Zostel Mysore Reviews

Zostel Mysore is part of the nation-wide Zostel chain of hostels, and this particular one hosts six different dorm rooms (one of which is female only, plus two private doubles). Most rooms are en suite; for those that aren't, there are two other bathrooms located on the ground and second floor. The hostel has the unusual feature of being built around palm trees, so you will see a couple growing through the property.

The Location

The hostel is located on a fairly quiet street, yet it hosts two ice cream cafes, a bakery, and a dosa cafe, plus several other juice and food counters. You will not be short of food options here! A short walk will take you towards more small stores and restaurants. A twenty-five-minute walk will get you to a mall and cinema complex. The train and bus stations are just a ten-minute tuk tuk ride away.

Despite the advertised twenty-four-hour reception, they do close it and lock the front gate late at night, so if you intend to arrive very late/early, it is best to email them and let them know. In the case of an early arrival, you will be welcome to make use of the common areas and take a nap there if you need.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are very very clean and air conditioned. The dorms are spacious and clean with very comfortable mattresses. There is a power point and reading light for every bed, plus an underbed locker large enough for your whole backpack.

The bathrooms are clean, but a bit of a letdown in comparison to the very modern feel of every other room. They are aged and could use makeovers. But if you are patient it is possible to take a hot shower, which is a bit of a rarity, though it takes up to fifteen minutes for the water to heat as you are running it. The toilets are Western-style and they have toilet roll, hand soap, and space for you to put your clothes/towel/toiletries.

Common Spaces

There is no shortage of common space in this hostel. There is a nice lawn to the front of the hostel where you will find the smoking area, plus many bean bags. Inside you can find bench sofas, a TV, a small book exchange, games, a foosball table, cards, and a guitar. Upstairs, there are more bench sofas and a communal kitchen.
On the roof there is a very nice space with a drum kit, bench sofas, bean bags, and a table-tennis table. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the property, plus for a fee you can purchase food/drinks, use the washing machine, and rent towels.

The guests here are backpackers and local tourists, all around eighteen to thirty-five years of age, and the vibe is friendly and social without being wild. The hostel is also home to two little cats. They are very sweet and friendly, but beware if you have an allergy.


This is a wonderful choice for Mysore, as you'd be hard pressed to find a better hostel for the price. The only things that could make this place better would be updated bathrooms and inclusive tea/coffee, but it's well worth a stay.

Located in India’s deep-breathing capital, Gokulam in the north of Mysore. Our hostel is a backpacker’s yoga retreat amidst the atmospheric district of spice stores and incense stalls. Gokulam is a dynamic place; away from noise, traffic and pollution of the city.

Gokulam,Mysore is the Ashtanga Yoga land of India and being there, how can you stay away from a healthy lifestyle? Zostel Mysore is the peace retreat you have been craving for, taking up some new yoga lessons or to read that book while looking outside time to time or chatting up with fellow backpackers and learning new things.

Be it a mixed dorm, female dorm, a deluxe private room or the breathtaking rooftop lounging area, there is no place you can go to in Zostel Mysore without being awed at the sight of beauty around you. The amazing wall arts give a meaning to Gokulam and their people.
