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.

Hi! Thank you for the great rating and review. You got exactly what Zosteling is about...fun and young people making travel more than just seeing places...making it an experience, an affordable one. We're glad you had a good time and that you found the place and staff great. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to host you. We hope to see you at our other Zostels in Jodhpur/Udaipur/Agra :) Cheers! Zostel

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 Oscar! WOW WOW WOW, best review ever! Thank you so much, mate. Makes us feel happy that our guests feel like we're a home away from home, as that is exactly what we're aiming for. Rahul is always here to assist you with anything you need, so please drop by our Zostel again and again and again :) 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.

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.

The stuff was extremely helpful with anything. We loved our stayed there. The only complaint might be the location, you need to take a rickshaw to get to the city center. But it is worth for the great atmosphere in the hostel.

The staff is amazing! They are so funny and ready to help whenever needed. Location is a bit far but not too bad.

Hi Karen! Haha we're glad you think we're funny! Our sense of humour is one of the few perks of staying at Zostel, eh? :D Thank you for the great review and rating. We're glad you found the staff helpful and fun. As for the location, we try to maintain a balance between being close to all the attractions yet maintain the chilled-out vibe at our hostel :) We hope we'll get the opportunity to host you again at our other Zostel in Jodhpur and Udaipur. See you soon! Cheers! Zostel

We had a great time here; a/c room was a much needed break from hot weather (although we never figured out how to make it less cold, should have asked!). Wicked common room space with lots of seating, breakfast available for 70 rupees which isn't bad, and the main guy we always asked questions to was really sweet and helpful. Would recommend!

Hi Ellie! We're so happy that you had a great time with us. Thank you for that great review and rating! We're always here to help the people Zostelling with us. And yes, the common room is quite wicked! :) We hope you'll stay with us again at our other Zostels in Udaipur and Jodhpur. And quite a few coming up soon. See you shortly! :) Cheers! Zostel

Very young people in charge, they care about the place depending their mood.. friendly, but incompetent. Information regarding opening times was completely wrong (Amber Fort opens at 8am, not 11am!), gladly we didnt follow their advice. Rooms and beds okay, cleaning so so. Caters more to young travelers with party needs.. if you wanna sleep early and actually see something of the city, bring earplugs or find another place.

I thoroughly enjoyed my four nights here. As somebody who has stayed in several of the top-rated European hostels I can say that this place measures up. They have done a fantastic job of creating a safe and happy environment to make you feel at home in Jaipur. Rahul and Sapan are top blokes and are on hand 24/7 to help with any little problems that come up. They really to go out of their way to help their guests out. Especially recommended for solo travellers as a good place to meet new people!

What a great find in Jaipur! Great staff, great facilities, safe and secure. I felt welcome as soon as I walked in and it was a great place to meet people. They have laundry facilities, a nice outdoor area and they can organise tuktuks for you if you need.

The only hostel to stay at in Jaipur. These guys actually made my trip, the hostel is safe, friendly and the staff always go out of their way to make sure you are as comfortable as possible, including buying the beers, booking bus tickets and organizing day trips. The aircon works, the bathrooms are clean and there's cold drinking water, you're not going to get much better in India. Thanks guys!
