Elysium Inn Hostel
Think of bunk beds, amicable strangers, and epic conversations on globetrotting and exploration is what Elysium Inn Hostel is all about. Whether you’re a solo traveller or visiting Hyderabad for the first time — this is a great pad for you to crash. The living room is decked up modestly with bright hand-painted tables, low jute stools, and printed cushions. The bedrooms are more of dormitories with a mix of a female dorm room, a shared dorm room, and a private twin-bed room. The dorm rooms have bunk beds while the twin-bed room has two single cots with handmade decor accents that match the living room. This makes for a great getaway particularly because it’s located in a prime area which is well-connected to the city. Although, do note that this hostel is only for travellers and group bookings of backpackers aren’t usually accepted.

Beehive Co Living Elixir
Beehive, a hostel, is located in a quiet neighbourhood in the otherwise bustling locality of Banjara Hills. The hostel which is located on Road No 12 is apparently a popular choice for hanging out amongst the city folks and is meant for solo travellers and families, alike. It is a 40-minute cab ride from Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in off-peak hours and is a family-run communal hostel. The hostel currently has three shared spaces — one exclusively for females, and two mixed where you and your squad can relax and socialise. The rooms are named as per the theme of a beehive, of course. ‘Elixir’, ‘Nectar’ and ‘Honey’ each accommodate up to six people in their bunk beds. Each room has its own bathroom. The space also imbibes a DIY culture that is trust-based. The founders have a jar where customers drop the MRP amount for the groceries and ingredients they use from the open kitchen.
