    Mix of foreign and Indian travelers made this hostel a great place to learn from each others’ experiences. Chintu and Omkar were great hosts with answers to my questions about places to visit. Safari that leaves everyday at 1:30 PM for overnight stay is not to be missed. For only Rupess 1,900 we were treated royally. Seeing sunset and sunrise and in between sky filled with stars were nothing short of magical. And the little city is not bad at all - a lot quieter and calmer. Zostel is in the fort

    I was at the hostel on the day of Diwali, the staff was extremely welcoming and accommodative. The safari was amazing and value for money.

    Chintu, Sonu, the hostel dog Bella and the whole team made our stay really special! Such a warm welcome. Also, staying inside the fort at Jaisalmer is a must! The sunsets are amazing from the balcony. Do Zostel’s camel safari, it’s the best one there!

    Genuinely the friendliest staff we've ever had at a hostel. Chintu and Lala were so welcoming, every time we came to reception they made us chai and sat and talked with us and were really helpful. The location is also fantastic (right inside the fort) and the restaurant serves good food.

    We had a great stop here. The tours they offer are absolutely amazing and the staff that take to are great. We were a bit ill and they really look after you. We also got a free upgrade on a room and they were really accommodating. Perfect location for Jaisalmer. Only downside was the breakfast we got wasn’t that nice but plenty of places to eat nearby.

    Was sick on arrival and staff were very accommodating to me. Bathrooms weren’t that clean and no hot water but was grateful for the help I received. Good food from the restaurant and great location

    We opted to go to the desert safari offered by Zostel. Sleeping under the stars, experiencing emptiness on land while in front of a campfire is a priceless feeling. While the Zostel property itself did not appeal to us as much - the female dorm especially was not as clean as the mixed dorms, didn’t have hot water at any time and the dustbins weren’t emptied out for a while. Overall, a mixed feeling. The desert safari is definitely recommended. Female dorms - not so much. Mixed dorms - yes.
