As the trend of ‘gap year’ (or gap yahhhh) and ‘backpacking’ catches on globally, more businesses are opening up with a focus on catering for these budget travellers. PAILA HOSTEL is a latest addition in the growing number of businesses setting up base in the Lake city of Pokhara. The hostel has already received guests from Europe and it’s completely no surprise why Paila Hostel may very well be the Number 1 hostel on the busy strip by the end of the year.
WHERE TO BOOK
With 25 beds and a private room, the hostel is fit for any Mariah Carey type looking to spend a night or two! The recent HostelWorld.com endorsement by the diva is sure to attract a range of customers to the hostel experience. Bookings can also be made directly on HostelWorld.com and Booking.com with individual beds at approx $5 USD per person (£4 GBP) and a private room at $10 USD per room – includes breakfast. Now I think that’s a great deal for anyone aye aye!
LOCATION + FACILITIES
With the Lakeside strip getting longer by the day, location is an important factor when it comes to booking a place. The great thing about Paila is its central location. With only 400m away from the Barahi Temple Boat Station, you’re only minutes away from the popular Busy Bee Bar, Byanjan and Dunga restaurant.
The hostel comes with its own social spaces from a lounge, rooftop and regular movie nights and BBQ on request. Apart from board games, DVD’s and cycle hire on offer, the staff at base will be there to direct and share any recommendations.
If you’re like me and do not want to stray too far away from your room to grab something to eat then you’ll be delighted to know that there’s a cafe on the ground level and a restaurant on the first floor. Sorted. Happy Hostelling!
