Party Hostels in Chennai? Although alcohol is legal in this part of India, there isn’t much in the way of party hostels. In fact, partying isn’t really encouraged in this city.
When backpacking India there is no doubt that you will come across the successful hostel chain Zostel. And Zostel Chennai is set to impress!
This cosy backpacker hostel is right in the middle of the action.
“Every day in Zostel is happening, complete with doses of laughter and experiences.”
The team here stress that intoxication is not what it’s about. Instead, they prefer to share stories and chill vibes.
Put simply; this is not a party hostel.
Yet this doesn’t mean we’re providing you with a boring hostel, oh no.
Here are a few things to look forward to:
Air conditioned lounge room
Shared kitchen (unusual in India)
