    Was in and out of Kathmandu over the span of 3 weeks, and this place was the saving Grace. Great staff, lovely environment, and no fear of getting locked out of your own hostel. 10/10 would be the only spot I'd go back to if still on the hostel vibe

    Zostel is clean, accessibly located, and has nice accommodations. I booked a private room that had AC, toiletries, and a lovely view. The staff are also so nice and knowledgeable of the area! They let me keep my luggage there after check-out so I could maximize my last few hours of exploring. The cafe is a great place to meet new people and eat some yummy food. It’s a bit pricier compared to local joints but the connivence makes it worth it. I definitely recommend.

    It was a lovely experience. This hostel is an amazing place to stay and interact with staff and other travelers. I've heard about Zostel before but I never had the chance to stay until now. My trip in Nepal ended with this nice experience of staying in Zostel Kathmandu and it was all great. I really recommend this place and I guarantee it's worth it from all the perspectives. Thank you so much to all the staff there! T.

    Great place to settle in Kathmandu. Nice restaurant with good food. Very peaceful atmosphere. Air conditioning. Pretty good wifi. They held my things while I went trekking, ordered taxis for me because I didn't have a Nepal sim card, there is a very friendly dog and lots of nice travelers to talk to. The person at the front desk knows everything about Nepal and can tell you the best places to go and how to get there.

    The only thing that stops me giving a perfect 10 is that the lockers are easily accessed by lifting the bed. Otherwise this place is the best hostel in kathmandu. Friendly staff, clean rooms. Great atmosphere!

    I enjoyed my 3 night stay at Zostel... Overall clean and safe. The staff were friendly and supportive in providing details and other info. The cafe downstairs serves great food and drinks. I spend a lot of time at the cafe and even the attendant was friendly and chatty too. I would recommend the place and will definitely stay here on my next trip.

    I really liked this hostel! I stayed at Elbrus Home which has higher ratings but this is definitely better in terms of cleanliness and atmosphere. Rooms were super clean and they had hand soap available, right next to a really good restaurant with live music. Overall good!

    Great place for an affordable price. What really stands out is the food (the kitchen is shared with Flock Hostel) and helpful staff. Unfortunately the rooms are quite small, except the private ones, and dark but that is to be expected because of its location in very dense Thamel. What is nice is that it is placed in a quiet place of the otherwise busy district. You will also a chance to meet a nice doggy and there travel help in the premises.
