Wanderers Nest




The Hostelz.com Review

Wanderers Nest is simply wonderful -- housed in a luxury villa, it offers beautiful and tastefully decorated interiors, clean and comfortable beds, and many added extras, thanks to which your stay is guaranteed to be really enjoyable. No surprise therefore that the hostel is extremely popular so you had better book in advance as it might already be full a few days before your arrival.

The Location

The hostel is located in the Civil Lines area of Jaipur, which is a quiet residential area not far away from the train station. It is the higher class end of the city, which means that you will be surrounded by spectacular villas and palaces. The area is safe to walk around in even at night. However, for the majority of the sights, you will have to take a tuk tuk or taxi. While the hostel organises full-day tuk tuk tours, you would probably spend less just paying to get to each individual attraction separately.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel offers a few private rooms, but the majority of them are dorms. While some have a high number of beds, they still feel cosy and private enough. The beds come with huge lockers and have a hanging pocket attached to the frame above your pillow where you can store your personal items. The rooms are en suite and the bathrooms are extremely clean and modern and come with plenty of toilet paper and soap. Also, hot water is available around the clock.

Common Spaces

Amongst all the positive aspects, the common spaces might be the real highlight of the hostel. There is a really nice garden area with tables and chairs where bonfires are lit every night. Moreover, there are several small hidden spaces for socialising scattered all around the hostel -- the big balcony with a nice view over the street where you can sit in the sun in the mornings as well as the chilling zone with cosy mattresses and pillows. There is also a very nice and fully equipped kitchen available for guests to use. Unlimited drinking water is also at the disposal of the guests. In the evening, a set meal is available upon payment; in the morning, the staff are happy to cook whatever you order.


With amazing atmosphere; beautiful, clean and modern rooms; and very helpful staff, you could not ask for more than Wanderers Nest has to offer. Even if it is located a bit far from the touristy area, you will be happy to return to this cosy place in the evening where you are guaranteed to feel truly welcome.
