Property Description

Welcomes to The Hosteller Kufri, Shimla. Well, there are many reasons why you should plan a visit to the serene Himalayan hamlet, which lies at the beginning of the Hindustan-Tibet Road that further goes up to the Tibet border in the Kinnaur region. Also, it is the highest point around Shimla and is famous for offering snow experiences during winters. With swaying green fields and snow-covered mountains in the backdrop, charm and serenity will awe you all the time. The nearest airport to Fagu is Chandigarh Airport. Daily flights from Delhi and Chandigarh are available. It is also well-connected to major cities, such as Delhi, Amritsar, Bengaluru, and Mumbai. If you want to take the train, the nearest one should be the Shimla Railway Station, which is around 18 km away from Fagu. If you are coming by road, you can hire a car and drive from Delhi or Chandigarh without worrying much.

The Hosteller, a chain of backpacker hostels with 22 (and growing) hostels across India currently, is the perfect pit-stop for global as well as local travellers to relax, rejuvenate and experience India’s rich heritage while not worrying about a clean, safe and smart place to stay.

The Hosteller is a chain of backpacker hostels and is well suited for young backpacking travellers. As a brand, we do not recommend families and do not allow all those below 18 years of age to stay with us.
