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


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 !

Hello! Thank you so much for the short and lovely review plus the rating, we really appreciate it when travellers take out time to let us know about their stay. It's good to know that you liked the dorms and found everything to be clean and comfortable. Do visit us in Jaipur, Udaipur, Goa, Delhi, Agra, Varanasi and Vadodara as well. Cheers, Zostel


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.

Hello, thank you for letting us know about your experience at Zostel. We're glad you liked the hostel and the atmosphere. We'd just like to say that our manager was just giving company to some of the other guests, because he has to be available at all times to handle check-ins, issues, etc. We're are truly sorry for the inconvenience caused and we'll make sure this remains a one-off incident. We are well-connected via tuktuks and buses to the city. Cheers, Zostel


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.

Hello! Well, well, seems like we have a true blue Zosteler here in the blue city! Thank you so, so much for the great review and rating. It's always nice to hear that we could live up to the expectations of our amazing travellers. We're glad you enjoyed the facilities that we provide. We hope to host you again soon - that Zostel passport needs some stamping :) Cheers, Zostel


It's a bit out of the way, but not too bad. It's a good hostel with good beds and a good vibe.

Ahoy there! It's so great to know that you liked our hostel, felt the beds were comfy and you enjoyed the Zostel vibe. About the location, it is a little away from the city, but that also means it's away from all the noise, pollution and chaos. We're still very well-connected via public transport and within 12 minutes of all the attractions in the city. Hope that we can host you again soon :) Cheers, Zostel


Amazing staff making this an unforgetable stay!

Hiya! With a few words, you've really made us happy, we're over the moon right now! Thank you so much for taking out time to let us know about your wonderful experience. Glad that we have a little space in your mind now. We'll keep flooding you with memories...come by again soon so we can chill together some more :) Cheers, Zostel


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!

Hello! Thank you so much for the beyond amazing review and rating. We're so glad that we could be the best stay in India, woot! So happy we could show you around Jodhpur. It is a lovely city indeed and the fort is absolutely majestic. Sapan would be really glad to host you again. Stop by the blue city and Zostel soon :) Cheers, Zostel


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.

Hi! Thank you so much for the great review and rating, we appreciate it. We're so sorry about the inconvenience caused to you by the other guests. Backpacking and hostels are still a relatively new concept but it's catching on. We have dorm rules which most guests follow but sometimes we enforce them if a particular traveller is causing any issues. We'll keep an eye out for such things more vigilantly. Thank you for the suggestion. See you again! Cheers, Zostel


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.

Hello there! Thank you so much for giving us such a lovely review and rating, appreciate it! It's great to know that you liked the staff, and props to you for highlighting the affordability of our place. As for the location, we like to maintain a balance between being accessible yet slightly away from all the chaos in the city. We are still well-connected with all the attractions though :) We hope to host you again in the near future! Cheers, Zostel


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.

Hello! Thank you for mentioning the staff, we're glad we could make you feel at home. About the location, we are lesser than 12 minutes from Jaswant Thada, Mehrangarh fort and Umaid Bhawan. As you mentioned, we're well-connected with the public transport as well. About the WiFi, sorry you felt so. We'll make sure we fix it. We're glad you'd choose to stay with us again...looking forward to hosting you soon :) Cheers, Zostel


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.

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


I never knew that Jodhpur could have such a good HOSTEL IN the centre of the city. Rooms were very spacious & airy, bathrooms were neat & clean, well-equipped with basic amenities. The staff was very couteous & polite.


Lust Loved it

Hi there! Thank you so much for your short and sweet review. We're glad you loved our Zostel so much. Appreciate it. Do visit us in our other Zostels in Jaipur, Udaipur, Agra, Delhi, Goa, Varanasi! See you soon :) 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
