Bistar is centrally located in a quiet by lane of the posh neighbourhood of Bhopal with killer lake view from each room and cafe of our hostel. Our hostel is the best vantage point to experience the city of lakes and is located near most tourist attractions of the city. Boat rides on any of the lakes is a pleasant affair but be sure to do it only in the evening. We provide an excellent base to exp

Bistar Hostel at Bhopal is undoubtedly the best place to stay at Bhopal. Visited during 6 to 12 January 2021 and the memories are still alive. This is located at Shymala Hills near Bharat Bhavan. You can reach here in 20 Minutes from the Raja Bhoj International Airport and 10 Minutes from Bhopal Junction Railway Station. Area is peaceful and views are exceptional. You would hardly found any location anywhere in the world with such a breathtaking view from inside the hostel and that too in a budget value. Location is adjacent to Upper Lake of Bhopal which always gives you sense of calm and relaxation from the garden inside. Let’s talk about food. The breakfast is exceptional. The menu is available on the website. I personally loved the Stuffed parathas with White butter, Amla pickle and a Coffee. That was the most satisfying comfort food and I still crave that. Poha is also another option you can try while being there as this is one of the famous breakfasts in Madhya Pradesh. For international travelers there are plenty of options like Aglio E Olio pasta, Pancakes, Mezze Platter, Variety of coffees, Tea etc. Coffee is too good. All the credit goes to Mr. Shaurya Sehgal. Hi Shaurya ! Hope you are doing well. I would call him the Ambassador of Bhopal. He has immense knowledge about the city that you would be surprised. He seems to be shy but you just have to connect with him. Overall I had a great stay and I definitely recommend Bistar Hostels. Go book.

If you want to experience the culture of Bhopal, to enjoy the beauty Bhopal has to offer and to meet some amazing people then Bistar Hostels is the place for you.Shaurya, our wonderful host ensured that he spent time with us to help us plan our Bhopal trip and had the most amazing suggestions for restaurants! He shared about the places where we'll get good breakfast, good coffee and amazing street food in old Bhopal.It was wonderful having firechats about Bhopal and the culture of MP with him. We learnt a lot about the place. Sadly, we only stayed in Bhopal for 2 days but we'll be back to spend time to enjoy the Lakeview and the sound of birds at the hostel. Best Thing: They have dorms as well as a private room at affordable rates. So feel free to book the stay that works for you.  Even Better: You get amazing homemade food. Must try the Pizza here!!!

Better hospitality than any five star hotel I've ever been to. Home cooked food, amazing owner and the view is a cherry on the top. I've marked this place as my go to spot if I ever get to visit bhopal again.
