Property Description

Welcome to Tag Along Backpackers Hostel - a first of it's kind in Gangtok, Sikkim. The hostel was started with the vision of bringing together like-minded people from the global travel community, under the same roof. It provides a budget-friendly and comfortable stay to groups, couples and solo travellers. Our hostel is ideal for a group traveling together and most cost-effective when you are traveling solo. For female solo travelers, we have a separate dorm as well. The Travel Cafe on the ground floor is available for you to spend your leisurely time, connect with fellow travellers, read a book and sip hot coffee.

Centrally located at Development Area and a stone's throw from MG Marg, you will have quick access to all you need. If you are tempted to explore Gangtok, we can help you rent bicycles at discounted rates for the day. For artists, we'd love to have you contribute to the decor of the hostel with your unique impression, DIY or just throw in some ideas.

    A really good hostel. It met all my expectations. Fast WiFi, locker, shower, comfortable bed, beautiful view, nice lounges. And I could get help from the hostel to plan my visit to other places in Sikkim. The only thing I didn’t like was that it is allowed to smoke in common area inside. Since the smoke comes inside the rooms easily I felt uncomfortable while people were smoking.

    The location is perfect- just a 15 minute walk to MG road, the place is spotless and Manisha and Bhavna who run the place are absolute darlings. What more do you need! This is by far the best hostel I’ve stayed at, and I’ve stayed at quite a few in Europe. The kind of bond Manisha ensures she has with the guests is what makes it special. Perfect place to stay in Gangtok!

    One of my favourite hostels in India. The owner, Manisha, is such a great host, really welcoming and friendly. Great design and set up of the hostel. Loved the cafe (delicious food cooked with love). Plus a really friendly and chilled crowd that's stays here, so super easy to meet people.

    Excellent place to stay for solo travellers.However they need to improve upon cleanliness of toilets which were not cleaned during my three night stay there despite reminders to housekeeping staff.Clogging of drains after bath remained an issue and next person can not take bath until water gets drained out completely.
