Are you trying to find a hostel in Iran?
There are many good reasons for choosing a hostel in Iran or a guest house. For many, the main reason is the price. Hostels are great places for socializing with other travelers and sometimes even locals. Staying at a Persian hostel may be good for your wallet, but aside from that, who does not want to socialize with people while on a trip? Do you want to share your travel experiences with other tourists and hear theirs? Well then, a guest house is a good place for that.
We have decided to introduce you to some of the best hostels in Iran. While there are countless other hostels, many lack that sense of community, making a guest house sometimes preferable to a hotel.
Hostels in Tehran City
See You in Iran Hostel
The first guest house is the See You in Iran Hostel, in the Iranshahr neighborhood. This hostel in Iran identifies itself as “not just a hostel” but a tourist platform; it has a café inside, providing the opportunity for visitors to socialize with one another.
The Persian hostel has a very strong social media presence. At the time of writing this article, its Facebook page had more than 140k subscribers, a good portion of them active, posting everything from travel experiences to cultural tips about Iran.
This hostel in Iran offers services such as airport pickup and transportation. It provides you with “service packages”, which include a prepaid mobile SIM card in Iran, an Iranian debit card, and a public transport card working in Tehran.
The hostel in Iran features two dormitories, one for females and the other for males. It also has five private rooms, which are not a lot, so you should hurry to reserve, for they get booked fast.
Tehran Heritage Hostel
Tehran Heritage Hostel has two 10-bed dormitories, several private rooms, and a renovated house with modern facilities. The beds in the dorms are confined and isolated, allowing more privacy than what can be found in other hostels’ dorms. The Persian hostel is as near as it may get to major metro stations. Visiting the attractions in its vicinity may fill up a full day of your trip.
Parhami Traditional House
The Parhami Traditional House is located in a traditional house aged more than two centuries. The building is old but has been renovated in a fashion that has not betrayed its authenticity. The world-famous attractions, Shah Cheragh Mosque and Vakil Bazar are just a few minutes away on foot. This Persian hostel organizes Shiraz nomad tours.
The BB guest house is located in the same neighborhood as the previous one. The bathrooms are shared, but they are superbly clean. The staff is very friendly, and you do not want to miss having breakfast on the rooftop of this gorgeous Persian hostel.
Hostels in Yazd City
Yazd Oasis Hostel
Oasis Hostel is located in the old part of Yazd city. This hostel has dorms along with private rooms. As is typical for a hostel in Iran, this guest house is also a renovated antique house.
The Backpack Hostel in Yazd comprises two buildings located about 1 km from each other. The one found in the Old Town has four rooms, not private, and has 2 to 4 beds. The staff here are pretty helpful.
Hostels in Kashan City
When it gets to Kashan city, there is no shortage of wonderful hostels. Green House is located at equal distances from the Iran railway network and Kamal-ol-Molk square, the latter being the beating heart of Kashan, surrounded by many attractions. The challenge for us was to choose between them.
The hostel interior is fascinating, decorated in a traditional style with a cozy feel. It gives you the feeling of staying at a traditional home, which is alluring even to Iranians, let alone non-Iranians.
The hostel has four private rooms with 2 to 5 beds and two dorms, one for each gender. Like many hostels, the rooms have shared bathrooms.
This is another antique house turned into a hostel. The Persian hostel is located in the old town of Kashan, close to almost everything Kashan has to offer. As promised on their website, the transfer from the bus terminal to the hostel is free.
