Vashisht's home stay and cafe immediately resonated with my idea of a homestay. It gives you that feeling of warm cosy comfortable place, like a home. It is NOT a hotel, so people expecting the host and their help to go out of their way to serve you then you might want to search for something else. That said, the... More

The hotel has a good location you may watch the scenic beauty of Beas river and mountain ranges from the balcony of your room but reaching the hotel is pretty difficult, there is no signboard on the road and very few auto and taxi drivers know about this place. Though it is just 4 Km away from the mall road,... More

Mala is a very helpful and interesting to talk with. We enjoyed our stay a lot. We arrived very late and she'd given our booked room to someone else so we ended up with a cheaper room which was fine. Nice because it is off the main road in Vashisht which is very busy in peak season!

Our family of four stayed at Vashisht Home Stay in April 2016, good timing since we caught the Basanthi Festival in the village. Mala's place is comfortable and quite clean and she was very friendly and helpful. The view from the balcony was beautiful and the location just far enough away from the main village area - leaving you peace... More

Due to the nationwide union labour strikes on Sep 2, we were unable to reach Manali from Shimla as bus and taxi services were cancelled and unavailable. I informed the owner on Sep 1 that... More

I wanted to run away from concrete jungle and wanted to go to home, a home where I can relax nobody to tell me to get up, eat breakfast etc. Here was the home despite of my few days stay at this homestay, I got the homely feeling.
