Established in 2013, Zostel is the first and largest chain of backpacker’s hostels in India. The company was started with the goal of promoting traveling as a lifestyle, amid the lack of safe yet cost-effective accommodation options in the mainland. Today, Zostel takes pride in high quality and top-rated hostels at 20 locations across India and Nepal. We strive to rise up to the fast-evolving system of over 200 backpacker hostels in the region.
Apart from offering trustworthy accommodation, Zostel features Zostel Escape – a series of handpicked activities that give guests authentic experiences. These are led by locals who take tourists beyond frequented destinations and into India’s hidden gems. With time, we aim to take Zostel Escape across all our branches to fully play our role in fostering community development and meaningful travel while creating a fun, credible brand.
