Right from the beginning I kept calling them to check if it would be safe to travel to Srinagar... and they kept saying that there is absolutely no problem. Trust me, Asif Bhai made our stay so comfortable that words would fall short to thank him enough. And Rafiq bhai’s Dal, oh that’s something we loved to the core. As regards the location, it’s a little drive from the main dal lake. The location is close to Nishat garden. All in all, an amazing stay. P.S. Don’t miss the book in the book rack: Under My Blue Sky KASHMIR 😍

Zostel Srinagar was my first ever Zostel experience and while it could have been better with a little more attention to the small things, overall this is a decent place to stay at. The location is good - conveniently located about a 10 mins walk away from Nishat gardens and a few eateries. The staff is friendly and a special shoutout to Mr. Shaukat who coordinated with us throughout our stay from arranging an airport pickup to ordering meals etc - his patience and help is much appreciated. His partner Sohail and the on-site help are just as good. The deluxe rooms are neat and comfortable enough. There is a common area with some table top games and comfortable seating and a second indoor seating space right next to the reception. There is some room for improvement in terms of providing some room essentials and toilet supplies (there are none). The linen and towels could have been cleaned better as well. You can get food ordered through the staff from the one restaurant they have partnered with. You can of course venture out into the neighborhood and the rest of the city for other options. There is rooftop seating with a view of Dal lake that makes for good sunset views. Unfortunately, during out stay the rooftop seating was kind of a mess. A pretty large and noisy group soured the experience of the second night a tad - I wish the staff was able to do handle them better. Overall, this is a decent place to stay at when visiting the city with some very helpful people around, even if it leaves a little something to be desired.

I would like to thank Rafiq who has been exceptionally polite and pleasant person who was always ready to help. Rafiq had demonstrated excellent customer service and looking after the guests as one of their own. Had an amazing time in Srinagar Zostel. It’s a must visit place:)

Stayed one night with Zostel Srinagar and really enjoyed the hospitality of the staff and the place. While its located away from the centre of Srinagar it close to Nishad Bagh and Dal Lake (not the main entrance).

I was fortunate to get a glimpse of the trademark Kashmiri hospitality at Zostel Srinagar. Warm hosts, good food, excellent stay & long, winding conversations into the night - what more do you want? Come visit this beautiful city! You'd be surprised & you'll go back with an experience you'll never forget.
