Great hostel, awesome staff, super comfortable beds and great breakfast. Solar panels mean you get hot showers and consistent power which is a big pro!

Fantastic stay at Elbrus home, Khem and the team were so kind and helpful sorting anything we needed with no hassle! Khem booked our bus to pokhara too and even walked us to the bus station. You always felt safe here, the breakfast was amazing and perfect for setting you up for the day! Great location just outside the hustle of Thamel so quieter at nighttime! For 10 dollars he will also pick you up from the airport which is great peace of mind when you are tired! Recommend anyday!

Wonderful hostel, staff are great, facilities great, off season so not a big atmosphere (peak season would be incredible), but a seriously great place to stay after a long trek, definitely sleep here if you can!

Great, helpful staff. Everyone was very friendly, breakfast was great and filling, and rooms were clean and well-maintained. The patios were great for a space to enjoy the sun and socialize.

We loved staying at Elbrus. Kham was very welcoming and trusting. Helped us transition into Kathmandu very well. Rooms are basic but breakfast is delicious!! You are paying for what you get. Will definitely stay again if we go back there.

The host Kheem was very polite and professional. Checkin was smooth and the room was a good size. I took the best shower in Nepal here - hot water is always available. The laundry service is prompt and the location is great within Thamel. I would definitely stay here again.

From the moment I arrived at the airport the staff at this hostel were nothing but welcoming ! I was upgraded from a single room with shared bathroom to a room with a private bathroom for no extra charge which was wonderful! I lost my luggage on the way over and khem and his staff helped greatly in getting it back ! Breakfast was delicious and they are always trying to help out where ever they can ! Endless supply of tea and drinking water made it homely! Nice garden and rooftop, Will be back!

A well run hostel, funny and friendly staff. Have answers to all possible questions. Stayed here for a week, was incredibly comfortable and just a lovely, chilled base to have in Kathmandu.

Not only are the people, grounds, facilities, atmosphere, breakfast and location amazing but the Elbrus home is what I consider to be the perfect combination of Nepali hospitality and charm under one roof. There are no other choices in Kathmandu, only Elbrus.

Khem was a great host that couldn't do enough to make our stay pleasurable. An amazing breakfast every morning (even before a very early flight) and even walked us to the bus when commuting to Pokhara. Highly recommend.

This place is incredibly clean and comfortable. The owner is friendly and knowledgable and he makes a great breakfast in the morning. It can be nice for meeting people too as there are common areas.

lovely hostel . Perfect location and in a calm and peaceful setting away from the hustle of the city. Breakfast was great and was great to have constant filtered water at reception. It was also good to have an airport transfer with the staff when coming into Kathmandu solo off a late flight. Would definitely come back!Staff are very helpful and friendly.

Breakfast was excellent - juice, tea/coffee, eggs, toast and porridge/bananas. I stayed in a single room, very comfortable bed but no locker or safety box. Staff were always present and happy to help. Laundry service was quick and cheap. The garden is a nice open, communal space and the resident dog is well behaved and always happy to be patted. The hostel is a 5 minute walk to Thamel, where you can find anything you might need.

Elbrus Home is a must for any traveller in KTM, just 5m from the heart of busy Thamel, this peaceful and beautiful hostel is in perfect location. The staff Khem and Ali make you feel very welcome. The rooms are clean, private, very comfortable beds and 24/7 hot water. Free breakfast in the lovely garden is delicious - porridge, eggs, toast, coffee,tea, juice - yum. The rooftop terrace will win your heart - gorgeous, sunny views of the surrounding hills and colourful town. Definitely coming back!
