Such an easy going hostel, clean with welcoming friendly staff. Not only are they quick to save your ass when you leave your watch behind (massive thanks again) getting it whisked across town. Also setting up walking tours, a plentiful breakfast that changes type daily and an all round can do fun place. Great for letting you chat or allows peace and quiet if you need!! All round 5 star stay.

This hostel is set in a quiet shaded area. Within easy reach of convenience store shops and restaurants. The hostel is well run with very helpful and informative staff. Rooms and communal areas are clean and relaxing. It has a really nice vibe. If ever I return to Bangalore it would be high on my list.

I stayed at Locul Uptown for 28 nights as a part of a programme from university and never did I feel like I was away from home. The cozy atmosphere and facilities were so homy and the staffs were super friendly and helpful. Grace treated me like her younger sister and I can say that I’ve made lasting connections during my stay here. They also help you get around the city and give recommendations to make your exploration of Bangalore hassle-free. Remember to talk to the staffs if you’re curious about the city, they’re always happy to help. There is no doubt to if I’d choose to stay here again during my future visits to Bangalore. I’ve been loculised and I’d highly recommend everyone to do so too:)
