Backpacking Shiraz

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

Shiraz is a Persian city located in the south of Iran. It is popular for both international travelers and locals and is also known as the "City of Love" due to the number of Persian poets that were born and lived there. Shiraz is a great place to experience some of Iran's literature and poetry. As you explore the city, you will see and hear people reciting verses from Hafez and Rumi.

Shiraz is full of beautiful mosques, tombs, and bazaars, as well as parks. Many people, especially locals, have picnic at dusk at the parks near the arch, on the outskirts of town. The main attraction in Shiraz for international travelers is the ancient ruins of Persepolis, which are located about sixty kilometers from the city. The reception at your Shiraz hostel will be able to help with arrangements to see the ruins.

There are a few accommodation options in Shiraz, mostly cheap hotels or fancy five-star hotels. There are only a handful or guesthouses and Shiraz hostels available. There are a few hotels that also offer dorm rooms for solo travelers. Not all rooms offer private bathrooms or even Western toilets, so if this is a concern for you, you may want to confirm with the accommodation in advance. Wi-Fi, towels, toilet paper, and soap are usually included in the price. Breakfast may or may not be included, so it may be best to check in advance. Most rooms will also have a fridge and usually free tea will be available (you may have to get it from the kitchen). All showers have hot water.
