    It was an awesome experience staying there. Their dorms, infra, location all were so much amazing that I am feeling so much good that I chose that place. The staff was very helpful and caring. I would definitely suggest everyone to visit Kotagiri for a leisure trip and stay in Door to nirvana hostel to get icing on the cake.

    The Door to Nirvana Hostel is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. It's certainly the best hostel in India. Pictures can't do justice to this place. It is more beautiful and breathtaking than it appears in the pictures. The hostel is near the Kotagiri town slightly ahead of Coonoor. It's engulfed in teas estates and in a beautiful valley among the Nilgiri mountains. The food is really tasty. It's absolutely clean and hygienic in every sense. I can recommend it to every fellow traveler.

    An absolutely fantastic hostel! If you don't have a strong reason to visit Kotagiri, travel down just to stay at this hostel :) P.S.: The house mint and lemon tea is the best!

    I hate to say this, but I loved every moment of our stay at Akhil's place. The reason why I hate it, is because I wish I could keep this place to us few (so people don't flock all over the place). But, I guess it will be wrong to not talk about the place, food, stay, view, hospitality and Akhil. This was definitely one of the best experiences I had in a hostel. The view is breathtaking and the food will make you want more. We had around 50 cups of tea, so that's a must. Deserves the 10 rating!

    One of the best hostels I have stayed in, nestled right in front of a tea estate with an amazing view. The atmosphere is really chilled out. The host Akhil is really hospitable and friendly. Awesome and clean rooms. Will surely be visiting again. The whole vibe of the place is surreal.
