Good location. Near many must-see in Shiraz: Pink Mosque, bazaars, bath house, citadel... Room was lovely, very tradition with beautiful decorations. Ceiling was low though, but still good Nice yard Friendly staff

I loved my stay at Golshan. The place itself is beautiful, cozy and perfectly located but what makes it so special is the people who run it. It was my favourite place I stayed in Iran, and also the cheapest place I stayed.

Nice traditional hotel in a very good location to explore Shiraz - all main sites at walking distance. The hotel has a charming internal court with little garden where you can enjoy breakfast, some simple food and a tea, nice rest compared to city traffic. Room was nice although maybe needs some renovation.

This hostel is located in the old city center, less than 5 min away from the basar. It is considerably cheaply priced and nice staff and nice host. The rooms have the necessary comfort, private restrooms, western toilets, the only things missing would be sufficient water pressure, a thought through shower system and not stone like mattresses. Overall it's highly...

The actual hotel looks quite nice, unfortunately the dorm is in a second building a few hundred metres away down some sketchy alleys filled with people smoking ice (meth) at night. The second building is pretty grimy has the atmosphere of a crack den. Staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. When we tried to book a taxi with an Iranian friend...

Traveling with two other female friends, we rented both the double rooms with private bathroom just above the courtyard. Greeted by the very friendly Pavriz, (who clearly has dedicated a lot of his life to the hotel) with tea at the moment we arrived, shown to our rooms, everything was carried out in a very relaxed manner. The rooms themselves...

First of all you should know that the dorms are not in the main cool and cosy building but in another building a few streets from there. The dorms are good but the atmosphere there not so much. The only guy working in the dorm building did not make us feel safe, he wasn't talking nicely to the people with...

I would recommend this hostel for 3 reasons in particular (apart from being clean, affordable and well located): 1. The central patio is lovely (like in many Iranian hotel/hostels), but this one has a special vibe. Its just a great place to hang when it gets too hot and meet other travelers. 2. The host, Parviz (I might have written...

Good option for backpackers! Bed in a dorm is $15. People working at the hostel are super nice and always helpful. Especially mister Ali is really cool! Rooms are very tidy and clean, and the breakfast is very good. Hostel also has a kitchen and a cool courtyard! Bathrooms could use a clean though, but no big deal! Would really...

This hostel is very charming in the old quarter of Shiraz. The property is the original beautiful traditional house. The location is so close to the main tourist attractions such as the pink mosque, bazaar and much more within walking distance. Room is clean and basic. The atmosphere is so relax. The breakfast is wonderful with nice juicy watermelon to...
