Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I stayed in a dorm at hostel One96 during a volunteer project in kathmandu. Later my gf joined me and we stayed in a private room. In total I spent about 2 weeks at this hostel.

I absolutely loved the atmosphere in their rooftop communal area. The guys who run the place are an amazing group of people. They are friendly, helpful and very talented musicians. There’s nothing better than sitting around the fire together and listening to them play local and western music. One of them lent me his trekking pants for 2 weeks and another guided us on a motorbike trip to a nearby monastery. They did this out of the kindness of their hearts and without asking for anything in return.

If you stay in kathmandu, you must stay here. I promise you’ll love it so much that you’ll want to extend your stay!!

The atmosphere is the best I have experienced in any hostel.

You come for a few days, then stay for a week and return multiple times in your trip and future trips.

Come for the small-medium sized social vibe that's created by the owners, staff, local friends and the travellers, chatting, singing with guitars, laughing, ninja, and having a general good time.

The rooftop is a great environment to chill, smoke, drink and socialise or just read a book on your own, all are welcome here in the lovely vibe they have created.

The atmosphere is magical specially at night at the terrace.
In this hostel you feel at home, like a sharing a flat with good friends. The guys who run it treats you like family.
At night there is usually fire on the terrace and they play guitars, sing and do it very well!
It has been very nice to be able to feel at home so far from yours ..
Highly recommended!

Dhan'yavāda guys! You are great!
A big hug to everyone!
I will always remind you

Alba from Barcelona

"Thanks to you" ;)

This was by far the best hostel experience I've had in my life. I've never felt more at home. The boys ate one96 went out of their way to show us the secret spots of the city, and welcomed us like family. From family dinners at local momo spots, to late nights playing guitar and singing with the rest of the guests - this was great.

The bathroom and dorms are comfortable, and what you'd expect to receive for the price, [which is insanely cheap!!! woo!!].

Will be returning again, that's for sure!

Hostel One96 is a friendly, welcoming home run by lovely people. The beds are comfortable, the cats are cuddly and the singing around the fire on the funky roof terrace is heart-warming. Highly recommended!

I stayed at this hostel for some nights and I loved every minute of it! :-)
The building itself is nothing special, shower wasn't the best but the people.... wow! The people are so nice, and funny, and helpfull, and beautiful, and the music 💚💚💚 Everyone seemed to be able to play a guitar and/or sing! I was very impressed!
I wasn't ready to leave but I had a flight....
Thanks guys for making my stay in Kathmandu so memorable!

This was the first place my friend and I stayed when we were travelling and it was just what we wanted- friendly, down to earth, in a good location and fairly priced. It's a great place to meet fellow travellers and the hosts were so lovely and more than happy to show us around areas of Kathmandu! I only wish we could have returned later in our trip like we intended!

Had a wonderful time at ONE96. As it's quite a new hostel there weren't that many people around - but plenty of the staff and locals to get to know and connect with! Had some great evenings with new friend's I met there over affordable drinks and fun jam sessions! thanks you everything!
Best of all they have the cutest hostel cat you can imagine... definitely worth visiting! ;)

This was my first hostel in Nepal. The staff are very kind and assisted us in planning our ACT and even gave us a spare map. They know all the places to go whether it's for dinner or if you lost your wallet and need to go to the tourist police. Thankful because i managed to get it back. Thanks for everything!

if you don't have a very heavy baggage, walk out of the airport to Old Baneswar Bus Stop. Take a bus to Balaju and then it is a 15 minutes walk from there.
