Popularly called the ‘Queen of the Hills’, this bustling hill station has been one of the favourite holiday destinations of Indian travellers. Initially established in the era of British India to serve as the summer headquarters of Madras government, Ooty was quick in the transitioning into a hill station where people came to unwind and to escape into nature throughout the year. The establishment of numerous tea estates throughout the city and nearby hills make for a picturesque drive. In the tiny town of Lovedale, right next to Ooty, lies Zostel. Away from the hustle of the city, this nature-loving Zostel offers unparalleled views of the Nilgiris. Besides dormitories and private rooms, you can choose to reside in a tent too and wake up to the sun shining from behind the mountains.

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.
Rooms are spacious and clean with beautiful, comfortable beds, the view can't be beat, well worth being a little out of town, I stayed a lot longer than I planned for.peaceful atmosphere really lends itself to taking a break from your adventures to read a few books.Definetlycoming back.
