Little hostel with amazing staff and good vibe. A bit far from old city but it' s not a problem.

Hey there! Enjoyed reading your short and sweet review, and we're very much grateful for the great rating as well. We're glad you liked the hostel, the staff as well as the ambience. About our location, we're accessible via buses and soon the metro station will be at our footstep. However, soon we'll be shifting to a property that is at the heart of the city :) Hope to see you again! Cheers, Zostel

The manager at zostel Jaipur, Dev, was so helpful and knowledgeable that he not only helped me book three of my train journeys but also told me all the best places to go! Everyone visiting Jaipur should stay here.

Hello! What a lovely review and perfect rating you've left us - jumping over the moon with joy right now :) Thank you so much for the special mention to the staff, particularly Dev. We like to make sure that our guests feel like they're chilling with friends and not strangers. That's where the fun is, isn't it? :) Looking forward to your next visit to Zostel. We're also in Jodhpur, Udaipur, Agra, Varanasi, Delhi, Goa, Vadodara. Cheers, Zostel

Decent hostel with comfortable rooms and good vibes. Good place to meet fellow backpackers and the guy who runs it is a good egg. Not the best of locations as you need a rickshaw to get into town (in reality) and not all drivers know where it is (which is nothing new in India). Also the showers are plain baffling!

Hi! Thank you so much for the review and rating, we appreciate it. It's good to know you liked the rooms, the ambience as well as the staff. We're sure you must have met some interesting people here! About the showers, we'd always be happy to give you the instructions, just let us know. And you'll be happy to hear that we're soon shifting to the heart of the city. Till then, the metro station is going to be right at our footstep. See you again! Cheers, Zostel

Couldn't have asked for a better stay at the Zostel Jaipur! I celebrated my birthday there, and the lovely staff threw me a birthday complete with a cake! We felt so welcome the whole time, it really has a great family vibe. The rooms are nice, the staff are awesome, I highly recommend it! Thanks everyone!

No lockers in the rooms. Located very far from everything. The atmosphere and the staff are good though. They have a nice common area that helps a lot to interact with other travelers.

Hi there! Thank you for the great review and rating. It's good to know that you loved the atmosphere and staff at our Zostel and that you had a fun time in the common area. We do have lockers in a room that is just adjacent to the dorm room. You'll be happy to hear that we're soon shifting to the city centre. Looking forward to hosting you again and we'll give you an even better experience next time around! Cheers, Zostel

The place is a good hostel- more expensive than regular guest houses and dorms, and a bit removed from the center of the city, but there's a good vibe. however, I expected more.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hello there! Thank you for taking out the time to let us know about your experience. Our prices are very reasonable if you consider the service, the wide range of facilities and the activities that we hold for guests. Plus we place utmost importance on safety and cleanliness. We are soon shifting to the centre of the city, till then however, we are very accessible via tuktuk or bus and the metro station is going to be at our footsteps. Thanks, Zostel

Great place with lots of like minded travelers! Clean rooms and cozy common area. Only negative is that it's far from Jaipur's main area. Once the metro is complete, this shouldn't be an issue though!

Hello there! Glad to know you had a wonderful time with us, and you got to meet so many like-minded passionate travellers just like you. It's the best part about staying at Zostel! Happy you liked the common area and you found everything clean and cozy. About the location, the metro will be at our doorstep. We're soon shifting to the heart of the city, and we look forward to hosting you again :) Cheers, Zostel

Good place, clean and close to train station. Bathroom outside the dorm (good thing), laudry and breakfast. Jaipur is a dispensable city, but if you insist going, this is a good place to stay.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there! Thank you for highlighting the location and the cleanliness. We have bathrooms attached to the dorm as well as outside, always better to have more, isn't it :) Happy to know you enjoyed the facilities! About Jaipur though, we respectfully disagree. This city is bubbling with energy, life and culture...there's plenty to see, do and experience here. Come by again, and we'll show you Jaipur in such a way you'll fall in love :) Cheers, Zostel

Staff were great at Zostel, really helpful, it's a bit out of the way and there was no booze allowed when I was there which was a bit square but hopefully they have sorted that out now!

Zostel is a little tricky to find but it was worth spending time to get there. The rooms are clean, staff are first rate and there's a nice vibe in the communal area. The only problem was hassle from a very persistent rickshaw driver offering his services - i expect that but not for over 30 mins inside the hostel! Overall I enjoyed my stay there and will be returning in a few days time.

Hi there! Thank you for the great review and the rating. We're glad you liked the rooms, the staff and the Zostel vibe. About the location, we're on Google Maps and our official website has the coordinates, plus we're always happy to help with getting around the place. We apologize about the auto instance, we will be more than willing to get you a rickshaw/bus ride next time around, if need be. We look forward to hosting you again very soon...see you! Cheers, Zostel

The atomosphere was good and it's easy to meet fellow travellers. The facilities were good, there was even a washing machine! Wi-Fi was also good. It's really far from the train station or city centre, where the main sights are. Also, it's difficult to find, tuk-tuk driver had to circle back 5 times before finding the place. I stayed at 4 different Zostels in India, this one was more expensive than the rest, with 550 rupees a night for a dorm bed, I think it's somewhat over-priced.

Hi there! Glad to know you liked the atmosphere and you met a lot of interesting people here. We're happy you enjoyed the facilities as well. About the location, we'd always be happy to help with directions over phone/mail and our location is on maps/official website. Regarding the price, we provide a lot of facilities, clean rooms and an ambience. It is also the peak season. If you book earlier, there's an early bird discount :) Hope you will visit all other Zostels soon! Cheers, Zostel

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at thanks to Zubin's kindness and hospitality :) My first stay was during my birthday and Zubin brought out a birthday cake! He'd also organised firecrackers and sweets on the roof so everyone could celebrate Diwali together. The breakfast is great and a good way of meeting other travellers. The fact that there are extra toilets and showers outside, filtered water to refill bottles and lockers for valuables all added to the great stay. Thanks guys! :)

Hi there! First off, we hope you had a really great birthday with us! We love parties and cake and hanging out with awesome people, so thank you for celebrating with us! Good to know you loved the facilities and rooms, but we're even happier you liked the ambience. It's due to the amazing travellers who stay with us that the environment is always upbeat and fun. Do visit us again in Jodhpur, Udaipur, Delhi, Goa, Varanasi and Agra as well :) Till your next birthday! Cheers, Zostel
