Zostel, the trailblazing chain of hostels catering to backpackers around the world, recently reached a significant milestone that marks a decade of reshaping the travel landscape in India. On August 15th, 2023, the company celebrated its ten-year anniversary, commemorating a journey that has not only revolutionised the way we travel but also fostered a vibrant community of adventurers, explorers, and culture enthusiasts. To celebrate 10 years in the industry, the brand released an amazing celebrations video and an even better offer for its customers.
The History of Zostel
Founded in 2013 by a group of visionary friends, Zostel embarked on its journey with a pioneering spirit and a vision to transform travel experiences into something more immersive and memorable. The brand aimed to transcend the typical hotel stay and turn travel into an exhilarating journey filled with adventure, creativity, and connections. Over the past ten years, it has achieved precisely that. Its hostels have become synonymous with a vibrant and youthful atmosphere, offering affordable and comfortable stays to travellers from all corners of the world. With each property in the last 10 years, they have managed to weave the local culture and community into the fabric of the experience, empowering entrepreneurship and creating lifelong memories for its guests.
The Hilarious Anniversary Celebrations
To share the joy of completing 10 years, Zostel took to its official Instagram page with a video that had its audience in splits. The video showcased snippets of the brand’s journey and the celebration of the team which might not be the best party and yet it was the best party ever. With its hilarious mishaps, quirky moments, and heartwarming connections that have defined their experience, the celebration mirrored the same. The video opens with a narration describing their strong team who are all pumped to attend the birthday celebrations. From the montage of struggling to find a cab to the last-minute run to find the matching footwear, the celebration was an honest show. However, what truly made the video special was the location. Instead of an uptown club, the team celebration begins in the middle of nowhere dancing their hearts out to shehnai and dhol music. Truly one-of-a-kind celebration, we’d say.
Special Offers for Customers
In gratitude for the unwavering support of its patrons, Zostel extended a heartwarming gesture on its anniversary day. Guests checking in at any Hostel or Home on the 10 years celebration day, were greeted with a delightful surprise – complimentary stays. Each guest was handed a special note revealing this unexpected treat, setting the tone for a day of celebration. The festivities continued with complimentary beverages and a captivating evening party, fostering an atmosphere of joy and connection. Zostel’s commitment to its customers went beyond mere hospitality; it was a sincere expression of gratitude for a decade of shared experiences.
A Diversity of Experiences
With over 80 properties spread across more than 60 destinations in India and Nepal, it has established itself as a cornerstone of the backpacking community. These properties are strategically located, spanning hidden gems and offbeat locations within well-known destinations. Whether it’s a rustic cottage in the Himalayas or a colourful beachside hostel in Goa, it caters to a spectrum of travellers, from adventure seekers to those seeking tranquillity. Beyond comfortable lodging, they pride themselves on curating unconventional experiences with Zostel Experiences– from interactive workshops and local cultural immersions to thrilling outdoor activities – ensuring that each guest’s journey is marked not just by a place to sleep, but by authentic connections and unforgettable moments.
As Zostel completed its remarkable journey of ten years, it did more than mark a milestone; it celebrated a legacy of transformation. From reshaping the way we travel to fostering connections and promoting local cultures, its impact has been profound. The brand’s anniversary video encapsulated not just picturesque destinations, but the spirit of adventure, camaraderie, and laughter that defines the Zostel experience.
