I'd always wanted to stay in a Zostel and since the one in Agra matched our budget and was located super close to the Taj, it was our first choice. Our room had a big enough bed, a make-shift looking mirror (no dresser) and a simple attached bathroom. My favourite part was the in-house cafe- it served decent food and had beautiful travel themed graffiti and 'thank you' scribbles drawn by travellers from all over the world.

I have a special place for the hostel life in my heart as I missed my graduation days in which I have lived in hostel in Jalandhar.Recently , I have heard about the India's first hostel chain named Zostel which has existence in 15 cities of India now.So , I found the Zostel Agra which is nearest to Delhi and planned a weekend getaway from Delhi To Agra.Day 1 : We started early morning from Delhi and instead of the faster Yamuna Expressway we took NH 2 to enjoy some roadside Dhaba's food. So , we took our first halt after crossing Palwal at some of the famous murthal dhabas which are now open on NH2 also. We ordered the typical dhaba food i.e Paranthas and chai in the rainy weather(monsoon season in North India). After having our breakfast we resumed our journey and in the afternoon we reached the Zostel , Agra and confirmed our booking at the reception.
