    BEST HOSTEL I’VE EVER BEEN IN, for sure! One of the best parts of being in Nepal was this hostel. I just felt so secure, cozy and helped by everyone arround the hostel. Atmosphere was always great, food was super nice and not expensive. Location was AMAZING, you can feel relaxed in the middle of Kathmandu which is quite difficult as it is a very crowded city; so it’s the perfect oasis in the middle of the caos. THANKS YOU!!!! Also a really good place for female solo travellers #keepupgirls

    Wanderthirst is in a great location. Right next to Thamel, you have everything you need, but it is secluded enough to give you a peaceful stay away from the bustle of Kathmandu. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The staff were kind and helpful. We will be staying here in the future!

    Overall nice place, they make a beautiful coffee too. We stayed in a private room as it was our first couple of nights travelling after long flights so wanted to catch up on sleep. Unfortunately the private doubles are on the ground floor by the entrance so we were kept awake by multiple drunk guests entering and deciding to sing, stumble around, and shower before going upstairs to disturb their roommates. On the other hand, the private twin rooms are away from any noise and are really lovely.

    Friendly staff and overall a nice atmosphere at the cafe. But within the rooms itself, bed sheets had a weird stench, as though sheets and blankets haven’t been washed prior to your arrival. Toilets are not really clean as well. The hostel also provides an airport shuttle service, but prices are super steep, at 15 USD for a short ride (other hostels are providing shuttle service at a much cheaper rate for a similar distance).
