    Love this place! I ended up staying for weeks because the atmosphere was so comfortable. The staff is A1, super welcoming for everyone and the hostel definitely lives up to its name of "Live Free". People are free to socialize or do their own thing. There's a reason why I saw so many familiar faces day after day staying there. Location is convenient to catch a tuk tuk to Rishikesh city for ATM withdrawals but also close enough to the action. Thanks for taking care of me.

    I stayed here on last day of my trip and extended my stay. Wall paintings and cafeteria is awesome. I met new people and solo travellers and now we are friends. I also met negative minded people on the last day of my stay. But it's ok such people are everywhere we can ignore them. I also met some people who have habit to complaint about noise such people kills the fun of hostel and they should book hotel rather than hostel. Overall I had a wonderful experience and would love to check-in again :)

    Awesome location! Walking distance to all the good stuff! Big hostel with lots of facilities, really cool Atmosphere. Cafe open till 10:30! Easy to meet people. Bathroom was clean but ran out of water completely after a couple minutes in the shower. Staff were super chilled out. This hostel has a good reputation in rishikesh! Would stay again if I ever come back
