We are two childhood friends, Mehul and Abishek, fulfilling our life dream by running and managing a small cozy hostel in the beautiful Pink-City Jaipur in Rajasthan, India. Doodle Rack was opened in September 2015.
We are doing our best transforming the hostel into a place where everyone is welcome from all over the world and well looked after. Most of all, people shall feel at home! As this contains a fair amount of work and effort, we would love to get some help from volunteers to exchange ideas and turn them into reality and to create a multicultural ambience.
Our new family member Nutty, an adopted puppy from the streets of Jaipur, and our team will welcome you with open armes!

A hostel is a place where travellers from all over India and the world come together to free their minds and discover new adventures. Be part of the experience as well as our team to exchange plenty of ideas. You will learn how a backpackers hostel is run in all it's diversity starting from greeting new guests, making them feel home, manage their Jaipur holiday experience and giving them a warm farewell when it s time to leave for further adventures. Our local staff members will be happy to give you much of an insight towards vibrating indian culture. If you are interested in indian cusine, you are more than welcome to help us cook local delicious food for the staff members and guests.
We want to create memories and a home away from home. Be part of it!
