So me and 4 other friends of mine visited Uttarakhand back in January and after a hectic night of camping we ended up in Hipostel Rishikesh. We had made the bookings online a month earlier and we were searching online for hostels for a cheaper option to stay and we knew from the first glance that Hipostel was the exact place we were looking for. We checked-in in the evening and the vibes were just warm and welcoming like visiting an old friends home. We were welcomed by the host Chirag (Property Mgr) and were shown our room. We instantly ordered for a Pink Sauce Pasta and Coffees and wow we were literally in Cloud 9. The pasta was super delicious and the coffee was amazing too and we forgot about h what a long day we had. Talking about the hostel it is entirely designed to give you a glimpse of Rustic Indian Culture. There are a lot of mural arts on the walls of the cafe, the hostel wall and everywhere possible. The hostel has a lawn where you can chill in the evening for a bonfire and Musical Night that happens daily. It also has a van where you can chill and play your guitar or UNO with your buddies. The cafe has so many souvenirs from various cities all across the country including the lock and latch as well and its just mesmerizing to find books wandering and local authors as well as guides from The Lonely Planet. The entire theme is to get involved into the Indian culture and it honestly makes you feel closer to home even more hence they provide you a pair of flip flops on demand so you don't have to walk around in your shoes. The hosts always give you recommendations of where its worth visiting and what cafes you can eat at to ease your commute and the staff is super joyous and helpful with a constant smile on their faces. The hostel has a distance pole that has quirky quotes written and you just cant forget them. Make sure to spend a little time at the hostel while you're in Rishikesh instead of just running around in the town. Eat delicious food, join in on the musical jamming sessions when they take place, talk to other guests and share your experiences with them and forget the stress, chill around for laid back evening at the hostel.

My man being a typical Delhi guy was a little cynical about our stay in hipostel as he wanted to stay in some nice normal HOTEL and not HOSTEL. Since I have already stayed in hipostel I know it was going to be amazing. After reaching there seeing the property and the surroundings and also after spending a day, when he got familiar with everyone there the extended family of hipostel what I call, their staff and owners ... He wanted me to extend our trip. And I won the bet which we agreed upon at the beginning of our journey. I can't thank Alaknanda and Kapil (owners) more for making our stay a memorable one. And also that we have them as our friends for life. Hipostel is a home made in the lap of lush green mountains where the wind sings for you and the calmness whispers the secrets of nature to you. -P.s one must visit this place during full moon. It looks beautiful.
