See You in Iran


See You in Iran (SYI) is the foremost platform for future and former travelers to Iran to connect with locals through experience and information sharing. As featured in France 24, The Guardian, Huffington Post, Iran (Newspaper), and De Correspondent, See You in Iran originally sought to counter Iranophobia through presenting people’s unfiltered narratives about traveling to Iran.

Since its foundation as a Facebook group in August 2015, See You in Iran has exponentially grown into a community of almost 100k people stretching to multiple social media platforms. And in December of 2016 See You in Iran excitedly gave birth to Kojeen: See You in Iran Café-Hostel, an Iran-centered and globally-oriented cultural house that serves foreign travelers in the artistic center of Tehran.


Kojeen: SYI Café-Hostel

Kojeen: See You in Iran Café-Hostel (formerly, SYI Hostel and Cultural House) is a cultural house of modern hybridity with an indoor kitchen-bar, a co-working space, a window gallery, an exhibition wall and an outdoor garden serving creative, vegetarian-friendly, seasonal dishes to local and international guests. It is also an inexpensive lodging space run by a multilingual staff. It consists of five bedrooms with twelve single-person beds, and three queen-sized beds.

It also includes public bathrooms on each floor, two balconies and a living room for guests. Amenities include free high speed Wi-Fi, 24/7 on site staff, a washing machine, daily housekeeping and a storage space. We also provide linens, towels and lockers. We do not, however, provide airport pick-up services at this point in time.

Kojeen is in the Iranshahr neighborhood at the heart of Tehran’s pulsing artistic center. The hostel’s area includes the Iranian Artists’ Forum, the Museum of Contemporary Art and numerous private art galleries. It neighbors political and intellectual attractions like the Former U.S. Embassy, the University of Tehran, and Enghelab Square’s famous book bazaars. Located in the center of Tehran, Kojeen is also 30 minutes away from most major historical sites, such as Golestan Palace, the Grand Bazaar, the National Museum of Iran, etc. Refer to our “Contact Us” page for our address and transportation information.
