    Wanderthirst is the best hostel of our trip so far (6 weeks in) we have even booked to come back again after our trek! the staff are so friendly and have helped us organise everything. Farid has helped us organise our trek as well as rafting and is super friendly and knowledgable! Went from feeling overwhelmed about knowing where to go and what to see to having it all planned! The hostel has a super great common area which creates great conversation with other guests!

    This is an amazing hostel - blew my expectations out of the water. Awesome rooms. Awesome staff. Awesome location. Awesome common areas. I met so many new people. Best hostel I’ve stayed at yet. Delicious food. Most cringe worthy name though. Stay here.

    Really good hostel with amazing staff! We stayed here for over a week between our two stints in Kathmandu in various rooms. All rooms were clean and the view from the rooftop has to be the best in Kathmandu!

    Good location, easy walk to everywhere in Thamel, great sunset spot. Beds relatively comfortable, good that each bed has light/power. 1/4 toilets on the floor flushed for the majority of my stay... otherwise would stay here again!

    Very Good

    I stayed upstairs in the 14 person common dorm. The area was reasonable. Cleanliness was maintained and the sheets were nice. There is no place to store your entire bag though lockers are available to store your valuables. The common area is actually quite nice but the vibe fore the days I was there was very mellow. The bathrooms were regualarly cleaned and maintained. This is a perfectly functional hostel. However it lacked spark.

    They seem to have put so much into making the outside space wonderful but not much else... when arriving at the hostel we weren’t shown around. The bed had sand it in... I’m not sure how this happened but there was loads of it... the toilets and bathrooms are passable at best. Sad because I wanted to stay here over anywhere else in Kathmandu because of the tattoo studio and reviews but it didn’t live up to expectation. The staff however were quite sweet
