This is an excellent budget option. The staff are friendly and welcoming and clearly work hard to make sure the hostel looks nice. They are knowledgeable about the area and will give straightforward and helpful information. Bathrooms are clean, common area cozy and dorms cozy and comfortable. This is an excellent budget option.
Great staff who went out of their way to make you feel welcome. Willing to help you with future travel bookings for the next stage of your trip in India. Enjoyed watching the cricket with the staff when I needed to relax. Allowed us to use the hostel while we waited for out night train to Jaisalmer. Great first experience of the Zostel chain will definitely be using them again this trip.

A little bit outside of Jodhpur but Anand is a great guy, taking care of all your needs. Everything is nice and tidy. Wasn't that busy in march because of shoulder season but this Zostel has the potential to be perfect with the right crowd. I definitely recommend this place!
We booked this hostel thinking about the laundry facilities that it mentioned. But it is far away the reality! The washer machine does not even have a door, and there is no dryer machine nor space for hanging the clothes! This hostel is far away from the city center, they have 3 showers and toilets for the hole floor (30 pax). And the internet does not worked so well either. We booked 3 days and only stayed 1.
Away from the main Fort but taxi will take you to the Fort for 60 Rupees. Arrived and staff were lying around in guest room and not too helpful. I might be old fashioned but staff should still be professional, I am finding this at most Hostels in India.
First of all, this hostel is located in out of nowhere. You can't even find restaurants, except one on downstairs, unless you take a tuk tuk, taxi or bus. Daytime staff couldn't care less about travelers and spoke poor English. The restaurant in downstairs tried to overcharge us by not giving the bill (just said 400 rupees), but when we asked for breakdown bill, it was 300. I don't understand what this hype about Zostel chain, but this one was really the worst of all. Cannot recommend.
Very good, just as every other Zostel is. Slightly out of town, but it is nice to be away from all the noise. Plus they order taxis into town for around 50 rupees
Very nice stay in a very very good dorm. Clean and comfortable !
Sympathyc, it's good value for money, little kitchen, great to cook by yourself if you can't eat no more spicy specialities ! Little far from center but very good and cheaper taxi service with the Apps of jodhpur, ask the team !
Pretty decent hostel and my first Zostel experience, nice atmosphere marred only by the manager having a drinking session with some friends who passed out in the room and snored all night! Bit of a pain to get to and from town.
This hostel attracts young travelers that follow lonely planet and want to meet others doing the same instead of thinking for themselves and actually exploring. When I was there the employee was getting drunk with his friends on the balcony and being extremely loud until 1am, then I had to wake him up off the floor at 9am to check out. Very unprofessional. Would never consider staying at another zostel.
All Zostels are very recommendable. Great facilities like washing machine and common kitchen.
It's a bit out of the way, but not too bad. It's a good hostel with good beds and a good vibe.
Amazing staff making this an unforgetable stay!

My stay here was the best stay of my whole trip in India. I was lucky enough to be one of the few people in the hostel and spend the time with the manager Sapan and his friend - we had a great time sightseeing and I can't wait to visit again! The fort is absolutely amazing!
Zostel Jodhpur is superb. However a word of caution - domestic Indians generally aren't used to travelers' hostels. Hence the lack of dorm etiquettes. The bunch that checked in on our last night probably mistook the concept to be a regular college students' hostel. They walked in at 10pm and we were already sleeping after a tiring day. Kept the lights on for long and were very noisy. They went out after an hour with the lights still on and came in late being noisy again.
Very friendly staff. Good value for money hostel. It's maybe a little far from the all the main attractions of Jodhpur but the bus picks up right outside the hostel and is cheap and quick. Anybody looking for a hostel in Jodhpur can't go wrong with this place.
Nice place but a bit far, even bus stop is just at the door. As in all Zostels, WiFi sucks. I liked the staff. I would stay again.
Staff were amazing, we had the best laugh of our whole trip to India here as the common room really makes everyone get to know eachother. The hostel was clean and comfortable and food from downstairs was really good. But it was the people that make this hostel so good - thanks to "Dream", "Blue Lotus" + "God" for taking us on a late nite Indian road trip for spicy chicken and chai! Action Jackson next time! Also, they ordered a sports channel for us just so I could watch a Man U match, amazing!!
Big room compared to Zostel Jaipur which made it better. Helpful staff but still, got ripped off on my way to the train station when the receptionist arranged my journey to go there. They always end up wanting their catch which is a bit sad / unfair for the travelers.
