Highly recommended to visit Live Free Hostel. All staff members are so polite & friendly in nature. Rooms & beds are neat-n-clean. Their cafe is also nice to spend time with live music. Prefer to go for online booking to get minimum price rate.

I opted for a private room, I am leaving with my friend. The room is much small if you compare it with hotels. They have a cafe area in which live music is running, you can chill in that area. They have a table tennis board in the terrace area. Parking available for 3/4 cars. They are offering other activities such as river rafting, bungee jumping etc. Overall it's nice but not great.

Everything is ok..but few things to be modified by your end...firstly...your rates are fluctuating daily ..this is not good...you are going to spoil your image like this..customer will disappointed by this changes...secondly in your food items ..sweet dish is missing...everyone like sweet after lunch or dinner...that is missing from your end...i have to left your hostel due to your rates fluctuates..suddenly double your rates..this could not be justified and torelable.

Hi, I had stayed at live free while I came for trekking. I extended my stay here even after the trek. I was quiet impressed with the way things are managed. I stayed at 4 shared dorms. They are very reasonable at price and good with all modern facilities. You have nice sit out place at each floor. Food at the restaurant at livefree is another feature. When we returned from the trek a large part of our group stayed here and partied and every one liked the place and food. Staff , both reception and house keeping are very friendly and cooperative. They do help to the best and offer suggestions for treks , picnics etc. Also this place is located very close to Laxman jhula and couple of temples. One can go to Ram jhula as well by walk in the mornings. So to conclude I had a great stay here for 6 days. It was really nice experience. Thanks so much.
