This was the third Zostel that I stayed with in India and was extremely disappointed. They only have 3 washrooms in the whole hostel - two of which were out of service during our stay. The one was was working was the ensuite one in our room, which is fun when everyone in the whole hostel continues to come into your room to use the toilet. After some other issues, we asked to check out early as it was not an enjoyable time in Zostel Chennai. I do appreciate that they were still new at the time we stayed, however I believe it was not up to the Zostel standard that I had come to know with the other ones I stayed at within my month in India.

Zostel Chennai is something different.

Beautiful staff runs this place and they immediately make you feel comfortable and at home. It's located in the center of Chennai but still in a quiet street with lots of delicious food opportunities just around the corner and Marina beach closeby. Zostel offers a chilled spot to escape the chaos of the city inside as well as on their lovely rooftop. The dorms are clean, there is a big kitchen and washing machine. The exceptional staff is happy to help and guide you with everything else you need!

I was lucky enough to stay here for a month and it feels like I am leaving my new zostelfamily behind. Definitely the best place to stay when in Chennai!

The hostel has a great atmosphere with a large common area, friendly staff, and everything you need for staying a few days in Chennai. There is a nice kitchen and laundry service if needed. There are some good eateries nearby.
