Ten-Second Takeaway

A lot of our friends keep on coming to Bangalore and sometimes they just can’t stay at home. And there’s a load of hostels around town that just aren’t the one bed and bathroom variety. Here’s our pick of hostels that are more than just a night stop.

Social Rehab

Social Rehab hostel is located in Indiranagar. The hostel comes with great location, right on 100 Feet Road, and is affordable and comfortable at just INR 1,000 a bunk, including breakfast and Wi-Fi. The hostel also offers loads of things to do here including a huge collection of movies to browse through and a television to watch them on. If you’re not in the mood for a movie, then you could challenge other boarders to a board game and maybe even make a wager out of it! {Free dinner, perhaps?} You could even pick up a book and read on their very comfortable couches, or even share some stories of your own!

Construkt Startup

Helping you connect with the community and build your startup and give you contacts to further build your networking base is what Construkt does. Construkt is not just a hostel, it’s a space designed for hackpackers {think learning and travelling}. Located in Indiranagar and Koramangala, it’s right in the middle of Bangalore’s bustling network and also near all places to chill and hang out. And at just INR 850 a night, it seems like a steal for the stay, the facility, and the networking!

Golden Lotus, Ashok Nagar

And located on Richmond Road, this is close to all the good restaurants, bars and must-see places in Bangalore city. The rooms are a little more on the expensive side, compared to other hostels and traveller rest spots, but for what you get and what the pit stop looks like, you’ve pretty much got a bang for your buck.
