Internet doesn't work in room, but fine in common areas and be careful when booking you actually get aircon if you want it. Delux doesn't equal aircon Staff were helpful and gave us a late checkout when down with the Delhi belly and carried out bags to the bus and made sure we got on ok

Small room and a fantastic balcony. Nice quiet part of town, but with great restaurants near by and a short walk over foot bridge to the palace

Shower didn't work, but hot water to the tap made buck effective! Great view of the Taj from the our room and Fantastic view from the deck! Quieter part of town, but plenty of options nearby to explore. Get your tuk tuk driver to stop at the East gate ticket counter before you check in to save back tracking

Shower worked, clean hostel. Staff were really helpful. Massive communal spaces! Location is a 10-15 min walk from the main attractions in old town, but still well placed to explore all the Ghats.

Greetings! We'd like to thank you for taking out time to let us know about your experience with us. Good to know you liked the staff, the big common areas (biggest in any hostel in India!) as well as the location. We're close enough but not so much that we're in the vein of chaos, you know :) Looking forward to another visit from you. Do stop by soon :) Cheers, Zostel

Had a deluxe double. Heaps of space, but warm (not hot) water was only to sink, not shower. With a bucket you can make work! Staff did everything expected and were great about our altered nights, but didn't offer much to ensuring you maximise your stay in Delhi or the hostel when compared to Zostel Varanasi

View Property Reply

Ahoy! Good to know that you liked the rooms as well as the staff. We're sorry if you felt any distance from our side, it was completely unintentional. We have a city walk every morning to explore Delhi which has got some really great reception. We hope that you will stop by again for another experience and this time we'll make sure that it's a 5-star one! Cheers, Zostel

Great hostel with heaps of space for quiet areas and the court yards were great places to have a few beers and meet some awesome people. Huge kitchen and plenty of room in the 4 bed dorms. Great location with super markets and the main bar area all within a 5 minute walk. 10:30 curfew for the outside areas allows people to sleep and keeps any noise contained. I had no hestitation booking a second stay at this hostel.

Good location on the edge of central Miraflores (5 minutes walk to the action) so you can escape the noise. A quite place and you may not met many other travellers, but it is a great place to recharge and they'll help you bargain with the taxi drivers also:)

the staff really get this hostel going and it feels like a bit of a family of your fellow travels after a few short hours. A smallish hostel, but the whole hostel went out and explored Lapa which was awesome. Some good Caprinha's as well:)Always felt safe and a great location to explore Lapa and Santa Teresa

Right near the cathedral in a great location although you can get a bit of street noise in morning. The walking tours run by Dario are very good and give a good insight into Seville. They run pub crawls, tapas nights and more, which is a great way to meet people if your travelling alone. Nice roof top balcony too.

Was disappointed my female cousin was left in a 10bed dorm with a group of 9 guys the next night. Nothing happened and all was well, but thought was a bit rough, especially on a first time backpacker once I left after the weekend. Be nice to see some planning around this.
