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.

    So many great things about this histel. 1st, the location here is hard to beat. It sits on a hilltop overlooking Darjeeling w gorgeous views. The plaza w multiple shops, restaurants & street vendors are minutes walk away. There's a great viewpoint close to the plaza and endless things to do and see so near the hostel. 2nd, the atmosphere is low key and still sociable. Next, the staff is super helpful & always available. They helped us book our share taxi, suggested places to go & things to do.

    They're the only proper hostel in town but they don't cut any corners. Finding the place for the first time can be a little difficult but once you get there, the place is very nice with decent rooms, helpful staff and an epic view located just a short walk away from the mall road.

    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.

    I was apprehensive when I booked the place as the weather conditions of Darjeeling was not favourable and this being the only hostel, I was not sure if it would turn out great. On arrival at Chowk Bazaar, it took me 12 mins from Mall Road using maps. On arrival, the check-in process was smooth and I was guided to my bed. Each room has 4 beds all neatly spread with clean white linen. The cafe upstairs have tea & eating arrangements. The hosts are very friendly. The washroom can be done better.

    Very Good

    Ideal location - peaceful and secluded but also close to the town centre. The staff were helpful when asked and the room (private double with en suite) was clean, roomy and pleasant. Snack food and drinks were tasty, cheap and available all day. We came out of season (August) during the monsoon and were a bit cold in the room and the hot water (in request) rarely lasted longer than five minutes. Doubt that would be a problem at other times or year though
