Someone I met in Vietnam recommended this place after I told her that I would be going to Nepal after leaving Vietnam. She raved about it which made me fairly confident it was going to be an enjoyable stay especially since the hostel we were both staying at in Vietnam was amazing. My goodness was I disappointed when I got...

Very nice place to stay in Kathmandu for backpackers. They will help you with all issues! It is a pretty good place to start your time in Nepal and connect with fellow backpackers. The staff is very polite and knows a lot about the surroundings. Dorms a pretty good and the roof-top place is one of the best socializing places...

Pay for what you get. Rooms are usually pretty clean. The rooftop bar and chill out area is cool, and the food is a little more expensive that what you pay for in town but it's still a good meal. Some of the showers and toilets are not so appealing but hey, it's Nepal! Overall I was happy with my...

I first stayed here in 2012, since then the hostel has changed a lot, but it has still kept the same heart. But that heart offers much more than before, including travel desk, food and improved services/facilities. Alobar has remained a crucible for travellers, whether at the beginning or the end of their journey. There are many places to make...

I did not actually stay at the hostel but I needed help getting some contact information about two travellers who had been staying there and the staff was really helpfull and friendly. Thank you. The two travellers who did stay there recommended it and I think I will stay there when I get back to Kathmandu.

Having been recommended this hostel bey a number of people we could not help but feel dissapointed by what we found. Beds were uncomfortable and mattresses and duvets badly needed changing; bathroom facilities were not adequate with no privacy and permanently cold showers which you would not expect for the price. On the plus side terrace has a great atmosphere...

The bed is fair, the food on the rooftop restaurant is fair as well. But the environment on the rooftop is perfect, place to make new friend. The toilet is too bad that the door seem like will fall down anytime, and the space is extremely small and pack with rooms.

You can see lots of pictures, books, and reviews from travellers. Nice location in Thamel. Near bars, and tourist-filled places! Just the shower room looks a little dirty. Hot shower available! Good for friends and backpackers
