I stayed at Akash for 3 weeks as a solo female traveller looking to do some volunteering. Not only are they a fantastic location, literally RIGHT next to LIT (http://learningandideasfortibet.org/) and other volunteer opportunities, and located less than 5 minutes away from the main square/bazzars, but it is truly the most welcoming, warm place I have ever stayed. I read a couple of bad reviews on here and I would like to say PLEASE DISREGARD THEM! Those people clearly have bad, prissy attitudes. Ok, so if you are looking for a 5 star resort....DONT GO TO INDIA! Spend your vacation in the Carribean islands or something, you'll be much happier. If however, you would like a little slice of friendly India...I can offer no greater advice than to stay here. The people there--Moona, and I'm sure whoever is staying there at the same time as you, will become like your family. The lounge space/cafe in the main lobby is like the living room for the guests, everyone just chills there and enjoys eachothers company. You will make so many friends. It is fantastic if you are travelling alone but also if you are with a group! I really think anyone could have a great time here, if you are open and chill, but it is really perfect for backpackers. Don't expect American style comfort but that's because you aren't in America. It has more of a co-op feel than a hotel sometimes, ask if you can help make a group dinner or something! And bring your musical instrument with you--spontaneous jam nights are the best here! Embrace it, just chill out...and live the shanti life at Akash!!
