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.

Very Good

The building is pretty good and the location is more quite than other hostels in the area. Of course the location would have been better if the Lakshman Djuula bridge was not closed. The staff is less professional and service-minded than one will usually expect and there are many Indians in the dorm who go to bed quite late (as they are in town to party). However the hotel is not a bad option (and as one of my friends got sick the staff was actually very helpful).

Friendly staff and lovely rooftop patio. Study/work room was nice. Private room did not have a window, and the washroom was terrible- quite a bit of mold and odor. Laundry was not available despite it being advertised as so! Would not recommend for travelers seeking a comfortable stay in Rishikesh. Morning yoga is available, but know that the instructor will insist you the exercises his way- was not an enjoyable experience.

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!
