Overview

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.

Location

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.

    This was a very nice, clean hostel. They were super responsive to emails and helpful with getting a ride situated from the airport. The cafe was great to grab a bite and a drink. I did end up finding somewhere else to stay for my last night because my coughing fits made me feel like I needed a cheaper private room than the zostel had to offer. I would say you get what you pay for though and would highly recommend staying at the zostel.

    10/10 for finding my lost passport and keeping it safe. I foolishly left in the room the morning we travelled to Pokhara. On request, the staff then took a photo of my visa and emailed it on to me, so I could get my TIMS trekking permit. They had emailed me it within 10 minutes. Really, really kind and nice of them. The do a free activity everyday. So a bunch of us went to some museums with a guide from the hostel. It didn't feel like a 'free but please tip' trip, it was actually free!

    My expectations were high when I booked the hostel and Zostel exceeed them. I was really impressed with the rooftop hammock which offers the largest window to the stars. The restaurant offers simply yummy stuff although it's not the fastest one in the world. Take it easy there. The staff is cool and friendly - you can ask them anything. I hear that the guest in Nepal is God so enjoy that as well. Maybe having your own sturdier padlock will improve your security feeling.

    Zostel had easily the best vibe of all the hostels in Thamel. The location is tucked away right in the midst of all the food, shops, cafes, and bustling retail streets of Kathmandu. their rooftop hammock has one of the best views of the city, in my opinion. We loved the location and the energy as soon as we arrived. The service was excellent as well. I accidentally left my Kindle in the room after I left for a weeklong trek, but they found it and saved it for me. No regrets staying here!

    Had an amazing time at Zostel! It was quite challenging to find on the first day but well worth it once discovered. The staff is very nice and helpful. You can book taxi, bus and trekking there. The food in the cafe is really good with large portions. The hostel was always filled with new people to meet and activities were provided every day.

    I had a great stay at Zostel but you’re not really getting value for money in terms of facilities here. You’re paying more to be in a social climate - which is a great one, don’t get me wrong. If socialising goes above everything else then it’s probably worth the money. But I thought it was very expensive in comparison to other hostels.

    Great rooftop and awesome bar to meet other travelers. Huge bed lockers and they have events everyday, but they are pricier than the other places in the area.

    Loved my stay here! The showers actually got warm (unusual in Nepal) and the food was great. This hostel is great for even the most introverted traveler that still wants to meet friends.
