The 12 person room is a terrible selection, it shares a wall and windows with the lobby which gets foot traffic all night long. Definitely push for the smaller rooms. If possible, spend the extra dollar and ask if a 3 bed room is available.


Everything is incredibly awesome except the beds. The food, in particular, is quite tasty and inexpensive. Would not heaitate to stay here.

Very helpful staff and has all the basics you may need covers internet security hot water etc. Just a little bit noisy but earplugs are helpful all around Asia anyway!


Nice layout (great upstairs common area), great vibe, and terrific staff make Alobar a memorable hostel experience. Can't miss.


Great hostel, good location and the rooftop bar is great for meeting people and chilling out.


Alobar is a fabulous place to stay! They are great with last minute bookings, the social atmosphere is superb. People come to Alobar from other hostels just to hang out and meet people. Everyone is welcoming and happy. Beautiful place, beautiful people, beautiful day!


The staff were quite unorganized but they were fun. They organized some trips around ktm every day:)

Great staff, great place. Keep up the good work!


Most amazing place to stay in Kathmandu. The staff are incredibly friendly people. The atmosphere and social aspect of the place are incredible. Very easy to meet everyone on the rooftop area. if going to Kathmandu, even for one night, you have to stay at this place.


The good: warm duvets, hot showers, nice bar, friendly staff, really sociable, excellent location. The not so good: bathrooms not very private. Rooftop toilets are a bit like sheds. They run some free tours but they're not always the best orgaised.


By far the best hostel in Kathmandu, don't even hesitate to stay here. I ended up staying a total of 10 nights here and was so sad to leave. It's got the best atmosphere, the best staff, good tours available & good food. Thank you Alobar!!!!

Great place to stay. Would stay here again!


I stayed in a dorm and woke up around 5AM because of noise in the lobby (the room was right next to the lobby). Employees sleep there and they made A LOT of noise with guests leaving early in the morning. The place was clean and everything else was decent, but lack of sleep because of noise pretty much ruined the rest of the day.


Amazing. My favorite hostel!


Good stay here, the rooftop bar / chillout area really makes the place. They make a fire in the evenings, the music is largely decent and there is a sociable atmosphere. Local food they do in the bar is all really nice and well priced, although i would definitely avoid the western-style breakfasts, not good. The bathrooms could be a little better, particularly made a bit more private, but they are cleaned regularly. Rooms were fine and beds were comfy enough.


The best atmosphere hostel in town. No doubts.


Great roof top bar and amanzing people! Really recomend it, perfekt place to stay in Kathmandu!!!!


Everything was really great, sheets could have been a little cleaner but they were not that bad. The only real complaint I had was the staff at reception were playing music and talking loudly at six thirty in the am. and they were right outside the window of our room, and the window did not really close all the way. We were in the cheapest room but it seemed a bit unprofessional. Overall the stay was great. Lovely social atmosphere on the rooftop cafe. Would stay again, great location!


Staff members were very professional, friendly, and helpful. Rooms don't look as nice as the pictures. Wasn't a fan of the bathrooms.


Pros: Sociable, good communal areas, helpful travel desk Cons: Loud music from bar made it difficult to sleep, bathroom facilities were poor with no hot water
