We ended up staying at Alobar for a week for the beginning of our travels in Kathmandu. The initial vibe of the place is pretty good, with a nice looking lobby area, music and a book swap. Our room was a six bed dorm, which was regularly cleaned and swept by the cleaning staff who come around 11.30am. They open...

Despite the 3 star rating I would definitely stay here again when I come back, and recommend you do also. The 3 stars is to serve a warning for their food - I ate many many meals there, but always vegetarian, except for the last night where I threw caution to the wind and order chicken momos. I ended up...

It is such a nice place with an amazing rooftop and good vibes. It is the perfect place to get to know other people. The only thing I didnt like were the bathrooms and toilets because the cabins were really small. Still I would always come back to this hostel and in the end wished I could have stayed longer.

I used this place as my base whilst in Kathmandu, it was so great! Right in Thamel so easy to get out to cafes bars shops. The hostel is big and spacious, with a Great hang out area on the roof where everyone eats, writes, reads, just chills out (a lot of weed smokers here! So beware if that's really...

Everything screams cliché about what I am about to tell you about this wonderful hostel, situated in the pulsating Thamel district of 'Backpacker Capital' Kathmandu. People are welcoming and kind, among the staff, as well as other visitors. I got to a friendly state of familiarity with such a number of people in Alobar1000, that I felt like distant family,...

good location, good gathering of people from all around the world, a nice rooftop for socializing, very welcoming and supportive staffs, but a very old building, not the cleanest and a lot of mosquitoes.

This place is nothing as we expected. We were recommended through a friend. We had to be moved three times from different rooms as facilities and other things did not work. The staff were not apologetic. They wanted us to pay for the upgrade that we only had because they could not provide us the room that we ordered. We...

I arrived at Kathmandu with 30 minutes to New Year's Day kicking in. On departing the airport, tired and having pre-arranged a taxi lift by the hostel, I was greeted by a mob of men, of them two men appeared to be connected to the hostel. One held my name. The other was a driver. It was a tad intimidating....

My partner and I were quite excited when we arrived to alobar1000 , we read the reviews on trip advisor and it seemed that other visitors had enjoyed their time , so we thought we would give it a go. The staff were nice but not overly friendly. We booked to stay in a private room with our own bathroom....

Good happy atmosphere in the hostel and a nice rooftop bar/ social area but this was spoilt by smoking being allowed under covered areas on the rooftop which I personally didn't like. Rooms were v basic and I was concerned that they only asked for the bed sheet and pillow case back at the end of the stay (do they...
