Staying in hostels is one of the best things about backpacking. You’ll meet loads of new people and share experiences that you’d never get to try if you were travelling alone. Our hostel has all sorts of cool facilities, from Laundry to internet to bicycles. Oh, and we are cheap as chips, compared to pricey hotels around. We provide the option of breakfast or your own (non-communal) room if you are willing to pay a little extra.
It will probably pay off to always book ahead so you know where you’re staying. Although there’s a thrill from stepping off the bus or plane and finding yourself in a new place, with nowhere specific to go, there’s an added layer of security when you know you’ve got somewhere to fall back on. We highly recommend booking ahead at least for your first night in a new city. You’ll be jetlagged and disoriented, and it’s quite likely you’ll need some help getting your bearings. Since we have limited accommodation to keep things informal, it will help you to plan ahead for your trip. You can book both by email and phone on our contact page.
What to expect
In most hostels, you’ll find yourself with basic, simple (and hopefully clean) accommodation. It’s quite likely the décor will be fairly out-dated, so I hope you see the 70s as an era of great style. If you’re lucky, you might even find yourself with pine-paneled walls and ceilings. However our hostel is run in a newly constructed building with large picture windows, Ample seating space and a common lounge area. There is enough space to cook both indoors and outdoors in case you fancy a barbeque. There is enough light and hustled away from the din of the city, our hostel is a quite paradise waiting to be discovered.
. Washing facilities, bathrooms and bedrooms will all be shared, since we offer Dormitory style accommodation. You’ll have the option of choosing single-sex or mixed dorms; this is usually in place to make female travelers feel safer. You’ll find 6-8 or fewer beds per room.
A few good questions that you may ask :
• Is there someone to show you around?
Yes , since the hostel is run by owners of the place , there is someone available 24/7 to solve all your queries. • Is there a safe for your valuables?
Yes, you can store away your valuables in the safety deposit boxes that are kept under lock and key with your name on it. Since only you have access to the key, please keep it safe.
• Where’s the clean linen? Bathroom? Kitchen?
Clean linen is provided at the time of arrival and can be replaced on a daily basis on demand. The kitchen is big enough with you not bumping in to other fellow travelers at any given point of time. The bathrooms are shared so please leave it clean once you are done so as to avoid inconvenience to fellow travelers.
• Are the dorms single-sex or mixed?
There are two dorms which can be used either ways. If you are a large group of same sex traveler arrangements can be made for same sex dorms. Either ways we prefer to keep the dorms as same sex to avoid inconvenience to the guests.
• Are any meals provided?
Basic breakfast such as bread , butter Jam eggs are provided however you are required to cook as per your choice. A small tuck shop is also there where you can get food items and various other amenities as per you requirements.
• Are there any hostel pets? (good for allergy-sufferers)
Yes , we have Dogs who are friendly and rather playful.
• Can you see a room before booking?
Of course you can. Just get in touch with our friendly staff and they will do the need ful.
Things to carry
• A sarong - These have a multitude of uses, including bedsheets, wall coverings, towels, and are a great coverup if someone walks in while your pants are at half-mast.
• A sleeping bag/sleeping bag liner - Not all hostels provide linen, so take a very compact sleeping back with you at the bottom of your bag. If you’re travelling to one of the main backpacker destinations you probably won’t need it, but it’s still handy to have one just in case.
• Earplugs - You just know someone will snore. Fingers crossed it isn’t your girlfriend. • Plenty of padlocks - These let you leave your bag in your dorm in comparative safety - make sure you have some way of locking your bag before you buy it.
• A torch - Simply because nobody wants to be the person on the 5am coach that has to wake up everybody else because they can’t find their toothbrush in the dark.
