The staff is very helpfull, and this hotel is great value for money. Will go there again without second thinking!
Great location and a very clean and pleasant place to stay right next to Thamel. The roof top terrace is good as well. Thanks!
They were so accommodating. I got here early & they let me stay in a double room with ensuite at no extra charge. Helpful, friendly in every way!
The pictures on the website didn't give an accurate description of the place we stayed in. The place we stayed in was awful. INCREDIBLY noisy both inside and out the building all night. Disfuctional toilet which leaked all over the floor. Dirty carpets and faulty plugs and power supply. No working wifi as advertised and no roof terrace as seen in the pictures. We were very dissapointed. All I can commend is the lovely staff. They were all very friendly, incredibly helpful and well organised.

The place is clean and has everything you need. Salut is very helpful with organising transport and treks. Location is very close to Thamel.
We stayed in the new building for two nights. If you're looking for a place to sleep with good value for money, a great location and clean and spacy rooms with amazing beds (really the best beds we had in Nepal, wow). This is the place you should go to! The included breakfast was nice and a big plus! Staff is friendly and helpful. We recommend this one.
From start to finish an awesome place to stay in Kathmandu!!! Very helpful staff, delicious breakfast & comfortable clean rooms. Very impressed with the Avalon house. Kieron.

This place has everything you need. Clean facilities, close to Thamel and friendly staff. Saput (hotel manager) was easily able to assist with tours and transport around Nepal.
What a fantastic guesthouse!! The rooms are clean, there is a great rooftop to get a panarama of Kathmandu, and a nice breakfast. The best part of the guesthouse is the friendly and helpful staff (even through our endless questions). We came back to Avalon three times during our six week stay in Nepal and each time were greeted with the same warm, welcoming smile.
Siput and his team excellent people, very friendly and kind, the hotel very good and comfortable, the breakfast very good.
Booked up 2 nights as we had just finished a 3 week long tour on India and Nepal. Best beds we had slept in the whole time.! The staff were so kind and friendly. We made sure to stay a couple more nights ! Brilliant absolutely loved it here !
One of the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Incredibly value for money.
The hostel is very good, I liked everything on it except that the water was cold :( and I needed to take a shower in hot water. In addition they need to provide tissues in the bathroom. Supit was a great help and nice friendly person but I think his charges is a bit expensive comparing to other places. I would love to visit Kathmandu again and I recommend the hostel as it is really nice!
I loved my stay at Avalon House! This is an excellent hostel. Nice view from the top terrace over the surrounding neighborhoods of Katmandu. The facilities are great, the hostel is clean, good breakfast and the staff - very helpful and friendly. I would certainly stay there again.
Very clean, great staff, and super comfortable bed/pillows. The breakfast was awesome as well! More of a bed and breakfast than a hostel, we had a very comfortable stay.
I spent a week at Avalon House and had a lovely stay there. For accommodation in this price range I would definitely recommend this; the owners are very friendly and helpful, keen to guide me in the best directions to experience the wonderful Nepalese traditions and culture, and were happy to teach me about Nepal and it's current situation whenever I was picking their brains on it. It's located on a small (quieter) back street on the northern edge of Thamel.
Location of hostel is literally a stone throw away from Thamel, the busiest street in Kathmandu where you can get all the equipment needed for your hike, it is also a short 20 minutes walk away from gangabu bus park. The hostel has pretty basic facilities but all in all, it has pretty much most things that one would need, though there are no air conditioning and some rooms do not have fans, but the chilly night wind makes up for it!

Hotel great with a nice view over the surrounding neighborhoods of Katmandu. Good location juuuust outside of Thamel, but a 2 minute walk puts you right there. The is great and very accommodating. The hotel has no earthquake damage at all, and neither does the surrounding area. Very comfortable, would recommend!
