Hi! Such a lovely and succinct review, thank you so much for that. And thank you for giving us the opportunity to host you, it is important to us that people who stay here feel like they are at a home away from home. Looks like you had a great time with the other travellers, and we hope you'll drop by again at our Zostels in Jodhpur/Udaipur/Agra! Cheers! Zostel

Despite average location, we wouldn't have stayed anywhere else! Tuk tuks are cheap and plentiful, so location wasn't an issue. Excellent, caring staff were always happy to help. Good communal area, laundry, solid wifi, nice kitchen. Staff assisted us in ordering delivery food for dinner after a long and sunny day of exploring. All in all, a great experience.

Nice place to stay when you are in Jaipur. Staff is very friendly and helpful and the bathroom quite spacious in the female dorm. They really do everything to make you feel comfortable. Only bad thing: Tuktuk drivers often dont know the place, so it might take a bit longer since they have to ask people on the way. Otherwise great!

Arrived in the middle of the night & was well welcomed. Good clean comfy bunks. Stayed in the female dorm. Staff were great. Included breakfast in a good communal area. Met some great people & lots of info from fellow travellers. All the Zostels are good in a much needy market. Stayed at three. Good hostels are hard to find in india. Well done!

Rahul and the rest of the team made a huge effort to make sure that everyone enjoyed themselves, One notable example was that I was given boiled eggs at 1am when not feeling to well, really appreciated it.

perfect hostel in Jaipur , very clean and tidy, friendly manager, complete facilities I can get everything I need. Maybe the location is a little far from the pink city, but it's easy to deal with. I found no.1 little white public bus on Hatwara Rd has a route to Hawa Mahal (cheap, Rs10, but crowd and takes more than 30 mins); also it can take a tuk tukt to MI Road ( more quickly, Rs60)

Great place to stay without burning up the pocket, nice way of meeting new people from different countries and sharing information, awesome for backpackers and students wanting an informal environment to stay in. Thanks Zostel and thanks Rahul for making the stay memorable.

Hostel World sent me an email to leave a review for Zostel days back, but I've enjoyed it so much that I am still here a week later! First off, the management here is amazing. Rahul will help you sort out anything you need and also connect you with other travelers within the hostel. He connected me with two Indians traveling from the south, and we shared a rickshaw and explored the pink city together.. The hostel amenities are perfect. The internet connection is the best I've had in India.

Hi Mark! A week, eh? Awesomeness, thy name is Mark! Thank you so much for this superb review, we are truly touched that you enjoyed your stay so much. Zosteling is as much about travel as it is about the people, and we get the best people passing through our doors. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to host you. Do come again! (And glad you liked the Wi-fi, we've the fastest connection in the city :D ) Cheers! Zostel

This hostel is defintely one of the best places i have stayed so far in India. And that guy at the reception is like one of the coolest guys i have ever met. =). Very friendly and helpful staff! They will help you with any questions you have, like planning your trip around town. In the morning they offer you a lovely breakfast for like 1 euro. I can really recommend to anyone staying in this hostel. Cheers.

Absolutely amazing hostel! I highly recommend staying at all of the Zostel chain. I was having some challenges in India with hostels being helpful until I made it to a Zostel. The staff was exceptional at both that I stayed at and helped turn around my time in India.

When it's raining, it's not very convenient to take a shower because the way to the bathroom is not covered.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi Ziao, Thank you for the review and rating you've given us. Actually, we have put a little covering over there, for the way to the bathroom. We will definitely try to address this issue. Thank you for the suggestion, we hope you'll visit us again so that we can given you an even better experience next time around! Cheers! Zostel

If you are a young and energetic backpacker coming to Jaipur, Zostel is the right place to stay. Zostel is not far from station, it offers you a peaceful atmosphere. All the facilities are great, the rooms are clean, and the caretakers are very sweet and helpful.They are more like your friend than a hostel manager. They are willing to help you on everything, and held parties on terrace from time to time, we drank and danced with other cool customers. It was a wonderful experience.
