Nutz Backpackers




The Review

Nutz Backpackers is just great! You would not expect to stroll a bit outside the tourist center around the Golden Temple into a hidden side street of the busy bazaar and find a modern and spotlessly clean place full of international-style hostel solutions such as a fully equipped kitchen with free tea and coffee and a common area packed with board games.

The Location

The hostel is located in the southern part of central Amritsar. While the train and bus stations are rather far from here, you will be in walking distance of all the most important sights of the city. First and foremost, the Golden Temple is only twenty minutes on foot from here. Secondly, Jallianwala Bagh, the Partition Museum and Gurudwara Santokh Sai, can all be reached in about forty minutes. As you will find yourself in the middle of a bazaar here, you will be spoilt with choices for food and drinks if you don't mind eating at street stalls. If you do, many restaurants are around the Golden Temple. However, while Amritsar in general is rather safe, it's probably better not to walk in the area of the hostel after 9 p.m.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel only offers two rooms, but both of them can accommodate up to eight guests. The rooms are spacious and come with lockers, and the beds have their adjacent electronic sockets. Towels are provided free of charge. Internet is fast and can be accessed all around the property. The bathrooms are outside the dorms but are really clean and modern, and there is plenty of toilet paper and hand-washing liquid provided.

Common Spaces

The best part of the hostel is the quality of the common areas. There is a chilling room with mattresses, sofas, and pillows that offers a number of board games, books, and a TV. Moreover, there is a spacious, modern, and fully equipped kitchen. You can help yourself here to drinking water, tea, and coffee free of charge and if you prefer to do your own cooking, a fridge and stoves are provided. Moreover, there are oil and spices for you to use as well. To eat, you can sit outside the kitchen in the eating area at one of the many tables. The whole hostel is tastefully painted and decorated with great design.


You will surely enjoy Nutz Backpackers if you are longing for Western standards for an Asian price. You will really feel that you are getting the best value for your money here and all the surprise extras will just make your stay even more memorable.
