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.

Hi, thank you for highlighting the staff and the spacious rooms. You seem to have misinterpreted a couple of things- we are not the kind of people who cheat customers just to make a quick buck. At night time, the prices go up and this is something that is not under our control. It is the drivers who have this rule, and it has been around for ages. Please do not assume that our staff was behind this. We appreciate the rest of your review though. Thank you, Zostel

Nothing is within walking distance - which means taking an auto/tuk-tuk ride everywhere. You can get a lock from the front desk to put your valuables in a locker and it seems safe enough. The atmosphere is ok, a lot of young people but it doesn't have that buzz that I've experienced in other highly rated hostels. I actually think this is due to the fact that the place itself (outdoor area, rooms, bathrooms esp) aren't very nice. And here's a warning - there's no hot water. Brrr.

Hi! Our location is actually an asset because we're within 12 minutes of Mehrangarh, Umaid Bhawan and the city centre.Plus we're well-connected with the public transport, yet not in the midst of all the hustle.You just need to switch on the heater for hot water, staff would have been happy to help.We maintain the communal areas well and have received 100+ reviews praising the vibe!We're sorry you didn't feel the same, hope to host you again so we can give you a better experience. Cheers, Zostel

Clean and comfortable dorm and common area but really far from the fort and town center. Good place for meeting like minded travelers.

Hi! Thank you so much for highlighting the cleanliness, comfort and ambience. We always get to host some interesting people, so it's great to know you liked it :) About the location, we're lesser than 12 minutes from Mehrangarh fort, Jaswant Thada and Umaid Bhawan. And we're well-connected through public transport as well! We hope you will visit us again :) Cheers, Zostel

Another great Zostel. Excellent communal space, nice balcony and chilled atmosphere. The restaurant below is tasty and sends your food up (still continuing my search of India to find someone who can fry an egg properly though!) Staff are awesome, especially Sapan - you are a legend my friend! Little far away but excellent regular buses so not a problem. Highly recommend.

Hi! Always great to see a familiar face, glad you loved our Jodhpur Zostel. Good to know you liked the atmosphere, the cool balcony, the staff and the food. About the location, we're lesser than 15 minutes from the main attractions and well-connected via public transport. About the egg...hehe, we're a little cuckoo about making it a full fried one :) Do visit us again and we'll make sure that you have the best fried egg of your life! Cheers, Zostel

We booked here because we had a great time in Zostel in Jaipur, but we were really disappointed ! Except for one guy, the staff was not nice, they spent their time watching bollywood movie in the common area (so nobody except them in this area !!), they didn't talk... The location was really far from the center. The accomodation were not clean at all and the rooms were really small... I will not recommend this hostel to anyone, because it was not jice and way to expensive !!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi! We're sorry for the unsatisfactory experience that you had. Regarding the staff watching a movie in the common room, we apologize for the incident, it won't happen again. We usually keep the hostel spic-n-span, we'll look into this. About the location, we're lesser than 15 mins away from Jaswant Thada, Umaid Bhavan and Mehrangarh fort, yet there's none of the mad bustle in our area. We hope you will give us another chance to host you and give you the experience you deserve! Cheers, Zostel

Finally a legit hostel in India! Keep it up guys (but please skip the servant-attitude, backpackers don't like that)

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi! Good to know you had such a great time at our Zostel, and thank you for calling us a legit one :) About the servant attitude, we're unsure what you mean. Each and every member of our staff is extremely valuable to the operation and they are treated so. However, we apologize if you felt any discord. Do stop by again and come Zosteling with us soon :) Cheers, Zostel

The best place to be in when you are in Jodhpur. I had heard a lot about this chain of hostels from other travelers, so i took a decision of trying them out in Jodhpur, I must say that these guys are doing an awesome job. Clean European style washrooms with very powerful showers , free and very speedy Wi-Fi. #LoveZostel

Hi! It's great to know that you had such a wonderful time with us, we're so happy you decided to take the word of other guests who've gone Zosteling before :) Good to know you loved the clean rooms/washrooms and the facilities as well. #LoveZostel is our favourite hashtag forever and ever! :) Do stop by and visit us in Jaipur, Udaipur, Delhi, Agra, Goa and Varanasi as well. Cheers, Zostel

To start... We arrived, entered the hostel, walked around, shouted.. nobody came.. Security 0! I had to enter the rooms and find the guy that was supposed to be in the reception sleeping.. Then he said as it was 2AM we have lost our room.. It was only reserved til midnight.. I don't know how right he is since it was paid, and it says the reception is open 24h. Then, we went to that disgusting toilet and on the way back to the room i see a HUGE RAT, so, if you go there.. i wish you luck:)

Perfect stay in jodhpur. Lovely helpfull people working there, nice atmosphere. Not in the city center, but i think that's a plus, because you stay out of the chaos, and a rickshaw ride is cheap. I would definitely recommend this place, as well as all the other zostel places in India!

