Yoga practitioners and rafting enthusiasts have made Rishikesh quite a popular one on the travel map and that brings numerous visitors to this otherwise holy town. As a result, the place is brimming with ashrams, hotels, guest houses and hostels.
Moustache hostel located in a narrow alley in Tapovan is an excellent option to stay if you are keen on a budget hostel. It’s located close to all the major attractions such as Laxman jhula, River Ganga, ashrams and cafes. Apart from dormitories which are both mixed and women only, the hostel also has private rooms. The terrace offers lovely views of the hills and the surroundings. The rooms are impeccably well maintained and the staffs are quite friendly. The hostel also organizes numerous activities such as rafting, yoga classes, visit to nearby attractions and treks. The common areas are spacious, vibrant and also an ideal place to relax and meditate. The rates for dormitories start from INR 349. Moustache hostel is also present in other locations in India such as Jaipur, Udaipur, Pushkar, Jaisalmer, Agra and Varanasi.

Cleanliness: The rooms, baths and common areas are squeaky clean and well maintained.
Activities: They organize or connect the guests with a host of activities and that is quite helpful as you don’t have go in search of the same.
Common Areas: The common areas are ideal for meditation, yoga classes, to read a book or just gaze at the mountains.
