    Almaty backpackers is more of a home than a hostel. I ended up staying four different occasions totaling close to two weeks during my one month in Kazakhstan. Hostel staff (Kara) knew English very well and were happy to help with any issue or question I had. My friends phone was stolen at the beginning of our stay (at a bar, not the hostel), and local hostel patrons even helped with police reports, translations and all other steps that had to be taken legally. We got the phone back in the end!!!

    Great location, just a 20 min walk along the river to some of the main sites (also makes a great run in the morning!) staff are super helpful and will help you figure out what to do in Almaty, and learn a little Kazakh as well! Breakfast was good.

    I had a short stay at Almaty Backpackers during March 2020 pandemic. Kara and the staff was exceptional, making the best out of the situation. Its location was so central, walking distance to Kok Tobe and bus stops to other parts of the town. Had it been on a more ideal time, would make a visit around Almaty city so convenient. Great wifi connection, clean rooms, lovely atmosphere.

    Was there for a few nights october 2019. Had absolutely amazing time, made friends with all the staff and still keep a friendship with one of them till now. The local girl staff of 14 yrs old spoke really good english and everyone loved her. The breakfast of every morning had diversity of food. I also made a good friend with a danish guy in my room who recommended me the cheapest agent who drove me to the Canyon and the Kolsai Lakes.

    Great stay with staff that went above and beyond to help out. Amazing breakfast, kind faces, really clean facilities, great garden to chill in. Note there are only 2 bathrooms but they are lovely so it's worth a little wait!

    Fun place to stay at. Especially the party last night with the snow barbecue was great. I hope that the problems with the drains will be resolved soon.
