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

Yazd is a beautiful Persian city consisting largely of ancient and restored mud houses that's located in the desert. The biggest attraction of Yazd is the old town, which is where most of the ancient mosques and Islamic schools can be found, as well as many tourist sweet shops and markets. The best accommodation location tends to be in or near the old town. Accommodation here is usually in a traditional Persian house, with beautiful courtyard and relaxing rooms. Some accommodation even allows access to the rooftop, which is a sight in itself, as the views are amazing.

Accommodation price can vary greatly, however the services and facilities change slightly. Staying in a traditional house is definitely a highlight, there are even a few traditional houses that are set up like hostels, with dorm rooms and cheap, affordable prices. These places, though 'traditional' are usually catered for Western tourists as well as local tourists and have both squat toilets and western toilets - just make sure you don't flush the toilet paper. A simply, Iranian buffet breakfast is usually included in the price and consists of boiled eggs, tea, bread, cucumber and tomatoes and sometimes fruit. The accommodation usually also includes wifi, though you will need a VPN to access a lot of sites, towels, toiletries, air-conditioning or fans and free city information. The bus and train station is situated about 30-40 minutes from the old town, it isn't recommended staying in accommodation in this area as there are no tourist attractions. Women must still wear the hi-jab / head scarf in the common area of all accommodation.
