    I can only start by saying that this hostel has a special place in my heart, the staff are incredible, the location is great and the view from the common area and the restaurant are breath taking, as you gaze upon the river ganga. And oh, did I mention the swimming pool and how much fun it is to jump in, after a yoga class?

    This hostel was great! Nice vibes, great location, and a very cool cafe near the lobby. One of the front desk workers, Prateek, was the nicest hostel employee I have ever come in contact with. I have traveled quite a bit throughout Europe, staying in a variety of hostels, but no one has ever given me the same level of hospitality as Prateek did. From setting us up with scooters, to organizing rafting, to helping with everything else, he made our stay so great. I 100% recommend this place!

    The staff is not so nice. They trick us to pay more as they asked to book us from another medium. Took 50% extra money plus i.e 800 + 1600 +200 for one day for the normal room. basically i paid 2600 Indian Rupees for one day for a normal deluxe room. the room which i would have got at rs 1600 i got it for 2600.
