Two years after being instrumental in making the first hostel of Kasol in Himalayas, I have decided to change my home and make a new policy of actions. Do not worry I am not moving out of Himalayas or Kasol. This is my home , and I feel belonged here for now. Don't ask long term plan, cause for a wanderer dedicated to road , death is the only longterm plan!
So my new bed and breakfast policy is collaborating with only single body local accommodations run by locals or people who have founded a home here like me. With God's grace , I have found a new amazing home here in Kasol and check this out
We have tents and dorms with a hot water shower washroom common to all of us and our guests. The tents have great bedding and million star views at night. When it's day it's all forest and high snow clad peaks of the grand Himalayas show 24 into 7!
And the best part of my place , that sets us apart from everyone ...
Wait for it...
WE HAVE DOGS ! NOT JUST ONE , MANY!
I must warn you , we only cater to people young and wild at heart, who has a sense for nature and belonging to the mountains. We enjoy doing nothing and still don't get bored. We enjoy both music of the birds and nature all around us and also party at night. We have deep discussions about things and you must have your own opinion. If you are a pampered tourist , please do not bug us. Only open for true wanderers, backpackers , nomads and solo people looking to make a family here in Kasol. If you are into traveling first time, seeking your true self or want to create something for the world , we are also best suited for you. We give amazing advices for any problems and we lead a happy , verrrryyyyy happy life !
Lastly, if you are still not sure if you are totally ready for our awesomeness then , come over for tea with us. We have amazing chef and the most delicious food you can imagine. Gobble up the dishes with a view of majestic mountains and talk to us! You are invited.
Lastly , why do you book Deep's bed and breakfast?
When you book a big franchise hotel , guesthouse or hostel, you are helping their owner to buy another car or house. When you book us, you are helping me to buy food to sustain my wandering life and also you are helping the locals here to buy clothes for their family and send their kids to school!
Think about it, and decide if if you want to be served by us and make a family here in Himalayas.

The himalayas , the dogs and we are waiting!
" How did you stay for so long in Thailand?" almost a lot of people ask. The prime query is , how did I manage with my finances for such long.
Well it is true , if you are planning to stay abroad in a minimal budget of a backpacker then you must find and use of some travel hacks. And this one is one of the most important travel hacks to learn to survive on road for long.
Taking up volunteering work while on the road in exchange of accommodation and food, can help you save a lot and sustain more time on road.
So in the island of Koh Phangan , I took up this volunteering opportunity in a party hostel called Nomad House. The boss or owner was Shine, a man from Croatia, who started this hostel 6 years back and made it a super hit. He earned my respect with all the skills he knows. He is till date the most hard working owner , I have ever seen. He literally knows everything, how to put the beds together, how to make the sheets, how to sweep and clean, how to fix washrooms and even door knobs and then even how to use all the internet to sell his hostel! He knew even how to make great Pizzas!
He was a mentor for me in my 20 days of service there, I learned so many skills , practical and handy for life and this industry, and can never thank him enough!
Next came my beautiful co-workers from France, US and Russia. All girls but they knew every work a man could do. We had amazing memories and great days everyday. Somedays even if work was hard , you never felt it, having them close and after work, all the fun and parties that we jumped in. From trying out mushroom shakes to getting drunk ( most nights) and dancing, it was all a treat.
The best part was during the famous full moon party, prices go soaring high in the island. Travelers have to pay a lot, but if you can find a work like me, you actually saved a lot of money.
Even if you are working you are not tied to the work for whole day. Generally , the work is around 5-6 hours a day and rest is free time for you to explore and enjoy. Not a bad deal when you are paying nothing and yet enjoying every thing the place has to offer.
When you work in a hostel, anyways, it is a great place of fun, meeting people from all around the world. You can gain so much knowledge plus make friends who can help you out in future to travel around the globe. Parties are more fun going out with this crazy group of people and the memories I made are priceless.
Add to all this , that my workplace was a party hostel with a pool, so you can imagine how crazy the nights went. There were no Good or Bad days, it was all Party days!
After having this experience , I urge most backpacker like me to work or volunteer in hostel , mostly when you are young , as the things you learn and experience is none to other plus you get free drinks , if you can handle the bar!
What can sound better?
Surely I will , now on every long backpacking trip try to savor this experience time and again!
