Haven’t seen a more cozy, clean, comfortable, prettier hostel than this one till now. It is totally worth every hype that it gets. Its a place with character and personality!
(Disclaimer: This is not a sponsered post.)
While planning a trip to a place like Wayanad with lush greenery around, coffee and tea plantations, coconut trees and hills around one would not think of staying at a hostel. Mostly you’d want to go for a resort stay. No doubt there are plenty there in Wayaand too. Some of them too pretty to even continue looking for another place to stay once you’ve found them. And I think the most famous in Wayanad would be Vythiri resorts. Even I had planned to stay there but that was before I found this gem of a place in the heart of Wayanad.
Hibernest Hostels! One look at it on the internet and I had decided that this would be the place I would be staying and no more searching is required.
Trust me when I say this that its beautiful when you look at it on the net but even more when you go there in person. The first thought when I entered this place was that I would not mind staying here for even a whole month.
Could you ever imagine this kind of feeling being there for a hostel? Not for me atleast till I saw this place. I dont know why but this one gave me the feeling of being right out of the ‘LOOTERA’ movie just with a little south Indian twist.
In all my experiences of staying in a hostel this one takes the top spot and I don’t see it getting down the ladder anytime soon. Its a tough one to beat.
Why should you believe me, right? Ofcourse , you shouldn’t! I still have to give you reasons to believe me. So, here they go:
1. Squeaky clean.
I don’t know about you guys but cleanliness is top most priority for me. Especially the washroom. I do not understand that travelling cannot be comfortable always. That is why I was so surprised when I found this place to be spic and span in a place like Wayanad, where people prefer staying in hotels and resorts some one actually thought of opening a hostel with quality in mind.
2. Cozy and Comfortable
Do you love the hotel beds? They are just too soft with such comfortable mattresses and cozy blankets. Everything is in white and looks pristine.
No body would expect a hostel to provide you all these right? But it is exactly what you get at Hibernest Hostels. On top of it it has homely feeling to it with everything made of wood and the bunk beds too are of wood, giving it a rustic feel.
3. There is greenery all around
This one is so obvious. If you have ever researched about Wayanad then you would know this. But the reason I had to mention this is that there are a lot of coffee and tea plantations around Hibernest Hostel that you can walk into these and get some amazing pictures at sunset or sunrise, depending on what you prefer.
Walk + amazing pictures + sunset/sunrise = Perfect.
You can cook for yourself, anything and everything! They have all the appliances that you would have at home. You just need the ingredients. Now the question you’d have is that why would anybody want to cook on a vacation or a holiday. It is
We had an amazing time making breakfasts for ourselves. It was less work and more fun. Especially when you meet your best friend after so long so what better way to make some food and have long conversations and discussions while doing that! A beat coffee and late night conversations, what else do you require in a place like this. I would have loved a bonfire too but I don’t have anything to complain.
5. Helpful Caretaker and the manager
New place, a hill station no vehicle of your own! Then you absolutely require a local or someone to help you with all of that on the first day at least till you don’t figure all of that out on the first day.
That’s when the manager of this place steps in. He wasn’t there in person but made sure to talk to us on the phone through the care taker and helped us with the places that we can see and where can we eat and was constantly in touch to answer any queries we had.
6. Very affordable
This is probably should have taken the top spot on the list but never the less it is there now. With everything I have mentioned above this place is quite affordable on a weekend too! Yes, that’s right.
Even when they are fully aware that weekends are the time when all the IT people are looking for a getaway from there busy lives they have priced their stay at comfortable prices.
And trust me you’d want to stay there for longer once you visit. At least I wanted too.
7. Homestay feels
And last but not the least what more could anybody want if you could feel at home when in another city, another state, or another region. All the things above together would bring you at peace as soon as you come here. Easily making you want to come back soon and probably keep coming back.
That’s all for this one guys. Hope you have found the perfect place to stay when in Wayanad and if you have any other places in mind which can give this one a good competition do mention in the comments below. I would love to try it out.
