    Booked for a day and stayed much longer. The hostel is in a quiet residential neighborhood, easily connected to downtown by bus and close to an amazing grocery store. The staff are wonderful (shoutout to Ika!) and really helpful, and they really add to the friendly vibe of the hostel. The kitchen is clean and well equipped and the backyard is perfect. I loved my stay here and really recommend it!

    Absolutely amazing hostel! I’ve never stayed at a hostel with friendlier workers. The workers took us out to the bars for drinks and we all had an amazing time. I want to come back to Almaty just to hang out with them. They were also very helpful with ordering me taxis and answering any questions I had!

    Almaty Backpackers is the perfect kind of casual hostel, not trying super hard to look fancy with a special theme or anything like that; it just embraces exactly what it is: a meeting place for travellers. This causal atmosphere gives the perfect condition for those rich conversation going on long into the evening and night, with people from different corners of the world. The type of conversation that makes travelling what it is. Certainly enjoyed my time here, will come again.

    Super nice hostel, really enjoyed my stay here. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Location isn't central, but I liked it, a quiet neighbourhood and the garden is so nice (also the cute rabbits and cats). I'd definitely stay here again if I'd go back to Almaty!

    Not the most central location but plenty of bus routes nearby, a very relaxed hostel with a nice garden and terrace. One of the best breakfasts I've had in Central Asia! And staff are very friendly too.

    Almaty Backpackers Hostel is just amazing! I didn’t regret coming here all the way from the airport - the hostel is a little far if you go by bus but is totally worth it. It’s very clean and cozy, they cook great food, and the atmosphere is super warm - all that is thanks to the hostel administrator, Elena. She’s the heart and soul of this place. I never felt so welcome even back at home! A huge thanks to Elena, her husband Karat and all the hostel guests for the heart-warming time together!

    Very nice and cosy place to stay. Staff is extremely friendly, breakfast and dinner are good. They really make you feel like you're at home. Place is clean overall, location is a bit out of the city centre but close to a shopping mall and bus stop.
