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.

    Awesome hostel in Kathmandu. Great location near Thamel for all your shopping needs but on a side street so it’s not too hectic. The cafe downstairs does great food and is a nice place to meet fellow travellers. Stayed here before and after our trek and the staff were amazing and helpful each time. Thanks Zostel!

    A really great hostel!! So clean, friendly staff, friendly room mates & nice comfy beds with charging sockets & bedside lights. Really good for only £5 a night. They didn’t have room for us for another night else we would of stayed for our full time in Kathmandu. Thanks for a great stay.

    This place is almost perfect. The staff is the best and accommodating. Really nice and the bar/restaurant connected is so convenient. Plus it is the best location right outside of Thamel. The only reason I don't give a perfect score is I spoke to the activity desk for help with a pack list for hiking (going solo) and once he found out I wasn't buying a group tour he was so cold and curt. He said he would help me with a packing list only if I spent $700 on a group hike. This is my only gripe.

    Zostel was awesome! Really well set up hostel with a great cafe, loads of cool spaces to relax and comfortable rooms. It’s located a two minute walk from all the popular markets in Thamel but feels really peaceful once you’re back at the hostel itself. Overall would definitely recommend.

    Great location and friendly staff. The property itself is pretty cool and colorful. There's a lively cafe with good food and people hanging out. And a rooftop with amazing views of Kathmandu. Easy access to Thamel. Got a private room. It was great and spacious. The bathroom wasn't luxurious, but that's expected from a hostel.

    I liked this hostel. Super comfy beds, donation based yoga class in the morning, nice vibe. There was construction during my stay that woke me up in the mornings but the hostel is just trying to improve its facilities no big deal. Overall I liked the location, it was affordable and the staff were very nice and helpful. Would recommend

    Felt like home and welcomed. I was lucky enough to have friendly room mates. I believe it's a good place for an Indian back packer.

    Staff is amazing, helpful, kind, generous with their willingness to help. Cafe was awesome. Really good food and great masala tea:)) however apparently the water was having issues while I was there. It wasn’t turning on on some floors at certain times of the day. Definitely not a fancy stay but a good place to book if you want to meet some awesome people and eat some great food.
