    Booked for two days and stayed for two weeks, very peaceful, so this hostel stands out of other hostels because of it's location, pretty close to market and cafes.

    Super cute and laid back. Arjun was an extremely kind host. Even before we reached that hostel, he reached out to us and let us know that we can call him to ask directions or for any other help. Coming to the hostel, its tucked away from the crowded main market but in a central location from where you can access almost all the cafes, shops and supermarket. One of my best hostel experience ❤ ❤ ❤

    Property owner Arjun was present to receive us, we had no trouble finding the place, it's a bit inside but locals were very helpful. We had awesome time there though we stayed for 1 night and met some cool people - Roberto from Spain - amazing fellow. A lot of good food options are available around - lotus dhaba is at walking distance, hostel is located near Bhagsu Temple ( shortcut route ) Breakfast at hostel was good - bread butter jam and tea along eggs. Rooms and toilets were clean.

    We had a pleasant short stay at La Vaca. My friends and I reached late, but Arjun (the owner) was very supportive and provided us the right guidance to get to our rooms. The hostel is a bit difficult to locate, but the team at La Vaca helped us well. The facilities, washrooms and beds were fine, and we could sleep well. Breakfast was ok. Overal, a fine hostel.

    Amazing room, one of the best hostel doubles we’ve ever stayed in and for the price it’s definitely an absolute winner. The shower head in our room came off but it was powerful and hot water was reliablable. Great views from the balcony over the mountains. Downside was how loud it gets at night - each night until gone 2am - guests shouting, playing music - the common area is outside the balconies and the walls and windows are really thin. Bring earplugs if you like sleep!

    La Vaca is in a great location for Bhagsu and Upper Dharamkot. The rooms are clean and cosy, as well as reasonably priced with individual lockers. There are plenty of good restaurants within a 5 min walk as well as a drop in yoga studio and a cooking class.

    Average. Staff in the kitchen takes really long to serve and portion sizes are also very less compared to food served at other restaurants. The food taste is also average. The 4 bed dorm rooms have seepage. Cleanliness is average too. Drains have hair and other dirt stuck in the mesh.

    I had very average experience with my stay here , property is very cheap though for those who literally want to work from mountains, wifi speed is good enough. Views from the room is stunning. Coming to negatives, Washroom facility were pathetic , shower broke down, there was no hand wash, toilet seat was not comfortable either. They have wooden bed which makes a lot of noise if you move a bit or climb up on the bed. Hope they work on these points.
