The hotel may not be the best looking one from its exteriors but truly impresses its guests with nice small cozy rooms, delicious home made food ans excellent staff. Its quite close to Ghum station and few miles ahead of the city center.
YES,as I said this place will make you fall in love with Darjeeling.We had visited on 1st October 2016 we stayed for 4 nights. It was such a wonderful experience that we are still kind of obsessed with our stay,we still cant think of staying anywhere in any part of country. PAHARI SOUL HOMESTAY was our first home-stay before this we dint had the concept of homestay and now we dont feel like staying in hotels. Coming to the review: Pahari Soul guarantees the best view of Mt. Kanchanjunga right from your bed - balcony. It guarantees you the best hospitality from Ms Shoyeta Chatterjee (the owner) and Sameer & Amrit who prepares food and provides services. They provide each and every basic amenities which you would need in a Hill Station like Geyser (24 hrs hot & cold water) (I told this because I heard a lot about water scarcity in Dareeling but never experienced it,thanks to Pahari Soul) Coffee Makers , Bed warmers , toilet accessories etc. Ms Shoyeta is the best host one can ever expect,she helped me to plan the entire tour in minimum budget and maximum comfort and fun. She had been entertaining me and replying my mails regularly ever since I had booking my train tickets (4 months ahead of our stay). She had arranged a WagonR of Mr Sameer (07431856900) who is such a nice guy - a perfect innocent pahari gentleman. Sameer was our guide (I wont use the word Driver as he is the owner) for entire 4 days. He took us to Kalimpong - Mirik - Darjeeling city Sightseeing and dropped us in Mirik. He even called us after dropping us in Station asking about our health and train delay. Pahari Soul being a homestay please dont expect a hotel kind of service here like you have to place your food orders much before eating time as they serve fresh food and they will buy it only when you order.They have their own discipline like serving the dinner by 9pm etc. & dont expect getting everything whatever is given in the menu card. But they will always serve you hot and fresh food. Pahari Soul Homestay is not exactly situated in Darjeeling Its situated at a very peaceful location 4km before Darjeeling at Dali (Dali Fatak) you will get Shared Taxis upto Darjeeling chowk bazar just below the homestay for Rs 10 only. SO finally it was a great experience staying there with such innocent lovely people - amazing view of entire Kanchanjung and the Darjeeling city. What Ms Shoyeta offers us at this price you wont get anywhere else in Darjeeling even if you pay a 1000 bucks more almost per day. Thanks Shoyeta Thanks Sameer we miss you guys a lot. And we are looking forward towards our next stay very soon. READERS PLEASE GO FOR THIS PLACE BLINDLY. YOU WILL LOVE IT. & DO ASK FOR SAMEER's CAR.
The name "Pahari Soul" is well suited for this place. It is the soul of Darjeeling pahar(hill) with Mt. Kanchenjunga at its best view, great hospitality and comfortable stay. Everything was worth money spent, infact more for the staff out there treat you like family and friends and not only mere guests. I am glad that I chose this place for our vacation and would recommend all to do so.
Well stayed in this Homestay for 6 nights this December. Originally chose the homestay because of its location. Kanchanjunga right from your bed. I am myself a travel agent and a well traveled person but still this was my 1st stay in homestay. All rooms have individual toilets. Rooms are adequately big and clean and has a simple decor. I had stayed in their executive room. The toilets have geyser which ensured hot water. The hotel is located in Dali which is around 2 km from Chaukbazar. It takes Rs.10 person by shared taxi to Chaukbazar. Taxi is available pretty much till 8 pm. You can get shared taxi to NJP / Siliguri as well from there but have to wait during the daytime. My suggestion , stay in Dali and visit at Darjeeling daily. Simple reason being this place is less crowded and lot clean in comparison to Darjeeling. The toy train track passes right infront of the homestay which is fun in itself. I had taken a meal plan package with the room. The food served was simple. The can make butter chicken, dal,roti, jeera rice, fried rice, soup, chow mein,Thupka. Anything beyond this they cannot make. Having said all the good part lets highlight the disappointment. It was really cold in Darjeeling and the room didnot have a heater. Even after taking the highest category room I was told for a heat blower I need to pay Rs.200 per night. The amount was not much considering the weather but ideally it should have been a part of the room and not an add-on expense. I had to pay Rs.200 per night for 6 nights. Also the meal plan is bit confusing. I was told over phone that for dinner I can order food worth Rs.500 per room per night as per the menu card. When I was going to order the food the staff said if I order Indian food then its fine but if I order chinese then I can order only two plates of chowmein. I had raised an objection on that and immediately he said no problem I will manage. Since it was off season there was no other guest. I had dropped an email to the owner with my concern about the food ordering but she did not reply back clarifying. The homestay is not a problem but you are at the mercy of the caretaker and you have listen to whatever he says. You have no place to complain in-case you have any issues. I am quite accommodating person and have great respect for people belonging to the hospitality industry so i did not want to enter into any sort of argument so I did not encounter any problem. But I am sure if I had objected on the food ordering system and the charges applied on the room heater things would have been different. The management should inform room heaters are not free or should include the cost in the room cost to avoid confusion.
as its not a hotel you dont expect much ....although they will try to help you but if you have never stayed in this type of serviced properties you will be disappinted.location is not good as its in the outskirts of darjeeling city ....but again it is therefore calm and quite.good for your budget.
