Zostel Agra
Ranked #1 of 207 Speciality Lodging in Agra
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 February 2017

Lots of places for tired backpackers to chill and relax. There is a breakfast that is offered and is pretty cheap for what you get. There is a free laundry machine when it is available. There is a place to dry clothes. There are puppies and dogs to play with and keep you entertained. A roof top deck to sit as well as lots of seating both inside and out. They take non-indian credit cards and can order you a cab if you need one. The beds are comfy and the rooms are pretty warm. We had our own bathroom and it suited our needs. There was a gap in the window that let in mosquitos, but I had a roll of duct tape and fixed the problem day 1. So after we spent a half an hour killing all the blood suckers in our room everything was perfect. The host was great and provided anything they could when requested. It is a close walk to shopping and the Taj mahal.

Room Tip: All of your basic needs should be met with this hotel

The Zostel in Agra is the perfect place to stay for a backpacker in India. It´s very well located close to a ticket counter and within 10 minutes walking distance to the Taj Mahal.

The Zostel has very nice staff, a big facility with a cute cafe and clean rooms.

It's clean and cheap with loads of areas to chill out. Puppies to play with in the garden and really helpful guys running it. They sorted us a train ticket which saved a trip to the station. Cheap food in the cafe although brekkie wasn't great. 10 mins to the taj so ideal for that.
