Great place to stay:)”

Very friendly hostel in Pokhara, close to the lake. I had really great time here. All the staff is amazing, such lovely people, always ready to help, give you advice or just to have a chat! they really make you feel welcome:) The beds are really comfortable, the room are spacious and the bathrooms clean. There are good vibes here and it's easy to meet nice new people to organise a track with or just walk around the city and lake. I definitely raccomand it:)

We had a perfect experience at Pokhara Backpacker‘s Hostel. The staff were always friendly and helpful and the room was lovely. They stored our luggage while we were trekking and when we came back, we got an upgrade to a nice room with balcony for our last night. Highly recommended!

Awesome!”

This place is amazing! The owner is extremely friendly and welcoming and made sure my stay in Pokhara was a success. He helped me plan my Annapurna hike and transport to Besi Shahar. They even did my laundry after I came back from my hike for a great price. Considering how dirty it was this was much appreciated! Everything came back clean and neatly folded. They happily stored my luggage while I was out hiking. I also made friends here easily. All tourist attractions and facilities such as the TIMS registration office are easily accessible and walkable from this location, although if you need transport just ask at reception. Looking forward to coming here again. Thanks for a great stay!

Amazing place and great staff!”

This hostel is amazing. Very welcoming from when we arrived. Our room was amazing with lots of windows and an amazing view. Every morning we had a new breakfast! We were greeted every morning with smiles and suggestions for things to do and lots of recommendations. Free bikes to use. In the evenings they have a fire going so you can sit around and chat! One evening they had a Nepalese dinner preparation in the kitchen and taught us to cook, lots of laughs and it felt like being at home! Best hostel !

Clean bath, comfortable beds”

Great price if you need a post-trek crash with hot water, clean en suite bath and comfy bed. Staff seems very young and work 24/7, which is a bit disconcerting on their behalf :/ Laundry came back dirtier than delivered but they redid it. Bought a tourist bus ticket to Kathmandu for 700 but it ended up being a local bus which shod have been 400, so watch out when booking stuff there. They kept telling me to take expensive taxis instead of just giving me info about taking city busses around town. In short, sleep here, book other stuff elsewhere.

The bed (bottom bunk) was hands down the most comfortable I've had in six months of traveling through Asia. The duvet is large and comfortable. The wifi is strong. Not a very social place, but the facilities definitely made up for it.
