Blue Jay and the Blue Chicks!
Share our space and your life with us
Blue Jay, a budding chain of budget and comfortable backpacker hostel stays, set up in July 2018 in the Rishikesh region of India with the determination to reinvent the idea of backpacker hostels. Our hostel has been named after a native North American bird, Blue Jay, which is a free-spirited migratory bird that loves to hop and explore the world just like us and our travellers.
Laxman Jhula is 800 meters away, the International Patanjali Yoga Foundation is 300 meters away and Ram Jhula is 2.3 km away, while Triveni Ghat is 5 km from the hostel. The nearest airport is Dehradun, 22.6 km from the hostel.
Blue Jay is a community space where travellers from all over the world stay and meet.
Our mission is to provide travellers with all the comfort they need to make their travel hassle-free and easy.
When you are tired after wandering all day long, Blue Jay is your home where you can relax, chat, read books, interact with other travellers, a place where you can have a good time and feel at ease. It is your home away from home.
As a travel hostel, our priority is to make our guests feel comfortable and welcome, help them to know and explore our country in the best possible way.
Being a team of ardent travellers, we understand the importance of a personal touch when staying in a place where everything can seem strange.
Your journey begins with a smile here. We make every effort to provide you with the best of our services.

Life in Blue Jay: Experience Rishikesh like never.
When you hear the word hostel, you tend to let go of the luxuries a hotel provides but our budget hostel is a catch for the facilities it offers. Our team makes every effort to make your stay memorable by helping you plan your itinerary and organizing social activities like sun rise treks, adventure sports, dance and music sessions, evening prayers, Ganga Aarti, jam sessions, movie nights, family dinner, city tours, yoga sessions and much more.
Blue Jay has been designed to maximize comfort from the point of view of a traveller’s daily life.
Each part of our hostel from our lobby, common area, floors, cafe and terrace has an individual meaning. Spacious yet cosy common areas armed with multiple amenities, hangout lobbies on each floor with beautiful street view, common washrooms on each floor, rooftop café and a terrace with a breath-taking 360-degree view of the town. Rooms and dormitories are impeccably designed with bunk beds and double beds, comfortable mattresses, sheets, clean blankets, hot shower, wardrobes etc. There is air conditioning in all rooms with power backup at all times in the property. The building itself is a modern and durable structure.
There’s a 24/7 reception, TV in all private rooms, CCTV camera and a lift that makes all our floors easily accessible.
Our brainchild: Café, The Nest!
Café the Nest is the cherry on top of our hostel. Our rooftop cafe has a breath-taking panoramic view of the Himalayas. We serve both Indian and continental cuisine, vegan options, and add a personal touch to your food by customizing it as per your diet. You can enjoy family dinners, live music sessions and other games and activities while having tea or stuffing yourself with a paratha.
