I traveled a lot and stayed in hostels worlwide. Many of them had bars and were fun, but not like this one. This is 100% party hostel, with bar, pre-games and take you to parties. You will def meet so many people. Free dinner was good too and location is amazing. Rooms and bathrooms are not okay; avoid staying in... More

I chose Kabul Backpackers Hostel for the central location and yes it sure was very central but it was just way too much of a party hostel for me. There were heaps of Aussies in there 20s just trying to drink as much as possible as fast as possible. Probably fun if you're in the mood for that kind of... More

This was my first time staying in a hostel. I did out from a friend's recommendation. When I first walked into the hostel's room, it reminded me of a prison cell. Small, cramped, and not even enough room to open my suitcase the whole way. What have I got myself into I thought. But that quickly changed when I started... More

Stayed back in March 2011 and loved it. Don't stay here if you want some rest though, the rooms are small & cramped and it was all a bit noisy. Thankfully we weren't there for a peaceful week so really enjoyed the fact that they were selling 2 glasses of beer for 5 euros in the bar. THey also serve... More

Kabul is in the perfect central location, but if you're driving there, I suggest doing more research than we did. We showed up on a Saturday night and you can only get somewhat close before the streets become more walkways than driveable. Park on a main street then walk the rest. If you are checking in at night, allow at... More

Great place to stay. In a great location, good to meet people before you go out, young people, good breakfast (eat when you get back from club), friendly staff, big lockers to fit your luggage in. Go there if you plan to party.

Kabul has easily been one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at, may not be the most glamorous rooms but the staff are awesome and the vibe around the place is unbelievable! Everyone wants a fun time. Location is perfect too! Met some of the best people there that I've met throughout my trip trough Europe. Solid 8.5/10

Okay. I know I messed up. I booked for the 11th and 12th without realizing that my flight would be over night and that I'd actually be getting there the second day. Totally my bad. I'm cool with the booking fee and the cancellation fee (one night's stay, which hurts when it's 40something euros and you're backpacking, but hey. My... More

Great location, next to two subways lines an 15 minutes walk from the beach. It's a party hostel, a real one, so be aware when booking and if you want to have a good night of sleep this is not the place for you. My bed had lots of bad bugs and I heard many people complaining too, check it... More
