One of our worst customer service experiences ever. The hotel refused to refund our money during the free cancellation period. After following up with them for over a month through direct calls, emails, and booking.com, we couldn't get our money back. The worst part was their behaviour and arrogance during this period. In the end, the booking.com team paid us back and started a strong action against them. We booked this place based on the previous reviews on different sites, but as it seems, things have just deteriorated over the years and they are just reaping the benefits of their initial success. I do acknowledge that we didn't have a full direct experience at the property, but dealing with them through this ordeal gave us a fair understanding where they stand.

We have had the worst experience at this hotel Almost equal to a nightmare!! We had left our lugguage with the hotel and they misplaced our bag When asked for help they were not ready to cooperate at all, did not agree to share the cctv footage either!! Horrible staff !! They are extremely rude and non cooperative!! They dont wear masks and there is no one at the reception or gate after 12. Anyone can enter the premises and no one to monitor No food incase you are hungry a little later at night They owner is a big time snob and is of the assumption that inspite of all the horrible service people woud still prefer staying at their hotel just because of their location There are much better options just a few block away from theirs!!

Location - Perfect View from rooms - Super However, the property is not maintained. Rooms - You have to actually request the staff to clean the rooms, request for fresh towels, etc. Basic things are not provided. Dorms - While nice and spacious...not cleant and sanitised Once you leave the room, the sheets are not.changed, the pillow cover too are just kept as is. Also the blanket cover that should ideally be changed remains the same. Guess cleaning happens once a week. Even the glasses, cups used by earlier guests were left as is in the dorms, they wer'nt picked. Had to keep it outside the room door once we cleant the rooms ourselves. We had to do our own cleaning while in the Dorm to maintain cleanliness. Sanitised the place ourselves. Common area - The tables in the common area were always dirty. You can always find stains on them. They are never wiped clean Most of the times...we used wet wipes to clean the table. Charging points are out of order, only few charging points available. Food - Not so great for the price charged.

This was an accidental find. The location is absolutely brilliant. You are in Manali but far away from the maddeining crowd. It's a brand new property with amazing views of the river and surroundings. The bed was amazing but the huge pillows were not so comfortable. They were way too big and soft. They had mostly family crowds when we stayed, which was a little disappointing for a hostel. But considering it's a new property and not many people know about it, I think it's fine. Would have loved to hand out with other solo travelers and backpackers (but of course that's not something the hosts can be blamed for, so it's okay)

The second AltLife Hostel (First @McLeod Ganj) I visited and it surely took my heart again. Booked a private room this time and the views just made me stay a full week rather than just the weekend as planned. The hostel staff is amazing and the cafe serves really great food. Highly recommend the coffee, you may just get addicted to it. You can surely book this one!

Very spacious dorms; super clean and relaxing atmosphere. Location is perfect for the eye catching view of the hills. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I loved the novel collection at the cafeteria. A must visit place.

This is like a very new hostel in Old Manali and that is probably the reason why the service was very disappointing and patchy. It is also located a little away from the central part of old Manali, so having transportation is advisable. That said, the room was well appointed and comfortable and was a value for money place for a one night stay.
