This 100-years-old bungalow is the peace-out stay we have all been dreaming of for chilling (literally!) between the hills.

What Makes It Awesome
The bungalow in The Conjuring surely would have been a good place with vacay with friends if not for the crazy dingy lighting and the spirit of the witch. Take that and elevate the lighting to the max and the colours to the brightest, you get The Birdhouse in Coonoor. The 100-years-old British colonial bungalow is a treat to the eyes with its lush greens and the backdrop of Nilgiris mountains.
The Birdhouse is a backpackers hostel with the options of dorms as well as private rooms. You can choose to stay in a mixed dorm room or go for a double room with a shared washroom. They have female-only 6-bed dorms as well. They have an outdoor dining area where you can have your meal while chilling on the cushiony chairs and enjoying the cool breeze. You can spend your evening sitting next to the overlooking lake or spend your night around a bonfire with your fellow backpackers too. Prices of each dorm bed start at INR 650 and a double room at INR 1600.
Sipping a cup of hot tea while sharing stories with fellow travellers could get more easy and comfy. If you are looking for some mind-opening self-time, then The Birdhouse has hammocks fitted to trees as well. Read a book or take a nap while listening to the whistles from the mountains. The place is close to some known landmarks such as Dolphine's Nose and Sim's Park as well. A vacay while feeling right at home couldn't be better than this for a backpacker.
Your pets are allowed here as well on request without any extra fees. If you are looking for guides, then The Birdhouse offers walking tours around the town.
