Although a fairly new hostel, The hostel has gained popularity with travelers from across the globe rather quickly owing to it's unbeatable location away from the noise and pollution and our staff's unmatchable hospitality. You will get to meet and interact with guests from all over the world, meet local villagers and learn how they live simply in harmony with nature, help alongside professionals to gain knowledge that would last a lifetime.
We are constantly looking out for people interested in helping out with construction, mostly those with experience in carpentry, to create eco-friendly spaces for our guests. Besides, we have requirements for keen gardeners and artists to beautify our lawns and walls. We are also interested in hearing from people who are interested in the day-to-day management of the hostel.
Workawayers will be offered a bunk bed in our very cozy dormitory. As for food, our kitchen churns out arguably the best food in town for our guests and staff alike. There is a daily staff menu with a variety of dishes, both Indian and Western which you will be offered, besides unlimited cups of tea/coffee.
The hostel is a 10-minute walk from the main Street where public transportation is available, although the entire town can easily be done on foot. There are dozens of waterfalls, bouldering rocks, treks and hiking trails in and around Manali.
