“The alobar!!!!”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

The alobar is "the" place for anyone looking for cheap accommodation in Kathmandu. There are a variety of rooms ranging from 6-10 person dorms, single and double private rooms. The rooms are clean and the only thing i can pick is the construction works going on next door. The showers are hot when the power is on and the toilets are very crammed. The water often runs out but this isn't alobars fault. Nepal has many political issues and the electricity and water are 2 of the things that are just part of life in Kathmandu. If you have no plans, wanna meet great people and have a good time then this is the place to be. All the staff are fantastic and more than willing to help with anything you ever need. Free wifi, hot showers, decent beds, prices start 300rs for a dorm.

Perfect place to meet people and go out. The only downside to this hostel is the bathrooms are terrible and often there is no water early in the morning. Just for the atmosphere and the location, its worth overlooking this fact.

We stayed at Alobar1000 for 4 nights in March 2013. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and very well priced. The terrace is an excellent place to meet new people over drinks and a smoke. All in all it made Kathmandu much more fun than it would have been otherwise.

Your backpacking ? Your plan is "no plan" ?Good. This is your place.
Although, you have to consider the availability of water and electrity, you'll find the most smiling staff as well as the best people over your travels ! If you wanna volunteer, find work, express yourself as an artist, just ask them! They'll take wherever ! You will learn a lot about this diversified country but way much more about yourself, trust me.
Thanks to tashi and shiva !

My boyfriend and I stayed at Alobar last month for a couple of nights. It was without a doubt the best budget guesthouse we stayed in during our trip, it has a wonderful atmosphere with a fairy light lit hanging out area and a comfy cushioned room for socialising or reading! The people that run the guesthouse are very friendly and smiley, I would recommend this hostel for anyone backpacking in Nepal!!
