Property Description

Located right next to Mall Road, each room in The Hosteller Mussoorie Mini has a panoramic view of the valley. With 4 dorms and 4 private rooms, a game room and common areas full of energy - it is the ultimate escape from city life. Keeping a modern approach in mind, the space has been transformed to incorporate a dynamic design style. The spiral staircase connecting the floors, the wooden furniture with a Portuguese touch, spacious poster beds and the minimalistic conceptualisation make the hostel extremely unique.

A cute library area welcomes you as you enter. It is a heaven for all book lovers as it is filled with interesting books. Imagine sitting on those super-comfy chairs as you sip a cup of chai and lose yourself in the world of Ruskin Bond! Quite dreamy, right? Leave all your worries behind and let go of all stress as you join fellow travellers at this quiet and peaceful escape. Close to the town yet serene, this hostel is for all the writers, artists, creative souls and travel lovers who want to live their best mountain life.

The property was way below expectations particularly from a cleanliness point of view. The property was stinking of sewage in some of the common areas. There was a rat in our dorm (4-bed mixed dorm), we pointed it out to the hostel staff and they were unable to drive it away. To make matters worse, there was rat poop on 2 of the beds and in the storage space. All in all, a stinker of an experience for me and my co-traveller. Do not recommend this hostel if hygiene is a consideration for you.
