Amazing living place for backpackers


We went Cherrapunjee in last August 2014 for a adventures trip. We were 3 backpackers looking for a decent place to live. Then after a lot of go ogling we found By The Way. I called to owner Hyprit and booked the room Hyprit is so helpful and we booked a room for Thursday, but we reached on Friday due to delay in train, we called again to Hyprit in evening and confirmed that we are not coming today, he said politely Don't worry Buddy, come tomorrow, I will vacant room for you and he didn't charge to us for the day we were suppose to reach By The Way have rooms as well as dormitory. Dormitory is not as like others 10 beds in a room, but only 3 beds with all facilities. The owner helped us to plan a tour and arrange taxi for us If you are a backpacker and want to visit Cherrapunjee then don't miss By The Way.

Best place for bag-packers! Economical


This is the best bag packing place that I have come across in the recent time. The charge is only Rs 250 per person per night! The rooms are really good and clean given the price. But then you also don't get any other amenities, which is fine considering it is a bag packing hostel. Also the washroom/bathroom is at an outhouse outside the hostel. This is the only pain The owner Heprit is a colorful guy. He has his house just next to the hostel he so passionately runs. He'll provide you all the assistance he possibly can (including a hand drawn map of the cool places one can visit in Cherrapungii). He also has two mountain bikes which he lends to the people staying at his hostel. You pay whatever you feel like for this service, which says a lot about his character I would highly recommend staying here if you are travelling alone or with like minded adventurous friends!
