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.

    Hostel Mantra has a wonderful vibe and the entire team of the hostel was very hospitable. Our rooms had direct view of Lake Pichola which was really nice. The rooftop cafe of the hostel serves impressive meals. We were a group of 5 girls and had the best time!

    This was my first hostel stay and the stay at Mantra definitely exceeded all expectations I had. The view from the rooftop is the best that you could get for the price you pay. The folks at Mantra were there to promptly take care of any issues. The food at the hostel cafe very well compares to the cafes nearby so even if you don’t want to step out, there is no issues with food. But the best part of the stay was interacting with Ashish and the rest of the crew. The vibe set by them made the trip

    I stayed at Hostel Mantra for 5 days, and had the best time I have ever had at a hostel. The location is ideal, with a splendid view of the lake from the rooftop cafe, and walkable from most attractions and restaurants in the old city area. The cafe serves amazing food (the lasagna, cold coffee and poha are must try!), and the rooms are clean, but the best part of our stay was the vibe which we got from the people at the hostel. Make sure you spend time talking to Ashish about his travels!

    The best part about this hostel is the VIEW!! You won’t get a better view in any hostel in Udaipur! The rooms are clean and food is good! Ashish and everyone who works here are friendly and welcoming, definitely a great host who see to it that you have a great time in their hostel. Overall a good vibe!

    I stayed at Hostel Mantra for a week, no, let me correct that, I 'lived' at Hostel Mantra for a week, and it felt like I have been living there for much longer! It's all thanks to the great friends I made here including the people who manage and run this property. Perfect for Digital Nomads, very accessible to some great cafes, shops and tourists spots. If you want to get a local feel of Udaipur this is the place you wanna be at. Looking forward to coming back and having fun times here again!

    Very Good

    22 Nov 2021
    Good location (like other hostels around) and clean room, but not customer-focused at all. We asked if we could take a quick shower with my gf in any available room/dorm before our evening bus (after our checkout), but we were denied even after offering money. In the end hostel across the street offered us free shower even though we did not stay at their place... We were told that no room was available for shower, which was a lie because we could see other rooms available that day on the website
