    Thira hostel is located at a prime location in Shimla and is just mins away from mall road. Good places to hop in and you find a homely environment here. We enjoyed our 2 nights stay at this hostel. :)

    Abhis and Shruti were the gentlest and most homely hosts. They were friendly and welcomed me like a family. I got to sit down and play cards, board games, cool Indian food in the common kitchen and there are boards and they share all the nice places to visit nearby- missed none of them! The hostel is located very close to the mall road (center of the city) but still feels far away (with no vehicular noises) and a spectacular view . Comfortable beds, 24 hot water, good WiFi is just an addition.

    Great place to meet other travellers and socialise. The manager makes it so easy for you to meet and talk to others, suggests amazing places to eat, visit and also helps you out with everything. The beds are warm and comfy and the rooms and bathrooms were clean. This place has a homely touch to it with all the community cooking and shares food, games and music and dance. The location of the place is a highlight- 10minutes walk to the center. Highly recommended!

    My stay at Thira was pretty nice. The property is close to the Mall and walkable from the old bus stand and the Mall... (My husband and I love walking) room was nice and clean. We had to pay 200 extra for early checkin. there was a bonfire at night which was awesome cos some of us who stayed there spent some time talking and relaxing around the bonfire. Electricity kept going on and off in the evenings which we were told is not a daily phenomenon. Abhilasha and Lokesh are pretty helpful.

    The receptionist there had very unprofessional attitude. Though she was generous enough not to charge me for the extra nights that I had booked but didn't stay. But apart from that, The moment I arrived ,there was no one from the hostel, the receptionist said she's partying somewhere out with her friends. There was no else from the hostel team. The Travellers there were showing me to explain me where the room is. During check out,again, there was no one in the hostel.Any thief could come easily.

    Cleanliness was a big issue. Most of the days the property had no water. It is very small n not much room to lounge/work or jus relax.

    Looks like it's under new management because facilities and staff are not good. It was extremely overpriced due to tourist season. The property stops check out at 11 pm. I arrived later due to weather and had to arrange to stay somewhere else. Finally I checked in but the host made us all pay EXTRA for a small space heater else it was too cold to sleep. I couldn't adjust my booking and still had to pay yet another night even though I would be taking a bus back to Delhi the next night.
