Hostel in Kurdistan
The See You in Kurdistan (SYK) project aims to provide a more nuanced understanding of the Kurdish population, culture, and history by drawing direct connections between the locals and visitors/non-locals. Within the centralized linkages of capitalism, where the dynamics of center and periphery do not allow human interconnections, the multi-layered aspects of the everyday life in Kurdistan is being concealed and rendered as secondary. Even in the tourism industry, most independent travelers in Iran – more than 90% – choose the ‘classic route’, which unsurprisingly passes from the center of Iran. This accumulation of tourists, knowledge, representation, capital, jobs, and infrastructure is paid at the cost of other people’s marginalization from cultural encounters, social benefits, and economic advantages. See You in Kurdistan, hopes to facilitate socio-economic connections in the region through sustainable tourism as an instrument, and to bring Kurdistan back to domestic and international dialogue.

Hostel in Gilan
Lotka Ecolodge is located in a serene place, among the nature of the Hyrcanian Caspian Sea, which makes it a unique ecolodge to stay in Rasht, Gilan, Iran. Hyrcanian forests are the most ancient of all forests survived the ice age due to Caspian Sea’s humidity. Going to Lotka, will give you the opportunity to get acquainted with the Gilaki culture; you can experience a rowboat trip from the private pier at the back of the ecolodge, shop local handicrafts made by rural women as souvenirs, and indulge in local cuisine (mostly cooked with organic ingredients). Sarkhoski, where Lotka is located, is a very green and quite village to spend time in with a lot to discover.
Hostel in Kermanshah
Kermanshah is the capital of Kermanshah province which is the biggest city of the Iranian Kurdish region. It is developed in the 4th century AD under the patronage of Sassanian kings. Kermanshah is situated between two cold and warm regions enjoys a moderate and mountainous climate.. We chose Kermanshah for three reasons: first, it’s the biggest city in the area so that getting there is very easy. Second, all other touristic cities around Kermanshah (Sanandaj, Paveh, Ilam, Khorramabad, Palangan) are less than 2-hour drive from here. So Kermanshah can be used as a hub in Kurdish region. Third, it is very close to Parvizkhan border to Iraqi Kurdistan for tourists who go to Iraqi Kurdistan and vice versa.
Hostel in Isfahan
Howzak Boutique Hostel in Isfahan, Iran is a small and cosy house built more than 90 years ago in the historic neighborhood of Isfahan, a short distance away from the UNESCO-listed site Masjed-e Jame, the city’s magnificent Friday mosque. Before opening its doors to tourists and city visitors, Howzak House, had been privately owned by two generations of the Khanoum family: Goli Khanoum, who was the neighborhood’s girls’ teacher, and Malek Khanoum, who had lived with her five children in this house. Howzak House dates back to the late Qajar period (1796–1925) and it is clear from its simple architectural style and ornaments, that it is not an aristocratic but a working-class residence. Yet, Howzak House exudes the charm and magic of traditional Iranian architecture, meaning that this perfectly symmetric building on the inside was built on a very asymmetrical land. Most importantly, however, it has over many decades preserved the cordial spirit of a family house.
“You should come here for the atmosphere and to meet the other international backpackers and the very open minded and interesting young people who run the cultural house. The accommodation's Rooms have an international boho-style which feels just like home. If you are sensitive to light you should bring a sleeping mask etc, as the bedrooms are not very dark. Breakfast is tasty and comfy and you will get help with anything you need as well as introduction to iranian culture, rules and habits. I will definitely return to See You in Iran hostel and cultural house!”Meranhomey place run by wonderful people

“At the start of my Iran trip I stayed in the See you in Iran hostel for 2 days by myself. I enjoyed the hostel and the Kojeen cafe a lot, especially because of the people working at See You in Iran! Everyone is very friendly and I learned a lot from many discussions we had about different aspects of this unique country and its culture.”RachelBest place to start your Iran trip
“I've been to See You in Iran hostel and cultural house twice and if I happen to be in Tehran again will definitely go back to it. The place is great and the stuff even better. I've got lots of info about buses and places to visit and they helped me booking my next accommodation out of Tehran. Warmly recommended.”Eugenio_G694I've been there twice and probably will go back again
“Perfect place to start in your Iran trip. Lounge room is very comfortable and sociable with many outside locals/foreigners coming in to hang out. They host cultural events regularly. Tehran becomes much better staying here because of the hosts (particularly Amin and Mustafa), they will recommend you good places to eat and visit. They are also there to help you out with anything like a SIM card or debit card Will be coming back during my trip!”Avid TravellerTehran becomes much better because of the hosts
“See you in Iran is so much more than an accommodation. While at first overwhelmed by the amount of people working there, you soon come to realize you jumped into a community of people that not only try to make your stay at the hostel your best stay, but for everyone that comes to Iran, in or outside the hostel and Tehran. Everyone was friendly and interested and you are able to have a good laugh with the young and energetic people that work here! Lot of other travelers too and good breakfast at the Kojeen cafe.”GlobetrotterEveryone was friendly and interested
