    I had a great stay at Zostel Chennai. Staff was friendly and helpful, the place was comfortable and spacious. The area was nice and quiet but also close to stuff to see. The hostel had a nice and chilled atmosphere, easy to meet other travellers to hang out with.

    An Ideal place for a short or long stay in Chennai. It is close to the Metro and at the heart of the city. It is located in a homely locality making it a safe abode. A Homely environment and a great bunch of people that come and go to socialize with!!

    Fantastic experience! Felt more like home than a hostel. Very friendly and courteous staff. Sweet spots to chill and connect with other backpackers. The location is bang at the heart of the city. Would definitely come back again.

    My worst Zostel Experience. The place is really bad on cleanliness and hygiene. I booked for 2 nights but checked out the next day after a waking-bugs -nightmare. Woke up in the middle of the night with itching, turns out my bed was full of bugs. Spotted BIG bed bugs around and some crawling worms. Brought up the issue with the man incharge, they asked me to sleep in living area but it also had bugs. Left after a sleepless night and a body full of love bites by Chennai bugs.

    The location and the property is very good. But not maintained properly. The place is full of mosquitoes and the kitchen is utterly disgusting with unwashed utensils lying stinking. The incharge Mr. Zack is no at all professional with his work and doesn’t care about any maintenance of the property.
