Pokhara Youth Hostel Reviews

Pokhara Youth Hostel is a budget hostel attracting huge crowds with its low prices, central location, and communitarian vibe. However, it is neither too attractive nor clean and tidy enough. Therefore, if your idea of the perfect hostel is a neat and cosy place with some privacy, then you might be better off looking somewhere else.

The Location

Pokhara Youth Hostel is located in the Lakeside area of the city. The hostel is actually only about fifty metres from the lake itself, even if building sites do not only block access to the lake but obstruct the view over it as well. The street of the hostel is probably the busiest touristy area, so you will not have any problem finding restaurants, supermarkets, tour agencies, and souvenir shops around. There are also local buses passing through the street so it is quite a convenient location to base yourself in during your stay in Pokhara, even if it's probably not the most beautiful one.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel offers a huge number of dorms with different numbers of beds, with some divided according to genders and some mixed. However, most of them look exactly the same -- bunks crammed into a small place with no other furniture in the room. Under the bunks, there are spacious lockers that can fit an entire backpack and these are badly needed, as it is very easy for outsiders to stroll into the hostel unnoticed. Cleanliness is definitely not one of the highlights of this place and extra blankets were also not available at the time of review. However, there are three Wi-Fi networks, which are all relatively fast and reliable and the water in the shower is warm.

Common Spaces

At first impression, the hostel looks like a squat, with its hippie-style common areas, painted murals, and general chaotic and free-spirited atmosphere. In the kitchen, the staff cook breakfast for those who order it alongside those preparing their own meals, and trance music fills the space most of the time. While the hammocks are great and cosy and there are many spaces for socialisation, the only downside is that these are all outdoors and get really chilly in the late autumn and winter months.


At Pokhara Youth Hostel, you get what you pay for -- for the budget price, don't expect much more than a bed and a tiny space for yourself. However, the hostel is centrally located and it offers a kitchen and warm shower, so if you are only looking for a place to spend your nights in and are not too fussy about the place being clean and tidy, it might be an ok option to choose.
