Be it from the Manali route or the Srinagar route, the scenery on the way will leave you spellbound.

Private Delux Room was good. Location of the hostel is also good - close to main market. But access to the property, parking space within/ outside the property, cleanliness in the room and basic amenities within the room is an issue. Common area on the terrace is good, staff is good. But ovearll, it was below expectation and i would say, there are better options available (both - in private room as well as dormatary categories) in Leh.

Room Tip: Private room is still a better deal than the mixed-bed dormatory in terms of value for money.

This is the place to be when you are travelling solo or as a couple or in a group or anyhow. I am in so love with this place, people and vibes which I received. Fabulous hospitality, its more friendly than formal. Easy to get along staff. i booked myself a standard room but most of the time found myself slouching in common area. It is so comfortable and cozy. Very close to leh market, you can literally walk even on the day you arrive without any trouble of acclimatisation. Staff are very approachable every time you have any questions. Special mentions Willy, Ritesh, Divesh. You guys rock!!

Great place to stay in Leh. The best part is the location and the people around. We stayed for 3 nights in a private room. We were there during the end of the season and this was one of the few places which were still running full and travelers from around the world. From getting permits to booking scooty, we were able to get it all done with their help. Thanks to Devesh, Ali & Vishal.

Zostel has been my go to place ever since I got to know about it. Leh zostel particularly is so beautiful and has the most amazing staff. If you are travelling alone, they will make sure that you have a great time. Devesh and ali are the life of that place. Be it travel advice or partying, they know and have it all. If its leh, zostel should be a pit stop for sure.
