On A Shoe-String Budget? Enjoy Affordable Stay In Mumbai With These Backpacker Hostels

Shortcut

Mumbai is a spectacular city and is visited by tourists and travelers all throughout the year. Yes, things tend to get super expensive here but what we really like is the fact that there is something available for every mood and budget when it comes to stay. If you're on a budget, check out these really cool backpacking hostels that will make your visit to the city worth it.

Backpacker Panda

If you’ve dreamt of living in the posh suburbs of SoBo but your bank balance isn’t really supporting your dreams, Backpacker Panda is here to rescue you. Stay in dorm rooms for less than INR 1,000 a night and enjoy the convenience of walking down to all your favourite places on your bucket-list (think Colaba Causeway, Gateway of India, Marine Drive, the works.)

#LBBTip: They also have a branch in Andheri. Sign up and enjoy great deals and discounts as you check into Backpacker Panda anywhere in the country.

Zostel

The largest chain of hostels in Asia made its way to Mumbai a couple of years ago and was a hit instantly. The tourists swear by the station-themed rooms and convenience of location (Zostel is situated in Andheri!)

#LBBTip: Along with the dorms, they also have private rooms available.

Co-Hostel

This cosy hostel lets you enjoy a complimentary breakfast on the rooftop and is located at a stone throw’s distance from Bandstand (which basically means Shahrukh Khan is your neighbour.) The hostel comes with 5 mixed dorms and one female dorm.
