to go ! There are many backpackers that stay in this hostel which means you can all adventure together to different activities around Probably about 20minute drive from munnar tea plantations but very easy to get there and back

    Couldn't wish for a better hostel, with many guests extending stays and calling it their favourite hostel in India whilst we were there it is clear that it was not just us who felt this way
