We are locals of Mumbai, we are friends since childhood, we are hosts and travelers by heart and we are now proud owners of a social, safe and stylish backpacker's hostel in Mumbai. And we would love for you to become part of the family.
We are a small hostel with 7 dorms and 3 private rooms and are able to host 53 guests. We are set-up in two traditional old-style bungalows typical for our neighborhood called Bandra which was influenced a lot by the Portuguese. We have lots of space for travelers to come together and we love to interact with them as well. Our main aim is to give our guests an introduction of the city like they would not get anywhere else: get them off the beaten path, outside of their comfort zones and inside the young fun networks that make Mumbai so special for us.
Since we began in October 2017, we have grown our family, having 4 guys working full time with us. Now we need your help to maintain a relaxed but fun atmosphere and to present our culture to the world!

Mumbai is a city like no other and our neighbourhood Bandra is the cherry on the cake. It's full of contrast: young and old, modern and traditional, western and eastern, loud and quiet. It's full-on India but it also gives you a break from time to time with all western conveniences you might need. We want our travellers to get to know the city we love. And for you to do the same we would introduce you to every facet of the city: the obvious sights, the hidden spots, the best street food and restaurants, the nightlife, the peaceful places, the festivals, our families, our friends and our hobbies. We want you to live life like a local here so you can give tipps to our guests like a local. We make definitely sure you have a great time here!
This host offers accommodation and payment.
We need you to engage with our guests to make sure everyone has a great time around. This includes organising hostel event nights like quizzes, game nights and more as well as taking guests out to local bars & clubs at night. Furthermore, you would be involved in social media & content marketing. That includes finding and creating content for Instagram, Facebook and our Blog, including photos and text. For this, we trust on your ability to take ownership and to manage your time independently, keeping a fair and pre-agreed weekly outcome in mind.
We can also offer a small wage in case you'd be willing to work with us for more than two months and if you are willing to give more than 25 hours a week.
Mostly, you will stay in a dorm at our hostel. However, when we are in the main season and get fully booked, you might stay on our couch at our home which is 10 minutes walking-distance away from the hostel.
You can eat breakfast at the hostel. For the other meals, we either bring food or give you an allowance to purchase it for yourself. You can also cook at our home close by.
We are a team of three local guys and the German girl. We are all close friends since a long time but all very different in character. One loves to eat, the other loves to party, the next loves salsa dancing and the last geeks about history and that kind of stuff. We think we know our home pretty well and will make sure you will feel right at home too!
