Why Chose This Place?
Being a backpacker budget is always an issue & keeping a tap on the same is as essential as anything else during the trip. Some of the reasons I can share while staying at the hostel are as follows.
Staff: The staff is super friendly, they will go to next level to help you. Be it renting a motorbike, directions, things to do etc.
The awareness of the staff is heartwarming. So, if you need anything just head to reception & ask for it & for most of the things it will get resolved.
Travellers: Being a hostel you can expect lots of crowd in the room, which can be great if you are traveling solo. Also, it will help you to plan
the things in an efficient way based on the experience shared by the fellow traveller.
Rooms: Rooms are super clean & tidy & there is housekeeper who clean the room in the morning & make sure everything is in place. Apart from that
the interiors of the room are amazing, the walls are decorated with the photos. Further, AC for a room; power sockets for each bed in working condition at your disposal. Also, wifi is available & works
with great speed. So no more connection issues.
Cost: The cost of the place is pretty reasonable & with the facilities available the cost is justified. Expect to pay something around Rs 350 per bed per head.However, the price may vary
depending on the season you book the place. Expect to pay higher price during the peak seasons.
Extras: Apart from all the basic things mentioned above, the place also helps you to rent a motorbike or take a trip to near by location, or book a bus etc from the reception itself. Thus, you will not
have to look for anything by yourself. This eases the work alot. For eg. I reached at the morning 8 am & wanted to rent a motorbike at the earliest & guess what they organized the same with in 15 mins & there I was with a key to motorbike in my hand.
Things like these helps alot during the trip.
