    It was really an awesome stay I had @Shalom, Rishikesh. The view of River Ganges from this stay is amazing and you could literally listen the flow of water from here. The food at the Cafe is soo tasty and the staff here are very friendly who helps a lot in terms of guiding a Solo traveler like me. I would like to thank Shreyas, Vishwajeet & Vicky for the smooth check in & check out process. You have very good knowledge about the beautiful places around. Thanks for everything & see you soon :)

    I personally loved the experience of staying at a hostel. The live singing was engaging and the staff is nice as well. The location and view gets 100 out of 100 points as it is right besides ganga. Food was delicious as well. Overall like it to the point that I'll come stay there when I'll visit rishikesh again.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Make sure you keep your things locked away as sometimes the monkeys will go into the rooms. Central but quiet location with a nice view of the Ganges river.

    There were bedbugs in my bed, the stuff could hardly speak English except from the manager. As it wasn’t so clean in the room I had a terrible allergic reaction. But I met super cool people over there, who made my stay pleasant
