Property Description

Hello and Namaste,

Yakety Yak Hostel is located in Thamel. The heart of the hip and happening Kathmandu. It is a planned and purpose-built hostel and not some residential building converted to a hostel. We’ve worked with design firms and professional architects to bring you the aesthetically designed beds. Rooms have been designed to restrict street noise through sound insulation.

Since Yakety Yak Hostel is purpose built, we’ve spent a lot of time planning each area carefully. There are five spacious private rooms and 7 large dorms. A total of 72 beds. Segregated showers with running hot and cold water and WC areas, a huge lounge area, a sunny terrace and the coolest bar in town. We also have a kitchen, wash area, luggage storage and a travel desk for your needs.

Our Hostel with is one with a distinct spirit and professional management with plenty of amenities and facilities at a value for money rate.

We are located in the traffic allowed section of Thamel, so you can drive right up in your taxi.

Rest assured, you’ll wake up refreshed. We have tested over 8 different mattresses before we settled on the ones we loved. We’ve worked with design firms and professional architects to bring you the aesthetically designed beds. Rooms have been designed to restrict street noise through sound insulation.

With a segregated washroom, you’ll always find a shower to walk into and a WC at your disposal. Head over to the lounge or the sunny terrace and then order breakfast from a choice of three restaurants.

Head out for your day or sightseeing or shopping. In return, you can relax and swap stories at the bar drinking ice cold beer. If its the weekend, then watch the English Premier League or La Liga on our big screen and cheer for your favorite club. Or just chill and strum a guitar and sing your favorite song.

A long day, later just check up on your social media in-bed where there are free Wi-Fi and a convenient charging port to charge your phone. Then hit the sack for another day of adventure. View House Rules

    I stayed at Y-Yak recently - going to and coming from an Annapurna Base camp trek. Great staff, great location, good food, and an outdoor terrace that is the ideal place for cool evening breezes after the heat of a Kathmandu day - I can definitely recommend Yakety Yak Hostel. One note of caution - the building fronts onto one of the busier streets in Thamel, which means the dormitory windows also front the same street. Bring earplugs.

    Stayed here on two occasions when coming in and out of Kathmandu. Very good and clean place with central location and extremely nice staff. I was also able to leave my suitcase in their storage for a week which was very convenient while I was in Pokhara. Definitely recommend yakety yak to everyone.

    Throughout my time in nepal I checked in and out of the Yakety Yak around 5 times. In total I spent around 30 nights at this hostel. After all this time I can say that this is the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The staff are all fantastic. The owners are active in improving the place constantly. Most of the time Bijay is hanging around here. He is a fantastic generous Nepali guy. If you are wondering where to stay in Kathmandu? This is the place.

    Newish hostel that knows what they’re doing comfort wise. Bathrooms & bunks are very clean & well set out. Staff are fabulous. And a big THANKYOU for their help & advice. But the noise from the street at night is quite disturbing. And being low season there wasn’t much atmosphere there. And l think it’s a bit over-priced.
