What customer say

  • I arrived 7.30am at the airport and Shalom Backpackers helped arranged an airport pick-up at a good rate. The caretaker came out to pick me up from the taxi, made me feel at home. I enjoyed yoga on my own at the garden and tea after at the restaurant — the panoramic view of Ganga is soothing after long transit. I don’t think many other places offer this beautiful view of Ganga river as Shalom Backpackers does. The boys at the frontdesk are always cheerful with their hellos, food and chai are delicious, the water is hot and bed is comfy. Even the cheeky visiting monkeys are kinda cute too!

    Breathtaking and calming view of Ganga

  • The location & setting of this hostel is just perfect – open area overlooking the Ganges, so quiet & close to the main bridge, markets, restaurants. Super comfortable bed, hot water, strong internet most of the time, free water refills & hangout cafe upstairs. We slept so well here!

    Perfect spot!

  • I recently stayed at Shalom during my trip to Mcleodganj. I was a little skeptical initially cause i had never stayed in a hostel before but now i feel it was one of the best decisions opted during the trip. The staff at the hostel were very cordial and helpful. Also the entire hostel was very well maintained. The rooms are provide great views and are well equipped with heaters and other basic amenities. The hostel also has a cafe that provides delicious meals at affordable prices. They also have laundry service available on request..

    Overall i really enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it to anyone visiting Mcleodganj.

  • Perfect quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of McLeod Ganj (but close enough to visit!) and near to lots of nice restaurants, cafes, yoga & meditation spots and easy access for hiking! The room is a very good size and has amazing views from the balcony over the valley. The staff are very kind and helpful – they arranged a complimentary Diwali celebration and meal for everyone staying at the hostel and also helped us with onward travel!

    Amazing peaceful location, big room, great views!
