Was lucky to stay in Kiwi backpackers Pokhara, all the community that works there is very helpful, friendly, warm... Hot showers, delicious breakfast... 100//👌👌👌 It’s location is super close to Lake Side, restaurants and tourist life There I’ve met other backpackers and we suddenly plan a trekking to the mountains, you can meet people of all ages. Liked that Kiwi Hostel has a place where you can donate stuff for other trekkers that will go climb the hills.... helpful when I needed Thank you all the family of Kiwi Hostel, see you in a soon future🌟🙏

Best hostel in Pokhara! Spent 10 nights here and wish I was able to stay longer. Super friendly and helpful staff. Maya was able to provide great info and accommodate every need at the front desk. Great common areas on ground level and especially on rooftop with the bar for meeting other backpackers. Kept cozy each night with a fire and A+ service from the bartender, Seema! Free breakfast and coffee every am. Beds were very comfortable and rooms kept very clean. I left for some trekking in the middle of my stay and utilized their camera monitored locker storage space for some belongings. I could go on and on... Thankful for my stay and meeting such great people including staff! Wish you all the best. Until next time...Raine

Stayed at Kiwi for a few weeks. Wonderful place to stay in Pokhara. The staff is very courteous and always ready to help you. Perfect hostel to meet people and organise stuff to do around. Breakfasts are delicious. Rooms and toilets are clean. There's a lounge room, study room, rooftop bar. The view is amazing. The manager is very honest and do his best to give you the informations needed for trekking and visiting. This is not a place for party and its something nice about it, there's so many bar to go around so it's quiet at night at the hostel.
