Backpacking Isfahan


There is a few things you should know about Isfahan hostels and the city in general. Besides comparing you the best and cheapest hostels in Isfahan, we also highlight what we have liked, disliked and things to look out for.

Esfahan (also spelled Isfahan) is a historic, Persian city located in central Iran, about six hours south of the country's capital, Tehran. Esfahan is most famous for its beautiful old mosques, Islamic schools, bazaars, and busy public parks. On summer evenings, many local families head to the city public parks for picnics. It's a great place to experience traditional Iranian life; more than likely, you will be invited over for tea (chay), melon, or even dinner.

There are many accommodation options, including popular guesthouses, hotels (budget and expensive), and hostels in Esfahan. Accommodation standards vary greatly throughout the city. Hostels in Esfahan and guesthouses usually offer the best deals, and are where travelers are most likely to meet other like-minded travelers. Guesthouses tend to be the most popular option, and many even offer dorm rooms, as well as private rooms. A traditional Iranian breakfast is usually included in the price. Complimentary Wi-Fi, towels, and toiletries are generally the norm as well. With the exception of expensive hotels, most accommodation has only squat toilets; some have both squat toilets and Western toilets. Bathrooms generally are shared, unless you specifically request a private bathroom.

Hijabs (head scarves) must be worn in public areas of all hotels, Esfahan hostels, and guesthouses, and though staff generally are quite understanding of foreigners that are not necessarily accustomed to wearing a head scarf, the establishment can get into trouble for allowing its guests to go without one. This also goes for wearing shorts (for men and women) and t-shirts (for women).
