Let the hidden tribe grow!

There are some places which will linger in your memory, long after you have left. Orchards house is one such place. Nestled among the towering mountain ranges, secluded from the urban mess, this place can be reached by a delightful walk along cobbled pathways. The rooms with a private balcony provide a ridiculously beautiful view of the majestic Himalayas. The rooms are spacious, bathrooms are clean and the service prompt.
However, you should visit orchard house not for its rooms, but for the vibe that the place offers. The sunny afternoons can be spent either trekking to any number of nearby attractions, or just chilling and having wonderful conversations with very interesting people from all over the world. To top it all, Sonu makes the most delicious masala omelette and tea.
If you are visiting old Manali, I recommend all of you to stay at the Orchards house for a memorable experience. It's my happy place and I am sure it will become yours too :)
There is no place like a home away from home

Superb location - A little winding lane leads you to Orchard's House from the main road (just above Drifters' Inn). Snow capped tops visible all around and the surrounding greenery really livens up the place.
The company of strangers - Varun and Shraddha are good hosts. They are accessible and friendly and open to organizing and participating in festivities at night. Interacting with fellow hostelers is a lot of fun, especially when all together in the common area or someplace outside.
Value for money - This is a hostel, an extremely low-priced one at that, so you have to temper expectations likewise. There is warm water available at all times. Breakfast and dinner are available at low cost. Extra blankets are provided on request. There is a small library (which now has a Murakami as well) and games in the common area.
Reach, mingle, vacay.
Brilliant Experience - Must Visit

Stunning in its location, the overall experience here was terrific to say the least. From the view itself to the customer service, everything was top notch and couldn't be better. The room was spacious and clean and the service provided was prompt and polite. With great value for money and the perfect ambience to sit back and relax, everything about our time here was perfect. Cannot wait to return!

Awesome hostel!!! Even if you're not into partying this is a great place to stay while on holiday in Manali. They offer all the things you want from a hostel - plenty of hangout space, great home cooked meals... overall a really nice atmosphere.
Just stay here if you in Manali

Big beautiful room, clean bathroom, beautiful mountain view, surrounded by apple trees and blooming flowers. Sounds like perfect right? That's what we got when we stayed here. If that's not enough, it is also the cheapest hotel in Manali!
We love everything about this hotel. After coming back from rugged Spiti, it was a perfect place to stay and relax before heading home.
