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. I really thank everyone of you! I hope to see you again in my life!”
AmaiaAn incredible experience
“SEE YOU IN IRAN is more than a hostel for travellers, is a whole integral project: hostel, meeting point cafe, culture house.The time to arrive was very flexible. There is always a nice person in the reception to welcome the new arrivals (even late at night) like the amazing Ali and Amin. Do not hesitate a minute. An incredible experience for these basque and breton girls. A window open to understand Iran and meet interesting, young and engaged people living in Tehran. A place full of live!!”
BernardEveryone was friendly
“See you in Iran is so much more than a hostel. 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 travellers too and good breakfast.”
NicolaStaff are helpful and friendly
“Good, friendly base in Tehran
Arriving in Iran for the first time is a bit of an unknown for many travellers so having See You In Iran as a first stop is reassuring. Staff are helpful and friendly, the hostel is clean and tidy and prices are reasonable for Tehran. It is in a good location, close to Taleghani metro station, walkable to many of the main attractions, and a great park just down the road. We stayed in the annexe hostel (literally 3 minutes down the road) three time during our trip. Only downside was being woken up by mosquitoes - worth buying mosquito coils in warmer months.”
FrankA warm coffee after a long journey
“this hostel is like visiting friends
In a strange 15th million inhabitant city, a strange, new environment, arriving alone, ringing shyly and then being warmly welcomed, being invited for breakfast, a warm coffee after a long journey, to feel at ease, that's easy wonderful. That's exactly what happened in this hostel, making it a great, very special location, ...
Just the place to start the tour of the country, including a small cafe in the hostel, close to a subway, restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance
On arrival and departure I visited the hostel, met the people again, with the feeling of coming back to friends. Although traveling mostly 3 months a year, I rarely had such an experience. I left the hostel with a promise to come back next year. My absolute recommendation.”
LeonardAn open minded atmosphere
“Awesome time with awesome people here in See You in Iran
It’s not often that you enter a place with a cosy atmosphere and people welcoming you with so much attention, and See You In Iran is definitely one of these places where you immediately feel at home. The Staff is doing an amazing job to make you trip easier, the atmosphere is really open minded and it’s easy to get to talk to everyone here. The place is super clean and the fact that you can use freely the kitchen tends to make you feel even more at your place.
Finally the events organized there are a good way to talk to local people and to tourists.
If you’re looking for a hostel with a perfect location, an open minded atmosphere and all you could need to have a safe trip, there you are.
I’ll surely come back.
KristineThis is a perfect way to learn more about Iran
“Best location, friendliest staff
This Hostel offers everything travellers to Tehran might look for.
It is situated perfectly in a central and cool neighbourhood of Tehran, only 10 minutes walk from the Taleghani metro station and the former US Embassy. At the same time, the neighbourhood is calm, allowing for a good night's sleep. It is also in the vicinity of Cafe Tehroon, which is a really good vegetarian restaurant.
The rooms in the hostel are clean, the shared bathrooms likewise and there is also an option for private rooms.
Originating from a facebook group fighting iraniophobia, the hostel "jewel" is a downstairs cafe with an adjoining courtyard. Cosy chairs, good coffee and cool paintings set the scene for a perfect hangout spot to relax or to fall into conversation with the young, intelligent and incredibly friendly Iranian and Afghan staff working at the hostel. This is a perfect way to learn more about Iran and talk to Iranians or other travellers about Iranian culture, travel, cuisine you name it.
The hostel is very much in demand so it is advisable to book well in advance!”
“Great place, amazing people <3
Go there with an open mind, a will to speak and understand the life and expectations of people living in Iran, and you would get a great time here while taking a step far from the media cliches about Iran and Iranians. I booked 2 nights there but finally stayed for 4 nights and would go back for sure, perfect place for a first night in Tehran I would say because they will also help you very much with any troubles you could have on arrival : metro, sim card, taxi, visits, money, best food around...and many many more.
Remember that it is also a cultural center so you might be lucky enough to attend a debate/projection with really interesting people as I had on my arrival !
The place in itself is only 5 min walk from 2 metro stations (cheap and easy to use!). It is really well decorated, with a great outside for smokers, or cats lovers ^^ Everything clean and rather comfortable beds in the dormitory I had. Only, don't forget you ear plugs as people might arrived at any time of the night and well, it's an hostel so you might get some noises but hey, that's travelling right ?! 😉
Thank you all guys, see you again. All the best from France.”
