All About It
  • 1 Days  1 Nights 

Located right across from the primary bus stand in the town, The Hosteller Bir features comfy rooms, a big open air cafe, a hammock lounge, bonfire areas and a super friendly furry host, Joey. The best part about the hostel is that it is at a walkable distance from pretty much all the attractions in the charming town of Bir. Whether it's the Tibetan market, the artistic monasteries, the top cafes in the area or the landing site - you can simply grab your day pack and walk to all these locations. The hostel also provides several activities that one can take part in like cycling, paragliding, monastery tours and day hikes. Bonfire sessions, chai sessions and movie nights are also part and parcel of it. Truly a lively hostel in the middle of one of Himachal's best holiday destinations.
