A view of the serene Aravalli Hills, a pool to chill in, and tantalizing Rajasthani food all commingle to make ZostelX Pushkar the flavourful delight it is. With tents for private rooms, utterly rural milieus made up of fields and faraway hills, and a rustic vibe, the luxury retreat lies at the outskirts of Pushkar city, away from the bustle and still conveniently accessible. A pilgrimage for some, a hippie land for others, Pushkar is an odd and interesting amalgamation of all things travellers and residents want it to be. Known for its peaceful ghats, hike-able hills, and niche market, Pushkar city hails with a breezy vibe. While it gets filled up to the brim during the Pushkar Camel Fair and one week of Holi, the town certainly has a charm that’ll make you stay for longer than you’d expect to whenever you pay it a visit.
ZostelX Rumsu is your gateway to experience the distinct culture of Himachal and a rural lifestyle. From sipping hot tea in bliss to exploring stories, traditions, norms, and landscapes, this home has it all. And since it is settled amongst the thick forests, it is your perfect retreat to the Himalayas.
Hosted by the most loving Lahauli family, you’ll love ZostelX Dobhi for its unique cultural and homely vibes. The home is circled by apple orchards and the majestic cherry blossoms, gleefully bustling with the sounds of the nearby Fojal stream. It sits at the beginning of the stunning Fojal Valley and has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. A meditation room to reconnect with spirituality, a front yard full of flower and fruit trees, and rooms that look out at the great Himalayan skyline. With activities like paragliding from one of the highest points in Himachal, Buddhist monasteries to explore, and ample opportunities for hiking, Dobhi fits the definition of the perfect unexplored cultural town.
Located at the edge of the forest on a hilltop, this outlandish home has everything you need to unwind. A treasury of little pleasures like waking up to the chirping of birds, ZostelX Laida invites you to explore the beauty that lies in countryside stillness. It is a traditional anti-earthquake house made up entirely of logs and mud and makes for a great place for artists to work, ponder, and inspire.
ZostelX Kotgarh is your gateway to experience thrill and calm under one roof. Enjoy skiing at the famous alpine slopes of Narkanda, raft in the River Satluj or just sit back and relax in your balcony sipping hot tea while gazing at the beautiful panorama.
A barbeque by the river, hikes and cookouts, off-roading and biking, fruit-picking and breadmaking, and exclusive cooking sessions with the chef— how does that sound for a holiday? ZostelX Shuru is a collection of many such experiences, coated by the bliss of luxury and a majestic landscape! With a lively bar and a picturesque common area, umpteen balconies that tag along with the rooms, a colourful courtyard, and the comfiest of beds, the chalet is the perfect blend of rustic and fancy. Although, the highlight of your stay would be all the extraordinary meals you’ll end up having here. Hosted by the Gurungs who have been into hospitality for decades, the home is nothing short of a food-paradise. Rati aunty is known around the area for her unique pickles and jams, whereas Anubhav, her son and a chef, woos the guests with a fine-dining experience featuring Indian, American, and Continental cuisines. With curated cultural, adventurous, and leisure experiences, the Gurungs really have the finest and most unique escape in store for you.
Looking out at a valley blooming with pines, green fields, and small dots for houses, our abode in Kotkhai reflects the lavish Himachali lifestyle from the olden times. Here, the balconies glimmer under the Sun and the glass windows open up to the hills galore. The smell of fresh home-cooked meals takes up the air along with the chuckles of kids who host you with the most loving heart. With a basketball court in the front yard, apple orchards all around, and a sunrise worth waking up early for, this home has many little wonders in store for you. Nestled in Padara, a small town just 13km from Kotkhai, the house is easy to reach by road. It sits hidden from the popular tourist destination of Shimla, which is 65km away.
Remember that dream house from your childhood drawings? The one in the mountains, by the river, with the sun shining brightly on it? That’s ZostelX Pah Nala for you. Wake up to the melodious chirping of birds, walk through pomegranate farms, and head to the stream for a refreshing bath. Come back to enjoy a warm breakfast, as you gaze at the splendid mountains all around. With activities like trekking, cycling, and fishing, you’re looking at a day full of adventure. And when the vibrant sun goes down, indulge in a delicious home-cooked meal. End the day on a perfect note with bonfire as you have your slice of stargazing.
Overlooking a valley bursting with Deodars, ZostelX Theog is a woodhouse on a quaint little ridge in Bhalech. A perfect holiday here would be filled with soaking in the serenity of the wilderness, amusing yourself with a game of pool or reading a book at leisure, only to end the day on a magical note with a cosy bonfire in the veranda. The mornings come with mesmerising sunrises, whereas the sun sets to make way for a sky full of stars. Brimming with flower and fruit orchards, Theog is generous in offering panoramic views of the Himalayas. Often overshadowed by popular places like Shimla and Kufri, it is a small treasure with significant wonders.
