My very first stay in a hostel and it's just 💯/💯. I came here to stay for a week but after meeting the Super Awesome people in BHQ ended up staying for another week ❤️. Loved the vibe and the people. The hosts Sachin , Anshul , Chetan * Bhai , they are just super cool , super friendly 🤩❤️ , Amar Bhaiya (Chef) he is so very nice , whatever you want to eat he never refuses he's always like " 5 minute mai ban jayga " Gonna miss his paranthas 🙃 and yes , how can one forget Nritika Sangwan , supertalented volunteer and ofcourse a very good friend now. Her wall paintings are just mesmerizing❤️🔥🔥 and thanks Nritika for the beer pong nights 🤩 . You guys made the stay pleasant. Met so many strangers - later Very good friends 🤝now. If you come to Manali this should be your first choice for stay. Clean, hygienic and beautiful accommodation facility. This Place has a great Vibe 😊. Thankyou so much for this wonderful experience. Miss you guys !! Hope to see you soon !! #SafarAbiBaakiHai........

Truly enjoyed the stay at the place . Strategically located in OLD Manali , Still you don’t have to climb to much ; ) was the good part … river flowing next to the place you can clearly hear all night which just Calms your soul … I made good friends in a short time cause you will find many like minded people … the Owners of the place are super chill guys will make you feel comfortable the time you check in till the time you sadly have to check out .. next time whenever I visit Manali this would be the place , without any second thoughts !!

As someone who loves to travel, Manali was always on my bucket list but the only thing I was concerned about was my stay there as a solo girl traveller. While looking for backpackers hostels in Manali, I was lucky enough to find that beds were available during my travel dates at Backpackers Headquarter Hostel Manali. Not only did I have a wonderful and memorable stay there, I also made some amazing friends who I never wish to lose. Coming to the hostel, it was one of the cleanest properties I’ve ever stayed in, and out of all the hostels I’ve stayed at in India, this one definitely felt the safest and also the most affordable as a solo traveller. Everyday during the trip, I’d look forward to coming back to the hostel and spend some quality time with the other amazing travellers on the rooftop- the place is magical and the memories we created are surely going to last a lifetime. Really can’t wait to go back to BHQ Manali, it feels like I’ve left my heart back there!

Stayed there for around 10 days. The place is cosy, away from all the noise. All you can hear is the sound of the river (which is the best thing bdw). The food options are limited but everything is worth trying. Infact, we ended up eating all the meals for almost all the days at the hostel cafe. Both Anshul and Chetan are excellent hosts and try to accommodate all the requests. If you are planning to stay here, do enquire about the farm visit. You don't want to miss an experience like that. I may not actually look at other options to stay for my future visits. Thank you for making this visit a memorable one. PS: You got to try Ginger tea and Black coffee.
