To get away from the hustle and noise round the town, planning a quick getaway with a friend to this Magnificent place, Zostel. You could either opt for a cab or just take a walk as the distance is not too much, you get to explore the place, the culture, see the lush greenery. Located around 3 KMs from Panchgani bus stop, Zostel is a backpacking tourism space, which was captivating right from the entry, as soon as we entered, the manager assisted us and briefed us about our stay. They have a unique concept in which they've turned shipment containers into stay spaces, they have two segments i.e 1) Green containers: These are the dormitories which can accommodate up to 6 people, recommended for one who simply wants to explore, connect with new people. 2) Grey containers: These are the private spaces which can hold up to 2 people. Recommended for couples or those who prefer having some me time. We were given a dorm at the lowest floor which had a beautiful open field, followed by moody sky and mountains all around, right outside the door. The set up is super efficient, clean and cosy. They have everything necessary, keeping it minimal. * Dorm cost: It was 800/- Per person (On a weekday i.e Tuesday) About the recreational aspect, they have a common space where they've got huge seating spaces right from chairs to mini couches and a big table, you could simply play dart, board games like chess, monopoly, uno, and as he sun sets down, jam up with your buddies by the bonfire! They also have their canteen and they have everything right from beverages to snacks and main course. Psst.. do try the butter chicken! It's good stuff! Overall, we had a wonderful experience, the comfortable silence, airy atmosphere, greenery all around, some good company. Also, the service is great, so +2 for that! Highly recommend everyone to try this place out!
