Very close to freak street and close to the taxi stop, even if the city center is easily reacheable by walk. I just spent 1 night here but I found it clean, nice and comfortable. Friendly and nice staff

I stayed there more than 2 months and shared the amazing culture of Nepal with a nepali family. Mohan, Shanti and Monish will welcome you with pleasure and tell you all about how to organise your trips around the country. Downstairs in the living room it's easy to meet other travellers ! Nice rooftop for breakfast in the sun with...

We asked for a three person room and the owner promised us an extra mattress in a double room. When we decided to stay she wanted us to move the beds together and sleep in two beds with the three of us. The entire place, even the bathroom smelled like the dirty little dog they had walking around. The location...

We absolutely loved this guest house. With just twelve rooms and housing the owner, his family, and their nice dog, it often feels more like a home. Rather than an impersonal lobby there's a wonderful living room on the main level, filled with family mementos and religious artifacts. On the stairway landings are book cases filled with books. A nice,...

Location very close to Durbar Square, making it central for sightseeing but noisy at night. Family run, who were helpful and friendly. Rooms a little dingy and tatty. 1200 rupees for room with bathroom, 800 rupees without.

The location in Dhurbar Square is in the heart of Kathmandu in the most historic area. Your every need will be taken care of. The food on their roof top Resturant is very good with a beautiful view if the surrounding area and Swayambhu Nath.

The place was ok for a two-night staying, althought it was January and the room was cold. Only heating we had when we asked, was two hot water bottles. When we were checking out, we were told that using the bottles costed 20 rupies/bottle/night. That wasn't too much - less than one euro altogether - but I think that heating...

We were perhaps slightly surprised at the price (600 rupees for a twin room with shared bathroom) but in the end we absolutely loved this place. Freak Street is a really nice area - a minute's walk from Durbar Square and much quieter, cheaper and less stressful than Thamel. Be prepared to walk up many stairs - our room was...

“The rooms closer to roof seem newer than the others, and often have a TV with no extra charge, but anyone renting on of these should be prepared to climb a number of long flights of stairs.”
