We loved the vibe of the hostel, especially the staff (Dipto, Bhalu Bhai and Satyam). The fellow travellers were also very friendly and warm - we bonded well with each of them.

Manager Abhishek was too good. The property was clean and tidy. I am very concerned about washrooms wherever I stay and it was clean and maintained up to my expectations.

Property & the location, especially in winter (-6°c was the avg temp). If you want to enjoy snow and winters and experience life below sub-zero temperatures, this is by far the best in Himachal.
