I used this place as my base whilst in Kathmandu, it was so great! Right in Thamel so easy to get out to cafes bars shops. The hostel is big and spacious, with a Great hang out area on the roof where everyone eats, writes, reads, just chills out (a lot of weed smokers here! So beware if that's really...

Everything screams cliché about what I am about to tell you about this wonderful hostel, situated in the pulsating Thamel district of 'Backpacker Capital' Kathmandu. People are welcoming and kind, among the staff, as well as other visitors. I got to a friendly state of familiarity with such a number of people in Alobar1000, that I felt like distant family,...

good location, good gathering of people from all around the world, a nice rooftop for socializing, very welcoming and supportive staffs, but a very old building, not the cleanest and a lot of mosquitoes.

This place is nothing as we expected. We were recommended through a friend. We had to be moved three times from different rooms as facilities and other things did not work. The staff were not apologetic. They wanted us to pay for the upgrade that we only had because they could not provide us the room that we ordered. We...

I arrived at Kathmandu with 30 minutes to New Year's Day kicking in.

The other was a driver. It was a tad intimidating....

My partner and I were quite excited when we arrived to alobar1000 , we read the reviews on trip advisor and it seemed that other visitors had enjoyed their time , so we thought we would give it a go. The staff were nice but not overly friendly. We booked to stay in a private room with our own bathroom....

Good happy atmosphere in the hostel and a nice rooftop bar/ social area but this was spoilt by smoking being allowed under covered areas on the rooftop which I personally didn't like. Rooms were v basic and I was concerned that they only asked for the bed sheet and pillow case back at the end of the stay (do they...

I came here as a recommendation of the guide I had arranged before coming to Nepal. I was very happy with the service. The rooftop is amazing and from what i hear better than the hostel around the corner. Good food, Good beer, and Good prices. I can't say anything about the dorm rooms as I paid for the private...

Take caution during checking out. There is a 500 rupees key deposit. I happened to forget that exist. The staff asked me to sign on a booklet, which I assume to be deposit fee register book. It was early in the morning and I wasn't in a good condition, so I just didn't realize what happened then. Only when I...
