Bangalore is brimming with bars, restaurants, historical places, and there's so much to see and do here, that finding a place to stay in Bangalore really comes down to location. Whether you are visiting your friends in Bangalore or happen to be those folks who happen to stay way outside the city limits (read Whitefield, Hennur, or even the airport side), we've got you covered. Our list of best hostels in Bangalore are either centrally located or not too far from the action. And they are also easy on the pockets. A bed starts at INR 400 in most of these places.
A Guide To Some Cool Hostels In Bangalore You Can Check Into
Draper Start-Up House
A hostel for entrepreneurs or those looking to venture into the world of startups, The Koramangala hostel has dorms and shared rooms and private rooms along with community space for folks to get together (so if you were worried about checking out all those breweries yourself, make some friends in the common area). Beds start at INR INR 700.
Cuckoo Hostel And Commune
A zero-waste hostel — The Cuckoo Hostel and Commune is an old house, refurbished and converted into a hostel that recycles materials and uses those in the hostel. Tables and beds made of crates and packaging material, recycled furniture and so much more are in store for you, when you stay here. And the best part, the price for a bunk starts at INR 500 a night! These guys also have loads of events and others to be a part of, including board gameplay sessions and comedy nights.
Indiranagar has quite a few hostels that you can check into of which one is already on this list. The other one is Woke Hostel, where beds start at INR 500 and you have a lovely garden to laze away. It's on the lane next to CMH Road, so you are not too far from 100 Feet Road or 12th Main Indiranagar. If you coming solo, beds are aplenty, but if you are coming with your bae or meeting bae here, you can check into the private cottage room by the garden with the hammock. They also have one in HSR Layout, in case that works out better for you.
Located in the quiet lane in Abshot Layout, near ITC Windsor, the quaint hostel channels Wes Anderson vibes through its Yellow and pale teal paint job to the old school lamp-shade dramatically lighting up a Victorian clock. Each dormitory has an en suite bathroom and they also have a private room you can stay at. The common space is dotted bean bags, low seating and comfy cushions - definitely a place we'd hang all day and night. Beds start at INR 499 and there's breakfast on the house! Check it out here.
Social Rehab Downtown
There are six-bed (four-bed and even eight-bed) dormitories as well as private suites for that added luxury. Bunk beds with curtains on each give you that extra sense of privacy. The common room is loaded with board games, books and of course, a television, you’ll want to move in here even if you’re not a traveller. Ideal to inspire or at the very least soothe, the walls have doodles and drawings on them. Beds start at INR 500 per person per night.
Smack opposite Empire Hotel, it really does not get more central than that! With five floors and a terrace space, this one is ideal for business folks in town for just a few days, or even for long stay if you want in on the (limited) action of the city. I especially love it for its proximity to Cubbon Park! With modified rooms and dorms to fit the current situation, there are 2-person women’s only dorms starting at just INR 499 a night, and the 3-person mixed ones for the same price. Smartly, the bunk beds have been converted into bunk-study tables. So hop off the top bed, and voila, settle into work on the bottom. If you want to check into a private room, those start at INR 999, and are surprisingly spacious.
