- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- By The Way is "A HOME AWAY FROM HOME" for Backpackers, is in Lower Cherrapunjee, Dukan Road. The location is on the main road, just before the Petrol Pump Station (Indian Oil) where the ATM is also there, on the right when you are coming from Shillong. It has 3 (three) rooms: 2 (two) dorm rooms with 3 (three) beds each and another single room with double bed and no attached bathroom in all these rooms.Opened on 1 June 2012 i started it when i met two Backpackers from Sweden while i was an auto-rickshaw driver, they wanted a cheap place to stay since the hotels/lodges here in cherrapunjee is beyond their budget. As i had a free room, so i let them stay in my place. Then an idea strikes to my mind that i should open a cheap place for Budget Travelers and Backpackers. Backpackers started to come and stay in my place and suggested me that i should give a name. Since it is by the side of the road and the cheapest place to stay in cherrapunjee so, i named it 'By The Way' ... more less
