Why stay with us? We have a central location with a stunning rooftop hangout and an incredible view of the Ganga. We have dinner parties every Thursday and an array of activities offered throughout the week. There is fresh chai available all hours of the day. You'll be greeted by our friendly dog, Blacky and we are always available to make your stay more enjoyable and to offer advice on the best places around town. Shiv Shakti Hostel was dreamt up two years ago when we recognized the need for a backpackers hostel in Rishikesh. We have been continuously innovating and can safely say we were the first hostel in Rishikesh to offer free wifi, the first to offer dorm rooms and the first with usb chargers. Our Hostel We have 3 great common areas where our guests can hang out and meet other travelers: -A rooftop lounge where guests can play cards or chat while enjoying a view of the Ganga. -A rooftop yoga area where nightly yoga classes are held. The area also has chairs and cots for a perfect reading spot. -A fun front desk lobby area that is always full of life from the hostel guests and staff to visitors from outside the hostel looking to enjoy some of the treks or adventures offered by us. We have 8 private rooms and 3 dorms. All have access to free wifi, plenty of power outlets, usb chargers, lockers, and bed linens. Our Activities Sunrise Trek – An amazing tour with our english speaking guides where guests will enjoy an incredible view of the sunrise. Breakfast is provided on the trek. Thursday Dinners – Every Thursday we have a family meal as a hostel. It's a great time to meet other travelers from the guesthouse and feel a part of our family. Evening Yoga – Yoga is offered on our rooftop six nights a week where our guests will be challenged physically and mentally.. It's offered on a donation basis. This is not a corporate chain hostel. We are an intimate, down-to-earth group of mates who love traveling and socializing. Come be a part of it!

Very chilled out and friendly place to be at. My 1st choice of stay in Rishikesh is always ShivShakti (from last 4 years) . Nitin and Anu are very sweet and welcoming and make you feel like you're at a second home. It takes effort when your guests become good friends. Keep it up guys!

Although I didn't stayed here I have been invited to the ''Family Dinner''. The food was good but the atmosphere was amazing. We had a lot of fun dancing on different kind of songs and I could learn some moves from Indian dance. Not only the staff but also the travelers who are there, made me feel as being but of a big family. So much that I returned for one more Family Dinner. I had the pleasure to go with Anu for Arti Ceremony and to a street food tour. I love it! Give it a try if you ever visit Rishikesh.

About 100mts from lakshman jhoola. Finally a big thanks to Anu(owner) for treating every guest as a family.
