Tucked away in the residential area of Ajit Colony in Jodhpur, Hostel Raahi might for a moment beguile you as another house around the corner. Apart from its serene location, it is just 4-5 Kms away from Mehrangarh fort, the biggest attraction in Jodhpur, and less than 10 Kms from Mandore gardens. Hostel Raahi which was earlier a house has been converted into a hostel with both mixed dormitories and dormitories solely for women. True to the state’s character, the hostel is a colourful one with hues and wall art. The common areas of the hostel are a great place to meet fellow travellers, read books, watch television or play board games. Hostel Raahi also has a roof top cafe which offers continental cuisine. The rate for mixed dormitories starts from INR 210, which is an absolute steal.
What I loved:
Common Areas: They are spacious, colourful and have a nice vibe.
Staff: They are friendly, helpful and know the city well.
Price: The bunk beds are priced very attractively.
Location: Peaceful surroundings and not far from all attractions.
What I did not like:
Rooms: The rooms can be a tad tidier, though not a deterrent to pick this place.
