Property Description

Zostel Dalhousie is a quaint, scenic backpacker hostel among Himalayan peaks of Chamba. Situated about 3 Km from the main Gandhi Chowk of Dalhousie - we have tried to be slightly away while still being acessible to the civilization.

Boasting of a gorgeous in-house cafe and huge open areas, Zostel Dalhousie is an ideal spot to laze around with a book and coffee with snowy mountains visible in the distance.
If the explorer 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 hassles.
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 friendly, local team will further help you plan and explore the ‘Switzerland of India’. Travelers flock to Dalhousie, the gateway to Chamba valley, to enjoy the weather, the beauty, and the distant views of the snow-clad mountains. However, that’s not all Dalhousie has to offer. One has more than a slight chance to catch a glimpse of a bear or two in Kalatop Wildlife Sanctuary or to explore the gushing Satdhara Falls. But the cherry on the cake is definitely Khajjiar - - a beautiful meadow situated just outside Dalhousie.

    Staff is what makes this hostel. Make sure to bring warm clothes as it gets nights cold at night and no heater but this should be expected in Dalhousie.

    There was NO Heat & it was 3°C. For some reason guests staying in another part of the Hostel insisted on playing Music & talking After 1am ,while People were sleeping next door. The guests talked until 2am after they were asked to use the common room.

    Location of zostel Dalhousie is pretty awesome .working staff seriously need to pay a close attention on the cleanliness. During my stay I also found absurd management of the common area as a major issue with my other peers as well.. In the end I would like to mention that if they will figure out the above mentioned points then zostel Dalhousie is a must visit place..

    So I had made this booking through Hostel world and when I reached Zostel, they said there is no booking with my name as it doesn't reflect in there system. I had booked 4 Bed Mixed Form, however, due to non availability of the beds... I was given 8 mixed bed dorm. And I was charged for 4 beds dorm .. Exchanging of mails didn't work with Zostel and I was assured by the receptionist that the remaining money will come to the card from which booking is made. That never came.

    We had a pretty bad experience at Zostel Dalhousie. The rooms were very very untidy, blankets looked like they haven't been washed since ages. The staff slept in the same dorms and as us and after using the blankets didn't even put it for a wash. Food was good. The only good thing about the Zostel experience was interacting with the community manager Amala who helped us with all our queries and went out of her way to make our stay comfortable in whatever way possible.

    They cancelled my booking one day before check in, and then refused to assist in getting my deposit back after multiple emails. Ended up losing money on a cancellation which was initiated by the hostel and they were not helpful at all.
