Seven Hostel Dizin
Seven Hostel is part of a group of different hostels in Iran. The group has two different hostels in and around the capital Tehran but the one we would like to highlight is their little known Dizin establishment, perfect for this time of year when the weather is just right for the perfect covering of snow.
Despite the dingy decor, the hostel has a five star rating by previous customers and is probably a better bang for your buck than the ageing hotels at the foot of the Dizin slope.
Dizin Velayatverd Village where the hostel is based towards the bottom of the camp is a great place to stay for a night or two during the winter months and is a great example of having a great cheap couple of nights outside the metropolitan Tehran area. Dorms cost €15 euros, while private double rooms cost an affordable €45.
