Run by a great group of people, they run a surprisingly clean and quiet hostel. Roof top restaurant food is great and cheap. They are located in a quiet part of Thamel and yet close to all the tourist attractions, restaurants and bus stops. And the best part is that it is a great place to meet people. I made... More

I need to preface by saying I stayed in a single room with a private bathroom rather than bunking up, so if that's your intention, my review may not be so helpful. Such as it was, I couldn't have had a better experience. The staff really is fantastic, and the steamed chicken momos kept me fat and happy throughout my... More

Go here if you are a backpacker and want to meet people! i went here knowing only that i wanted to go trekking and nothing more and got so much help from other backpackers listening to what they'd experienced. I even found a trekking partner (we are now close friends!). It's obviously not a luxury place, the dorm rooms are... More

Great atmosphere, lots of travellers here. Set over a number of floors, there are rooms to suit everyone. The real reason you stay here is for the rooftop bar, great vibes there and many great times to be had

I liked this place. You can meet a lot of people. The place is nice. If you are on budget, you can rent dorm. Lobby is nice. Staffs are helpful. Also, you can enjoy the roof top bar and environment at the evening. Its a nice place in the town.

Amazing place with so many nice people. The rooftop restaurant is nice. They specially ordered a pizza at 1.30 am as I arrived late. Have so many activities to do for the backpackers. They have a tour operator which can help arrange treks or tours across Nepal. Overall a nice experience.

Absolutely loved my time at Alobar. Chilling out with friends that you make in an instant, chilling, partying, doesnt matter, always something happening. People from every little corner of the world. Perfect location in Thamel, with my favourite breakfast place just 2 mins walk from there. I am so going back here!

If you want a loud hipster invasion hostel than Alobar is your scene. Rooms and communal bathrooms were surprisingly clean. Restaurant on terrace is very cheap and quite tasty. However, there is no curfew and often times the large staff would make more noise than the guest. Additionally, the guest were also loud. Construction surrounds the hostel. I recommend the... More

This place has all the ingredients of a perfect backpackers haunt, and it works. I've travelled the whole of the subcontinent in 6 months and apart from Stops Hostel in Varanasi, this place is the most backpacker friendly place I put down my bag. Well located in the heart of Thamel it's set over 3/4 storeys with a great chill... More
