There is not hot water in this hostel. Heaters are too bad and you will freeze when trying to have a shower. There's no place in the entire hostel, not even a tiny room for common use where you can be warm.i had to wear jacket, scarf and gloves even in the room. I have never been so cold in any accommodation in the past :) Apart from that, I guess if you go on a warmer season, it's a cool hostel.

Excellent place to meet other travellers in Kathmandu, staff were incredibly helpful and often have activities running if you want to see more of the city. Highly recommend!

Fantastic hostel. Stayed here 2 years ago and again this year. The social atmosphere and positive energy has not changed over the years. The staff is very helpful and treat you like family, so you feel comfortable. Facilities have been improved to cater to the customer and have grown over the years, very impressed.

The staff mixes up the bookings ridiculously often. I stayed there on five occasions and found someone in my bed twice. It seems they lack an efficient registering system of who is in which bed...

Not really value for money when you know what else is out there in Kathmandu. And the atmosphere wasn't my kinda deal simply cause I don't smoke mj.

the hostel is right off a main artery in downtown Thamel(tourist spot) , which is excellent! the staffs are friendly and look happy which reflects good management. Tourist note- this is a great central location to explore Thamel and its surroundings. will definitely visit again

great atmosphere and cheap price. only thing, make sure to remember to ask back for the key-deposit, i had forgotten and when i came back 3 days later to spend one more night there, there was no way to prove i had not received it back (why don't they keep a signature of who receives back the deposit??? )

It was great experience overall. Yes, not everything was on the spot but then I knew I was in Nepal and the same problems exist everywhere in Nepal. I was happy to be at Alobar and that is what matters. I highly recommend.

That was my second stay in Alobar and I still recommend it for every backpacker who's up for meeting lots of people on a super friendly rooftop tarrace. But not for people who need their clean bathroom with hot water, nice bed etc. Staff claims there was hot water, I dodnt have the privilege to use it. Im pretty sure there are bad buga... Decent wifi and good food though...
