We visited Manali in quiet season at the end of November. Originally we planned to stay up the hill in Vashisht as we wanted some peace out of the madness of Manali centre, but when we called the guest house they had closed for the season. They recommended Drifters to us as an alternative in Old Manali and we were... More

I stayed here for one night and loved this place. There were 5 of us friends and we booked one superior and one standard room. The rooms were clean, hygienic, warm and cosy, and offered beautiful views of the mountains. The attached bathrooms were clean with ready hot water flowing from the faucets. We arrived at Manali at 8am and... More

We had booked the room in advance through Nishanth, who was very helpful in arranging our stay. We stayed in a room that could accommodate 5 pax. The room and toilets... More

I stayed at Drifters' for 3 nights, and I cannot even think of a single reason why I should give them anything less than 'Excellent' rating. Right from the check-in till our check-out, everything was simply perfect and the level of hospitality here is beyond imagination. I wish I could describe every single thing I noticed about this place, but... More

cute little rooms , warm and comfy. You can roam around old manali and come back to this place which is almost like home. The owner Nishant is nice and and also let us extend our stay there ( we had booked only for 1 day ). We paid around 1300/night which was a last minute booking. What I like... More
