    A great location with a fantastic ambience and atmosphere. Definitely worth the drive/walk-up. The conditions re great, very clean, and comfortable. The best part of the whole experience was the staff. Prince, the manager on duty at the time that I was there, was incredible. He looked after everyone there, ensured everyone was comfortable and made the effort to make sure we all got anything we wanted to have a great holiday. Highly recommend!

    The place is nestled between the most picturesque location with lush greenery all around, sound of chirping birds, hills all around and smiling faces of the travellers and courteous staff. I had a very short stay at this property, and it left me longing for more. The place is well equipped with all basic necessities. Food is cooked by in-house cooks and is delicious. In the evening, bonfire and games are organised for the travellers. Harris ensured everyone felt at home and the made our day!!

    I wish I can give 11/10 but mathematically it's not possible. The location of the hostel is absolutely outstanding and people maintaining hostel are really cool. I hope I will come back soon.

    A really wonderful place to stay at, a heritage property from early 1940's preserved and well maintained with robust mountains beneath and lush green valley at the door, its is the place for a mental Exit! The staff - Prince, Harris and Hritik were superb with their hospitality.

    If you are looking for quietness, birds tweets, cozy atmosphere, a clean place and a nice setting (hostel situated in the middle of lush green tea field estate), this is your place. Staff are very helpful (Prince the hostel manager goes out of his way to help you). Good for solo travelers and couples alike.

    Zostel Wayanad is by far my best Zostel experience. The hostel is nestled in a Tea Estate far away from civilisation. The dorms are very spacious and the entire facility is clean. Music & conversations often go on till early hours of the morning. Special shoutout to the hosts, keep rocking!

    The hostel is a beautiful converted hospital which is super clean and the beds are so comfortable. The location is very remote, which means the views of Chembra Peak and the tea plantation are spectacular, but you have to rely on the hostel for food. It’s a great place to get away from the crowds and relax, but they had a big party on the weekend so I felt like I was escaping the noise at the end. Also, Chembra Peak was closed for trekking at the time which was sad as it looks incredible.
