Property Description

Situated in the lap of nature, Zostel Ooty is a backpacker hostel that allows you to mingle with fellow travellers over bonfires & hikes. Set amid rolling hills with views of Doddabetta Mountain, this modest hostel is only 2.8 km from Ooty's Government Rose Garden and a 5 min walk from the main bus/railway station.

Nestled in the ‘Blue Mountains’ of the Nilgiris, Ootacumund or Ooty stands at over 2,200 meters and has all the staples of a charming hill station. With cool temperatures all through the year, it's inviting setting amidst verdant green hills has rightfully earned Ooty the moniker, ‘Queen of the Blue Hills’. Quaint bungalows and heritage buildings reflect Ooty’s colonial past and make it an ever-growing and popular holiday destination in southern India.

Unfortunately it wasn’t a good experience. If you are travelling and you look for a hostel where you get a warm welcome I recommend to choose a different hostel. Also especially if you travel alone and would like to get some help about potential Trekking sides or other activities you can do in Ooty don’t expect to much help from the team at the desk. But if you do a trek call Massi he is a local guy and has lots of experience and is good fun. Sadly I think that place is overrated.

It was my first stay in any Zostel and the experience was so good, that it has encouraged me to plan more visits to Zostels across India. This was also my first solo trip but it did not feel the way any time because of how supportive and courteous the staff was. Had a great time at Zostel Ooty and i would love to come back again.
