    Peaceful, Perfect place to get out of city noise. Situated at Upper Dharmkot, near to Galu Devi Temple (starting point of Triund Trek). Clean Beds, got early checkin (5 hours before checkin time, a plus point).

    I’ve staid for almost a week in Shalom backpacker hostel and felt very comfortable. The rooms are nice and clean and they’ve got a reeeealy good chai! But the best thing about shalom backpacker hostel is definitely the staff, who is more than helpful and kind :)

    This hostel is fantastic. They’ve got comfy beds and amazing showers. The views from the balcony are stunning. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. They were very accommodating when my friends came and we asked for one dorm. It’s location is right in between Bhagusu and Dharamkot, about 10-15 walk. They have a full menu for all meals of the day. The security is good, big lockers. They offer filtered water, cold or hot. Overall a fantastic stay. I would highly recommend staying here.

    I stayed in a female dormitory during winter, beginning of January. This was the most comfortable stay of my entire trip to India - Nepal cause I wasn’t cold! Comfy bed with heater, very cozy room. Too bad the common area at the entrance lacks intimacy and coziness.

    I had a great experience at Shalom. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I stayed with a friend over Diwali, and they even provided the guests with a Diwali celebration and dinner. The location is scenic and close to a lot of cafés. The facility was very clean- my only complaint was that the sheets seemed a little dirty or stained.

    Really enjoyed my time at Shalom hostel, I met some amazing people, the staff were absolutely lovely and the location is spot on if you don't mind a bit of a trek. When I am next in Mcleodganj I will definitely be returning.

    Very Good

    Ok-ish. It´ s averagely equipped and secured. Staff is friendly, the place is quite clean, but the open structure leaves it open to the cold of Dharamkot at fall sometimes. The people were nice and welcoming, but there was not a lot of atmosphere. Biggest con: It´ s far up on the hills of Dharamkot, so you really have to hike your way to the hostel if you regularly descend to McLeod Ganj. Biggest pro: It´ s cheap, you get something out of your rupees. However, there are nicer alternatives.

    We waited for 2 hours for morning breakfast. The kitchen staff was not present, food stuff was not there in the pantry, but all this the hotel manager could have told us, but he just kept on saying that you will get your order in few minutes. Very unprofessional.
