    The Happy Drifters is the top rated backpacker hostel of Leh, (facility offering bed, breakfast and wi-fi) is located in a quiet location about 1.2 km from Leh main market and just 10 minutes walking distance. The ambiance was very good and staff were exceptionally helpful, specially Mr. Rupankar is everything from suggesting restaurant food to arranging to day trips/permits - Truly went above and beyond.

    Moved here after a very negative experience in a different hostel and couldn't be happier. Great, helpful and knowledgeable staff, clean rooms, cozy and sociable common area, can't want much more. Oh and they make their own food, which is very good - ask for their special "pizza omelette", it's not on the menu, but they'll gladly make it for you and it's yummy ;)

    One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in! I’m usually very critical of hostels in my reviews but I have nothing but genuine appreciation for this one! The facilities were more than what I paid for and the staff Arpan, Soumita and Prasad were super accommodating and very knowledgeable about Ladakh! Had some amazing conversations with them. I hope to come back soon!

    I was really apprehensive about the hostels in Leh and finally decided to try "The eagles nest", and i would say that all my worries were for nothing. The staff is very helpful and the dorms are all neat and i goto make a lot of friends over my few days of stay. Its a bit of a walk to leh market by around 20mins bt then who doesnt love a good walk especially in Leh. A great place and i would definitely choice it again on my next visit.

    Brilliant hostel! We stayed for a week and the lovely guy running the hostel (sorry I can’t remember your name!) is so great, he goes above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible and help with anything you need, but not in an overbearing way. We were all very humbled by his generosity and kindness - thank you!! They do fantastic food at a very good price, the hostel has a lovely vibe and great chill out spaces, good internet connection, clean and friendly. Highly recommend.

    Pretty nice hostel. They should put a Hostel guiding sign on the main road so that people can find the way to the hostel.
