COVID19 & rebooting!

The Covid19 pandemic made its presence felt in India around the beginning of March.  Like all other businesses in the hospitality sector, we shut down our operations around the middle of March and have been closed since then.  As of the middle of September, many restaurants, hotels and hostels began opening their doors in an attempt to begin the long crawl back to normalcy.  Unfortunately, the numbers are still going up and it looks like normalcy is still far away.  As a result of this, we have decided to remain closed till the end of November and to partially open around the beginning of December 2020.  

While leisure travel is not a top priority for anybody during these times, we have received many requests from people looking to escape the claustrophobic environs of city apartments to be able to Work-from-Anywhere.  To those wanting to escape cabin fever, we present to you the Work-from-Anywhere option where you, or your friends or even your colleagues can take up a dorm at our hostel and stay on a long-term basis.  From our end, we can assure you all the basics including high speed WiFi (good enough for video calls or Netflix) and all your meals are covered.   

When we do open, we will be running things a little differently until this pandemic is (hopefully) behind us.  In addition to the obvious practices like social distancing, frequent disinfection etc, we will also adopt the following practices: 

  • Ensure that only 1 person or one group traveling together stays in a 6-bed dorm with attached bathroom

  • A minimum stay of 7 days would be required

  • To minimize contact with the outside world, we will be providing 3 meals a day and this will be included in the price

  • We will run only up to 50% capacity of the hostel, which means we will accept only up to 18 guests.

  • Freeze on daily social activities conducted by us until further notice

Pricing: (Prices are all inclusive -  taxes, housekeeping, WiFi, drinking water, hot showers, 3 veg meals a day, guest kitchenette access and storage lockers in dorms.  Only Washing Machine use is chargeable at 150/load)
