#45 of 373 Speciality lodging in Kathmandu
Yakety Yak Hostel is located in Thamel. The heart of hip and happening Kathmandu. It is a planned and purpose-built hostel and not some residential building converted to a hostel. Everything is within minutes, if not seconds of the hostel. The hostel compound itself is home to 3 restaurants, cafes, pubs and convenience store. Outside the hostel are scores of shops, travel agents, adventure specialists, cool clubs, music lounges - you name it. Since Yakety Yak Hostel is purpose built, we’ve spent a lot of time planning each area carefully. There are 5 spacious private rooms and 7 large dorms. A total of 72 beds. Segregated showers with running hot and cold water and WC areas, a huge lounge area, a sunny terrace and bar We also have a kitchen and luggage storage. We are located in the traffic allowed section of Thamel, so you can drive right up in your taxi. No need to haul your luggage for hundreds of meters!

This was possibly one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Comfy beds. Live sport. The owner is a liverpool fan so we had a good chat. The staff were incredible especially Binika she helped with my every need and was so nice

I found this hostel very cold, they keep the doors open always so you have to eat breakfast wrapped up in your coat and scarf! Doesn't make for a nice atmosphere in the social area. Staff are fine. Breakfast poor. Overall I wouldn't recommend it during winter.

Yakety Yak Hostel, Thamel, Kathmandu is excellent in every sense of the word. Starting from the time I booked to the time I checked out, everything was marvellous. Their approach is very easy and friendly. The owner, Mr. Girish Rajbhandhari is very professional and ensures that his guests always get the best. The ambience of the hostel is exemplary at the same time very carefree. The attitude, behavior, service and demeanor of all the staff are superb. Names of staff members like Anjila, Ashraya, Binika & Aleesha will always resonate in my mind for their remarkable service. In a nutshell, Yakety is super and I will recommend it to everybody travelling to Nepal. I look forward to staying at YY on my next visit.

Good location, near the ATM machines, must take stairs to reach the hostel. Good wifi, hot shower and water pressure. Counter lady was slightly stern. She knocked on our door around check out time to ask whether we wish to extend. The reminder could be put across in a nicer way. Breakfast was ok. Do request for rooms away from the check in counter especially when they throw activities like concerts or movie time, if you are a light sleeper or prefer quiet, stay away from room No 4 and 5.
