Property Description

Hideout is a family run, only Backpackers hostel located in the heart of Darjeeling. It is more of a place to chill with superb views of the mighty Kanchenjunga and sunset through the Singalila range. It is preferred by solo travellers who look to spend quiet and relaxing time at Darjeeling. It is easy to access most of the nearby sightseeing areas by foot.
We have all the basic needs covered from free Wi-Fi to hot shower. We’ve got a travel café in the rooftop with a common area where most of our guests like to hang out. There is a book exchange facility. Information about all sightseeing places, best restaurants, local villages and recommendations are given by the hosts.
It is not a party hostel (No alcohol allowed on property premises).
No Parking for Motorbikes and cars.
We provide Mtb rentals, Trekking, Hiking, Bike rentals, paid laundry service and Local guides.
Located very close to the tourist attraction centre in Darjeeling i.e., The Mall (Chowrasta), where vehicles are restricted so it is a good hike to get to the hostel.

    Loved my time at Hideout. It's the only hostel in town so you're bound to meet other backpackers, particularly during trekking season. Amazing views of the mountains from the hostel & the location is convenient as it's very close to Sonam's Kitchen & Gatty's Cafe where I spent most of my time eating/drinking in Darjeeling. The hostel also helps out with tours but I had already booked my trek with Adventures Unlimited who were amazing! But I would definitely recommend this hostel for travellers.

    The staff at Hideout were extremely kind & helpful. The view on a good day is magnificent. And we saw Kanchenjunga early one morning. There is little choice in town so it fills up fast. Location is great, once you find it. Very comfortable & hospitable.

    It's definitely a hike up the hill and difficult to find if first time staying here! But once I arrived, the staff was great, quick checkin, and quiet. Luckily when I arrived it was golden hour and sky was clear (which normally isn't), but I was able to see Mt Kanchenjunga. I finally relaxed, had cup of milk tea on terrace, enjoyed the view. At the end it was worth the view. Improvements needed: update bathroom in the mixed dorm I stayed in and need better light in the pathway up to the gate.

    Renovation in-progress. Place is aptly named 'Hideout' since it's hard to find. Staff once they warm up to you are friendly. Good option to crash for a night.
