Great hostel, good atmosphere in the common area at the rooftop. showers aren't good though but I think it's a problem of Nepal rather than the hostel.
lots of small problems with the hostel, but no doorknob on the bathroom?!?! what?!!?
Great hostel close enough to Thamel to walk but far enough away to avoid the chaos! Very nice staff, handy roof-top restaurant, and the place is kept pretty clean. The 12-dorm is cramped however and as a result the lockers are outside the dorm. It would be better having them in the dorm and taking out a bunkbed or two! The in-house Dal Bhat Power agency has very reasonably priced tours. I did the ABC Trek through them with Nirmal and was very happy with the experience.
Allobar100 has a great vibe and is a great place to meet people. Unfortunately the facilities are very much lacking during the fuel crisis. If you don't smoke weed, you might find yourself feeling marginalized. Some of the most interesting people I've ever met were here though!
In the middle of the winter they didn't had hot shower and haven't warned us before or after the booking

Great staff and good place to just chill out. The beds and showers are nothing special but considering the price definitely no complaints! Would stay here again.
We stayed here for 5 nights and were very happy! The atmosphere is great, but the bathrooms could have been looked after more often. Usually out of toilet paper and clogged sink. Other than that mostly positive! Would recommend highly if you're travelling on a budget, want to meet people and is not to pricky about the facilities.
Great hostel, no hot water due to a national lack of gas (very understandable) - otherwise a great place!
Go to alobar for the a atmosphere not the faculties. Location is good, hit up hot bread bakery. Bathroom was very unclean. Rooftop is great!
Hostel is in a good location and overall is okay, you get what you pay for. The bathrooms were the major downside of the place, you could barely sit down on the toilet with the door shut! The cleanliness was an issue for me, and they very frequently ran out of toilet paper. Many lockers were broken and wouldn't open/shut properly. Staff was rather unhelpful when you asked questions about things to do in the area, restaurants etc.
best hostel in Kathmandu. amazing restaurant and bar. good shopping near by. sometimes hot water is but a pipe dream but hey, welcome to Nepal.
Big hostel with friendly staff, a large rooftop, and a great environment. I would definitely stay there again.
Awesome staff! Friendly, always smiling and willing to assist. Ideal place to meet people from all over the world and good location to feed your eating and shopping needs. The downsides are weak water pressure and internet connection. Additionally, the shower and toilet stalls are very tiny but besides that I suggest this hostel to anyone looking for a place to stay. P.S. You must taste Tibetan breakfast it's really good, at least to me it is.
Good place to meet other backpackers and get a group together for trekking. Perfectly decent dorms - nothing special. Staff were nice especially considering the amount of stress they were likely under due to the petrol crisis. Nice rooftop bar area to hangout and have a beer. Far enough away from center if Thamel to be quiet at night.
Very simple but awesome! The staff are amazing! Best tours ever! Atmosphere was great!!!! Although poor wifi and very bad bathrooms, I'd stay again!
Had a great stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We had booked this place because of the roof top bar, and we were not disappointed at all!! Best place to socialize and meet new people :) The only sour point for me - very crappy Wi-Fi. Maybe charge 30-40 bucks etc... per night, but please try to provide better Wi-Fi
Perfect place for travelers. Awesome roof top bar with great food and lovely chill out area. Great location, and very friendly helpful staff. Would recommend any one to stay there, for the price your paying its very very good! Your Always meeting new people every day. Top place!

Great vibe here! Good place to meet fellow travellers. Staff are incredibly friendly and the food is well priced. The rooms are good for the price. The only slight downside is sometimes it's a bit noisy - but I always expect this in hostels so it wasn't a problem at all. My wifi didn't work when I was lying in bed but meh, you're not here to use the internet and it worked in other strategic parts of the dorm room anyway.
I got the airport pickup so I didn't get scammed and then... got scammed which I was pretty annoyed at, the guy from Alobar made no attempt to help.other than that the hostel was great, off the main road and quiet but still so close to everything great social areas and the staff were friendly
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.
