Clean hostel. Good place to meet cool people in the heart of Thamel. Hot showers. What more can you want?

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...

If you looking for atmospheric place, definitly the best place to be.Amazing roof top with no so cheap food.Staff was nice, specialy Om, but little bit disorganised...One of the most expensive place to stay, probably because is only one real hostel in Thamel.Location perfect and they need to upgrade facilities!Non so comfy beds, small lockers and packed dorms.One bathroom sharing so many people.

The Good: Staff very helpfull 24/7. Common areas amazing for meeting people. Great atmosphere. Restaurant with good food. The bad: Bathrooms and showers could be better. Showering with hot water was playing roulette. Still totally worth it. Would stay here every time. Diego, Chile.

The good--- bed were clean and comphy enought. Bar and rooftop area were great places to meet people and chill out, with good wifi. Night staff were awesome and super helpful :) thanks! The bad-- only one shower seemed to consistently have hot water. Also doors of rooms were rarely locked and it's a big hostel meaning lots of people in and out in and out.. Little disappointed in the day time staff as I found them sometimes rude and to seem always too busy so you were often told to "come back"

Hostel is clean, has a nice hot shower facilities (the water pressure could be better). The stuff is nice and speaks English very well. There is the spiritual atmosphere of people doing yoga and smoking ganja what I'm not a big fan of but can live with that 😉😉😉

I stayed here during Diwali festival and as signs around the hostel explained they were a little short on staff meaning the toilets were perhaps a little less clean than usual. Amazing rooftop bar/ restaurant and a great place to meet people. The only place to lock things in my dorm were some chest of drawers filled with other peoples clothes however!

Great social atmosphere.. Nice area to relax.. Good quiet location in tourist area.. Hostel is extremely unorganized, double booking beds and constantly having to move people around..

This is a fantastic place to stay - friendly staff, loads of backpackers to make friends with and an awesome rooftop area to hang out in

Awesome time!Great atmosphere, so easy to meet people, everyone is friendly. So much fun, the rooftop is a great social spot, always something going on. I loved this place. Dance clubs only a short walk away, great little restaurants and supermarkets close by. Also the Palace Museum and Botanical Gardens next door. A real backpacker spot.

The staff is very friendly and the restaurant/bar at the top floor is a great place to relax, meet new people and have a drink at night!! Bathrooms are ok, but the wifi and the plugs aren't the best. Good enough to get some wifi every now and then and charge your camera a bit though..
