We are a small family run guesthouse on the outskirts of Shimla town. We opened in 2010 and offer various types of rooms and dormitories as well as a well-equipped common area, Wi-fi lounge, garden, sun deck and dining room for travellers to share their stories. Our operating hours are from 8.00 am to 10.00 pm.
My parents are retired from their respective jobs while I am actively involved in the day-to-day management of the guesthouse. We have a regular full-time cook, one part-time cleaning maid and a property caretaker. We also have 3 stray dogs living on the premises.
