Want the ideal base to plan your hiking adventures? Choose Zostel Kathmandu. You'll find us in Kathmandu's main backpacker neighbourhood, Thamel – the ideal spot for getting the most out of your trip around Nepal. We have a relaxed rooftop bar and a common room with a friendly vibe where you can get tips on trekking the Himalayas from other travellers. Worked up an appetite? Order food in our garden café or lie back in our supersize hammocks after a long day with your mates.


Our neighbourhood's brimming with travel agents who can advise you or help you book trips across the country. Or take a 15-minute walk to the Garden of Dreams to experience a slice of nature right here in the city. To get here from Tribhuvan International Airport, we'd recommend taking a 25-minute taxi drive, as there isn't a bus that goes straight to Thamel.

Rooms and Dorms

From both our private rooms and mixed or female-only dorms, you’ll have stunning mountain or valley views. Most have en-suites and all bathrooms have hot showers (which isn't always a given in Nepal). You'll have your linen included and a handy light next to your bunk, so you won't need to keep your neighbour awake if you're reading. There's also a security locker under the bed to store your bags in.

Extras and activities

With art all over the walls, our space is as colourful as the traditional prayer flags we hang up everywhere. We've got free Wi-Fi, so you can Skype your family before going off-grid to the Annapurna Circuit on a multi-day hike, and there's a washing machine to do your laundry in. After a full day of hill climbing, let off some steam in our cosy games room. Got time to explore the city as well as the mountains? Have a chat with the staff on our 24-hour reception about the best local sights, from temples to markets.

    Stayed here for a week before trekking, and also a week during the lockdown in Nepal. The staff was really helpful and made us feel safe. This was my first time travelling alone, and I don't think I could have stayed at a better place!

    As this is a chain, you don't get the intimate/hospitable atmosphere like you do with independent hostels. I had a painful, injured leg and the staff offered me bottom bunk, but gave me top bunk in the end; disappointing. Just some feedback for the staff. However, the beds are comfortable, the lockers are huge, there's a huge variety of breakfast (expensive though) and the outside areas are amazing, making it easy to meet other travellers. Big shout out to the manager! I recommend this place.

    Great place to stay with unbelievable food. A little bit away from the centre of Kathmandu but not a huge concern. Often only a stop over to move on. Ended up staying here twice. Highly recommend.

    Great place to stay in Kathmandu! The only thing is that the lockers under the beds do not really provide much safety, since the locked objects are accessible by lifting the mattress of the lower bed.

    Perfect hostel to base yourself either side of some trekking. Nice bar/restaurant area at the front, good for meeting other travellers. Useful storage facilities for leaving luggage while trekking, and travel desk for advice.

    We stayed in a double private and the bed had definitely been slept in and not changed from the night before. Also, we stayed for a week and not once did anyone come and change the bins, change the coffee cups(bit grim after 3-4 days). Other than that the facilities, location and restaurant were absolutely great.

    Average stay here - I was in a downstairs room which wasn't great, super noisy as right next to café and reception and bathroom wasn't good. However the rooftop terrace is awesome and nice communal area. Location is good, still close to all shops, restaurants, cafes etc. Food at onsite cafe is good, recommend the masala omelette for breakfast!
