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 have converted a 300 year old Haveli (Heritage Home) into a backpacker's hostel.

Our rooftop has the best view of the Pichola Lake and the lush green hills surrounding it. We guarantee you that you will be spending most of your time here gazing at the Lake Palace. Also you can witness the Monsoon Palace as if it is floating in the clouds. As the sun goes down, that is when you will see the magic happen as the entire city lights up.

Everything you need is just around the corner. Once you are out of the hostel doors you will be in the narrow lanes of the old city taking you back in time. We have designed each floor keeping in mind the traveller's need and how to make them comfortable while they are with us.

    Best hostel ever! Perfect location. owners Ashish and Bhushan are totally cool and kind and helpful. This hostel has 2 women working here (super rare for india), which made me feel much more comfy. The atmosphere is LIT!!! We had a big party one night and danced all night on the roof overlooking the incredible view. The beds are super comfy. The food is good. Seriously just a fantastic experience start to finish, I was sad to leave.

    Great place to stay with friendly atmosphere. The rooftop has an amazing view on the lake and is the perfect place to chill out at the evening. Ashish, the owner will treat you as a friend visiting him in his own house. Would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for an easy going place where you can meet up with other people! Plus: you can get a good variety of snacks and food in case you don't feel like leaving the hostel

    The hostel asked for making the outstanding payment right on the day of the booking and said that if it is not done till 3 days before the stay the booking stands cancelled. That was very weird and inconvenient.
