    Culture nation was the most amazing experience, great vibes, the owner is a great person who makes everyone feel welcome. We didn’t want to leave! Stayed an extra two nights and would have stayed longer if we could. Would definitely recommend to anyone that’s looking for somewhere clean, new (and a hot shower which is very rare in India!) and just a good time. The rooftop is such a nice place to hang out and to top it all off the food is so so good! We will be back :-)

    An absolutely amazing experience. This is a wonderful hostel with wonderful and friendly owners. The roof terrace is awesome. No WiFi in our room but was available on terrace. Rooms were clean and hot water available throughout. Food was great. Thank you for having us and thank you to the owner for your recommendations, you were so lovely and we’re sorry we had to leave so early so didn’t get a chance to say goodbye. To all travellers - def book this place!!

    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

    No question if you are going to Old Manali you have to stay here - private rooms are incredible & the dorms looked good! Perfect location, absolute steal of a price!! Only critique would be to sort out the downstairs and make it look as welcoming as the rooftop!

    Such amazing and friendly hosts! The family that runs this host are just so lovely, it made our experience very memorable. Room was clean and secure. We were on the bottom floor so the WiFi didn’t work in our room (disadvantage of getting a private room without a balcony). They also serve a good breakfast in their restaurant. And of course you can’t leave a review of this place without mentioning they have the best dog, Pluto!

    The property is new and the rooms and beds are clean. However it's far from offering a good hostel experience. There is just a cafe on the top which also works like a common area. The food at the cafe is very average. But the most disappointing part for me was that the host was extremely money minded. She came to my room almost threatening to charge me extra for overshooting the check out time by 30 minutes. You don't expect that kind of a behaviour. If you have a choice, Zostel is much better.
