Roadhouse Jaipur – An Affordable Backpacker’s Hostel In The Pink City

LOCATION

Located at a posh colony of Chomu House, the hostel is easily accessible. From Railway Station the distance is only 5 km. The Auto Rickshaw will not charge more than INR 60. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. Major areas like Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Johri Bazaar, Mirza Ismail Road (aka M.I. Road) are within 3 km radius from the hostel. I personally loved the location! I am a person who is fond of eating at fancy cafes while I am travelling. Two of my favorites are Anokhi Café and Jái Pour which are just walking distance from the hostel. I could easily get an Auto/Rickshaw right outside the hostel.



THE HOSTEL

At dirt-cheap price you cannot get anything better than this. Roadhouse will provide you a sense of home. The hostel greets you with yellow walls and blue gate, and a verandah that looks like a road. One side of the road leads to the common room which is just like my living room (a lot more quirky though) where I sit all day and watch movies; the other side leads to the reception and entrance of the rooms.

Pretty much.

The common room: Feels like home.

The basement is what they call the ‘chill zone’. Before going to bed almost everyone goes downstairs for a match of pool, play-station or foosball. I did too. Ha! But obviously lost. Ha! Ha!

All day, all night. @ Chill Zone

The terrace is extremely peaceful but could be made more beautiful. How? Add some more lights. 😛 I don’t know if it’s only me or everybody is mad about lights. Other than this, the minion wall is just too cool!

THE ROOMS

The rooms are exceptionally good. Every dorm is huge and spacious. The hostel ensures that the dorms are cleaned on a daily basis. The washrooms are clean and well-maintained. A lot of hostels focus only on the common area compromising on the rooms believing that people only come there to crash in. I have never said this about any hostel but the best part about Roadhouse Hostel was the quality of the rooms.

THE STAFF

The staff adds a charm to this hostel. A lot of them are new in Jaipur and hence, they don’t know much about the city. But they will take all the pains to gather information for you. They are extremely friendly and helpful. One can always spot Deepak and Rohit having a big smile on their faces.

BOTTOM LINE

Nowhere in Jaipur can you find an accommodation so cheap and so comfortable. I highly recommend it for budget travelers.

Its amazing to see so much variety in accommodations nowadays in India. This backpacker’s hostel looks so unconventional, specially in Rajasthan, where one would usually find heritage hotels. But now there’s something for every taste and every budget, nearly all across the country.

It’s really nice that it has a common room and “chilled zone” to play! I always look for those facilities when I choose accommodations. The place looks lovely as well.

This place seems fun! And sort of childish! I’ve only stayed in one hostel, I was too shy to talk and socialize so I didn’t really enjoy it! But I think I would give it another shot!
