Seven Hostel in Tehran is the first of its name and the first genuine hostel in Iran. SevenHostels Group started a few years ago with the goal of providing cheap and modern accommodation in Tehran and other major cities in the country. Prior to the establishment of the group’s first branch in Tehran, there weren’t any places that could be aptly called youth hostels. Most of these places that called themselves hostels, were in fact some cheap options among Iran’s hotels. Even the so-called Tehran hostels were in fact Tehran hotels with below-average services and amenities! Many people traveling to Tehran used to stay in these hotels and guesthouses with the hope of lodging in a hostel.

It has been more than a century since the establishment of the first hostel in the world (a youth hostel in Altena Castle in Germany). But still many people’s first reaction upon hearing the name hostel, is asking the question: What is a hostel? The reason is that so many, widely different, accommodation facilities gather under the name “hostel” that nobody seems to have a clear idea. Hostels range from incredible lodges with location and facilities far better than cheap hotels to derelict dorm-style places with serious sanitary issues! It is a pity that most people’s understanding of hostels is closer to the latter description. But 7 Hostel in Tehran is a glorious instant of the former, that is a flawless package of everything essential for an economy accommodation.

Seven Hostel Amenities and Services

Quality of the Rooms

Seven Hostel is among the very few hostels in Iran that has private bathrooms and showers in all rooms and even in dorms. Room service is as efficient and all-encompassing as any hotel in Tehran and the hostel is impeccably clean. Free Wi-Fi and breakfast are included on the cost of the rooms which are incredibly low considering the superb amenities of the hostel. All the rooms have been newly-refurbished and equipped with modern facilities such as air-conditioners and LCD TVs. In most hostels, dorm rooms are small rooms packed with as many bunk beds as possible. This is not the case with the dorms in Seven Hostel. What we call dorms in Seven Hostel are beautiful rooms with private bathrooms and showers and no more than four beds inside.

Booking; Easy and Cheap

The quality of amenities and service in Seven Hostel is higher than most of the cheap hotels in Tehran. And the incredible thing is that Seven Hostel charges you much less than Tehran’s budget hotels and other economy options in Iran. Like most modern lodging options in Tehran, Seven Hostel provides online booking services. Seven Hostel in Tehran has been the first of five Seven Hostels in Iran. In addition to Seven Hostel in Tehran, the group has now branches in Isfahan, Shiraz, Dizin and Alamut.


Seven Hostel in Shiraz

Seven Hostel in Shiraz is the second branch of the hostel chain in Iran. Established in Shiraz, the city of wine and poetry, Seven Hostel is by far the best lodge you can opt for among Shiraz hostels. It is top-notch accommodation in every possible sense of the word. First of all, it is the location. It will take you just five minutes to reach the bedazzling Shah Cheragh, the most significant religious landmark in the city. Other magnificent tourist attractions of Shiraz aren’t very far either. In fact, for a one-day sightseeing tour of Shiraz from the site of Seven Hostel in Shiraz you won’t need any transport but your feet!

Seven Hostel in Isfahan

It is only natural that Isfahan, the most visited city in Iran by foreign tourists, should claim at least one of the Seven Hostel branches. Seven Hostel in Isfahan lies in Charbagh Street, the trendiest and most important district in Isfahan. This gives Seven Hostel an edge over other hostels in Isfahan. Being located in Charbagh means that most of the historic landmarks of the city are within walking distance of the hostel. These include the legendry Naqsh-e Jahan Square (the largest historic plaza in the world) with its rare collection of historic wonders: Shah Mosque, Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque and Ali Qapu Palace. As with all Seven Hostels, guests have the luxury of choosing between private rooms and dorms all of which include high-speed WI-FI and a delicious buffet breakfast. One important fact to consider about Isfahan hostels is that they are usually fully-booked during the high season. Thus, booking in advance is a necessity in hostels in Isfahan and other major tourist destinations such as hostels in Kashan and Yazd.

Seven Hostel in Dizin

Seven Hostel in Dizin is a beautiful villa located in Velayat Rud Village on Chalous road. It offers a cozy and serene atmosphere in the scenic countryside of Dizin.

