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