There are two locations with the main one is the traditional one. The other one is just an ordinary house with a few dorms there. Kitchen and bathroom. I was in the later one and it is okay for me. However, you need to go to the main building for any services including booking and breakfast. Pros: - free wifi...

First night we stayed at the dorm, 6 people in small room with no oxygene. Nice location, but very basic. Next day we moved to headquarter for private room, which was ok. Nice bed, good shower. Centraal square is cosy, simpel breakfast, but nice atmosphere.

I usually don't write reviews here but this was such a terrible experience: I had booked a private single room. The main building looks all nice but after check in they took me to the "second building" which was loud, dirty and in no way "traditional". My "room" was in a tiny basement, the floor was incredibly dirty, the mattress...

I had a CONFIRMED reservation for three nights in a double room with private bathroom. Upon arrival I was informed however that the hostel was fully booked during my first two nights and that they could only give me a room in an annex. This annex turned out to be much further down in the alley, a non-descript small house....

I loved my stay in Golshan, Parviz and the staff were so amicable and so helpful. This made my stay truly memorable!! The location is centrally located and easy access to vakil bazaar, nasir-ol molk and many places. Strongly recommend to stay in Golshan!

I loved my stay at Golshan. The place itself is beautiful, cozy and perfectly located but what makes it so special is the people who run it. It was my favourite place I stayed in Iran, and also the cheapest place I stayed.

Nice traditional hotel in a very good location to explore Shiraz - all main sites at walking distance. The hotel has a charming internal court with little garden where you can enjoy breakfast, some simple food and a tea, nice rest compared to city traffic. Room was nice although maybe needs some renovation.

This hostel is located in the old city center, less than 5 min away from the basar. It is considerably cheaply priced and nice staff and nice host. The rooms have the necessary comfort, private restrooms, western toilets, the only things missing would be sufficient water pressure, a thought through shower system and not stone like mattresses. Overall it's highly...

The actual hotel looks quite nice, unfortunately the dorm is in a second building a few hundred metres away down some sketchy alleys filled with people smoking ice (meth) at night. The second building is pretty grimy has the atmosphere of a crack den. Staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. When we tried to book a taxi with an Iranian friend...

“Take the rooms which are upstairs, they're nicer (and bigger) because they have a window - the ones on the ground floor do not have any.”
