    The Wooden bunk beds provide a very soothing and Relaxing feeling to every single Guest in the property which really helps in Providing the Calm and Peaceful Vibe which the Work from Home / mountains guest are Looking for Make sure to ask the owner Siblings Vishvesh and Kashika About nearby hidden Hikes and offbeat things to do near the Hostel premises or in general Old Manali. The cutiee Labrador these guys have named Pluto is love all day long 💛

    My stay at The Culture Nation Hostel, Manali was way beyond expectation. The property owner, Kashika is super great and fun to be around. The food is really good, though a bit expensive but great. The view from the hostel roof is really nice and dorms and washrooms are really clean and tidy. Keeping in mind the location and the vibe, this place is ideally situated in Old Manali. I would definitely recommend this place and would myself revisit soon for a longer stay.

    Kind of like a chill wooden dormitory bunk bed accommodation with superb views from the top of the property. Location seems really easy to find on google maps and the location itself known as old Manali is the hub of all hip cafe's and romantic vibes. The hostel is run by a family from Delhi. The mom of the family is actually an actress who has acted in karan johar's upcoming movie " SheerShah " playing the mother of siddarth malhotra.

    The location is great its situated in the center middle of Manali meaning all the cafe's and attractions are nearby and can be easily reached without any issues. The amazing Wifi allowed me to work from mountains and enabled me to upload my photography work into my social media These guys also have dumbells in case you are in for a long stay ask the hosts that you are interested in workout sessions in terms of weight training and cardio. The optical fiber connection enabled me to work properly,

    A gorgeous hostel right in the heart of old Manali with short commutes to nearby hotspots, you cannot go wrong staying here. Great amenities, and welcoming hosts make for a highly comfortable and pleasant stay. And the place itself echoes a vibrant yet soothing vibe. Be it enjoying a delicious meal on the rooftop (cafe) overlooking the mountains, or just savoring a drink - ah, what a sumptuous experience it was. And lastly, Pluto is out of this world!

    The hostel is like a hidden gem in a valley, the property is nice and cozy, especially the wood made bunk beds. It gives you a feel of log shed and takes you back a time when there woods was home for hunter and gathers used to live in these pristine environments. Management is quiet jolly and always read to help. Cafe is also nice. All the food is prepared fresh like a gourmet restaurant

    Kanishka is a bad host. You can't eat in your room. You cant talk to your friends (noise problem). This hostel doesn't provide the freedom that backpackers go to feel in any hostel. Too many rules. But great value for money and good location.
