Artpackers.life is an art hostel - the first of its kind in India. Our concept works around the fusion of travel and art where backpackers and creative souls share the same roof. Equipped with an outdoor communal area surrounded by greenery, we are focussed on creating an creating an environment conducive to exchange of modern day philosophy and ideologies, and positive conversations. Artpackers.life occupies a heritage building from the 1930’s, which was once used by the Police, spices office, radio station (All India Radio) and a primary school.
We are two friends from school who have done a fair bit of backpacking ourselves and are quite passionate about the hostel culture - which led to the creation of artpackers.life. We are both mostly at the property and are assisted by a manager and a couple of helpers to run the show. There is no hierarchy in our property and everyone is treated as friends. We are focussed on service - trying to cater to the requirements of all individuals to the extend as is feasible within our limits and give our guests that "feel of belonging".
My days in art.packers were really nice, though was low season so I didn't have too much things to do, all the staff member were super nice with me, the hostel is clean and beautiful and they supported me in everything that I needed. But in may/June probably will be raining a lot. So I would recommend you don't travel there in the monsoon. But was really great experience and I recommend the hostel 100%!
