Staying at this family-run place means a great backpacking vibe, which is just perfect if that’s what you’re looking for. There are dorms on offer here, but it’s all ’bout those private rooms: they’re hotel quality for a small amount of coin.

It’s the BEST hostel with a private room in Jaipur though because the owners can arrange tours for you around the city, which is helpful – and then when you’re all done you can come back to the hostel for some authentic homecooked Indian grub. Seriously a tasty round up to the day.

Not JUST a Jaipur backpackers hostel, this place has more on offer. There’s a cool lil’ cafe (vegan) to chill in. And there’s a boutique shop onsite too, where you can buy… various textile items. Great if you wanna get some souvenirs or something.

Staying at this place means that you’ll be able to sleep inside an old colonial villa. It’s not exactly the coolest hostel in Jaipur though, but they have tried hard to make it look pretty nice. And it does… to an extent. Close to the pink city for some Insta fun.

Doodle Rack. What an odd name. But it’s not that odd. It’s actually got something to do (we think) with the black and white doodles that are scrawled on the walls throughout this top hostel in Jaipur. They’re actually pretty cool.

Otherwise, this place has a great laid-back vibe making it a nice lil’ oasis away from the city. This Jaipur backpackers hostel goes the extra mile and offers up things like free pickups from bus/train station, discount ticket to clubs, a private female-only common area, a basement games room complete with projector… dang.

Destiny Hostels

– Games Room

This place doesn’t want to think of themselves as simply a Jaipur backpackers hostel, but are more behind big ideas like world peace, knowledge and being a global citizen – and neon paint (as often is the case) seems to be a necessity for this. Does this sound like you?

Well, if it does, you’ll probably love staying at this place. The only problem here is… cleanliness. Can’t we live in a world where people are kind AND things are clean? Or are these things mutually exclusive? Big questions. But the staff are helpful and if you’re in it for the whole experience thing, then this is a good shout for you. Oh: it’s SUPER BUDGET.

It’s the Bunkstop. Dunno why that’s made us lol but there you go. It’s pretty central and really close to big restaurants, malls, cinemas and bars. Less about being in the old town here than it is about the modern day side of India, or Jaipur specifically.

This top hostel in Jaipur provides free pickups from transport hubs, which is always helpful, and there’s a fully stocked kitchen which is also handy. Plus this place boasts not one, not two, but actually THREE separate rooftop terraces. Dang.

Jaipur Sundeck Hostel

This place does actually have a sundeck, so the name at least makes sense. It’s actually a nice place to hang out, too. Located in a Victorian bungalow, this recommended hostel in Jaipur features an owner who’ll make you feel welcome: a perfect antidote to the madness of India’s streets.

The neighbourhood is quiet and relaxing, but you can get a tuk-tuk (or a taxi) very easily to the top sights or anywhere else you’d like to go in Jaipur. Another great thing is the homecooked food that gets served up here. Seriously, and we mean seriously, tasty.
