Property Description

We all have experienced our biggest challenge during this pandemic and since then we have been doing our best to make this place safe for everyone. Being backpackers, we believe that one cannot stop a traveller from travelling. So, we are ready, when you are ready.

We believe travel is not going to be the same. We have to adapt to the new normal. We have always given hygiene and cleanliness a high priority. We have further extended our cleaning process by following the safety guidelines for Covid-19 to make sure our hostel is a safe environment for everyone. With your help and our commitment, we can bring back the joy of the hostel experience, which we all love.

Following are some of the safety measures, which we have taken:

1. Regular temperature checks and protective gear for staff.
2. Well-informed staff that know what protocols to follow in case a guest shows any symptoms.
3. Sanitizing the rooms, bunk beds, washrooms and all touch points in common areas periodically.
4. Online check-in and pre-payments.
5. Sanitization & temperature checks during check-ins
6. Maintaining social distancing and respecting other’s space.
7. Make your own bed. With little effort, you can be sure that you have clean and fresh linen.
8. Following the safety guidelines issued by WHO and Government.

---------------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. 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. View House Rules

    IT IS LIKE A FAMILY HERE.. If you are a tourist and you are in Mumbai to see the tourist places this probably might not be the best place for you. But if you like exploring more, you will love this place. It is a hostel so it does the job of being one. I do not have high expectations when i am booking hostels in India but this one i really liked. Everyone here was friendly and helpful. Nice common areas to relax, clean bathroom, good beds. I could also cook, and the kitchen is well equipped.

    It was a very chilled and relax stay. Was in Mumbai to meet couple of friends so was hardly at the hostel. But the morning breakfast is good & healthy food which i personally liked. The rooftop is pretty chilled out and beds are comfortable. Did not like the idea of removing the shoes at the door but i can imagine how difficult it could get to keep the place clean otherwise plus whenever i have stayed in hostels i have hated the shoe smell in the dorms. Could do with shoe rack outside dorms.

    I had a great time staying here. Clean dorms, good facilities and a nice cozy rooftop cafe. The people here are so sweet and they will help you out with whatever they need. Visited the local market nearby and tried the local street food suggested by the staff. Must try the small round piris with tangy water. It was yumm.. Thank you guys.. :)

    The staff was more than welcoming. Pankaj, Deva & Shehzad made the stay friendly. There are some changes that need to be looked upon by the management:- 1) Rooftop closes by 11pm, which is quite early. 2) No parties or celebrations take place which is quite unlike the hostel culture. Christmas Day went by just like that. 3) After 6 days of initial booking, I extended for another 6 days, but after 9th day when I wanted to cancel, the management to refund even though it was an offline bookin

    Very Good

    We booked this hostel as it was cheap and close to the airport. It is very basic and needs a lot of TLC. The room we stayed in was damp and had mould all over the walls and roof. It did the job the staff were really nice, they let us check out an hour later 4 free+ the WiFi was good. 20 minute walk to the metro and about an hours drive to the airport. You can get an Uber for under 400rps to the airport which is easy which I would advise rather than use the over priced options the hostel offers.

    A nice hostel in a great location, however the private room we stayed in looked like it needed more maintenance.

    A bit out of the way, but a relaxed setting. Not much in the way of a communal area or buzz. But it's a quieter place which was fine for me. Lovely dog.
