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 splendid 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.

More on Dizin

Dizin is one of the oldest ski resorts near the Iranian capital located in the Alborz mountains. With at least two established hotels and several private lodges, this is an ideal location for a day’s skiing near the capital.

It takes on average two hours (even longer when the snow is heavy) to reach Dizin via the old Chalus road and has everything to offer those who love winter sports. About 70km from Tehran it is one of the best day or weekend resorts for people looking to escape the megacity.

Dizin has four gondolas, three chairlifts and 9 surface lifts. The snow quality in Dizin has been recorded as great powder and rivals many European and North American resorts.
