    My stays at Zostel in Srinagar was fantastic. With a beautiful view and cold atmosphere, staying at Zostel gave me another perspective about Kashmir and the people living in this city. The facilities provided by the management was perfect, added by the hospitality from the staffs and owners. Will definitely come back to Kashmir or stay in other Zostels in India.

    The place got some of the most beautiful views from the rooftop. One can spend their whole mornings and evening watching the sunrise, sunset and the changing colors. The location is pretty convenient and very close to the lake and gardens. The most important part was the conversations with the hosts, knowing more about Kashmir, having homely food and just relaxing on our comfy beds. Can't wait to visit again.Thanks, Zostel for such a beautiful memory.

    Situated near Nishad Heritage Gardens slightly, Zostel Srinagar has a charm of it's own. Suhail and Showkat are the perfect hosts to your stay, keeping you informed (of the local tit-bits) as well as entertained. The basics in terms of bed, utilities, hygiene are well sorted but the reason you want to stay here is for the people you'll meet. The memoirs of the common room (breeding ground for all the chatter, friendly banter & games) won't die anytime soon. Visit Zostel. You'll be refreshed. :-)

    As a solo traveler Zostel is always best option and this Zostel at Srinagar is so far the best I have visited, though I have visited only 3 Zostel property. This was my fourth and the best the hosts, staffs , and accessibility to places like Sonmarg, Pahalgam, Gulmarg etc (and local places too in Srinagar) is easy and they provide taxi services too. Last thing come visit and experience... You'll love it. Ok bye.

    I choose this hostel for a weekend getaway and immediately fell in love with the environment they provide. Great staff, location is like cherry on the cake.. very well located away from the hustle bustle and quite close to the Dal Lake. It's a bit far away from the airport, which might seem a little stressful initially but not after reaching at the property. Great views from the terrace.. of Lake, Hazrtbal mosque, green mountains... And one do not miss the sunset while sipping a hot kwaha.
