Director's Message

Parveen Sawhney

I built it. From the start, I used the finest materials including teak wood for the furniture and detailing throughout, and quality silks for the room finishings. It’s as good as I could make it. Then, I’m obsessive about maintenance. When something breaks, it’s fixed; signs of wear, it’s replaced.
Since we opened in 2004, I have managed every aspect of the hostel’s development and operations.
I realized early on that a hostel is not just about bricks and mortar but about ambience, atmosphere and service; above all, service. We aim for an environment which is informal, sympathetic and relaxing. Our staff are schooled to be attentive but not intrusive and, of course, there’s always that charming Thai smile.
So you are free to come and go as you please; to do what you want, when you want. At day’s end, you will find Sukanya a welcome, peaceful retreat from the relentless drumbeat .
Where you need information or help – just ask. Our mission is to make your stay unforgettable. We want you to return to Kota with your relatives/colleague and make our hostel your second home.
If you have any questions about Sukanya generally you can reach me directly on
I will look forward to meeting you.

"Two years at Sukanya just went by very effortlessly, every other problem of ours was taken care as family”

"I was always scared of the life in Kota and how the warden would be, but the staff here at Sukanya was so polite and generous, how 3 years stay in Kota and Allen slipped by”