Imagine this. You’re sitting by the window in a bucolic room made of a century-old wood, watching as the sun pierces through the sky. Under it, a string of green hills is complemented with a river that gushes down swiftly, merely a few feet away. That’s life here at ZostelX Dharamshala in Passu, a small village lodged on the periphery of Dharamshala. The house is made sustainably with the help of bamboos, clay tiles and wood, slates from local slate mines and a natural water filtering system. Conveniently located away from the tourist crowds and yet near to the scenic attractions, this home offers a balanced getaway between solitude and experiences. The common area is more like a wooden cabin with glass windows, offering mesmerizing views of the greenery. With litchi orchards and an in-house polytunnel in the backyard, a feet-dipping pool, and a garden springing with peculiar plants and flowers, the home is nothing short of organic magic. A small garden behind the house with all the fruit and flower bearing trees is a frequent haunt for birds such as the Russet sparrows, Sibias, Rose Finches, Magpies, Bulbuls, Asian barbets, Tyrant flycatchers, Redstarts and many more. You may also spot Himalayan Griffons, Lammergeiers and Kites catching warmth on the terrace in the cold winters.
Seated amidst lush apple orchards, ZostelX Cheog is every bit magical. The village teems with the traditional lifestyle of Himachal, giving itself a distinct flavour altogether. With this getaway, enjoy blissful landscapes and savour local delicacies prepared by the host as you take a rejuvenating break from the hullabaloo of the city life.
An outlandish bloom of Pink Olga blossoms sprawls out on its fields just after the rains, winters come with snowfall and an enchanting silence, and summers here can be described in two words: festive and green. This is Rakchham, a small town slightly North of Chitkul and very much at the heart of the Sangla Valley of Himachal Pradesh. In this very hamlet, endowed with gorgeous sunsets, sits ZostelX Rakchham, a dot of brown and teal in the middle of endless greenery. A curvy mud path cuts through it and leads to the steps of the front yard, which lays adorned with apple trees and flamboyant flowers. The rooms here are submerged in nature, enjoying all the majestic sunrises, sunsets, furtive rainbows, and misty mountains. The food here is hot and the nights pleasantly breezy, making for two traits of a very dreamy holiday.
The sun shines brightly on the wheat fields, desert mountains, and mud houses, making their browns glow gold with the dawn. Time here moves slowly as kids make their way to the only school in the town, grannies milk the many cows, and the monks continue with their everyday chores in the world’s oldest monastery. This is life here in Tabo, a miniscule village in the Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh. Its lakes and waterfalls freeze in the winters, whereas summers bring the entire landscape to life. And in both, there is equal beauty, meant to be savoured separately. ZostelX Tabo is a quaint little home just off the highway, holding apricots in its front yard and views of the gorgeous rainbow mountains from its balconies and windows.
Turning into nothing less than the fantastical town of Narnia in winters and adorning a rich palette of dusty browns in summers, Kibber takes you back in time with its tranquillity and traditional lifestyle. The days here ring with Tibetan prayer chants and the chuckles of the gleeful villagers, whereas the nights bring thousands of stars into play up above. In the heart of this small town lies ZostelX Kibber, with its windows and front yard faced to the clustered toy-like white and brown mud houses of the hamlet. The town further looks at the dark brown mountains, and they, in turn, look up at shinier, snow-clad ones. Away from the bustle of Kaza and still close enough to surreal adventures like those of visiting the prominent landmarks or spotting Snow Leopards, Kibber is an experience in itself.
I have always wanted to meet random people and just connect with them.If you are like me than Zostel is the place to be.There you can talk to anyone anytime and anywhere.

Absolutely stunning, albeit isolated location, very friendly and accommodating staff, Large beds with two pillows. Laid back vibe, Pretty good garden, pet dogs, campfire nights, best place for backpackers from chaos of city.
I have to say that I am super impressed with Zostel so far! The Jaipur manager is amazing.Not only does the place have a central location, it is new, clean and has an amazing chill out lounge.Zostel is really good at what they are doing. I cannot wait to get back to Jaipur, although Udaipur and Jaisalmer Zostel await.
It's all together an amazing experience staying in zostel. U can never get bored around here... If ur travelling alone and you are even slightly like to socialize,zostel is the place to stay for, I met amazing people during my stay in zostel.
Great members of staff, excellent location, clean, new. This is by far the best place to stay in Jaipur. Everyone is helpful, kind and interested but not pushy. The lounge to relax is great and there is also a rooftop area. An excellent place!
Zostel was clean and well maintained with excellent location. But what really makes this place amazing is the people who work here! They are super helpful, kind, happy, interesting and interested.What can I say, I am zostel addicted now.
Amazing staff creates life in this hostel, they have activities planned to the hidden places which tourist don;t know, Clean, hot shower, plug socket and bed side lamp for every bed.Highly Recommended.
The ultimate place to stay in Ooty, quiet, clean and friendly atmosphere. I stayed in a dorm, they rent tents as well. Good hot water and water pressure. Toy train station in walking distance. Tuktuk ride to hostel 200rps.
