A great hostel in Islamabad. I enjoyed my visit here. Great WiFi. I cannot comment on the bed because both times I stayed here I was awake all night socialising with the locals...... I also rented a motorbike from their sister company. It was a good bike and took me to Kashmir. The owners Alisha and Haris are nice guys and will give you great advice. I will come back to Pakistan in August and will certainly stay again.

This hostel makes me feels I'm staying in home. Warmed with hospitality and treat all the travellers like family. Cozy room & relax space to meet others. Expert Pakistan knowledge from Elisha, the founder that really helps my journey smoother. I meet a lot of other travellers here that sharing some tips for my journey. Remember to try Kabuli Pulao nearby this hostel that recommended by the founder.

The common area is nice and the people working there are ok. The front twin room is a noise nightmare (front door banging/clicking, upstairs banging, outside corridor voices). The beds were clean but best not look under them! Private (awful) bathroom. Lots of wildlife at night. Stayed one night rather than three.

Clean place and safe location. The staff was friendly, helpful and available. Separate rooms with attached bathroom available, in addition to shared rooms. I recommend this place in the capital city Islamabad.

We loved this place! So much in fact that we stayed 3 weeks in total. The guys and girls who run it are some of the best you'll ever meet and they made us feel so at home. The facilities are really nice and the rooms are superbly air-conditioned! We really couldn't speak highly enough of this hostel! Go there!

I stayed in this hostel, for many days and came back again and again. I made great friends and its amazing how foreign people also like to come back to this place again and again. Host is super kind and friendly "haris". Elaisha and Ahsan who are managing other activities are like brother too me now. The location and views are superb. I have great memories and if any one of you want unforgettable memories do stay there.
