    I had a fantastic stay at Sara's Backpacker's Hostel and I have since returned! It is a nice place if you want to get alittle out of the craziness and touristy parts of Kathmandu and induldge a little more into a genuine Nepali lifestyle. Sara and her husband live on the top floor and really make you feel like family. It has a great view of the city from the rooftop and many shops where you can find anything you need around it. If you want to go into the city then you can just take a city bus

    Loved this place, Sara is super nice, makes delicious dinners. Avoid taking taxi from hostel, extremely pricy, better catching one from the street. Comfy rooms, no bunk beds which is nice, kitchen with fridge and food stalls everywhere in the area, with fresh yogurt, fruit and veggies you can make your food here. Great rooftop.

    One of my favourite hostels regarding the atmosphere. It feels more like a home than a hostel.

    The location is great for someone, who doesn’t need the city feeling and the noise and the many people. But it’s far away from everything else, no uber or tootler is picking you up but if you’re ready to walk a lot it doesn’t really matter! The facilities were better then I expected them to be, there is a kitchen for the hostel and the view from the rooftop terrace is amazing! The only thing which was not as good was that the beds were not cleaned after the last guests but all in all: Excellent

    Sara and her family are great warm and welcoming people, you should try the dhal bat she cooks, it’s delicious! She also accepted to keep my backpack as long as I needed, free of charge. This isn’t a touristy hostel and isn’t located in a touristy area which is what I enjoyed whilst staying there. There are shops and delicious, ridiculously cheap street food around the corner. The rooftop is really cool, it’s the perfect place to chill when feeling lazy.

    After we first arrived at the hostel everything was fine, we could stay for as long as we wanted and there was dinner, breakfast and they could do the laundry. So it all seemed good at the beginning, untill we got our first laundry bill. They expected me to pay 1400rupees for 3 T shirts, a pair of trousers, and some underwear, while they it was only 200. Also the so called free dinner was 350 and to make it even better, they just randomly kicked us out because it was fully booked.
