Moustache Hostel Jaipur is one of the best places in Jaipur. The building is old but well maintained and they have a lift, which is a rarity. The whole hostel is super clean, the staff are all friendly, and the atmosphere is lively and welcoming.
The location of this hostel is great, as it's close to the train station. There are so many shops and restaurants in the surrounding area, you can just walk there. It's located off the main Road, so the traffic noise is minimal. But even so, once inside, you cannot hear anything from outside the building. The dorm room is completely soundproof. Transport is never a problem, as there are always a few rickshaws right outside the hostel, just waiting to take you anywhere you like.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The six-bed dorm room is of a fair size, with enough room to move around. The beds are extremely sturdy, with privacy curtains. These are great -- once you close these curtains, nobody can see you and you are completely cut off from the other guests in the room. There are solid partitions between the beds, so you will not even see your neighbour’s reading light. You’ll definitely get a good night sleep on this mattress. They supply a cover sheet and an extra little cushion, which gives that little bit of lift when sitting on the bed or leaning back. Each bed is equipped with two hooks, two electric sockets, and a private little fan. The main room light, as well as the reading light, are both bright. Something we really love are the huge lockers under the bed, which are large enough to fit big suitcases and backpacks. Another great feature is that they lock with a number lock. The air conditioner is controlled by the guests in the room.
The bathroom is en suite and is fairly large. The shower is separate, so the whole bathroom is still dry after taking a shower. There is always enough hot water for everyone to shower. There are hooks and enough surfaces to leave towels and clothes while showering. The extractor fan keeps the moisture from spreading into the bedroom. The bathroom is equipped with a large mirror and toiletries.
The reception is friendly and welcoming the moment you step into the building. You will have to pay a deposit for a key card for the bedroom; this same key card is used to supply electricity in the room. If you don’t have a towel, you can rent one at the reception. Cold water bottles are also for sale in a fridge next to the reception. On the one wall is a notice board with offers of yoga classes and day trips for sightseeing.
Next to the reception is a large common space with plenty comfortable seating areas. The Wi-Fi is fantastic everywhere in this building. Down a short corridor is another large common room with a bookshelf, games area, microwave, and fridge. If you need to sit and work, there is even a large table with chairs. There isn’t a shortage of common social areas in this hostel. It’s a very lively and happy place to be.
On the rooftop is a café, which serves delicious food at a reasonable price. The area is large with seating that is covered and uncovered. Next to this building is the new bar, where you can party until late.
We highly recommend this hostel -- it is one of the best. It’s super clean, super friendly, and super sociable. We are overjoyed with our experience in Moustache Jaipur.
