Quick Introduction to Jaipur

Average price for a bed: Hostels in Jaipur ARE CHEAP! They cost 3€ – 7€ per night for a bed in a dorm. A private room starts from 7€ up to 18€ per night. This is a rough average just to give you an idea.

Prices always depend on season and holidays. Please always check exact rates on Hostelworld.com or Booking.com.

Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.

Student hostels in India: It is quite common for students in India to live in a hostel during their studies. Be aware that these are usually not the nicest ones because they are cheap and awkwardly located.

Plus the fact that students aren’t always the most sociable… they have work to get done!

On the plus side; there are a bunch of cool backpacker hostels in Jaipur. As a traveller, you should opt for the backpacker hostels, including the great selection in this article.

So, please, make sure you check if your hostel is for students or actually travellers. It makes a huge difference in India.
