About International Travellers' Hostel & Bistro


International Travellers' Hostel offers you a unique experience – here you get the chance to stay with a local family! We've combined the best of a modern backpackers' hostel—where you can meet like-minded travellers—with the warmth of a homestay; giving you the opportunity to get in touch with the culture of the country you're travelling in.

Our family-run hostel is located in our historical house owned by our family for over 5 generations. Once serving as the summer house of the Queen of Nepal, it later fell under British reign, to be eventually auctioned off to one of our great grandfathers. Today this multicultural home is a modern Youth Hostel offering you a beautiful relaxing space and an opportunity to meet other travellers.

Our aim is to facilitate your time in India by offering you the little things that make all the big differences on a trip. We want to offer you something that lasts longer than a mere journey – we want you to have everlasting experiences!

For the love of your taste buds we also offer a healthy and diverse 'ITH Bistro' food & drinks menu (Indian and western) catering from early morning till late at night. We prepare almost everything fresh with ingredients from the local market. Our recipes are toned-down to meet the 'non-Indian' taste buds, but of course we can spice things up for your real India adventure ;) Our latest addition is the Muesli Bar – eat a bowlful or as much as you can of your favourite cereals & fruits.

We are looking forward to welcome you in one of the world's oldest living cities!