The hostel is about 4 km away from the resort but that shouldn’t trouble you, since Seven Hostel offers free shuttle service to Dizin Ski Resort in the mornings. Your transport will pick you up at the end of the day from the resort and bring you back to the hostel. Seven Hostel in Dizin is an ideal accommodation for economy-minded travelers. It is clean, comfortable, well-equipped and affordable in comparison with the expensive costs of Dizin hotels.

Seven Hostel in Alamut

Alamut boasts great historic and natural significance. The magnificent valley of Alamut, the Castle of Assassins and mighty snow-capped peaks are some of the wonders of Alamut. Prior to the establishment of Seven Hostel in Zarabad village (the ancestral home of Jalal Rashedi, the founder of SevenHostels) in Alamut there weren’t any quality accommodation in the region. The place is the first of Alamut hostels and it isn’t an ordinary abode. Seven Hostel in Alamut garners highest of praises from its guests who cherish the genuine and heartfelt hospitality of the lovely couple who run the hostel. This traditional hostel, at the bosom of the bounteous nature of Alamut, is the definition of authenticity and coziness. The building has a beautifully-rendered local design and adorable traditional embellishments. Its spacious hangout area is the favorite of the guests and the cuisine is a class of its own!

Tehran Sightseeing Tours

The places that you will visit in the course of Tehran one-day tours are the most popular tourist attractions in the capital. The historic sites in the city center are the most visited landmarks of Tehran. You will visit the glorious Golestan Palace, The National Museum of Iran and Tehran’s famous old bazaar. Public parks are another feature of Tehran Sightseeing tours. Mellat Park, Ab-o-Atash Park and Iranian Garden are some instances of these great public spaces each known for a unique set of features. As unlikely as it seems, Tehran is also famous for its glorious natural attractions. Darband and Darakeh are two spectacular districts far north of Tehran at the foot of Alborz mountains. Natural springs, rivers, immaculate fresh weather and hundreds of trendy restaurants and tea houses make Darband and Darakeh the favorite hangouts for the massive population of Tehran. Tehran sightseeing tours also take you to the historic sites in the north of the city including Imamzadeh Saleh Mosque and Tajrish Bazaar.

Iran Food Tours

Iran food tours have been the latest development in Iran tour packages. What you will experience in the course of these Persian food tours is Iranian cuisine at its full length.

Iran Travel Information

There are many misconceptions about the Middle-East and especially about Iran in the West. These are the result of false images inculcated in the people’s mind by the media. People visiting Iran always express their utter amazement at the discrepancies between their old conception of Iranian people and traditions, and their own first-hand experience. Before visiting Iran some people still think that Iran is a country with a desert climate where women are subjugated by ruthless patriarchs!


The other fallacy regards Iran travel information. Many of Iran facts such as obtaining Iranian visa and the hot issue of security, get needlessly political. According to the latest statistics, Iran is one of the safest countries in the world for tourists and getting an Iranian tourist visa is incredibly simple! In what comes next, we will tell you about a couple of things you must know about Iran:


Iran Visa

Iran visa on arrival is available for the nationals of all countries except for Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Canada, Colombia, India, Iraq, Jordan, Nepal, Pakistan, Somalia, Sri Lanka, the United Kingdom and the United States. The nationals of the countries mentioned above need to apply for Iran’s visa in advance. Iran has no political ties with the state of Israel, so nationals of Israel cannot travel to Iran.


Imam Khomeini Airport Taxi

Your first destination in Iran is most probably Imam Khomeini Airport in Tehran. Since the airport is outside the domain of the city, you will need a ride to Tehran. Fortunately, Imam Khomeini Airport taxi services with English-speaking drivers are offered at IKIA 24-hour and they will take you to any clear address. You can even book a ride in advance by referring to websites such a that of IranTTS.


