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. View House Rules

    The best hostel in Nepal. Such a great place to meet new people and find people to travel with! The rooftop bar/restaurant is the perfect place to hang out, and they have great food. The staff is also very friendly! This place is almost like a home away from home. I highly recommend this hostel for anyone traveling to Nepal!

    The place is all I could ask for. Simple and cosy place with very helpful and friendly staff. Some of the washroom doors cannot be closed but not a big issue. Also in the dorms, not all beds have a powerplug, but the common area has plenty. Overall, it's a good place to base yourselves for days or even weeks.

    Friendly staff, chilled out vibe and nice, big, welcoming common areas. The hostel bar and food is delicious and affordable. Staff were very helpful in terms of organising things for me. The only thing that could be better is the showers (but this is a common issue in Kathmandu), the water was warm though so it could have been worse! Would recommend for solo travellers, whether you want to meet new people or just hang around by yourself.

    First time traveller. I was recommended alobar 1000 by a friend. I got there too early to check in so they offered to watch my bags for me so I could take a walk around Thamel. Super friendly and helpful personal! And so many fantastic people at this hostel. Will visit next time I'm in Kathmandu

    Really warm hosts. Facilities were sufficient. I personally faced no problems with hot water as mentioned in some of the other reviews. Electricity goes away sometimes but I think that's a generic thing in Nepal itself. Would recommend! ^^

    Our stay was pleasant. Being there in off season meant that there weren’t many travellers to socialise with and it was very cold Throughout the hostel, so if you want warmth, this is not the place. I’m sure In summer it would be a great place to stay. However the showers were hot and the staff very friendly - but the facilities are old and the mattress is very thin and hard. For what you pay for though, it did the job.

    Great value, great rooftop, and pretty good food too. Longer story, but had an issue where the staff broke my tablet after agreeing to put it in secure storage, and then they moved it to the general room while I was away. Took me almost 10 days before offering me ANY compensation (maybe $6 equivalent....).
