Went to stay for 2 days but extended the stay for couple of more. Work from Mountains is all about the best view, food, Wifi and the comfort. Well, this hostel is lacking none. Vibe of the place is unmatchable. Very Raw, quite and peaceful place to work from. Here’s some important highlights~ ♥️ Wifi : Wifi is strong, reach is commendable. Only at times of heavy rain, wifi speed lowers down ♥️ Food : Home cooked food, delicious and hygienic. You can also cook inside the kitchen. Veg/Non Veg meals available. ♥️ View : Mountain views from every corner, Kangchenjunga, is directly visible from the place. ♥️ Stay : Private rooms and dorms are available. Rooms are not that spacious as it’s like a cottage. ♥️ Power back up : There’s no back up as such, but electricity rarely goes out. How to reach - Drive till last of Lower Pelling area. Shortcuts are available if you wish to walk.

This place is a real hidden gem. Not far from city but yet too close to it. Peaceful and within a local community and its a nice neighborhood where you get to explore local lives. I'm looking forward to going back to Mocheloo Ostello. I really miss the good vibes! Also, the owner Nimesh and staffs are so friendly and helpful for any kind of information. I would highly recommend :)

Last weekend, my boyfriend went for an all boys trip on car. Destination was Pelling. As weekend trips have a tight budget, they landed on here. A hostel is really affordable including fooding and lodging and the view is to die for. So here I am gisting down few of the Pros and Cons of the stay here: Pros: 1. Pocket friendly. 2. The food was really good. 3. A fantastic view. 4. Located on the lap of nature. 5. Enjoy a barbecue night in the lap of Nature with good music and good companion, because friends matter too! Cons: 1. Might not be suitable for couples as there might be a privacy issue. 2. Sharing washrooms which are not really a problem for guys, but few women might face problems.

I am from Hyderabad. Solo travelling was an unfulfilled wish for me. After the ease of covid first wave, I decided to fulfil it. I've put my career, friends and family aside for 15 days and travelled to Sikkim alone to stay in some offbeat place near mountains. I've chosen Pelling (West Sikkim) as it is less crowded than Gangtok, and North Sikkim also closer to the old monasteries and mountains. By the time I reach Pelling from Bagdogra airport, it was 5 PM, and surprisingly its utterly dark, and the temperature was around 6 degrees. I didn't book anything in advance to experience surprise and started searching for a hostel on Pelling streets. Then I found Mochirello Ostello. I just got the number and called, there I met Nimesh, the person who manages the hostel. He was courteous and picked me up from Pelling junction and offered me a hot tea and snacks to get warm. After 1 hour of settling things, I came out for a short walk with other roommates and started experiencing the spectacular view from Mochirello Ostello. Mochirello Ostello is a decent stay with all the necessary stuff like Wi-Fi, kitchen and a breathtaking view of Mt. Kanchenjunga. It is 1 km away from the Pelling marketplace, Pemayangstse monastery and Skywalk. Nimesh will arrange anything you want, like a vehicle to tour, paragliding, hiking, bonfire, and he can be your tour guide as well. If you are travelling alone or with a partner and want to explore the wilderness of Sikkim or work from the mountains, I recommend Mochirello Ostello is the go-to place for you. Just check in, forget about all the unnecessary luxuries, set up a bonfire, hold a local drink and enjoy the Mt. Kanchenjunga view in the moonlight.

Our stay in Mochilero Ostello was wonderful. Nimesh, and his friends Suhanna, Leo, Linette and Durga welcame us with great pleasure. He gave us very good advice and place to stay in Yuksom. And the view from this place is incredible. Thank you so much to all of them ! Lucy, Clara and Lila
