Very nice hotel. I stayed in the common dorm and beds are super comfy, shared bathroom smells like some chemical product but it's fine. Staff is super welcoming and they really make you fell home. Breakfast is very good and food in general in the restaurant is good too, you can find cheaper places outside but if you feel too lazy to go out it is a good price. Very close to Thamel but far enough too not hear the noisy streets of Kathmandu. Definitely recommend this place :)


Really enjoyed staying at the shangri la hostel, owner and staff are really helpfull. Always looking for solutions no matter what question you come up with. i would suggest they install a doorbell or an personal alarm for the reception desk for when you arrive at night, sometimes it took a while for the reception to wake up and guest would start banging on door or shout and waking up not just the reception.... anyway a very good place for staying and I would certainly recommend it!

Owner was awesome and welcoming. Was very comfortable and excellent location. Great value for the money. Loved the airport pickup after a long flight.


This hotel was really good. We booked a dorm room but it only ended up being me and my friend in the room which was great. The beds were incredibly comfy and the staff were very helpful. The breakfast was also good considering it was complimentary! The only thing was the bathrooms were a bit smelly at times but other than that we had a good experience. And it is a good location to walk around and find everything you need.


I like hostel's lobby and roof-deck, it's warm and cozy. A comment would be that the hostel's official pictures doesn't reflect the actual lobby and room. There's WiFi in the hostel, which is a definite plus. And the location is pretty nice too, near the souvenir shops, money changes, and restaurants.

I strongly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a hotel with friendly and welcoming atmosphere! Especially, the owner of the hotel is the greatest guy I've ever met. Thanks for the great moment and I will see you again in near future!
