    Hands down, the best hostel I found in all terms, be it hygiene, comfort or hospitality. The food offered is made of high quality ingredients. Adding to that, the hosts are the best people. They'll go beyond their way to help you. Pluto's the cutest doggo ever, and that adds him to the list of the best hosts. Without thinking just choose this hostel over others, I assure you'll have a great time and will meet some amazing people. Being a solo traveller, I had an amazing experience over-all -pt

    This place is new, so it’s really fresh and clean. I had such a good time staying here. The rooftop is charming and the food is yummy and decently priced, especially compared to the restaurants in the neighbourhood. The staff is really kind and friendly. I really enjoyed the comfy beds, hot showers, and campfire. I can’t wait to come back. :-)

    Fantastic! Beautiful crisp sheets, comfortable warm bed, very clean. The cafe is a great place to hang out in with stunning mountain views, food is very good and reasonably priced. Located right in the centre of old Manali. The staff were always welcoming and helpful. Little difficult to find, follow the directions carefully, ask people and keep looking around you. Highly recommend.
