This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Kashan.
Halfway between Tehran and Isfahan, you will find the city of Kashan, Iran. Kashan does not have the same fame as for example Isfahan and Shiraz, but is considered as one of the highlights on a trip around Iran.
Kashan, Iran, has numerous historical landmarks to offer to visitors. On the road between Tehran and Isfahan, you will pass Kashan after about three hours; it is definitely worth stopping in Kashan for one or more nights. Beautiful architecture, ancient buildings, and a nice vibe are what should convince you to include Kashan in your itinerary around Iran. Kashan, Iran, is a relatively small city and walking around the town’s centre is a great way of exploring. Even if you have seen many bazaars in Iran or the Middle East, you should not skip the Kashan bazaar. It is arguably the nicest and most authentic from the touristic cities in Iran. It is not only stalls with goods for sale, but there are also teahouses and hammams.
Hostels are quite a new concept in Iran. The first hostel opened only a few years ago in Tehran, but the concept of hostels has expanded quickly all over Iran. In the first couple of years, Kashan, Iran hostels could only be booked directly with the hostel (which were often hard to contact) or on Iranian booking sites. Due to sanctions from Western governments, it was previously difficult to make a booking with one of the popular booking sites in the West for a Kashan, Iran hostel. However, there are now several hostels in Kashan, Iran, and a couple of them can now be booked on one of the major booking websites. As mentioned before, the area in which most landmarks are located is pretty small and close to the bazaar. This is also the area where most Kashan, Iran hostels are located and the best location to book your accommodation.
