    Staying at Wanderlust was awesome. It's got a great location for wandering around the city, and a nice atmosphere if you'd just grab a beer from the shop and chill. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly- they go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay. It was perfect for my short trip, and I hope to come back to Almaty soon!

    The hostel was great, nice chilled out atmosphere, nice places to sit and chat, good living arrangements. Kassym was excellent, great fun and able to offer help. I would definitely stay again.

    Don't be put off by the lack of reviews for this hostel as it is brand new (~10 days old). This hostel has a lot going for it - great location on a quiet side street, friendly staff and a great outdoor terrace. We tried several hostels in Almaty and this was the best. Dorm room was good and overall cleanliness was good as well. To the hostel, it would be good if the terrace was non-smoking since the smoke smell blows into the dorm at night. All else was great.

    The main manager for this hostel is SO lovely, but some of the other staff can be a little disorganised. In general the facilities could do with some renovation (broken lockers, only 2 working toilets and showers) but the location and atmosphere are amazing. If you're looking for a chilled place to stay, would recommend.

    My only real complaint is about the taciturn that was in charge when I checked in. First, she was kind of rude. Second, she walked me through the upstairs while I was still carrying my bag rather than show me to my room first. Third, she showed me to the wrong room (I had booked private and she showed me to the dorm). Fourth, She overcharged me. I had paid a partial deposit through the website which she refused to acknowledge and told me I could go somewhere else if I didn't like the price,

    While the location and decor is pretty good, the staff had the completely wrong dates for me. I booked a private room for three nights and only one of them did I get a private room. Normally this would be fine, but there were several other people who had the same thing happen to them. I really would not recommend staying here unless you're okay with changing beds every night.
