Property Description

We provide friendly, clean and affordable dorm and private accommodation with a social environment.

We'd love to help you discover the beautiful culture of this Himalayan land and we aim for a family environment with vegetarian friendly 'family dinner' every night (optional).

We are a group of young friendly staff who have all traveled extensively throughout Nepal and a little around South Asia and are happy to share our experience's with you. We are in close contact with various volunteer organisations and this is a big part of our daily grind. We love the diverse conversations and cultures around our dinner table and relaxed nights on the roof top with acoustic guitar and a chilled beer in hand. We started ONE96 with the hope of connecting people from around the world to volunteer and travel in this amazing country while having a friendly and affordable 'home base' to enjoy your time in Kathmandu.

    I stayed at One96 when I was in Nepal two years ago and didn't think twice about coming back again this time, so that speaks for itself! It's in a great location in Thamel, with everything you'd expect/need from a budget hostel (good wifi, comfy beds, etc), but the staff are what makes it really special- the guys are some of the nicest people I've met while travelling and will go out of their way to welcome you. This place is like home in Nepal, I wouldn't stay anywhere else! :)

    Most definitely the nicest people you could ever meet, was welcomed into the hostel like a family member. Ended up staying here 15 nights instead of only a few as the atmosphere was great. We had jamming nights on the roof as they all played guitar which we joined in for a sing song. Food was great and the beer was great. We also got taken out on the back of their motorbike where we went up to little villages in the mountains and on other days up to the lake. Will visit again one day for sure

    Great hostel ran by young Nepali guys who have a genuine interest to make sure you have a good time! They're full of advice and tips, and even get involved themselves with trips etc. Good atmosphere on the rooftop terrace, great location and food was nice. Would definitely recommend this hostel.

    Second time back so that should say it all. It’s the perfect place to get to know people and feel like part of a family. Have and will continue to recommend this hostel.

    Very friendly and helpful staff, great location. A little bit noisy for my taste and the facilities are a bit lacking. Otherwise, very good experience.

    Very Good

    Pros - Good price for private room, rooftop, friendly staff, cool cat, central location. Cons - Room very dark (couldn’t tell when it was daytime), blanket on bed was rough (could have done with a sheet underneath it).

    I booked based on reviews. I got a bit of a shock! I checked out the next day and waited till I have stayed in two other places in Nepal to compare. 0 security, impressive steel cage on stairs but never locked, stray dog s sleeping in stairs and landings. No Lock's on dorm door and poor lockers. Bathrooms are is cheap though. .

    Room lacks lots of needed stuff. Idealt with two employees from the place one of them was completely unhelpful and the other was much more if help. Was really irritated from the building's locked entrance and had to wait for a while until someone noticed me and opened the gate.
