Basic Information

Zostel Hospitality Pvt. Ltd was established in August 2013, by seven co-founders Akhil Malik, Dharmveer Singh Chouhan, Paavan Nanda, Tarun Tiwari, Chetan Singh Chauhan, Abhishek Bhutra, and Siddharth Janghu. Zostel operates 35 hostels in India and 2 hostels in Nepal. The startup, which is now tapping international partners, is looking to add 40-50 new properties under various sub-brands. Some the locations where Zostel has a presence are Alleppey, Aurangabad, Barot, Bir, Mussoorie, Ooty, Mcleodganj etc. to name a few. Since early 2017, in addition to providing social accommodation, Zostel has come up with a new segment - Zostel Escape - wherein they try to provide local, authentic experiences to the guests. These experiences are again handpicked and conducted by the local people and are intended to take the guests beyond the obvious and touristy destinations and experiences. See more
