Property Description

Welcome to Hostel Mantra, a community of travellers, explorers and wanderers. We at Hostel Mantra believe that travel is not just limited to sightseeing and ticking destinations off your list.

We are located in the biggest suburban district of Mumbai - Andheri. Tucked away in a calm and peaceful neighbourhood, this green oasis is perfect place to relax and take some time out after surviving the craziness of this city. And if you still have some energy left, you can always head to the nearby bars, pubs or grab a bite at some really good restaurants. Western part of Andheri is very famous among the locals for its nightlife, and we want you to party like a local, with the locals.

We have great connectivity to the nearest train station with a bus service right from our doorstep or you can just head to the nearest metro station which is simply 10 mins away. Feeling adventurous? Well, just hop inside a rickshaw and you will go zipping through the traffic in no time.

We have an indoor and an outdoor common area, a rooftop chill zone, mixed dorms, female dorm, private rooms and a coconut tree in our backyard. All our dorms and private rooms have en-suite baths. You can use the kitchen to cook a meal. A simple breakfast is served to get your day started.

We want to meet friendly and interesting people. Hostel Mantra is not a commercial enterprise. It is a community with heart and a chance to experience the real West-Mumbai.

If you are coming from International or Domestic Airport the easiest way is to take a 30 minute cab ride directly to our hostel.

If you wish to take the metro then you can walk 15 minutes from the International Airport to 'Airport Road' Metro Station and take metro to 'Versova' Metro Station. From there you can take a rickshaw which will take just 20 Rupees to get to our hostel.

    This hostel has a whole new level of comfort and the staff here is spectacular, their pretty strict with the rules and not flexible, but that doesn't stop them from being one of the good go to hostels in Mumbai. Cleanliness and warmth at parr excellence. The staff pretty much helps you with everything , I loved my experience in this property and after staying around different hostels in Mumbai I feel this is one of the most spacious and breathable hostels with a magnificent aura...Best-in-class

    This place was A-mazing! After spending a few days in touristy Colaba, I wanted to experience a different side to the big city and hostel mantra gave me that. Wish I could have spent my whole trip in Mumbai here! Dorms were big, kept clean and had air con. Bhushan (the owner) gave us from really good recommendations for things to do and even took us out for some excellent Pani Puri! The staff were super friendly and even offered to make us tea whilst we were relaxing in the lounge area!

    The staff sort everything out for my late arriving. I really appreciate that. The room was very clean, the shower is OK. The air conditioning was working properly. I didn´'t have breakfast because I was jet lagged and I couldn't wake up. The staff are gentle, friendly, supportive.

    Co-operative staff. They have not placed any boards so it was a bit hard to find the place if you are coming from local Rickshaw. Place was almost empty as I was staying in summer in Mumbai. Good facilities.

    The staff were helpful and gave us information to make plans for Mumbai. But this hostel is also far away from the south where most major attractions are. So it does give you a good opportunity to use the trains and public transport if you want to experience a more suburban and locals perspective. But if you want to be close to everything it's not ideal. Not ideal for solo travellers as it wasn't very busy. But the staff really are lovely and i would go back and reccomend it for that reason.
