    The best choice for stay i had made in the past few years. This place was worth all the 17hrs of continuous drive i did and Mr. Shantanu was a very friendly and polite host. If anybody wants to spend some peaceful time in the middle of the forest, this is the place.

    Stayed there for just 3 days. Wish I could've stayed the whole month! Everything from the hospitality to the location to the food- everything was absolutely perfect. If you are headed here even for 2 days, please don't keep party in your mind. The place is extremely peaceful and the locals very welcoming. Go there to appreciate the Kumaoni hospitality and warmth. Thanks for the wonderful experience, Shantanu! Will be back again soon.

    One of the most peaceful places I have ever visited. It is around 20 kms from nainital city in the midst of a forest. The owners are very friendly as well as very soft-spoken. The best thing about the place is that you can reach the hostel through 3 km long forests trail (there is other way through road too). If you are looking for a place to chill with your friends, or have alone time under the starry sky with bonfire, this is the perfect spot.

    I chose this place to celebrate my birthday this year. And it has been one of my most memorable birthdays ever. The place, the ambience, the people, Boo Boo, Daniel (their canine) each and every one of them were so good! You feel at home. You can choose to just be by yourself reading a book, laying in the hammock for an afternoon. Or you can even interact with the amazing people you meet there. I am definitely coming back again!! Love you, guys!

    A beautiful rustic property in a beautiful setting, it is located not too far from Nainital in a place called Jeolikot. Yet, this isn't one of those commercial places but something which is more than a home. The folks Harshit & Shantanu are doing a splendid job. Daniel, the new labrador in the block, is doing a good job amusing people and I am sure you would want to cuddle him. This is a place to comeback and spend good quality time and I am doing it soon.

    Best dorms in recent times.Comfortable and cozy and surprisingly warm at -2°C.Nested in the lap of lush green forest mountains,Vista is growing to be an organically built spot with living amidst nature experience. Loved the uphill treks conducted and some amazing camping spots.Not to forget rooftop cafe Luna and under the stars bonfire.Monu bhai and Bubu spins some wonderful local delicacies and chai from the kitchen, Harshit,Shantanu makes sure all guests leave happier than they had arrived.

    Spectacular experience; highly recommend. I intended to stay for a couple days at Vista and extended that to six days. Of the hundreds of hostels in India and in SE Asia that I have stayed in, my stay at this hostel is among my best experiences. Located in a quiet and peaceful location, you’ll wake up to a marvelous sunrise and to the sight and sounds of beautiful birds. Bonfires, music, laughter, organic farming, delicious food, comfortable and clean beds/rooms and restrooms. Love it!
