    The place has an incredible vibe and it shows how it is made and run with great love. Staff is warm and attentive to ALL the needs including covid protocols. Rooms are clean and have a nice fragrance, food is tasty, good wifi so we extended our stay after 2 days and will happily return. It has an incredible view of Triund and Snowline peak, just watch out for the booking and steps. ;) What stands out the most is the vibe of people here that made travellers extend from days to weeks, even months.

    Very Good

    If you care about supporting local businesses, and the local Dharamshala community, this is not the place to stay. The Hosteller is a chain of hostels, and this branch had opened only 4 months prior to, construction just completed, funded by a wealthy outsider. If staying on a budget is your top priority, then this is the place. The employees here were all very friendly, but do not stay here during cold winter months ~ I was not offered any heat source until I upgraded to a “luxury” room

    Hot water from geyser is a challenge though the geysers are big in size but the hot water rarely comes out. Light is also cutting off frequently Major challenge is not to carry too much luggage as it is a task to go down several stairs and take ur luggage to your room Room heaters are provided on request which is good Overall ambience is good and staff is courteous, the food at the re creation room is superb ..good for one time experience
