Travelers' Choice
WanderThirst remains a wandering dream like state for lost travellers who continue to seek salvation in discovering new lands and meeting new people with a mind of their own. We shelter all souls looking for a dream to walk acorss believing that life isn’t about living along but living through it breaking shells of the mask we wear in our day to day lives. Till the end of life wherever you are, WandertThirst is a nest for all of your creations, your trials, your beginnings and your dreams to end in a full bloom of prosperity. What is true happiness?, that we will never know but when you sit down to close your eyes and breathe for a moment, everything disappears like a mirage into thin air of blank emptiness and a surge of peace hits you like an ocean wave. You feel yourself getting farther and farther away from all the noise and existence of the rumbling city, your impatience has faded and you find yourself drunk in the ecstasy of freedom. We are at your service 24/7 and aim to make your every stay with us a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Other features at WanderThirst Hostels: - Co-Working Space - Restaurant & Bar - Tattoo Studio - Game Room - Open Garden Movie Theatre - Laundry Service - High Speed Internet - Coffee Shop

Literally one the best places u can stay in Kathmandu. Anything u require for a good quality residence, u can find there. I experienced the place during lockdown because of Covid19 in 2020,but every moment of being there has a good memory for me. Amazing owner and staff who do anything possible to make u happy. If u stay there for even one night, it will always remain in your heart. If u are looking for a place to stay in Kathmandu, don't hesitate to choose Wanderthirst.

My mum and I stayed at Wanderthirst for a little over a week during a particularly rough time in Nepal (Corona-Virus). We could not have had more of a comfortable stay during this time! This was made possible thanks to the incredible employees and owners of this vibrant, spacious hostel. We were accommodated very well, and the team at Wanderthirst maintained good spirits during a global crisis - always making sure that guests were taken care of. I had some fun conversations here, and I will always have fond memories of this wonderful hideaway in Kathmandu. With almost everything we needed located on-site, and with the good attitudes of everyone around us... our stay here became a silver lining. It was a very welcomed way to end what was unfortunately a trip cut short for us. The food is good, there are gas showers, and the outdoor areas of this hostel are beautiful. We seriously could not ask for more. Thank you so much Wanderthirst family. Hope to see you again soon!

In March 2020 we stayed at Wanderthirst hostel for about 5 nights and we can strongly recommend this place. Despite the Corona-virus the Wanderthirst team made us feel "at home" and were always kind to help as we had to change plans often. We would especially like to thank two persons. Thank you Ramhari (Himalaya Hub Adventure) for arranging our incredible ABC trek and providing a handful of practical tips from the hostel (even in outside your office hours)! Thank you Sandip Bhatterai (Himalay Hub Adventures) for your guidance, company and kind personality during our trekking days in the Annapurna region! We had to stop our journey sooner than expected, so we will come back for sure!

Great place to hang out. One of the best places for coffee. Good food. Very friendly staff, especially my mates Manish and Vishu! If you look for a place to wait out the corona situation this is the place to go for.
