Lovely place with views of the Takiyeh Amir Chaqmaq with it's buzzing square. Small, yet very clean rooms, breakfast area full of flowers and plants and - most importantly - very helpful staff offering whatever support you might need during your stay. Additionally, I learnt about Lavashak which became one of my favorites during my trip in Iran. Never thought I'd love sour more than sweet :)

Date of stay: April 2019

We had a nice stay, but the day excursions could have been better:
- The amount of entrance fees should have been disclosed from the beginning. It was huge and not always worth it,
- Driver for the excursion/transfer to Perspepolis was not aware of where to go and did not speak English at all. We had a hard time looking for him after every stop.

I stayed at the Hostel for three nights during my day´s in Yazd. Travelling alone, I was able to meet other nice people here and started discovering the city sights together with them. The owner Sajad put so much love and devotion into the hostel, it makes you feel home. The hostel is cozy, clean and comfortable. I liked the breakfast served in the mornings with the best bread I had tasted in Iran. Sajad and his team helped to organize a day trip into the desert, we walked along and atop of dunes, eat after the sunset in the desert and slept under the sky gazing at the stars. Simply wonderful! Sajad also organized a day hike to Shirkooh (Lion) Mountain upon my request, other traveler joined us. Looking back, the stay at the hostel made Yazd an unforgettable experience! I can highly recommend to stay there.

Room tip: best view on square with mosque from balcony
