    The main reason that makes Zostel Rishikesh so happening is because of their host Tasneem. Once she took us over the riverside after midnight and we had a blast. She is a very jolly girl and fun to talk with. Just 10 mins from laxman jhula and situated right beside the main highway. Food is great, but I feel that the hostel staff could have been more friendly and engaging. Overall a great place to chill out and meet interesting people.

    My first stay at any Zostel in India was at Zostel,Rishikesh and it made me a huge fan of brand Zostel. The experience was totally awesome and the staff members are quite friendly and helpful. They try to accomodate any request made to them. The vibe of the place is quite unique. The rooftop cafe is equally awesome with quality food at a very reasonable price. Do stay at Zostel when you are in Rishikesh.

    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.

    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.

    I went in January and the temperature goes quite low in the night. I expected atleast the rooms to have basic heating facility but there was none. The bedding provided was also not sufficient and the overall look didn't seem to be clean.
