Centrally located right next to the Darjeeling Railway Station, our hostel is perfect for travellers seeking an affordable stay equipped with basic amenities.

We have converted two rooms (ON THE 5th FLOOR) of the family residency above Hotel Kailash to give you an experience that is the Petrichor Backpacker’s Hostel, to provide travellers a space to rest while in Darjeeling yet have walking access to the town, restaurants, cafes, shops, movie theatre, railway station and the Mall in Chowrasta.

The space
Flanked by the full range of the mighty Kanchenjunga in the line of vision and the bustling local experience below, our rooms are comfortable and cosy. We are also proud of the fact that they have been lovingly restored with old furniture and only reclaimed materials since we are earth loving people!

Guest access
-Both rooms have an attached bathroom that is clean and sanitary. Room 2 has a geyser and Room 1 also has a small one to suffice for warm baths.
-Guests who prefer to cook their own food have full access to the kitchen. We only ask that they request for shopping bags from us since we abhor single use plastic anything! Also keep the kitchen clean.
-Please use water sparingly.
-If guests prefer catering, meals have to be ordered in advance since our help does not live in the premises.
-All guests will be provided boiled and filtered drinking water. We allow mineral water bottles only in special cases and by the gallon. Kindly refrain from bringing single use pet bottles to our premises.



We hope you have a great time in Darjeeling and our home. Thank you for your kind support and understanding of our sustainable practices.

Other things to note
Since we are located on the fifth floor please look for porters around the railway station in case you have heavy luggage.
The main gate closes at 9pm and opens after 7 am, kindly let us know in advance incase you are arriving late or going out early to avoid inconvenience.

Location

Darjeeling, West Bengal, India

The neighbourhood is fairly populated but centrally located. On a clear day, one can view the spectacular Mount Kanchenjunga in full range. The key feature about our backpacker hostel is its location which is central and close to the town area, which means it’s very convenient for guests.
