    I chose Hostale because it is located so close to Assi Ghat, but apart from having excellent Location the atmosphere of inside hostel is amazing. The staffs are friendly and rooms very clean. Will recommend to all travellers.

    Lovely hostel with very friendly staff. Would highly recommend the morning boat ride organised by the hostel, was a lot cheaper than many others you found and took you not just on the Ganges but to a mosque and a water temple. Atmosphere wasn't great but I think that was due to the time of year and I think it would be much better in peak tourist season

    My stay at Hostale was short but quite fun. I made 3 amazing friends, 2 from India & 1 from the USA. I learnt to play 3 new traveling card games,shared some cool & funny stories & enjoyed my stay. There were only 5 people in the hostel apart from the staff so it was quiet, but the location is nice & buzzing. My suggestion: the staff should learn a bit more about the city, it'll be a big help. Be a bit more spontaneous. I recommend Hostale to anyone & everyone. Cheers!

    Best hostale in town! The staff were wonderful! Unlike the other hostels I went to here... Rooms were good, but hot.. It's like India don't know how to make a good hostel Maybe they haven't had enough practice? They should go to Vietnam! The staff also didn't pressure me into telling them when my train was.. I left one hostel because the guy wouldn't quit asking.. I didn't have a stupid train yet.. I'll stay how long I wish, then I'll leave! I don't need to tell them anything about how I leave!!

    Very Good

    Good stay at the hostale => good location, clean and bed comfortable. Points that can be improve : There is only 2 shower and 2 toilets for 3 room ( and 1 sink) . Hot shower not always working, WiFi not always working. The staff is ok. There is one guy really nice but the others don’t smile, and a guy don’t event answer when you say hello. Good pint for the free breakfast and the room are really cheap. So it’s still a good value for money. If you are backpacker and don’t want to spend a lot, go

    It’s a very cheap hostel so I shouldn’t really complain. The man on the front desk was nice and helpful. The hostel itself was very basic.

    The hostel was pretty average. The pricing was quite low, but other hostels have much better facilities in similar price. I believe that the hostale staff can put some effort in not only improving the facilities but also in interaction with guests.

    Both showers were not working, continuous smell of sewage around during our stay,bins not emptied. No security what so ever the door was wide open 24/7 The man who works downstairs was not eager at all to help with any situation he was always high and in regards to further travels didn't want to help and lacked information. Unfortunately this was the worst hostel we have stayed in. And the music pumping upstairs was so loud making it hard to sleep and that was a consistant thing aswell.
