Recently, if you have been on a backpacker trip in India, you must have come across the word ‘Zostel’ as it is the leading and most likely the only luxury hostel chain in the country. Zostel’s hostels come with a guaranteed fun stay with fellow travellers in an inexpensive yet enjoyable manner. But what if you are not into backpacking and would still like to experience the Zostel life with your loved ones? Don’t worry because here is Zostel X, your home away from home.
The concept behind Zostel X is to give you an experience nestled in amazing places hidden away from the mainstream travel circuit, away from the hustle-bustle of the crowd. Take it this way – Zostel hostels are meant for the backpacker community or solo travellers while Zostel X is for you and your family/friends to spend some valuable time together, farther away from cities and closer to nature.
Confused? How come Zostel properties are meant for families? Well, Zostel X Homes is a relatively new idea and therefore, is still pretty uncommon and not usually heard about. But read ahead and solve all your queries because congratulations, you have just discovered a gem of a destination for your next vacation!
Here are some key points to remember before you choose Zostel X.
