Welcome to Zostel, the largest branded hostel chain in India and Nepal. This chain started back in 2013 as the first real backpackers' accommodation in mainland India, and before that there were very few options for budgt travellers that didn't want an unsafe and dirty stay (who does, right?).

Nowadays, top rated Zostel hostels are found in over 35 cities across India and Nepal, including major destinations such as Delhi, Jaipur, Rishikesh, Udaipur and Kathmandu.

Let's hear what the Zostel team has to say:

"We hope to play our part in promoting traveling and to create a trustworthy, fun brand in the process while taking along the local communities with us."

Let's have a look at the perks of staying at one of these hostels:

  • In-house activities
  • Common hangout areas
  • Free, reliable Wifi
  • Free water dispensers
  • Female dorms

What makes Zostel stand out in this part of the world is the modern design and special hostel lifestyle that you'd expect to find in Europe and other western countries. The rooms for one thing are pretty luxurious.

Alongside Zostel hostels, there is also "Zostel Home". This is your opportunity to stay in accommodation far away from the cities and closer to nature.

Certain properties also offer Zostel Escape multi-day packages that include trekking and extreme sports.

Who stays at Zostel?

Zostel is a fabulous all-rounder for any traveller that's new to India & Nepal and wishes to stay somewhere with homey comforts and modern facilities.

The properties are all safe and secure, in great city locations which makes getting around less stressful.

Little details such as access to clean drinking water and optional breakfast make life in Asia an easier transition.

Of course, the in-house activities makes it easier for solo travellers to make new friends and socialise.

How much?

Zostel is easily a budget backpacker choice, with seriously affordable rates without compromising great facilities and comfort.

The average prices are as follows:

  • Avg. Prices per Bed € 3-5
  • Avg. Prices Private Rooms € 14-16

As you can see, if you're used to paying €14 for a shared dorm, it's possible to enjoy the luxury of a private room for the same price at Zostel!
