Review of Gileboom
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Oct 2017
Gileboom offers all you could want for a great stay. Comfortable rooms, excellent information on walks and excursions around the surrounding area, delicious home cooked meals and all in a relaxed home atmosphere. The communal area is the meeting point for foreign and Iranian guests to share experiences together.
Best of all, the owners (Mahin and Khosro) live their lives by the principles of sustainable living. They support local community enterprises and are committed to creating a clean and healthy environment in their village and surrounding area.

A lovely place with very friendly and warm and welcoming hosts (Mahin & Khosro) at a fantastic location. The rooms were clean and comfortable for us (my wife and a 16 month years old daughter). The foods were amazing and healthy and they set us up for a day of exploring beautiful Javaher Dasht.
It is definitely worth it! I wish we could have stayed longer, Thank you for the great time!!

Room tip: Room on the second floor is large with A/C unit, bathroom and suitable for up to 10 people and good view of jungle.

My partner and I stayed here whilst sending 5 weeks travelling around beautiful Iran. It was a highlight of our time here.

Even by Iranian standards, the hospitality here is incredible. The team's delightful Gilani cuisine, excellent information on nearby walks + activities and a gorgeous setting between the Caspian Sea + Alborz Mountains means Gileboom really should not be missed.

Additionally, their environmental and sustainable tourism initiatives should be applauded. Fun activities based around this can be organised for those with children too.

The Gileboom hostel is a very warm, welcoming and relaxed place to stay! The nature around the house is amazing! The whole surrounding is very green and on one side there are impressive mountains. Mahin took me to the mountains and we had a wonderful hike up there.
We also visited rice fields and the beach, they're on walking distance from the house.

What makes me really happy is that they work very eco friendly. Mahin also cooked us some amazing and healthy food!

This place is a few hours traveling from Tehran, but it is definitely worth it! I wish we could have stayed longer,

Thank you for the great time!!

We really enjoyed our stay at Gileboom. The hosts are warm and welcoming, and we found the house nice and clean. Mahin and Khosro helped us to organise tours, all very reasonably prized. Khosro joined us on our trip to a tea factory and a traditional hand weavers studio, making it a memorable and educational experience. Not only is a stay at Gileboom absolutely worthwhile, it will also help Mahin and Khosro in their efforts to support the local community in upholding their traditional way of life. The food made by Mahin was very delicious. We had great opportunity to taste delicacies of Gilan every day during our stay. Must be tried :) We really hope we can visit Gileboom again!

After travelling iran for already 3 weeks, it was just great to see some green again.
And the house which Mahin and Chosro provide makes it even more comfortable.
Nice setting, the sea is not far away, altough the mountains are more interesting (should be super nice to stay there in autumn when everything is colourful).
You can find some rice fields close to the house, some kiwi and orange tress with a friendly old man ... Chosro takes you around in the mountains (probably a 2 or 3 day tour is the best choice), food is always great and if you are lucky enough, some family members are around aswell. So just sit down, have a good conversation and maybe you are more lucky than me and can prove your skills in how to chew the sunflower seeds. Whish you good luck :D