Hi! Glad to know you had a perfect stay with us, always makes us happy to hear that :) It's great you loved the staff and atmosphere. You're completely right about the location as well. It's close enough to everything worth seeing, but you can come back and relax after a tiring day as well. Hope you will visit us again soon :) Cheers, Zostel

Zostel was a decent place to stay in Johdpur; good value for money, very clean, comfy beds and decent common area to meet people. However, it's about 10 minutes from the city centre, where tons of hostels/hotels are located, the wifi is dodgy and the staff were uncommunicative and unhelpful. I'd recommend it if you're not worried about paying a little extra for ricksaw rides to/from the city every day - they'll try to scam you but you shouldn't pay more than 80 for a trip.

Hi! Thank you for highlighting the affordability, cleanliness, comfort and the ambience. About our location, we're less than 10 minutes away from the main attractions like Mehrangarh Fort, Umaid Bhavan and Jaswant Thada. We'd always be happy to help with hailing autos. We're sorry about the WiFi, we've fixed the issue. If you have any more feedback, drop us a line at zobu@zostel.com and we'll work on it. Hope you'll give us to provide you with a better experience next time! Cheers, Zostel

Had an absolutely wonderful experience here! Very helpful staff and a great atmosphere to spend time in. I wish I could have stayed a few more nights, just to hang out haha. Definitely recommend it if you're stopping through Jodhpur!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi! We completely agree...we too wish you'd stayed a couple of more nights :) Glad to know you had such a wonderful experience with us. Thank you for highlighting the staff and the atmosphere. We're sure you must have made tons of friends here, us included. Do visit our other Zostels in Jaipur, Udaipur, Agra, Goa, Delhi and Varanasi :) Cheers, Zostel

Staff were genuinely helpful and did go out of their way to be welcoming. This is hostel is not in a good postion for ease of access to the main sights of the city. However the biggest problem for me were the two rats in the kitchen and the mice running around the floor in the dorm. I recognise that the vermin problem goes wider than the hostel which is above a hotel, but the lack of cleanliness in the kitchen is a problem.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi! Thank you for mentioning the staff. About the location, we're withing 10 minutes of the main attractions like Mehrangarh Fort, Umaid Bhavan, Jaswant Thada. About the rat situation, we sincerely apologize. Actually, there was work going around in the area and the whole street was affected. That is no excuse still, and we are very sorry about your experience. We hope you will give us a chance to host you again so we can give you a 5-star time. Cheers, Zostel

Nice hostel like the other 'Zostels' throughout Rajasthan. Little bit out of the way but a rickshaw ride to where you need to be is cheap. Staff are helpful and friendly.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there! Thank you for taking out time to give us this great review and rating. We're glad you found us to be consistent with the other Zostels you've visited and that you liked the staff. About the location, we're in a safe and secure area close to the city yet away from the hustle and bustle, so it's the perfect place to relax after a tiring day of exploring. We're also within 10 minutes of Meharangarh Fort, Jaswant Thada, Umaid Bhavan. Hope you will visit us again soon :) Cheers, Zostel

All the Zostels are great. Zostels are providing great backpacking accomodation in a needy market in lndia. Well done! Had a quick one night stay in Jodhpur & needed information. Staff (one guy) was less than helpful. But the next day, another guy was super helpful, so grateful. Stayed in the female dorm, clean comfy bunks. Location is not great & security was average as well. I wasn't there long enough to comment on facilities & atmosphere. Would stay there again.

Hi! Good to know that you'd be happy to visit us again, you'd love the ambience. We're so glad to be part of this big revolution, changing the way India travels - backpacking is really picking up over here. Thank you for highlighting the rooms, comfort. About the location, we maintain a balance between being within 15 minutes of the attractions yet maintain the chilled-out vibe, away from the bustle. Our security is top-notch but we'll look into it. See you again! Cheers, Zostel

Good beds, AC in dorms works well, good sized lockers and rooms. Staff are friendly. Bothrooms are clean. Wifi speed is reasonable. Not a central location and not much of interest near by but easy to get a bus or rickshaw to the city centre. Has a little kitchen but it has a mouse problem.

Hello! Thank you so much for highlighting the clean comfy beds, A/C rooms, staff, cleanliness and the facility. About the location, we're actually lesser than 12 minutes away from the beautiful attractions like Jaswant Thada, Mehrangarh Fort and Umaid Bhawan. Plus we're very well-connected via public transport. About the mouse problem, it affected the entire area due to some construction. We fixed this almost immediately! Hope you will visit us again soon! Cheers, Zostel

Namaste! What an awesome review and rating to receive, this is great!

Lot of miracles coming your way as Zostel is throwing open its doors in other cities as well, so do some Zostel hopping and visit us in Jaipur/Udaipur/Agra :) Cheers! Zostel

Zostel Jodhpur was a great place to stay in terms of accommodation/ price/hygiene/ any other services. I enjoyed my short stay there and would want to come again and experience the beauty of backpacking culture that those guys are promoting. Loved it!
