This bright hostel painted with murals of cold penguins in woolly scarfs and a tie-dyed Jimmy Hendrix is perfectly positioned overlooking Shiv Sagar lake. It offers well-kept accommodation in two six-bunk dorms with large luggage lockers, and colourful, spacious doubles. There's a great rooftop cafe doing inexpensive breakfasts and thalis, and everything is good and clean, including the guest kitchen.
It offers the full array of budget travel services including onward travel arrangements, tours to Panna National Park and more. One of the best budget options in central India.
