Had a great stay at Young Monk! Food and the management was clearly a highlight. The hostel provides excellent workation environment (wifi, workspace and power back) and is very well located with close proximity to main road, old Manali cafés and hike trails. Will highly recommend for longer stays.

We pre booked the rooms but When we reached at the property the guy said they don't even have rooms and he didn't recieved any booking before of technical glitch but his property was still showing availability on the app. It was 11 in the night and after pleading he decided us to give room in some other guest house and asked us to pay extra amount. It was a very bad experience.
