With the magnetic pull of its old world charms, one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world will welcome you with open arms, soak you in the holy aura it commands, and make you feel lost within the world different from what you have ever experienced. Varanasi, with its narrow alleys, overcrowded streets, and religious air, is a whole package. Witness the evening prayers at the ghats of the Ganges and we promise you would not want to return. Take a morning walk across all the Ghats to witness the striking diversity within the city. And don’t forget to fill yourself up with the delightful street food all around the city. Located right in the heart of the city and yet not far from the Ghats, Zostel Varanasi provides the right comforts one looks for. A place to relax amidst the chaos of the city, we offer mixed dormitories as well as the female-exclusive ones.

The folks at Zostal maintain a perfect balance between fun and rules. They ensure that the guests are keeping the premises safe, clean, and fun to engage with each other while offering plenty of space to hang out and jam. One event or the other keeps happening every day that offers plenty to involve yourself in. I did not eat food at the Zostal so I cannot comment about it. But the place is pretty cool. It is even safe for families. We had a couple join us for even celebration along with their 5-year-old daughter. They seemed happy :)

Solo trip to Varanasi was in my list from past many years but it seems just not happening, but post lockdown I got the chance and what better than Zostel for backpackers trip. It was 3 nights stay, though guests were limited due to pandemic but they overall clean and tidy place. Rooms and property were clean and hygienic, staff was nice and cooperative. Though location is just fine, as you walk inside a not so clean narrow lane, but other than that rest of the things were good.

Zostel Varanasi was a great place to stay for my 3 day stay in Varanasi. The crowd is amazing and I met some interesting people during my stay. Special shout out to Dheeraj Pandey, our host, who always had great recommendations for to-dos in Varanasi. He is a great conversationalist as well, and always ready to cater to the travelers. 5/5 for my stay here.

Amazing interiors, super supportive staff and a cozy space to sleep is all what a solo traveler needs. Zostel Varanasi is the perfect place for enjoying a holiday in Varanasi. Raj took great care of me and never let me feel that I was the only female residing in the property. The cafe provided me with simple yet tasty homely food. I stayed in the dorm where I met some amazing fellow travelers. It was a beautiful experience indeed.

I m happy write this review coz it really made my time so much wonderful. The service is good, it's like they are the "Jinni", just ask them anything and it will be done instantly. There are really good and awesome people with whom you can hangout or share stuff you like, but for that you need to get out of the rooms and visit terrace 😂. It has a cafe on terrace and really good place to hangout. Lastly I would like to wish this team all the very best for their future. Keep the same spirit boys.😎

Amazing place with same vibes. This is how I'm gonna describe Zostel varanasi. Located in the heart of the city,the property is near to Ghats, temple and all the lipsmacking streetfood that banaras has to offer. The hostel is pretty much clean and have super clean washrooms which is a must for hygienic purposes. The rooftop cafe provides good food and beverages to smack on. Whether you need some me time or you just need to chill out with friends, rooftop is a perfect place. Raj, Shubham and Ateesh are the perfect hosts in all sense and act as guides knowing all the getaways the city has to offer. Believe me when I say this, you won't regret your stay here!
