Property Description

Sweven: A vision or dream (archaic), The Sweven Rishikesh want to bring you an unforgettable experience.

A lot of us have drawn a landscape painting in our childhood. The vision for so many of us was always the same. Mountains in the background with sun rising amongst the mountains and a river flowing off from the slopes onto a green valley.

For us, The Sweven Rishikesh is the real-life manifestation of that vision.

A cozy hostel situated near the banks of River Ganges, with tastefully curated private rooms and dorms, this property breathes art on every wall. With ample common space to interact with fellow travelers & gorge on delicious food, you will be hard-pressed to step out from this blissful little space in the middle of Rishikesh, the adventure capital of India and the Yoga capital of the world!

And we have made every effort to bring that dream to life for everyone who wants to visit Rishikesh, the adventure capital of India and the Yoga capital of the world, gateway to the higher reaches of beautiful Gharwal.

    Sweven is the best place to stay in Rishikesh. It is managed very well by warm and welcoming people, is clean and hygienic and has a very good vibe. Sanjay bhaiya is very helpful and is available throughout the day for anything you might need. You can hangout in their terrace alone or with friends. Beautiful view of the valley. The common room, dining room again have a wonderful vibe, you can work, read, eat and socialise there, won’t even feel like going out! Dorm rooms are very elegant too!!

    Very neat and clean place and supportive staff. This is best hide out in Rishikesh to feel home. Very close to laxman jhula and main market. Best thing I love about this place is it's huge bathrooms and spaciousness of rooms. Staff is amazing, they have guided me level best to explore rishikesh. They have amazing collection of books and sitting area. They have amazing food as well. Basically this place is like cozy home and it's can turn heaven for any traveller...

    Got a private room. It was clean and the AC worked perfectly. The staff were the best, they helped us a lot and were super accommodating. Things to improve: the WIFI didn't work 90% of the time and when it worked was painfully slow. The breakfast had us waiting for more than one hour each time. Overall I would recommend staying here! Thanks to the staff for being so helpful!

    I stayed in a 4 bed Special Dorm. Space is good in the room, enough for doing daily routine for 4. Cleanliness is 5 out of 5. Location is also good to go to major places around Tapovan/Lakhshman Jhula by walk. My stay was worth every penny.

    I'm glad I ended up at The Sweven on my first visit to Rishikesh. Rakhi and Rahul are locals and have loads of recommendations for good food, and are very helpful in guiding the backpackers explore the town both safely and economically. Being a tropical guy, I particularly enjoyed the rooftop bonfire scenes on cold chilly nights swapping stories with fellow travellers. Happy travels!

    Overall quite good. Helpful with organising rafting and bungee jumping and other activities available in Rishikesh. Some issues would be the dorm beds could have curtains for privacy, as a solo traveller like me, I would have liked that. Rooms need lockers too
