Liked: An oasis of calm in hectic Varanasi, great common areas & restaurant and wonderful staff. My private room was comfortable, with good shower and AC.

Disliked: It's a bit of a walk to the sights.

Liked: Matching the class and services of European hostels, Zostel still manages to retain a great deal of Indianness in its character. The staff is super helpful and always in for interesting conversations on the city's unique and quirky elements. The rooms are clean & comfy and a large common room makes for a great place to connect with other travellers and hear stories of their Banarasi experiences. Helps you make the most of your stay in this abundant city where no time seems to be sufficient. WiFi and breakfast are fast and fulfilling! The walking tours on offer are amazing, giving a lucid overview of Banaras' history and a neat peep into a day in life of Banaras. Overall - great place to camp at when in Varanasi. Totally recommended! :)

Liked: While this hostel is only recently open, we had an excellent stay here. After travelling in India for a while, Zostel provides an excellent service that many travelers may find hard to find in a lot of Indian cities. The guys were great and were always there to give you advice on where to go and what to eat etc and even took us around themselves. Would love to stay here again and see the place go from strength to strength once they have all there extra services put in place. Totally worth staying here for a couple of days since my two nights were not enough. Keep up the good work guys! :-)

Liked: Zostel varanasi was a great stay and a nice haven from the craziness of Varanasi. The hosts were very accommodating and provided great advise and recommendations for the city. We were a group of five and stayed in the dorm rooms which were clean and comfortable. I have been recommending Zostel Varanasi to our friends. It could be decked up a bit though like other Zostels. Thanks!

Liked: I have stayed in hostels while traveling around Asia and Europe. And hands down, Zostel is the best one I've tried (among other Zostels also, this one is the best)!Clean and Safe. The staff is from amazing IIT and highly qualified. They know a lot of local stuff having studied in a nearby IIT college. Don't think about it twice and stay here!
