Property Description

Say hello to The Hosteller Bhagsu, our third backpacker hostel in the heart of Little Lhasa. Every room here offers a breathtaking view of the distant peaks, inviting guests to wake up to the alluring beauty of Mcleodganj. Designed to be your ideal mountain escape, this hostel is conveniently located and a picture perfect abode for those bitten with the travel bug. The hostel's facade is an impressive glass structure, marked with vinyl work and standing out like a yellow beacon amidst the mountain scenery. The Hosteller Bhagsu offers an easy gateway to explore the enchanting surroundings, being walking distance from the famous Bhagsunag temple, waterfall and Shiva Cafe.

The hostel boasts three distinct common areas, each with its unique charm. The indoor cafe, furnished with solid wood tables and benches, is an inviting space to enjoy a warm cup of coffee. It also features a lively foosball table for some friendly competition. The common area, with its 4-seater benches under awnings, offers a more intimate setting for conversations and relaxation. In contrast, the outdoor area, adorned with hammocks, swings, and parasols, is perfect for lounging in the fresh mountain air. The highlight here is the bonfire pit, which will see many lively nights, we are sure. The Hosteller Mcleodganj Bhagsu is a harmonious blend of contemporary and local design elements. The decor revolves around local items, handpicked from nearby markets. A standout feature is the custom-made infinity knot pattern decal adorning the cafe and the private rooms, adding a touch of local heritage to the modern space.

Situated near Bhagsunag Temple, the mesmerising Bhagsunag Waterfall, the famous German Bakery, The Tibet Museum and the famous Morgan’s Place pizzeria; the hostel is every explorer’s delight. The town itself, renowned for its scenic beauty and spiritual significance, provides a perfect backdrop for the hostel, integrating the essence of the local culture and natural splendour.
