    Fireflies is in a great location: right next to the other hostels such as Zostel and Wanderthirst, and just a short walk away from the centre of Thamel. Everyone there was really friendly and relaxed, and there is a beautiful rooftop chill out space which was so nice to hang out in in the evenings. Definitely recommend!

    Fireflies is a cheap hostel in Kathmandu. At NPR 290 a night for a bed in the 12-room dorm, this is a steal! For the price, I think this is a great option if you are ok with bare bones accommodation and have a tight budget. The staff is kind and helpful. It could use some sprucing up, especially in the bathrooms and it could use a few more places to charge phones etc (without running cables precariously all over the dorm room floors). All in all, value for the money!

    Lovely welcoming atmosphere with people always around even during the day to chat to (perfect if you are solo travelling) and really close to the main strip of shops and such in Thamel. Ask anyone who works or stays there what’s good to do and they’ll give you fabulous recommendations! Would definitely stay again when I’m back in Kathmandu!

    We had only one night in fireflies hostel. The beds are not really comfortable and the bathrooms are not really clean. But the common area looks really nice and it would have been a really nice chillout, if there wouldn‘t be a guy scaring people all the time (living there obviously for months already).

    Place is cheap and that's the only thing they got going for it. Only booked the place because the hostel next door which I was staying had no vacancies. I ended up going to that hostel to take a shower and use the wifi because it was so bad at this hostel. If you can book at Zostel which is far superior.

    There are murderers in nicer prison beds than what I paid for. There was more mould the paint on the walls. Disgustingly dirty. One guy checked out of my dorm at 5:30am to catch a bus, a girl checked in an hour later and was given his used bed with unwashed duvet, linen, etc. Staff member also lit a cigarette in the dorm. Awful, felt like I was staying in an air raid shelter crossed child’s bedroom and i think I sleeping on a moving belt sander would have been more comfortable. Cheap drinks tho.

    Don’t go here, disgusting rooms and facilities are all broken or close-to-being broken. The common area would’ve been decent if it wasn’t for the old drunk man who was incredibly threatening and scared everyone back to their rooms in a matter of minutes. Go to zostel, go somewhere else, just not here.

    Disgusting and gross. The toilet seat was FILTHY. There was urine ON the toilet seat along with some disgusting pubic hair. The dorms are super crammed. If someone’s talking anywhere in the property, you can hear everything loud and clear. Nobody had the decency to keep their voices low and a random boy (one of the staff) cane in the middle of the night and switched on the light for no reason. It was a girls dorm, luckily I woke up and asked him to leave. Who knows how long he’d been watching!
