Property Description

Started way back in 2014 - Zostel Agra is located at a short 10-min walk from the Taj Mahal's East Gate. Top rated, with over 1000 reviews on HW and many more elsewhere - Zostel Agra comes with the guarantee of brand Zostel, India's largest and the oldest backpacker hostel chain.

Housing a sprawling lawn and an in-house AC cafe to chill, our hostel's offerings to a backpacker are plenty. Feel free to lounge around in the lawn chit chatting with fellow backpackers over chai in summers and bonfire in winters. All our dorms and private rooms are airconditioned for that peaceful night sleep necessary to visit Taj early in the morning. Even the nearest ticket counter to Taj Mahal is located only 0.3 Km from the hostel.

If the traveler in you is calling out, we’ll hear it well. Every day in Zostel is happening, complete with doses of laughter and experiences. Chill out with the coolest set of people from around the world and travel without hassle. Before your mischievous minds starts wandering far, let us put one thing real straight, We take the comfort of each and every traveller very seriously.Also, if getting intoxicated is all you’re looking for, we urge you to look ELSEWHERE. At Zostel, we’d rather pass and share episodes. ;)
Our team will further help you explore Agra beyond the Taj Mahal. Take an evening boat ride with us in the Yamuna, the river which flows beside the Taj Mahal to enjoy a different perspective of the mausoleum. Make sure to meet your new backpacker friends in the hostel common room here and see the sunrise with them at the Taj the next day.

    Fabulous

    The location is pretty good, 20 minute walk from the Taj Mahal east gate so you can visit in the early morning easily. Quite far away from the other sights in Agra though. The cafe is nice although the AC wasn't working when I was there so quite stuffy. The hostel itself seems a bit run down, the bathrooms all seem to have leaky taps so the floors are always wet. The dorm was comfortable overall though. Staff were really friendly and organised a sunset boat trip which was amazing.

    Well positioned for the Taj Mahal. Good places to eat close by. On the whole somewhat rundown but then for the price we paid it was acceptable.

    Been to lots of hostels, this is one of the worst. Room was very damp and the beds smelt horrid. No hot water in the shower. Place is a building site, loud banging all day from 7 till 6 “no lay in” Dirt everywhere from builders. Food wasn’t great. Common area is ok but is a sauna during the day with **** A/C so pointless. Saw people refuse to stay after seeing the rooms!.. Workers get stoned and aren’t very helpful. Doesn’t look like the photos. Only good side is location. Wouldn’t recommend.

    Bed bugs, damp room and terrible food. Only positive is its close to the taj. Never left a review before but feel compelled to. Thought I was safe using a chain, Zostel but I was wrong.
