“Not bad”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

We didn't book in advance and the Hi Thamel Hostel was the first hotel that had rooms available so we decided not to be picky. It wasn't bad, the 2 rooms were in ok condition. the only problem were the bathrooms: one had only cold water, and the other had only boiling hot water. had to run between the 2 :) nice roof terrace with tables to relax in the evening.

Kathmandu Hi Thamel Hostel, is the best I can recommend for any traveler to Nepal, you will feel secure since the moment you arrive Kathmandu airport they will send a car to pick you up and drop you back if you want, the staffs are so polite and helpful and you can always enjoy your time with they greet you anytime they see you. rooms are very nice clean with windows and natural light, you will feel secure you can leave your phone, laptop, and other things.. they have good guides know a lot about the place especially Sharad Shakya.

Room Tip: Room in 2nd floor are good

i recommend every one not to be in the hostel cause it's not secure, plus the manager dilipm is worst too. The bathrooms are others worst but rooms are fine.

Anyway it's up to you if you want to be there. I didn't booked online i went there directly.

thank you for reading

Room Tip: just don't go there.

As I booked online, manager helped us to upgrade to private room free of charge. The staffs are very friendly, they did greeting whenever they saw you. The room was clean and tidy. As it is located in the center of Thamel, it is convenient enough for us to do shopping and eating here. It is a great experience. If you cannot find the hostel in the street, you can kindly call the hostel. Staffs are willing to come out and guide you.

I've stayed at Hi Thamel Hostel for a week now. I have a huge room at a very reasonable price with lots of natural light thanks to the two large windows and the high ceiling. I share a massive balcony with tree top views over a courtyard with a restaurant. I'm so glad my friends showed me this hostel because it has given me a homely sanctuary away from the chaos of the streets of Kathmandu. The hostel is tucked away from the main streets of Thamel down a one way street. The courtyard has many trees and plants and therefore provides a quiet, green environment. The staff are very friendly and helpful and make you feel at home. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Nepal.

Room Tip: Get a room that faces the courtyard

The rooms are simple but comfortable.
The location is good a bit hiding from the main street.
And most important the staff are very friendly. I stayed there 4 times, each time they got me back with a big smile.
I looked inside many hostels in Thamel and this one gave me the nicest feeling.

Stayed two nights May 2013. The staff were very helpful, particularly Dilip who very rapidly set up a trip to Chitwan National Park, including travel, accommodation and guides. Special mention also to our driver during our time in Kathmandu, Lama, who somehow made sense of the chaotic Kathmandu traffic, got us to where we were supposed to be on time, and showed us the sites of Kathmandu.

Room Tip: Get the dbl + single room upstairs - you will have your own bathroom and be out of the traffic areas...
