Property Description

Hello and Namaste to all.

Notice: It is to inform you that most taxi drivers at the airport will erroneously inform you that the hostel is full. Please ask them them to drop you regardless. We always have space for you. Also, please don't let anyone to carry your bags for they will expect some tips.

Alobar1000 is one of the very few real youth hostels in Kathmandu. We are proud to say that we are the only one to bring real social atmosphere in town. If you are a social person, come visit us. You will leave a happy person. We have been labeled as the young travelers hub of Kathmandu by many. We are almost like a base camp for your travels in Nepal. You come and check in and meet other travelers and make plans with them to go trekking, hiking, bungy jumping, paragliding, safari trips, and also meditation. For some of you, one activity is enough and for others more the merrier. All in all, you make us your home and your pit stop points to store luggages and make more plans further on your journey. We are your home here in Kathmandu, Nepal. Search for Alobar1000 on Facebook for our updated activities. We offer one free activity everyday around 7pm on the rooftop. Eg, Nepali culture class, game night, movie night, Language class, trekking info class, and night city tour.

The history behind the name Alobar1000: The name Alobar1000 came from an epic book Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins. The main character in this enchanting story is named Alobar, who defies the concept of death, and through will, meditation, daily rituals, and love of his companion Kudra lives to be 1000 years old. Thus the name alobar1000. This book has captured the hearts and imaginations of many people around the world, including ours...May we all live full, long, and happy lives together... forever!

We are very young group of team operating the management and we are very serious about our commitment to provide a quality service. More importantly a personal relationship with a family environment feel.

I can't emphasize enough the reality of the fact that Nepal has many problemetic issues like with running water and electricity. Please bear with us. We always try our best to make your stay a comfortable one but sometimes we also fail. If you are one of those who are very picky about issues like that then I am sorry to say alobar1000 may not be the place for you.

What we focus here at alobar1000 are the following:
1. Cleanliness
2. Hot shower
3. 24 hour running water and electricity

These are basics in any hotel but we make sure you are provided with these essentials. What we also focus is the friendliness and a family environment that makes it spiritually complete. Nepal is famous for its friendly and caring nature and I must say we put that in our recipe of service.

Our other features include free individual lockers; free linens, duvets, free internet access; free library of books, including travel guides; free city maps and travelling advice; free satellite TV and movies on the rooftop.

Few things we provide for our guests are:
We have no additional charge for the blankets and locker use anymore.
Also, all the taxes are included in the room rates.
There is a refundable 500 rupees key deposit.

We offer airport pickup service.
Please send your flight details for the pick up service.
Day time pick up is 800 rupees and night time pick up is 1000 rupees for the ride (not per person).
So find others to share your ride.
Airport Drop off is also available.
We also offer taxi service within Ring Road in Kathmandu.
And hope to see you soon.

    Fabulous

    If there’s one place to be on an evening in Kathmandu it’s the rooftop of the Alobar 1000. Busy every night with trekkers, backpackers, etc... there’s no better place to make new friends and meet people with tips on trekking and fantastic travel stories. If you’re squeamish about shared bathrooms, maybe opt for one of the private rooms. My trekking partner unfortunately got spied on while taking a shower by a guard... The staff were understanding when alerted and hopefully a change is made.

    Very Good

    The building is quite run down and can be difficult to carry your bags to your room as there are so many stairs. The common areas are really great, and so is the food! But some of the rooms don't have plugs so you can't charge your phone at night- simple things like that should be fixed to make it more comfortable! And some of the toilets don't have basins so you can't wash your hands and have to walk and find a basin elsewhere. The staff are great!!!

    Very Good

    Appreciate that there was a decent crowd on roof, some watching World Cup on the big projector and some hanging out on the restaurant side. They prepared breakfast (omelet) pretty quickly. Probably not for you if you’re a neat freak but that could be said about most hostels. I would stay there again.
