Moustache Mcleodganj is a class apart! This is not an endorsement, but the factual experience of staying at a wonderful property. From the first minute itself, we felt very comfortable and it felt we have been here for many months.
As soon as you enter, on your right is the 8-bedded dormitory with an attached bathroom. Straight ahead of this room is the main common area with the reception and the kitchen. There are beds and tables, allowing you to sit on these and raise your leg beneath the table. There are charging points behind each one of them, allowing Stay-ccation individuals to work peacefully. The whole campus is powered with high speed WiFi, and a lovely scenic environment, allowing you to experience a lovely time, in working from the hills
On the other side of the Café was the lovely open space, allowing you to take a chair and spend a good time, watching the hills behind you. There are 3 other types of rooms alongside this zone. The first one is the 4-bedded dormitory and the next is the 6-bedded dormitory and the last one being a double bed room. You can check with the rates on Goibibo or any travel website, or visit moustachescapes.com.
Mohit took care of the paperwork formalities and helped us show the dorm room and our beds. We booked two beds out in an 8-bed dormitory. It cost us around 250 rs per bed for one day.
Our room was spic and span! The beds were superb and what caught our eyes in the first place, were the thick blankets. It was unbelievably cozy and we were eager to crash in as soon as possible.
We freshened up one by one and wore new clothes, before moving to the common area. Here, we met quite some new individuals.
First up it was Gagan Arora, a Punjabi from Bengal. Next to him was Supriya, from Maharashtra. Other two individuals present that night were Sethuraman and Karuppaswami from Tamil Nadu. The common room described what India looks like! All were cordial and discussed about their stay and other traveling plans.
This was something very new for me and Arkya. Our first hostel stay has indeed turned special.
In the meantime, Mohit came with news that the rice on our food platter got cold, while the rest were piping hot. This was still fine for us and honestly, it was a tasty and a lip-smacking food to remember. All credits to Steve, who is the person behind the food.
We finished having our dinner and said goodbye to Gagan, who was leaving back the next early morning. We moved towards our room and crashed on to our beds. The feel of sleeping after a long train travel is heavenly, and that too in such a bed with a comfortable blanket and a cold environment. Can’t ask for anything more! However, we did set alarm for the next day, as we didn’t want to sleep-deeply, as we had the big day of trekking tomorrow!
We connected all our devices in different chargers, and arranged our bags on the rack. With all set and done, it was time to sleep and call it a night! It was a fun travel day, backed with an exciting new experience of staying in a hostel!
Stay tuned for Day 3, the First Day of our Himalayan Trek 🙂
