"I shared a twin room with my friend and it was great. We stayed for 12 nights and felt right at home. The shared bathroom is cleaned every day and we were offered the option of getting our room cleaned too. If you are feeling lazy you can get food at the hostel, average prices and good quality. There is a good social area and the wifi is pretty good. Perfect for backpackers, single, couple or groups."
"I had a very comfortable stay here. The beds were cozy, pillows were soft, and blankets were warm. Water tanks to refill your bottles was available too. Staff were super friendly and helpful! Thanks again"
"Stayed in the backpacker rooftop room, must be the best view in Kathmandu. Great hostel, great staff and great location... The social room with a PlayStation in the rooftop was great for socialising in the evenings. Would recommend to a friend and will stay here again after everest base camp."
"Yosh and his team at Wanderthirst catered for my and a couple of friends for over a week. Everything about this hostel was super friendly and relaxed. All the other guests were respectful and fun - each day we explored the city and enjoyed what Kathmandu had to offer. It goes to show that the hostel attracts friendly and fun backpackers alike. It was great learning about the culture of Nepal and the hostel helped make the stay even that much better. The staff were extremely helpful in giving us tips for places to eat and visit which is always great when you get to a new city. A big shout out to the games room which has a playstation and up to date games, Fifa nights were entertaining and competitive!"
"I travelled alone stayed at WanderThirst in fall 2018 for firstly 10 days and then later 4 days. The hostel is without a doubt the best hostel I have stayed at so far, and not only in Nepal! This is both with regards to location, interior & design and the vibe. WanderThirst is quiet, yet in heart of Thamel. Its clean, cosy and has bright and beautiful rooms and great chillout areas, and last but not least the vibe is amazing between the staff, management and fellow travellers. It is very social, but also has space for you to be yourself, and I felt at ease and at home there. I have nothing but high and warm recommendations for this place and will definetily choose WanderThirst next time I will be in KTM!"
"In a world of its own. Doesn’t even feel like you’re in the middle of this busy city. The communal area is really nice and they show sports games on a big projector downstairs. Plenty of hammocks, Great location, amazing staff and delicious coffee! Will definitely be coming back."

"Really chill place to stay, with a nice atmosphere. Dorms are comfy and I slept well here with a cool breeze moving through the room at night. Reliable warm showers would be a big step up 😉
The location is perfect in Kathmandu and this served me as a good base to get myself organised before heading out into the country."
"If you’re in Kathmandu I highly recommend staying at this hostel! The staff were amazing and they provided all you can eat lunch and dinner for only $1.50. This hostel is very affordable and is nearby Thamel and Mt. Everest Momos which is a plus. "

"I absolutely loved my several stays in WanderThirst hostels! The one with the amazing staff in Kathmandu, great food and cool and joyfull atmosphere! Man, those campfires were lit. And the eco-friendly one at the hillside. Wow! I slept under the stars, shared meals with lovely people and enjoyed even lovelier sunsets. The staff everywhere were so kind but most of all funny!"

"Loved this hostel! Very short walk into the centre of Thamel which means at night you don’t have all the noise! Lockers you have to pay for and there’s a key to use them so can’t use yourself, but I felt safe here. Did meet some people as a single female but only because they were in my dorm, don’t think it’s overly social otherwise. Was moved rooms during my stay (absolutely fine) because they were changing the mattresses so presumably all new mattresses too! Only complaint is it’s so cold !"
England, Female, 18-24
"Great view, nice vibes, spacious communal space. Great location.

"Hostel has great common spaces outside to chill and hang out. Facilities were okay, always had to walk up or down stairs to find the hot shower that was working. Staff is pretty helpful but at times seemed a little disorganized."
USA, Male, 25-30
"Near Thamel with nice common areas. With a little effort could look cleaner and bit more organized, the potential is there. Maybe my bad luck, but the crowd when I was there was a bit of a stoner clique. What I definitely didn't find ok was staff hogging the toilettes at peak use in the morning. Shiva was cool organizing evening meals! "
Spain, Male, 31-40
"Super close walk to the essentials in Thamel, but far away enough to get away from the noise and traffic. Really friendly and cool staff, clean enough rooms and bathrooms, lockers in the rooms and comfy enough beds, and great hangouts to meet up with other travelers. Would definitely come back! Oh well. No hot showers at the moment, but that is also an experience :)"
Sweden, Female, 25-30
"Such a cool atmosphere to relax in and the staff there make it that much better! Definitely recommend to stay here if you come to Kathmandu! They picked us up from the airport, too, which is nice to take advantage of so you don't have to think about how to get there when you arrive."

Denmark, Female, 25-30
"A place that made me feel desire of spend more time in Kathmandu. They have cine area, playstation, work area, coffee shop, restaurant, travel agency, in a really nice commom open area. The best part for me is that it's just 5 min walking from Thamel, but in the time far enough of the noise and polution of the Kathmandu central area. Quite place good for you spend a time working or relaxing. The staff is really friendly and helpfull. Clean and new place."

And great location in the middle of Thamel in a non-traffic road!. I stayed here because I couldn't find better hostels than this at this price point. Will definitely book again!"
Rogger Davis, Spain
"Choosing Wanderthirst was one of the best decision of choosing my accommodation partner. I was quite surprised with the services they provided in that price. I wasn't expecting that level of service from them. The rooms were clean and the common sitting are was the best because you could meet a-lot of people from alot of different countries. The food was great the price point. They had coworking space in the hostel itself so that the travellers can use their fast internet service for the necessary things they needed."

The beds were comfortable and I didn't face any problem staying here. It was my short stay though I would love to come back and stay here. Keep the spirit up."

"This place has an excellent outdoor dining and cafe area for meeting fellow travellers, and everything they have available at the hostel is really affordable. The staff were also always willing to sit down and make friendly conversation, as well as offer helpful advice about the area. I even bought my own alcohol for a favourite cocktail that they didn't have the supplies for, and they just kept it behind the bar and poured drinks for me out of them, no charge (I tipped well for this luxury, of course)."
"Really enjoyed it there. Great place to chill and talk with some locals. staff is also really nice. one of the best hostels I had so far"
"Excellent place for solo travelers to meet new people, good food, comfort meets the cost of stay. I had a great time and made good friends, tottaly recommend this place! Staff was very friendly and helpful. I arrived late at night, still there was someone to check me in and show around."
