Just one word "Zossumm" I stayed here for two days and trust me there aint any room for dullness here. It was full and I am glad I booked it in advance. We played. We ate. We roamed. We explored. We were mesmerizied by tge view of sunset from the balcony We sang. We partied until the dawn. All in chronological order. Special thanks to Anand for being so sporty and making our stay enjoyable and for booking all the cabs. Vikram, for all the arrangements. You guys are "Zossumm" and Vikram

I was doing a solo Jodhpur trip and I was really excited about staying at Zostel as I had heard a lot of good reviews about the place. I stayed at Zostel for 1 day and AMAZING would be an understatement. Everything was perfect. The people in charge, the cleanliness, the facilities, the rooms, the views, no hassles irrespective of the time you arrive or checkout, extremely helpful staff - basically everything! Zostel is the first hostel chain in India and one must experience staying in a hostel

Far from the city center, need to take an auto to get there. Young staff keeps blasting cartoon shows on the PC without caring if travelers are watching the TV.

We could not find the hostel (no sign outside). The toilets and showers are not the cleanest. The doors of 2/3 showers did not close properly. When we went to the reception, we could not find any members of the staff. There was s sign, saying that we could call a number when the reception was unoccupied. We tried that several times. Until 11 am, no staff. The copies of our passports laid on the desk, unoccupied. When we checked out one day sooner, no one seemed to care. Very bad service.

Zostel Jodhpur was far away from anything, the staff was most of the time not available, and the facilities were really not impressive. The best thing was the ambience with the pther backpackers!

Quite away from the sites, nearer the airport. Not the place you want to go if you want to sleep, walls are paper thin and can here everything. Seems to be full of Indian staff but only one of them speaks English so frustrating trying to ask questions. Also staff get coming into my room all hours of the morning and waking me up talking. Also when I checked out I was told to pay more then the price and booking I made on hostelworld. Very bad this doesn't get my vote

I wasn't overly happy with my stay in zostel. The hostel is located very far from the centre of the city, the staff never seemed to be around and facilities were average. Also there was a completely dead atmosphere in the hostel perhaps this was just due to time of year I'm not sure. I wouldn't stay there again.

A friendly, welcoming hostel with good facilities. Rooms are good and secure, and staff always happy to help you with any questions you may have. Location isn't great, but easy enough to get tuk tuk in to the old town.

Hi there! Thank you for the great review and rating. It's amazing to know that you loved the hostel, the facilities, the rooms, the staff and everything. As you mentioned, our location is not exactly at the city centre but it's just a 5-minute ride away. We're also 12 minutes from the mighty Mehrangarh. Hope to host you again soon! Cheers, Zostel

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.

The guy from the reception truly does its best to keep everything running smoothly. He's very helpful and works tirelessly to make you feel comfortable. Zostel Jodhpur's only downside is its horrible location. A taxi does the trick though, they are not expensive at all.

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!
