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


we only stayed one night but really liked the place. nice and clean, neice helpful staff people as far as we can tell. close to the airport!

Greetings! Great to read such a nice and positive review and we appreciate the perfect rating as well. Although we're sad we got to host you just for one night, we're glad you liked the staff, the location as well as the neat and clean interiors. Hope that our paths will cross again in the near future. Looking forward to seeing you soon :) Cheers, Zostel


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


Very vibrant hostel. Clean, safe and inexpensive. Cubicle toilets makes it easier. AC n wifi are great. Restaurant on premises to order food. Staff r great. Recommended for all, but remember it's a hostel, not a hotel

Props to you for mentioning the staff and the wide range of facilities too. Looking forward to another visit from you. Come by 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.

Hi there! What a great review and rating, thank you so much. Good to know that we could live up to your expectations and we're looking forward to hosting you again already. We'd like to express our gratitude to you for highlighting the ambience, the staff as well as the service. Here's hoping that your future experiences with us are ten times more amazing. See you! Cheers, Zostel


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.

Hello there! Thank you so much for letting us know about your experience. So great to know that you liked our exceptional service. Anand just loves socializing with the great guests who visit us; we consider you guys as friends first :) We can also help you with hitching a tuktuk or bus ride to the city in case you should require it. Do visit us again! Cheers, Zostel


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!

Hi! Thank you for taking out time to let us know about your experience. We're glad you found our place to be clean and tidy and that you liked the staff! About the location, yes, we're not in the centre of the city but we are accessible via public transport and tuktuk. Do visit us in the peak season and we're sure you'll have an even more amazing time. Anand would be happy to host you again. Cheers, Zostel


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.

Hi! First off, let us clarify a couple of things. Our washing machine is completely in working condition. Few washing machines in India have a dryer, and since we get plenty of sunlight, we don't need one. There is a clothes' stand on the terrace to hang clothes. Our hostel is lesser than 12 mins from the city, so we're accessible but not in the centre of chaos. We understand that might not suit your preferences. Sorry about that. Thanks, Zostel


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.

Hi! Thank you for letting us know about your experience. We might be young but that does not mean we are not professional. We only visit a guest's room if we are having a conversation with them, otherwise we do not encroach on their spaces. A staff member might sometimes sleep in one of the dorms if the other guests in the dorm are okay with it or they are alone and need some company. We did not mean to cause any inconvenience. Thanks, Zostel


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

Hello there! It's so great to know that we could live up to your expectations when it comes to Zostel. You rightly said that though we might not be at the very centre of the city, we are away from the chaos and pollution. We're always happy to help travellers hitch a tuktuk too. Looking forward to hosting you again :) Cheers, Zostel


Very nice stay in a very very good dorm. Clean and comfortable !
