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.

Experience the culture, art and the heritage way of living with us. View House Rules

    I stayed at the property for 3 nights and only had the best of time. The property is centrally located with many landmarks at walking distance. The property is clean and well maintained. A special shout out to the owner, who himself dropped me to the bus stand when night curfew was announced and I was unable to find a mode of transport. Would definitely be coming back

    I loved my stay at Hostel Mantra so much! The staff is lovely and really helpful. The hostel is perfect- really clean, in a great location, and filled with great people (even during COVID). The best part is the view from the cafe on the rooftop and the food they offer. The lasagna is to die for & the best I've ever had in my life (better than the ones I had in Italy). Book without hesitation- this is definitely the place to stay in Udaipur for a guaranteed good time. I can't wait to come back!

    Just Amazing! Staff is really nice and helpful. Ashish is an amazing host. The sunset view from the rooftop is breathtaking. Imroz, the guy who runs the kitchen, is an excellent chef. Order anything for the menu, you are gonna love it. They have wifi routers on all floors and on the rooftop cafe which makes the place perfect for hippies roaming around with work laptops 😊

    The best hostel I have ever experienced. The unmatachable evening vibes and the mindblowing view was the game. The aesthetics of the hostel proved to be a good background for an Instaworthy click. The Hostel also has a cafe which serves good food.

    Had the best hostel experience at Mantra. Checks all the boxes; Excellent location near to all the major attractions, an awesome rooftop cafe with an uninterrupted view of the beautiful lake Pichola, super clean rooms and amazing staff. Spent 5 days there and it really felt like a new home. Ashish and the team are always ready to help with anything. The hostel vibe and the cafe food is unmatched and certainly the best the in Udaipur. Thanks.. Hoping to revisit soon!! - Saurav and Kanav

    I enjoyed my stay in Mantra. The location is very good with good views of Pichola. The rooftop view from fifth floor of Pichola lake is super awesome. I stayed in dorm and it was good - the bed was neat and tidy with light and charging socket along with a locker in bottom. The washroom was clean too. They have a cafe also which is good. There was a good vibe considering covid. Just wished the wifi to be a bit faster. Ashish and his team is really good. He knows all about city and nearby.
