Travelers beware! A search on HostelWorld, HostelBookers, even GoogleMaps will tell you that Nirvana Hostel (now called Jaguar Hostel, by the way - Nirvana was a franchise that broke up) is on a tiny side street called Vishnu Marg, several hundred meters from the wall of the Pink City. This is not the case. Read the rest of their description... More

The staff are lovely, very friendly, helpful and can't do enough for you. The location is quite far out from the pink city but in some respects that's nice, away from the noise and pollution. (It also happens to be situated in one of the safest areas on Jaipur). Breakfast IS included and the staff are happy to make you... More

Holy Cow did the job for the price. It was a little out of the way of the pink city but that wasn't a problem once we found a rickshaw driver who was willing to be paid per day to pick us up from the hostel and take us back, the distance didn't really effect us. I wouldn't recommend staying... More

I stayed two nights and Nirvana Hostel or Holy Cow Hostel (the same) and the overall feeling I got from the place was just shady. I can't put my finger on it, but that's just the feeling I got. It was unsafe or anything, but it certainly didn't help that I was the only guest at the time. The room... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and felt very at home. The owners were lovely, they own 4 of these hostels and we stayed in another in Delhi. When we arrived they had travelled all the way just to welcome us (a good 8hour journey). The rooms were standard hostel, bunk rooms. But they had A/C and WiFi.

The extremely helpful and friendly family made my stay very comfortable. It's is a very relaxed hostel and a great place to meet other travellers! The food is great and the grounds are beautiful!! Both dorms have a/c and an addition fan.

ITS ALL LIES!!!! We stayed here for 4 days and have never stayed in a place so unlike the description! We have been travelling for 7 months now, and this is the first bad review we have had to give as we realise that you get what you pay for. We arrived early morning and were shown to our room,...
