“Loved this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The drive from Rishikesh to this hostel is itself an adventure, just the amazing mountain villages along the way give you a great insight into indian life in these remote areas.. Arriving at Nirvan I was taken back by the views it has of the Himalaya foothills, as a photographer it was a dream come true.... The Hostel is a beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable place with great energy that will allow you to unwind from the hustle and bustle of India and just relax amongst nature. I took a short walk down the road to a little village where people are so friendly and welcoming that I went from guest to local over one cup of chai .. If you want to comfortably experience nature, or traditional Indian life in remote India, this Hostel is for you..

I wanted to get away fro the normal route of Rishekesh and Dharmsala so decided to make the journey to Nirvan. Its in a tiny villiate on top of a mountain that has stunning views, on one side the Himalayas, on the other a big blue lake surrounded by mountains. The place is newly opened so the villagers are still not used to seeing foreigners so they are very curious and friendly (We were invited to a local wedding ceremony)!. The place itself has all you need, its clean, big, comfortable beds and lots of blankets (it gets cold at night so bring warm clothes) and has a nice big rooftop to catch some mountain sun. The guesthouse and location both just give off a nice energy.

We had the chance to stay 2 weeks in this great hostel, in the calm and beauty of Uttarakhand mountains. So far away from agitation of cities, it was THE place to rest and have walks in a wonderfull nature. More, it permited us to know more easily local people, so far away from mass tourism, who are very welcoming and good hearted people. So, if you want a good meeting with nature and local people, run for it!

The day i was visited pratap Nagar one of the great experience in my life in Rishikesh.
The landscapes are still onmy dreams with its own chilling breeze.
I saw a real tribal indianvillage with good hearted people.The children from the village was very sweet to welcome all the guest and to give their heart warming smile which makes you and gives you a positive energy.
Dont miss to visit nirvan commune during your rishikesh visit.

I stayed a week and everything was perfect, I really love it!!.The hostel is very quiet and cozy, with a amazing view. The food was very good and the room very comfortable. The local people very kind, specially the children......
It is the ideal place to be in peace and in touch with nature.....apart from the amount of trips and trekings you can do from there..... Absolutely recommended!!!. I wanna go back!!!
