The location is absolutely amazing! though it's really cold up there. Kodai lake is about 1.5km from there, walkable (better walk because too much traffic around the lake). Food and the kitchen staff were great. Not much different from the pictures so you can keep your expectations. The crowd during my stay was really not friendly, not good for solo travelers. But you might find better people to hangout with, hopefully.

I was on a solo workcation trip to Kodaikanal. I loved the vibe of the place and the staff here at Zostel. Of course it takes time to gel with people and my five days stay helped me to do so. I met some interesting people and had great fun in that dream of a location atop a hill inside a heritage bungalow! Do visit for once to experience the fun! Thanks to manager Ravi and Tamal for all the help and hospitality! Cheers 😃🤘🏻
