Hi! I am Zobu and I have a simple philosophy. The world is so big, and there’s so much to experience. You get only one life, and you need to Live It. Now.
I am living mine by traveling and I hangout at Zostel during all my adventures. They claim to be India’s first super-awesome-cool backpacker hostel chain, and since they’ve paid me to blabber about them, you need to listen to me.
They are the base camp for people like us who hate to spend time in boring 5-Star hotel rooms – watching TV and drinking that overpriced coffee. People who would kill their fat, balding bosses to chill and have a fun time with friends and those who love to meet new people. After all, who knows where and when you might run into your ‘Special One’ They offer youth-focused, centrally-located, world class accommodation facility that hits you immediately but doesn’t hit your pocket. In short, they are awesome! Currently you’ll find these guys in Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur, but very soon they’ll be everywhere – and I am waiting for that day. The day, when we all can travel longer, happier and better.
That’s about it. So, if you would like to touch and feel the real India and have some serious fun during your journey, I promise that Zostel will be a never-before experience – an experience to cherish. So, let’s plan how to take revenge from that evil fat balding boss…together >:)
See you soon
