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.

    Staff here were super helpful, especially considering I was unwell while I was here. Helped me sort out a private room to run to the pharmacy and shop if I needed! Good location and a nice social area to meet people. Close to the Taj and other amenities. Can't praise this place enough.

    Would definitely recommend! The staff is very friendly, great atmosphere, great rooms and awesome facilities. One of the best hostels I’ve started at in India. It’s only a ten minute walk to Taj Mahal, so you can easily get there before sunrise. The staff even helped me to get to my bus and was there for any other questions I had.

    We got in around midnight and the staff were super helpful with checking in and advising us what time to get up for the Taj to beat the cues etc. They were very relaxed staff with checking out and also helped us book our buses to our next destination. My favourite part of the hostel was the green house/cafe/common area for everyone to chill. It was super quirky and comfy.

    With most accommodation in Agra not looking up to scratch, Zostel is your best bet for a decent stay in a great location for the Taj. 20 minute walk from the Taj and short tuk tuk from other sites in Agra. Private room was basic, a bit bland and clinical but clean nonetheless. Hot water was temperamental. Restaurant was floor seating but a cool area to chill and good food. This is your best bet for Agra!

    Very Good

    Good place to stay to see the Taj Mahal which is walking distance from the hostel. Communal cafe area and garden are lovely. Not sure how secure the place is as there was no one on reception when I got up in the night and the main door was wide open. Also no locks on bedroom doors. Huge clunky drawers under the bed are a nightmare when trying not to wake up other guests in the dorm, but perhaps that’s just in one dorm. Overall a pleasant stay.

    First night the ac unit was leaking above my bed, had my bed changed with no issues. Short walk to the Taj Mahal. Nice sunset tour at the hostel. Staff were helpful booking trains etc. Bathroom wasn’t very clean and the room door is always left open. No real common area to meet people.

    Staff were nice, no security other than the front desk which is usually empty. We could leave our bags here if check out is before departure but no security. Sheets were dirty. Pictures are very different to real life. 15 min walk to the Taj. Good shops and restaurants nearby
