    It was a wonderful stay at Zostel, infact because of this me and my friends are excited about exploring more zostels at different locations. Staff was very friendly yet communicated the boundaries of the place, especially Anshul made our stay even better. Thank you.

    I was on a solo workcation trip to Kodaikanal. I loved the vibe of the place and the staff here at Zostel. Of course it takes time to gel with people and my five days stay helped me to do so. I met some interesting people and had great fun in that dream of a location atop a hill inside a heritage bungalow! Do visit for once to experience the fun! Thanks to manager Ravi and Tamal for all the help and hospitality! Cheers 😃🤘🏻

    We arrived at 11:00am and the check in was at 12pm but The place had various activities on offer, played in the swing, cricket etc. And 1hr gone so fast. The common hall is the best part. You get to meet people and play indoor games. During our stay, the only con was the water in the bathroom didn't have enough force. It was dripping, and we had to wait 20+ minutes to fill a bucket 🥲
