Stops is a pit stop like none other on your Indian adventure. It is the first-ever exploration-oriented chain of travelers' hostels in India. Stops is where you refuel and equip yourself on your journey through India. It's a space where you get to meet fellow travelers eager to discover India. You can share, plan, guide and learn together while relaxing and having fun. It's about creating your India story that goes beyond the obvious. It's a space where you get to stay your way. Immerse yourself in our ever-expanding library; choose from the many documentaries and films on India; hang out on the lovely balconies and verandas; cook together in a fully-equipped kitchen; or just chill and do nothing-it’s your call! It's a space where you get to have fun, India style — from Bollywood nights to Indian cook-outs to local music events and vibrant festival celebrations! We at Stops have three key values at the core of what we do and we live by every single day: Discovery - Stops is for, of and by explorers! The passion to discover more and help other travelers do the same is the reason for our existence. We strive to provide multiple perspectives on each city with a sneak peak into its culture, history, art, social structures, food and people. Community - Doing things together is always more fun and dynamic. We put our heart and soul into fostering a warm and constructive social atmosphere. Everything about us is geared to bring travelers together enabling everyone to share ideas, stories and lives. Reliability - Consistently being good at what we do is essential to become a reliable partner. We strive to perfect this through transparent and rigorous processes and through a carefully curated mix of empowered people, unparalleled capabilities and customer centric high performance culture. We started our journey with the eternal city of Varanasi back in January of 2014 and are now expanding to many more exciting locations including Delhi, Kolkata and Jaipur. Come join us! We'll see you soon!
