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

    This is by far my favourite hostel in Kathmandu. I have stayed in multiple hostels in Kathmandu before, but none of them compare to the comfort, atmosphere, location, and friendliness of the staff. I absolutely loved my stay here. I will definitely be back! The location is perfect. The beds are so comfortable. The showers are hot. Zero complaints. A big shout out to my favourite staff member ‘Ashray’. THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY STAY SO AMAZING. I will never forget my time at this hostel!

    As well as being generally lovely, the staff went out of their way to help me out when I had trouble with my flights and I am SO grateful. The people that work at this hostel are all stars. The facilities are really good and the location is perfect, make sure you visit the garden of dreams just round the corner. Only criticism is the shower cubicles could do with an extra hook to save stuff getting wet!!

    Great hostel with a large common room and terrace. Very friendly and helpful staff, will help you with anything. Very good location, just on the edge of Thamel, and a few restaurants in the same building (I highly recommend the Japanese restaurant below this hostel).

    This hostel was perfect and is probably the most comfortable in Kathmandu, would totally recommend. It has nice and high quality common areas, a menu and bar with tasty stuff, reasonable prices, good showers and it really is a great hostel. Having said that, it’s perfect if you want to work or relax on your own. Even though you can meet people, the atmosphere feels more like a solo traveler who wants to stay solo. If you want to meet people stay at zostel kathmandu, they have yoga & activities.
