Travelling has become more than a hobby now. For few it is about passion, while for some it is about the much-needed break from the chaotic city life. But as travellers plan their holidays more often, it becomes very important to aim for a pocket-friendly travel itinerary. Opting for hostels and sharing dormitories with other fellow travellers is not only cost-efficient but also a boon for solo travelers who often end up with travel companions and like-minded buddies to spend their holidays with. The idea of hostels has increased and is gaining popularity among the youth who don't mind sharing their room with strangers. With the travel culture flourishing, we thought of curating a list of 5 famous hostels in India for a smooth stay experience.
