i spent four days in this small haven. everything was amazing i would’ve stayed there forever if i could!!! the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, and the atmosphere was breathtaking. after exploring this amazing city, coming back to howzak really felt like coming home! it is located in an older part of the town and the whole texture is very interesting and somewhat new and exciting for someone like me, who is used to the city. 10/10 would recommend

Short but fantastic stay at Howzak House Hostel. Friendly atmosphere, quality room and charming courtyard. Well located in Isfahan. And above all, Nassim (aka the queen of jokes!) and Babak (aka master of the setar) are great hosts, attentive, helpful and full of good advice! I can't wait to go back! (from Zabel Khan ;-))

We have stayed with Nasim and Babak twice, and that has become one of our best experiences. Howzak is a nice cozy house, comfy beds, very clean, good location, with great and colorful breakfasts, always-ready-tea as well as wonderful home-made meals. Above all, was Nasim and Babak themselves. They are extremely friendly and eager to help. while there, you'd feel at home! If I ever go back to Esfahan, I will definitely go there again and recommend it to everyone.

Nasim, the founder, is the best host. She has profound historical knowledge about Isfahan. She has helped us with the best food and sites.The breakfast was great. It was so calm and cozy to just sit in the sunlight with the traditional yard and pool view.

Iran was my last trip before the pandemic, and Howzak House remained the highlight of this trip to me. Nassim & Babak are both very kind and supportive, and never disappoint you in any question or concern you have about their culture and history, which is amazing. The house is tiny and cozy and very clean! everything has been designed to make you feel at peace and comfort and I loved that! the breakfast was always full of colors and fresh ingredients. I also did the Handicraft walk with Nassim which I enjoyed a lot! I missed this country and these kind people.
