Dream Team Campaign by Zostel Post

Dream Team members will get a myriad of benefits: monthly stipend, reimbursement on travel expenses, certified business development training, and a chance to learn from industry experts.

Delhi: Zostel, the world’s largest chain of backpacker hostels with 60 hostels & homes in India & Nepal, has launched The Dream Campaign to offer travel enthusiasts an opportunity to pursue a career in the hospitality industry. The company is scouting for candidates who can join the Dream Team, a major part of Zostel’s Dream campaign where one can help Zostel unlock unique properties in both unexplored and known tourist destinations across India, and earn lucrative benefits in the process.

These include a monthly stipend, reimbursement on travel expenses, certified business development training, and property conversion bonuses of up to INR 1 lakh for each property. Interested candidates can apply to be a Dream Team member for their region here.

To be expanded to other cities

The campaign is already live in Devbhoomi Uttarakhand. So far, Zostel has received 3000K applications and shortlisted 200 candidates for the GD round. The brand will expand this campaign to other cities soon!

Most Zostel properties operate on a lease model where Zostel takes it from the owner on a long-term lease. For members of the Dream campaign looking to take up a Zostel franchise Zostel’s team will help in the property search and selection process while also assisting with the legal requirements for licensing. This one is ideal for members who are looking to commence their entrepreneurial journey. Interested applicants can click here to apply for a leased property franchise.

Candidates can also become a part of the Zostel family of franchise partners and earn commissions based on the amount set for each type of accommodation: Zostel Hostel, Zostel Home, and Zostel Plus. For this, they need to fill out an application form and visit for updates about prospective Zostel cities. Interested members of the Dream campaign can convert their property into a Zostel franchise once their applications are approved and formalities are completed. Zostel properties have an average occupancy rate of more than 60% resulting in high-yielding profits. Partnering with Zostel will give you access to an extensive customer base whose first choice is Zostel’s property, thereby gaining the highest possible returns.

Zostel has emerged as the world’s biggest hostel chain

As one of the first-movers in the backpacker hostel space in India, Zostel’s robust business model has been providing sizable profits to its partners for nearly a decade. Dream members can also become Zostel investors and earn substantial returns. However, the returns will depend on the project. On average, Zostel properties break-even within 12 to 24 months. Given Zostel has emerged as the world’s biggest hostel chain, investing in a Zostel property is far more profitable than bank deposits. In fact, for the past eight years, the brand has consistently given substantial returns to partners.
