Travellers' Choice
Tucked away in between mountains decorated with apple orchards, oaks, deodars, and pines, Zostel Homes Mashobra offers the perfect blend of a laid-back escape and an adventurous holiday. You’ll be welcomed to our pleasant abode with a garden and a sprawling front yard, the ideal spaces for spending leisure time reading, sipping tea, or stargazing. On one end lies a glimmering stone-and-wood cottage that serves as the hang-out area and teems with the games of billiards and table tennis. Embracing the breezes and sunshine are the rooms, that come with personal balconies so that you always have a piece of the mountainous landscape to yourself. Adding to the comfort of fluffy beds and utterly warm blankets are the home-cooked meals here, which are delicious, filling, and everything you’d love to have up North. The house is hosted by the Sood family, who have been a part of Himachal Pradesh since forever.

Our stay at Zostel Mashobra was great. The room was decent, the service was good. The food was tasty. The usp of the property is the view. The rooms overlook the valley. The approach road was tricky - that’s the only negative point. Overall a positive experience and definitely recommend.

It was lovely to stay at Zostel homes Mashorba. The accommodation is 5kms away from the main road, however Praveen ji the manager was very helpful in giving us the perfect directions. The accommodation is very nicely maintained and even after 6years it looks like brand new property. The hospitality is amazing. My kids loved there stay. Perfect place to relax. Would like to return to the property and stay with them again.

Great location. Really loved the character of the hotel. Service was Terrific and Room was 5 Star.The lounge area outside was also very cool, live music in the evenings overlooking awesome. It’s clean and has a lot of comfort items to make you feel at home. Overall a nice hotel, and from this experience will consider other ZOSTEL now. The best stay ever.

This place is so isolated and far from the main area (30 minutes of the terrible road which is almost non-motorable) that u will feel like going back even before reaching this place. Our Innova was also broke down on the way. There is no proper road to this property. As soon as we reached the hotel and checked in, we discovered that the flush in the washroom is not working and that too we discovered after my son (11 years) used the washroom. Overall a terrible place. STRICTLY AVOID.

Response from Tanu Sood, Owner at Zostel Homes Mashobra
Responded 9 May 2022
Dear Mr. Ghosh Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We truly value the opinions of our guests and we apologize that we did not meet your expectations. Providing our guests with the best possible hospitality and service has always been our mission. We want you to know that we truly enjoy sharing our passion for our destination with visitors and want you to walk out the door feeling refreshed.” Thank you for bringing this situation to our attention. First and foremost, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused you. With respect to approach road we would like to clarify it has been clearly mentioned in the website about location of the Property and it is evidently mentioned that 5 km offroad/bumpy. It is responsibility of the esteem guest when booking a property to enquire about the location then only book. In case We have not mentioned about location of the property then WE as property owners are fully responsible, otherwise being an educated traveller it is responsibility of the esteemed guest to enquire about location. We would like to mention that the property manager called the guest from time to time when booking was confirmed to the property through OTA and message was also dropped to the guest about location. The message of the property manager was duly acknowledged by the esteemed guest and reply was also received from the guest. Even our car escorted guest vehicle so that guest could reach the property comfortably. The property provides free pickup and drop from Mashobra with the help of trained driver having experience of more than 20 years. The guest was not happy with the distance hence left the property with one hour of reaching the property since the guest was intended to stay near City. With respect to non working of flush it is mechanical issue which may occur any point of time and could have been repaired in case the issue was raised at the property. We believe that Online reviews are a powerful tool to express once opinion but it should not be misused and abused. An honest review by a guest who has lot of reviews to his credit are always welcome, but please don't shift onus on the property when the your choice proved wrong due to laxity i.e. intended stay was within city and booked a secluded property. Tanu Sood (owner)

Pros: 1.Excellent view of the surrounding mountains and valley. 2. staff is really courteous and demonstrate great hospitality Cons: 1. We thought it was a homestay since it was listed in zostel homes. But, were disappointed to find that it is actually a hotel. Our next zostel home that we stayed was actually a homestay and gave us a completely homely experience ( which is what we wanted) . 2. The road to the home is indicated as bumpy in the zostel description. I think bumpy is an understatement. Please do not plan to go there with your own car. The road is extremely narrow, crumbly and dangerous at places. Only if you are a local can you navigate it. We had an SUV and we still were scared to death to drive on this road especially after a 5 hour drive from Chandigarh. 3. Since the road is inaccessible, you are housebound since you cant risk driving back up to Mashobra ( the house is 5kms away and below Mashobra). We actually skipped our plans to catch up with friends in Shimla because of the road. We later came to know that the house staff drop and carry back guests to and fro from Mashobra. But, it still restricts your plans since you are dependent on the staff and have to come back before dark.

I had a great stay in Zostel Home Mashobra. I could easily given 5 stars but I had to cut out 1 star because of the road. Zostel home Mashobra is located in Sehgar village which is almost 5 km down from main Mashobra. Now that 5 km stretch is really really terrible. I was told that road was bumpy but it is beyond bumpy and no normal driver can drive on that road. Kudos to Tilku Bhaiya who is expert in driving on that road he picked and dropped us on regular basis. Had he not there, it would have been impossible for us to reach at the property. Zostel must look into this issue at the earliest. I have seen other people too in Zostel who were anguish by that road and vowed to never come in that property ever again. I understand that Zostel can't do much in this regard because it can only be done by the government and I have heard from villagers that they are hopeful that road will be constructed before election in October 2022. But at least Zostel should be transparent about this situation on their websites. The word 'Bumpy road' which they have mentioned in their website is not enough. It is impossible to drive for a normal person who is coming from plain areas. Coming to the hotel, it is without a doubt 5 star accommodation with all the modern facilities available. They also have a kitchen where fresh food is prepared for everyone individually. Staff is kind and polite and it provides a great scenic beauty. I really didn't want to leave this place. That is how beautiful this place is. They also have a lovely dog 'Duggu' who can friend anyone in a moment. The only point of concern is the road but Zostel provides pick and drop services and Tilku Bhaiya is really helpful. So, I'd say to give it a shot atleast for a day.

It's as quite as it can possibly be. This is the absolute perfect choice if you want to leave the hustle bustle behind. The food is an absolute match to all of this as well. There were no connection issues. Could work seamlessly.

We had a memorable experience at Zostel Mashobra this weekend. The location was scenic and far away from the hustle bustle of Shimla. The road to the resort was slightly broken over the last 20 mins, but it also helped make the trip more adventurous as we had a driver. The view from the resort was beautiful and the air was fresh. The rooms were spacious and the service was exemplary. In particular, would like to thank Krishna and Praveen for the great experience. After leaving the resort, I realised that I had left my wallet in the resort and within 2 hours the resort folks called me and offered to courier my wallet for free. Great experience! Thanks to the team!
