Amir Kabir Hostel
Lonely Planet review
For years the Amir Kabir has been Esfahan’s backpacker base and, for lack of competition, it still is. The managers, Ziaee brothers, might not like spending money, but they’re helpful enough with advice on timetables, booking onward tickets and some reasonably priced tours. Rooms and the dorm are basic, and cleanliness is not as consistent as it could be. Breakfast is served for an extra IR15,000.
Our independent authors have visited Amir Kabir Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Esfahan.
