    Zostel in Rishikesh was an awesome place to meet people and socialise. The entire team from front of house to back of house were really kind and friendly. They plan activities for you on a daily basis so if you feel that you need to plan your day then you can just sign up to the day plan and get involved. Tasneem led a group of us to a water fall hike, which was incredible. She was very helpful and always had time for the guests. The entire were very helpful and the atmosphere was awesome.

    My perspective for Rishikesh was a single day is enough to explore the entire place. Initially I booked a bed at Zostel for 2 days, but gradually I ended up staying there for about 11 days. The people I have met, the places I have explored and the activities I have participated which was organized by the Activity manager of the property - Tasneem, just made me to extend my stay for such long duration. Every place I have visited along with the zostel activity group had it's own beauty in itself.

    Staff was friendly, our bathroom was pretty gross though. Bedrooms were cold and AC worked well. Cafe above hostel had great food and was reasonably priced. Near bridge to access the other side of Ganges. Walkable location.

    This hostel offers great value for money. Location is good in the main Tapovan market, dorms are really big and spacious- biggest of the 5-6 hostels I've stayed in and outside India, cleanliness is upto the mark and hostel is nicely designed. There are 2-3 spaces you can label as common area, there's a Foosball table and we had a great time playing on it. We went on the morning trek with Tasneem and had a good time even when we were only 3 people. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

    Very Good

    We stayed in a private room. Air con did not work very well and was extremely loud. Room was spacious and bathroom was clean. They offered to clean our room half way through our stay. The cafe food was average, but very cheap so fair. The rooftop is nice but loads of flies and not a good view. On the Saturday night they had music which was average but still provided a good atmosphere. Laundry service was really good and prompt. Common area is nice and relaxed with air con. Location is good.

    Shabby property overall. Quite disappointing, being a Zostel. Staff are a hit and miss. Private rooms are over-priced for the kind of quality offered. Not recommended.
