    The first best thing about this hostel is location. It is isolate and away from the crowd. Best view of kodaikanal hills. Food is not regularly available but when it does it's tasty. Staff are friendly too. Must stay here if you visit kodaikanal.

    The view is beyond words. The hosts, the staff, the kitchen, the dorm, everything's perfect. Bus station, lake, waterfalls, everything is just short walks away which is a big plus.

    The view from the location is breathtaking. The view alone makes the hostel stay worth it. The dorm rooms are okay but the single rooms are really nice. Hot water is available only in the mornings FYI. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The food at the hostel is also tasty and fresh. There was a dog and her small puppy which we had a lot of fun playing with. The hostel location is about 3 km from the city, which is a 15 min walk. I would highly recommend booking this place for Kodai

    If you want the most amazing view of your life, you have to stay here. You may come to Kodaikanal for the hikes, but there is no need. The view you wake up to is the best you'll ever get. However; the beds are not made for anyone over 5'8, and it gets pretty cold at night as well. It's all worth it though. The staff is super helpfull, and the location is really good as well. Would 100% come back even though my feet would be half way out of the bed.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location. Probably one of the most scenic locations in the whole of kodaikanal. The manager was very warm and was available to help at all times. The beds are a little small so if you're tall its gonna be a problem fitting yourself in the bed. Hot water is available from the kitchen. they have a decent menu. got some nice stickers and t shirt to buy at the reception. Just stay for the view :)

    Very Good

    A hostel with very basic facilities: no showers (only bucket), no lockers, no tp pretty much just a bed and that's it. The staff was ok, but distant, not really interacting with the guests. Zero atmosphere, the hostel is mostly empty anyway most of the time. The view from the hostel is absolutely amazing though, best out of every hostel I've ever stayed in. The location is also very nice, 15 minutes form downtown and very quiet so perfect for relaxing.
