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 socialising with other travellers and sometimes even locals. Staying at a Persian hostel may be good for your wallet, but aside from that, who does not want to socialise 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.
The first guest house is See You in Iran, in the Iranshahr neighbourhood. This hostel in Iran identifies itself as “not just a hostel” but a touristic platform; it has a café inside, providing the opportunity for the visitors to socialise 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 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.
As the name suggests, this hostel in Iran 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 organises Shiraz nomad tours.
This guest house is located in the same neighbourhood as the previous one. The bathrooms are shared, but they are superbly clean. The staff are very friendly, and you do not want to miss having breakfast on the rooftop of this gorgeous Persian hostel.
Oasis 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.
This Persian hostel 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.
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 cosy 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.
