Property Description

Zostel Vagamon is a backpackers’ hostel nestled in the soothing green meadows of Vagamon, a small hill-town in Kerala, India. Based in a scarcely explored region, it is a travellers’ gateway to Nature in its purest form, away from the tourists and city life.

The front yard at Zostel Vagamon overlooks a vast expanse of lush green hills while the backyard gives way to nearby tea estates. On the top floor, the vast common area doubles for a natural screen of panoramic views of the misty hills all around.

With ample sunlight and breezes wrapping you in comfort, you are bound to feel cheerful, tranquil, and free in the setting.

    Truely the best place to stay in Kerala! I loved every moment during my stay here and i extended for ten days! The best part was the helpful and most friendly people: Mahesh and Sandeep . Everyone there made me feel at home. The location is really amazing. A very chill and relaxed atmosphere.The perfect place to stay in if you want to relax, explore Vagamon, and witness the magical view of sunrise and sunset! Zostel arranged for us trekking adventures to see the best spots in Vagamon.Fullpower;)

    This place is beyond stunning. It really feels like a 'Grand Designs' property. If you want a special hostel experience you have to come here. The food is so delicious, the staff are friendly and Vagamon is an amazing place to explore, full of incredible hikes and views. I wouldn't miss it! Stargazing at night is amazing and the double bed dorms are to die for! I would highly recommend staying here.

    It is the best zostel for a reason! Picturesque location, amazing facilities and cool staff. I was in love with the zostel as soon as I reached the property and parked my car. This zostel has an adventurous vibe. I would highly recommend travellers to explore Vagamon and don't miss out on your stay at Zostel Vagamon. Thank you Likhit and Sagar for hosting us! You'll have been amazing!

    Had a great time here. The location is gorgeous. The Manager, Likhith, works overtime to make sure everyone has a great time. The hostel itself is very comfortable and the adjoining areas around the hostel are open for exploration. Will definitely be back 😇

    The serene atmosphere at which the hostel is located is definitely what i wanted for a weekend getaway.The extremely friendly staff; likith & Sagar made the stay at zostel very comfortable and made sure every1 had a good time. The stay was very clean and neat. Its a bit secluded so be free of networks. Food served was homely and its definitely the place if you want to unwind by just simply sitting down and looking at mother nature and hearing the forest birds and insects chirp away.

    Set in a quiet and secluded location. Rules to maintain the serenity must be enforced to soak in what the place has to offer. Wasn't happy with the crowd turning the place into a mini music festival.

    Beautiful area away from tourism. A party vibe for sure, going against the rules of Zostel, like not observing quiet hours and no alcohol on the premises. Had some weird occurrences with locals of asking for selfies and awakening to men looking at me while I sleep in a mix dorm. Recommend female dorm if you are a lone female traveler.

    Very strange isolated hostel that becomes a party location for residents of Bangalore at the weekend. Music blared from speakers outside the dorm windows until 2am. Miles from anywhere, including Vagamon itself, so you are forced to pay the extortionate prices for tiny meals. Stock up on snacks!! Trekking was great and it’s definitely less touristy than Munnar with some of the same amazing scenery.
