About us

YOLO Backpackers Est. 2017

Quality experiences!


Yolo Backpackers was founded in the mountain ranges of Himachal with a simple goal in mind – to make budget-friendly accommodation options as ubiquitous as the majestic peaks that surround us. Our founder, saw the need for comfortable, affordable lodgings for backpackers and set out to create a hostel chain that would provide just that. Today, Yolo Backpackers is the premier hostel chain in the mountains, with locations in Manali, Jispa, Pulga (Parvati Valley)


Our mission is to provide a roof over the heads of budget-friendly travellers, without breaking the bank. We want to give them an authentic mountain experience, without sacrificing comfort. Plus we want to leave the mountain ranges as beautiful as they were when we arrived, but with a little less dirt on our boots.”


  • Hospitality: We want our guests to feel like they’re staying at their (much cooler) uncle’s place.
  • Sustainability: We’re all about preserving the natural beauty of the mountains, so we make sure to keep our carbon footprint as small as a hobbit’s.
  • Inclusivity: We welcome backpackers from all walks of life, whether you’re a budget-conscious traveler or a trust fund baby on a gap year.
  • Authenticity: We want our guests to experience the mountain ranges like a local, not a tourist.
