Zostel Delhi

ZOSTEL, DELHI. . This is how my stay in Delhi looks like. It was my first ever experience to stay at any such backpacker’s hostel. . This place has totally different kind of vibes. We meet, interact , make friends with people coming from different parts of the world. This place is full of life, full of stories. . At the reception I found three girls, coming all the way from Philippines, I was surprised to know that they didn’t have any permanent residence!!! They’re just traveling from a place to place!!!( I knw Indians k liye ye digest karna thoda mushkil hoga) . We live in shared dorms, sleep on the bunk beds, between people yet without disturbing their privacy or personal space. . . It is a wonderful experience to join the daily walking tour to different places around the city. . . The experience is worth living, @zostel , I look forward to visit more and more places nd spend such quality time at different Zostels. . . #zostel #zosteldelhi #backpacking #bavkpackers #delhi #delhidiaries #traveller #traveldiary #travellife

Zostel Leh

@Regranned from @wittywanderer121 – I was always a miser in terms of choosing properties for my solo trips, the reason, ofcourse “#Budget “. The maximum I had spent ever was Rs 800/- for a night in a hotel in #Tawang . 2 months before I was heading to Leh, I saw a Facebook ad of #ZostelLeh and decided that this is definitely going to be my place of stay in Leh. And the property didn’t disappoint at all. #Graffiti on the walls, #ladakh map , the common chilling area, helpful staff and a cozy ambience, all what you need on a holiday away from home. At Rs 500/- a night for a 6-bed dorm which includes WiFi, this place has a lot to offer in terms of Chilling. So hey you solo travellers planning to go to Leh or any other location, do check for the availability of a #Zostel , I bet you won’t regret your decision. #Wittywanderer . . #solotravel #solotraveltips #bagpacker #lehladakh #hostel #budgettravel #hostelroom #ladakh2017 #vacation #Travelsolo #itravelsolo #indiapictures #nomadsofIndia #_woi #hostelsofindia #shotonOnePlus – #regrann
