    Staying at Folklore was one experience that I would like to have more than just once. I planned to stay here for just 2 days but as the days passed, I ended up staying for more than a week. It's located in old Manali,and has views of Jogni Falls and Hampta pass on a clear day. The dorms and the property is clean and the staff is very warm and welcoming. All the guests are made to feel home. They have a small sit out area and play relaxing music with occasional music nights. Had a wonderful time

    The stay at the hostel was amazing. The staff were friendly, helpful, full of local knowledge and go the extra mile to provide you anything. The facilities are cleaned daily and the food was absolutely superb. I took a bed in 4 bed mixed dorm for 3 nights and had no complaints whatsoever.

    The staff is very welcoming. The place is idle for a backpack trip. You will get to meet a lot of people and enjoy some great conversations with them. The folks running the place are prompt, efficient and quite friendly. Do stop by to have their chicken parantha for sure.
