This Hostel Is Close To Jaipur’s Popular Sites & You’ll Pay Around INR 500 A Night

    Great For


    That road trip to Jaipur finally materialised? Book yourself into Jaipur Jantar Hostel to save money and travel time as you go exploring around. It’s clean, good-looking and also a place that broke writers, couples and backpackers absolutely love.

    Move Over, Budget Hotels

    With six rooms, all spic and span, and one of the cleanest dorms in the city, it’s not a surprise that broke travellers love it. The decor, ambience and even the names of the rooms are a colourful tribute to the local culture of the pink city. The bunk beds are all sweetly partitioned with curtains, and make sure you can read in peace with tiny reading lights.

    The teal courtyard is probably our favourite part of the property, for its always awash with sunlight, or the common area that they lovingly call the chaupal {aren’t the mattresses and traditional coffee tables adorable?}. The common kitchen is cute as a button, and they even give a homey breakfast for a mere INR 100 a day.

    At Jantar, it’s like Greece and Rajasthan had a lovechild. Why, you ask? Well, the teal and white colour theme is offset by block-printed bedsheets or the traditional floor muddahs. When you tire of playing foosball or reading in that upar chaupal, do hire a bike and pedal around the city. Stop by at Johri and Bapu bazaar to buy bandhani dupattas, precious stones and bangles. You can obviously do the typical Hawa Mahal and Amer Fort but if we were you, we’d sign up for hot air balloon ride.

    So, We're Saying...

    The only bummer is that the WiFi isn’t Delhi-level swift but hopefully, good company and tired feet {from all the local sightseeing} will make sure that you don’t miss Netflix too much.

    P.S. It’ll be a crime to leave without a massive swig of the Lassiwaala’s thick lassi that comes in khullads. If it’s good enough for Amitabh Bachchan and Shobhaa De {yes, they’ve had it too}, maybe it’s good enough for you?
