AAO Hostels is built upon a simple idea of backpacking and provides a sociable accommodation where travelers rent bunkers or beds in dormitories for a lesser price. Hostels ensure that travelers are able to find themselves at home no matter where they go and belong to a diverse community of like-minded people. AAO Hostels started with just one hostel in Koramangala 2 years ago. Being selected in the Idea2PoC and given Grant in aid, enabled them to grow their business and expand from one to hostel to now a chain of hostels. AAO is now identified as a brand for back-packers. The Startup is also catering to boosting Tourism in the State by way of providing easy and economical stays to tourists.
