PSBraakmanThe best welcome to start your trip in Iran

“Kojeen, is simple the best place I stayed during my trip in Iran! Very welcome people, kind to help get started whit my trip by arranging bus tickets. The accommodation itself was nice and clean. When you stay there definitely go for the Local breakfast because that one will kick start your day! :)”

npennegInspiring and Beautiful Place

“Kojeen is way more than a hostel where you will rest and plan your trip ahead, it is a wonderful world inhabited by truly generous, passionate and warm-hearted people. The mix of local and travelers, the feeling of not being perceived and treated as a tourist but rather as an acquaintance staying over made me feel home and surrounded by a familiar crowd of friends to be.”

Meret HWonderful Place

“This was the best hostel we stayed at during our trip, by far. It had really clean rooms and bathrooms, very cool and hip atmosphere, a great cafe and so many interesting people! Unfortunately, we could only stay one night since it was otherwise (understandably) fully booked. One night in the female dorm cost us €12/person. Would definitely recommend - book in advance! Or just swing by for some coffee and interesting discussions :)”

Alessi0 1985Brilliant and Warm Welcome in Tehran

“The staff of this hostel is absolutely helpful, they’re so kind and gentle. They always welcome you and make you feel really comfortable. The rooms are big with great common space as well. Showers are good. The breakfast is so tasty! Even when they meet you in the street they're happy to spend time with guests! They also taught me many things about Iran's traditions, how to move around many many information and help. I really thank everyone of you! I hope to see you again in my life!”
