    A really cool family is managing this hostel in old Manali. They are from Delhi and have started this hostel just a year back. They provide clean rooms and cozy quilts. Best part is the rooftop cafe which is a place for ultimate chill. Cherry on the cake is awesome food options at very affordable price. The wooden Bunk Beds Give a really soothing Feel and Make everyone Calm and Relaxed. This Hostel is really setting an Example for the Hostel scene in India. Cheers

    This was my first experience of staying at a hostel and I was not at all disappointed by my decision of staying in the hostel dorms. The hosts were very welcoming and cooperative. As far as the facilities are concerned, more or less everything was available. The bedding was really comfortable and adequate hygiene was there. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun filled and relaxed stay in a budget hostel!!

    Located in the heart of Old Manali, makes cafe hopping easier. Private rooms are nice and well maintained. Staff is extremely friendly and their Labrador Pluto is the icing on the cake.

    This was a really nice hostel. The terrace is very cosy. The host and the staff are really friendly and fun people. The food is also really good. The rooms are very clean. You’ll get great value for your money here and at the same time feel right at home.

    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 :-)

    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!
