We were kicked at the mere mention of the word 'Poshtel', which is basically a posh hostel in Hauz Khas. Called LetsBunk, this space has a gourmet cafe, a deck that overlooks the forest, a co-working space and a budget-friendly hostel.
There’s always that one person in the gang who’s not the type to rough it out. Their idea of a hostel is a bit out of a horror movie, with icky shared bathrooms, creaky beds and unaccommodating roommates. This hostel stereotype is exactly what the founders of LetsBunk are trying to debunk.
In a day and age when our social interactions are becoming more and more impersonal, this seems like a breath of fresh air – Poshtel combines hotel-like comforts and the close-knit, community-feeling of a hostel. You can meet, connect and eat with people from all over and who knows, you might finally bump into someone who inspires you to make that start-up idea finally happen.
There are just so many feel-good things about this place. Sunshine is ample and it’s surrounded by greens. The breakfast is included in the per night tariff and the wi-fi is super fast. And, soon enough, they’ll host yoga classes, local tours and Netflix nights. What’s not to like here, guys?
If you’re someone who likes his/her space away from the pack, there’s a private loft to hide in. Or, they’ve got social rooms that can take 6-8 people and start at around INR 800/night. There’s even a girls-only social room (in case you’re a bit of a tentative solo traveller).
