Best backpacker hostel I ever stayed in! Even when I felt ready to leave Kathmandu and Nepal, I was far from ready to leave the Alobar! It was super difficult to find a dorm in Kathmandu, but the Alobar was awesome! It's not much cheaper (if even at all) than staying in private rooms in hotels, but it's got the... More

The Alobar 100 214 Kesarmahal Marg, Thamel 29, Kathmandu I stayed at ALOBAR 1000 in September 2014 and then again for a few days in October. Discovering the ALOBAR 1000 hostel was one of the biggest and VERY pleasant surprises during my 5th visit to Nepal. I suppose I now belong to a category of “mature” travelers but I did... More

If you are looking or a great place to meet people over a beer or tea on the private rooftop then this is the place. There is a restaurant on site that has cheap food and supplies the drinks. Rooms are cheap (500 rupees) and clean. The only downside is I never got a cold shower. There were rumors of... More

We stayed here after hearing so much praise for the place from other travellers. It was very average for us. The food was ok, nothing special. The room was comfortable. Communal showers and toilets were on the dirty side and the shower was cold and outside...the lounge area was nice and looked relaxing. I would not stay again and I... More

I stayed at Alobar1000 at the start of my trip and will be returning when I leave Nepal. It's a fantastic hostel, sometimes the hot showers don't work but that doesn't bother me. The place is clean and the staff are helpful and friendly. The dorm beds are comfy with clean sheets and a blanket. The plug sockets in the... More

Alobar1000 is one of the best hostels I have ever been to in the world. 2 rooftop terraces, a restaurant/bar, room for almost 120 people, events each night, friendly employees + owner, and a travel agency connected to it! Alobar1000 is the place to go if you are looking for a good experience in Kathmandu, and the travel agency will... More

Clean and chill place with a great backpacker vibe. Rooftop area is quite cool, staff is helpful and friendly. On the other hand, the wifi is quite slow, and works only in the common areas. For the price they're asking for a bed in 8-bed dorm you can easily find a separate single room in Thamel.

Alobar has the best environment to meet other people. There are a lot of solo travelers and you can meet people everywhere there. The food is good and its in close proximity of the busier Thamel (3 minutes walking). Small minus: Showers are not always warm and the internet isnt always good.
