I was searching for a room in Chennai and Zostel Chennai came on the top in the search result. I had never heard about Zostel before so I was not sure how that place would be but after reading other travellers review and seeing the photos of the room, I decided that I will try out that place.
I was pleasantly surprised after reaching Zostel. Footwear are not allowed inside and all travellers have to remove it outside - the result, it was super clean inside. There is a common area where all travellers can sit and chat and there is a small book shelf. The (spacious) room, beds and bathroom were clean - not a spot anywhere. They provide lockers/space to keep your things. All the rooms have unique name. Although it is in the centre of the city, it is in a quiet street. One has to walk for few minutes to reach the main road and you will find good restaurants. Kitchen and washing machine facilities are also provided. The rooftop/terrace is another place to hang out.
What to say about the people who run that place? Chitra and Dwarak are super cool, friendly, polite and helpful. They make your stay memorable.
Would I recommend Zostel Chennai? Well, let me put it this way - if I go to Chennai again, I would not stay anywhere other than Zostel Chennai. More
