Property Description

The hindi (farsi) word ‘Karwaan’ fondly used to mean ‘group of travellers’, inspired the idea of ‘KarwaanLife’.
‘Namaste by KarwaanLife’ is a concept space designed for backpacking travelers of diverse backgrounds to synergise.

Nestled in a hilltop in Tapovan, walking distance away from the Lakshman Jhula, ‘Namaste by KarwaanLife’ offers a magnificent view of the Himalayas and attempts to bolster the idea of considering a travel stay not as a ‘halt’ but creation of lifetime of memories

Sit cozily or play games in our carefully crafted common room or the breezy terrace and soak yourself in travelogues, stories of laughter, intrigue and adventure as travellers you have never known seem like camaraderie.

Come with stories- a bag full, enjoy the serenity of the holy Ganges , soak in the Himalayan Sun, and drench in the warmth that Team KarwaanLife has to offer.

    Very pleasant experience staying here. It’s located up a pretty steep incline of a road and I enjoyed the effort it took to walk up it after exploring everyday. Angela is an absolute saint and I cannot thank her enough for all of the help she gave me, even after I left the hostel! She’s a very hard worker and was always making sure everyone had everything they needed. It was a very cool, chill vibe here.

    Came across this hostel through a friend’s reference. Since they are relatively new so I didn’t have a lot of expectations from the place but ended up having a really good time. The staff is really friendly and washrooms are clean unlike a lot of hostels who don’t care about hygiene. Also, the bunk beds are quite spacious. The features about the hostel that stand out are its calm and serene location, the open terrace and the colorful common room. The cherry on the top was the music and bonfire..

    The hostel is located on an uphill. So commuting can be a task, especially with luggage. Autos will not go up till there. So if you are cool with the climb, it has a beautiful view from the open terrace-a small patch of meadow and the mountains in the distance. The dorm room doesn’t have natural light and air. The bathroom is small and not stain-free. There’s frequent power cut nowadays. But there was no backup. Only 1 emergency light in the room. Restaurant food is good. Thick & tasty parathas