Iran Weather

Although one-fourth of its total area is covered with deserts, Iran's weather is known to be like that of a four-season country. How is that possible you might ask. Well that is because Iran boasts a wonderful geographical diversity. While deserts rule in the central regions, the northern provinces off the coast of the Caspian Sea are dominated by regular showers. The northwest is the realm of snow and strong winds and in the south near the golden shore of the Persian Gulf, it is always summer!

Language in Iran

Although Persian is the official language in Iran, millions of Iranians speak their mother tongues which aren’t necessarily Persian. Azeri is spoken in the northwest while in the west Kurdish and Luri are the main local languages. People of the north speak Talysh, Gilaki and Mazanderani while in the southern province of Khuzestan, locals speak Arabic. And this is still not an exhaustive list, as many other languages and local dialects are spoken in towns and villages all around Iran.


Iranian Women

Iranian women are active in all social levels in Iran. Wearing a headscarf doesn’t mean that Iranian women aren’t fashionable or that the only imaginable career for them is being a housewife. In fact, you will be surprised to know that the number of female university graduates per year exceeds the number of male graduates.

Tehran Tourist Attractions

Iran’s tourist attractions are a combination of natural wonders and historic sites, some of which date back to the dawn of civilization. Tehran, the capital city of Iran, boasts numerous historic and natural landmarks. Most of Tehran’s tourist attractions are in the form of museums, royal palaces, historic mansions, public parks and stunning nature attractions. Of the first category, namely museums, we can mention National Museum of Iran, Carpet Museum of Iran, National Jewelry Museum (home to Iranian Crown Jewels that includes some of the most precious diamonds in the world) and the sensational Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art (that holds the largest collection of modern art outside Europe and the USA). Then comes the world-famous royal palaces of Tehran, Golestan Palace, Niavaran Complex and Sa'dabad Complex. Tehran bazaar that lies across from Golestan Palace, is the hub of commerce in the capital. It is far beyond a business center however, as it includes various historic sites in its massive area. Of Tehran’s extraordinary parks and nature attractions, one can name the famous Laleh Park, Ab-o-Atash Park, Mellat Park and the wonderful Persian gardens all around the city. We should also add the scenic mountainous districts of the north of Tehran, Darband and Darakeh, places of refuge from the bustle of the metropolis.

Tehran City

Tehran isn’t only the political capital of Iran but also its largest and most populated city. That might sound alarming for the people who want to go on sightseeing tours of Tehran. But let us assure you that except for the rush hours (which is almost the same in all mega cities), getting around in Tehran is both trouble-free and fun. All you need is to download the English version of Tehran metro map and Tehran BRT map online. By just taking a brief look at these maps you will have a general knowledge of the stations and the quickest routes to get there. Tehran has the best public transport among the cities in Iran. In addition to BRT speed buses and metro, there are countless bus and taxi services. If you could manage the application on your mobile phone, there are also cheap and excellent online taxi services that will take you to your chosen address in a jiffy. For using all these transports, you will need to have Iranian currency, rial. Contrary to what it seems, money exchange is fairly straightforward in Iran. All you need is to find an official exchange place. There are dozens of them in Ferdowsi Sq. in Tehran. Just remember that the official currency in Iran is Iranian rial not toman. If someone asked you for tomans, just drop a zero from the amount in rial and you will have the sum in tomans. It is as simple as that!

SevenHostels Group

For years the lack of quality economy hostels was a common complaint among the tourists visiting Iran. A huge change came along in 2015 when SevenHostels Group established its first branch of youth hostels in Tehran. Jalal Rashedi, the founder and general manager of SevenHostels, was the driving spirit behind the ambitious project. In the three years since the start of the first Seven Hostel, the group has thrived in a surreal pace and now has four other branches in Isfahan, Shiraz, Dizin and Alamut. In addition to groundbreaking enterprises in tourism, the group has many other parallel projects. Mr. Rashedi whose indisputable efforts as a major entrepreneur in the area of Iranian tourism has led to a sea change in Iran’s hospitality sector, has started a new grand project with the goal of promoting the export of Iranian goods. The group hopes that this could further the course of Iranian industry and also present the world with the unique quality of Iranian products such as its legendry hand-woven carpets and magical saffron.
