This is one the best hostels I've come across and is quite hard to beat. Zostel Udaipur has two things working in its favor: the location and the people. As a backpacker, I couldn't ask for anything better.
Zostel is located on the banks of Lake Pichola right next to City Palace. The views are simply unparalleled. If you want stellar views of the monsoons hugging the Aravalli mountain peaks and, of course, the Lake Palace, Zostel gives you some of the best views Udaipur can offer. Grab a few beers on the roof top restaurant, watch the sun set behind the mountains, and see the lake dazzle in the night lights of the Lake Palace. Couldn't ask for more.
The people at Zostel are incredible. I met some very interesting travelers from around the world and the management itself is outstanding. After customer service nightmares in India, the management's attitude at Zostel was more than refreshing. They even mailed me some souvenirs that I left behind! Quite an incredible bunch of folks!
I hope to see them in more locations on my next visit to India. Keep up the good work, keep zosteling!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Shaharkot is India's best lake-facing room hotel. Like a cherry on the cake it rests with one wall facing the great city palace, the other facing the ageless Lake Pichola, while being the best located property in the heart of the town. The property maintains its calm and relaxing feel. Such is the architectural excellence of the property that each and every room has a wide waterfront lake. ... more less
