    It was my first stay in any Zostel and the experience was so good, that it has encouraged me to plan more visits to Zostels across India. This was also my first solo trip but it did not feel the way any time because of how supportive and courteous the staff was. Had a great time at Zostel Ooty and i would love to come back again.

    Zostels are always great as usual to stay. The view of this hostel and the location were great. The staff is very friendly and Aman is a great host. I recommend Zostel ooty for any backpacker who visits Ooty. Don't stay anywhere else. Stay here only 😛

    The Zostel is situated just 1km away from the city centre and amidst a beautiful location. The ambience is very nice and cleanliness is maintained quite well. The staffs are very friendly and will help you out any time, not only with regard to the hostel but also with respect to transport, cafes, restaurants, and attractive spots. It is truly a home away from home.

    Loved the cannot ever have anything but zostel at extremely low rates at one of the best locations your stay could be. Food was amazing, no need to explore outside commercially overrated restaurants. If you are a group or single, must go Zostel for doubling the fun. For couples, I think, the zostelliers let them stay on their own.they are less welcoming then (the other guests not the host) but that's okay, unless you wanted to go to Zostel for making new friends.

    It was okay but could have been way cleaner. All the fitings in the bathroom were in bad condition inside the ladies room. The flush, the jet and everything. Also, it wasn't clean. The ladies room was too tiny to accomodate six people. Also, it didn't have any windows or ventilation.
