All set to explore the mesmerizing town of Rishikesh? Discover the best and let us do the rest. In the foothills of the Himalayas, 800 meters from the Laxman Jhula Bridge, which connects two of the villages of Rishikesh, our hostel is in one of the best locations, Tapovan, a quiet and peaceful area. With easy access to major tourist attractions, supermarkets, ATMs and medical facilities, it is the center of popular cafes, restaurants, yoga schools and ashrams in Rishikesh. We are a team of young travelers and our priority is to make our guests feel welcome and make their stay as pleasant as possible. Help them to know and discover more. When you hear the word hostel, you tend to let go of the luxury that a hotel offers, but our budget hostel is a catch for the facilities it offers. We help you plan your itinerary and organize social activities such as sunrise walks, adventure sports, dance and music events, evening prayers, Ganges Aarti, jam sessions, movie nights, family dinners, city tours, yoga sessions and much more. We offer maximum comfort from the daily perspective of a traveler, which includes a spacious yet cozy common area with an LCD screen for a movie night, speakers for a party night, a small library section, a washroom and a gaming area with various indoor games to spend some great time with your new friends, hangout lobbies, a shared washroom on each floor and a rooftop café with a breathtaking view of the town. Above all, an amiable and welcoming team that is always ready to help. We would love you to come pay us a visit the next time you are in or around Rishikesh to have a memorable experience with our Blue Jay family! Happy Journey

If you come to Rishikesh you have to stay at Blue Jay because of the following reasons, 1. Cleanliness : I would rate this 11/10. The hostel is cleaned twice a day the rooms and bathroom once a day. Most hostels say they disinfect due to COVID-19 but this is the first hostel where I have actually seen it happen with my own eyes. A a person who has OCD blue jay went above the standards i have come to expect from an Indian hostel. They meet European standards of cleanliness. 2. Ambience : I would rate this 9/10 due to the open space, open rooms, spacious bathroom and huge common room (which is incredibly comfortable) 3. Food : Well this is where they can improve so i would give it 6/10 as they could get better with the menu. Point to note that whatever was made here was tasty but its limited 4. Service: I would rate this 10/10 as everyone who works at blue jay goes above and beyond for you. Right from Anil, Priyanshu, Manish and Ayush, who manage the place to the owners Anu and Nitin. They arranged activities for me, greeted me every morning with a smile and just made my 3 weeks here the most memorable. However if i have to point out one thing, it would be efficiency. If they fix this bit they can be 11/10! 5. Wifi: This definitely needs to improve if they want to attract a work from home crowd and make this a co-working space. I would rate this 5/10.

Hi, Trisha. We are glad you liked your stay and thank you for acknowledging our team's hard work they really give it their all to make sure everyone who stays with us has a comfortable stay. We understand your dissatisfaction with food and wifi. You had to face the wifi issue because we are upgrading the entire system and its a bit harder than it looks in a hill station so it took a while and you had to face that issue for which we apologize. And we are trying to improve our menu. So, the next time you stay with us you will get an upgraded menu and better wifi. We look forward to hosting you again. Cheers!

Me and my wife visited this hostel in Oct'20 and stayed for 2 nights. The hostel is great for young bachelors as well as small families ! Modern & pleasing design with all amenities of a hotel (except room service). Staff makes sure that you feel comfortable at hostel and engage you in activities to make feel at home ! Sai, Tanmoy and Priyanshu were amazing hosts, guided us from local iternerary to the adventure sporting, local transport to the next destination. The late evenings were great pit stops, with us playing Zenga, Foosball, etc. in common area The restaurant is very nice, hygenic and professional.. with reasonable rates. We loved the breakfast and dinner Common areas have laundry and ironing arrangements. Hotel also helped arrange the Scooters for our local sight-seeings. Bed linens and room furnishings were clean. Toilets are modern and hygienically maintained. Location is close to LaxMan Jhoola and the near the main road, in Tapovan Area. overall the best deal and great place to spend your holidays !
