We are a new hostel and hence to find us you would need help with directions! The most prominent land marks near the hostel are Kerala Café in Bhelupur and Bhelupur Water Tank. These would help you locate the hostel.

You need to tell the auto/ taxi driver to take you to the Bhelupur Water Tank (Hindi Translation: Bhelupur Paani Tanki) and then to the LG store (Balaji Consumer Durables) right next to the Bhelupur Water tank.

With the LG store on your left, 10 meters ahead of the LG Store is a cobbled lane to your left, right before the point where the road is turning to the left. Enter that lane, it seems narrow but all cars can come inside with ease. Follow the street till the end (around 100 metres - will have to navigate minor lefts and rights).

We are the corner yellow coloured bungalow on your right with multicoloured walls.

You can also locate us on Google Maps. Here is the location on Google Maps:
