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!

This is a fantastic hostel! One if the few in India with a good hostel atmosphere... Facilities are good and dorms are nice and air conditioned. The greatest part are the staff that make sure that you feel comfortable and have a good time. They also put a lot of effort into understanding travelers needs. Looking forward to seeing more Zostels across India! Thanks for the great stay!

Hi David! It's great to have this kind of support and encouragement! We are as excited as you to spread the Zostel mantra across India. We're extremely glad that you found the rooms, ambiance and facilities great. We consider our guests to be our friends, because passionate travellers are the best people. So, thank you for that wonderful review and rating. We have Zostel in Jodhpur, Jaipur and Udaipur, with many more coming up! Hope to see you again very soon :) Cheers! Zostel


The perfect backpackers hostel. We stayed there for a week in June and had the best time. The guys that work there are just awesome. We preferred staying with them playing cards but when we went out they made everything easier by giving us directions and recommending places to visit. Zostel is actually the best thing about Jaipur.

Hi Hrafnkell, Wow thank you for that awesome review and rating! We're so happy that you found us to be the best part about the pink city. As we've mentioned before, we like our travellers to feel at home, it's the most important thing to us. So, your review must mean we're doing something right! We do hope you'll come on down soon and stay with us again. See you soon! Cheers! Zostel


Great place to meet other travellers and have a really fun time when back at the hostel - rare for India! A lot of the cleaning was superficial and the girl's bathroom had a weird smell. Also the water wasn't always working whilst we stayed there.

Hi Hannah, Thank you for your review and rating. Indeed, the best part of hanging out at Zostel is that you find other passionate travellers just like you, waiting to exchange awesome stories! Regarding the cleanliness and the water, we're sorry you had an unsatisfactory experience. We're making the necessary changes, we understand how important they are to make our travellers feel comfortable. We hope you'll visit us again, so we can give you an even better experience! Cheers! Zostel


Probably the best accommodation I encountered in India. I would choose a hostel from the Zostel chain whenever it is possible. The best wifi I found in India was here


Zostel was a real treasure in Jaipur! Not that far from Old City, but in a Quiet area where you can chill... The staff is really nice, they take their time to take care of you, and explain the city.. Nice common room, easy to meet other travellers

This is the most amazing concept I have ever came across..... We loved staying there... it took us back to our hostel days which r of course the best in any person's life. The place is amazingly fantastic... it didnt even take us seconds to call it ours.... we preferred staying inside rather than going out and party.... I would love to spend more days there.... cooolest place to stay and meet new people even. guyz out there ....dont av second thought...just book it!!
