Nice people here and a globally good stay, yet it is pretty boheme - so not extremely clean nor new. But it's Nepal, and I couldn't expect more for this price. Perfect for backpackers.

Rooms are very basic for what you pay for compared to other places in Kathmandu.

Great atmosphere and rooftop for drinks. Close to everything. Basic rooms and bathrooms but good for the price you pay. Would stay here again.

I was there during the earthquake!! The hostel didn t have a single crack...moreover it is a great place to chill, pretty good location and staff! The showers could be better though! Hope a lot of tourists still go to nepal, amazing country!

It was my first ever solo trip and after a lot of searching and reading reviews i decided to stay here. Mr. Tashi (Owner) and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The bar and restaurant at the top is an amazing place to make friends and have a drink and enjoy tasty food. I would like to thank everyone at Alobar1000 for the hospitality and making my first solo trip memorable.

Alobar1000 has a good backpacking atmosphere. The rooms are fairly clean (like a typical hostel). The restroom however can be improved on. Other than that, it is a good hostel and I will stay there again the next time I am in Kathmandu. Good value for the money too.

I have mixed feelings about this hostel. Mattreses are awfull, bathrooms are dirty, rooms are ridiculusly small and wifi DOES NOT WORK to do anyrhing but whattsapp. Anyways, they have a great rooftop bar with cheap, good and safe food.

Loved it. Makes you want to spend forever there. Hard to leave the hostel even to go sightseeing.

Definitely the place for solo travellers but badly organised. Despite booking online and arriving at the time stated, they had given my bed away. They found a bed for me in a smaller dorm but then wanted me to pay a higher rate for it. Nearly everyone I spoke to had had similar issues. You can get a lot better for the money but it really is a great place to meet people.

Really great hostel, good common areas for meeting people, very close to Thamel area but a bit away from all the noise. Staff are AMAZING

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.

BEST HOSTEL IN NEPAL. Love alobar, stayed for a week. Great people, location, vibes, yoga and food (yoga with maria everyday at 8:30). Despite the recent natural disasters I sincerely hope the hostel and the staff are safe and doing okay. prayers and thoughts are with everyone in Nepal.

Good hostel to meet people, a stone throw away from Thamel. The beds are awful, the mattress are so thin, but everything else about this hostel good, staff are friendly and they got a big communal area upstairs which is always busy so if youre one your own (like me!) its easy to make friends. And they do day tours and things which are mostly free.
