Nice location just outside of Thamel. The owner Khem is amazing and always makes you feel at home. He's awesome to chat to and can help organise anything!

This Hotel was a great little gem just a 5 minute walk outside the hectic streets of Thamel. Breakfast was great, and the beds and blankets were great after some of the other places we've stayed. The hotel manager was very considerate of our needs and helped with everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again!

If you come to kathmandu, Elbrus is a great placebo stay. The staff go out of their way to help you and are very welcoming. the rooms are clean, the coffee is delicious, and it's only a couple of minutes walk into the main area of Thamel. We had help finding a tailor (according to our budget), directions to sites around the city, and they also booked buses and tours for us. Hands down the place to stay in Kathmandu.

We found this place online at a good value and with great reviews and have not been disappointed. Rooms are neat and clean, beds are good, and shower has lots of hot water! Breakfast is really nice and there's plenty of it - plus you can eat it in their beautiful garden. Location in outer Thamel means it nicely quiet at night, and the owner will help you any way he can. We fully enjoyed our stay and would gladly recommend it!

Charismatic owner who was very helpful. Clean rooms, but more pricey than other budget places to stay in KTM but the rooms are better! Plus you get an amazing free breakfast for free. Great place to recover from a trek or goto before setting off!

We enjoyed our stay at Elbrus a lot. Khem, the funny owner who speaks also german a little bit, gave us a heartly welcome. He also arranges city trips and trips to Nagarkot and Bakthapur. I recommend an airport pick up because it is not easy to find (almost the same price as a taxi and hassle free). He also helps you with questions. It is not directly in Thamel but just 3 mins away by walking. With the nice Garden and free coffee+water it was a small oasis in the noisy and chaotic Kathmandu.

Fantastic location just a short walk from Thamel. Great, cozy beds. Warm showers. Helpful staff. Full breakfast with eggs, porridge, and tea/coffee. Friendly fluffy white dog. Internet connection was fair but not amazing, though it did connect in the rooms. Would have liked a posted schedule for electricity outages. Otherwise we really loved our stay, price was great, and we'd come back again!

Staff at elbrus are so warm and friendly, go out of their way to make you feel welcome. As a solo woman travelling Nepal this was a great first place to stay - I felt so incredibly safe the entire time!

Elbrus is a very nice guesthouse which is clean and in a good location near to thamel but away from the noise. However I felt that the owner would try to encourage me to take the most expensive option for transport etc. If I didnt want the expensive 1 and asked about a cheaper option he would try to give reasons why I shouldnt take the cheaper option and sometimes he wouldnt tell me the cheapest option. He also added on commission without telling me how much it was or that he was adding it on.

khem is the man right from a very early morning airport pickup and arranging bus tickets and tour information for guests. close enough to easily visit thamel and return within a few minutes. the free coffee and tea all day and the free breakfast is a nice bonus. so far i have stayed here twice and i intend to stay again and again!!!!

Khem was such a great help in organising a trek for us to base camp with a fantastic guide Gambu and for a reasonable price! Free breakfast, free filtered water and hot showers were all additions that made our stay easy and comfortable! Would definitely come back :)

Elbrus Home is a welcoming and friendly hostel in the middle of a slightly chaotic town. Khem the owner takes great care of his guests and makes sure your stay is comfortable. We were impressed by the little things he took care of to make our stay pleasant- tea on arrival, hot breakfast, organising transport etc. Elbrus Home has a lovely chilled out vibe and even a resident hostel-dog who is a real sweetie.

Nice ambience and garden, 24h hot shower + wifi and especially very good mattresses. Extensive breakfast included. Although maybe a bit more expensive than the cheapest hostels, it is definitely worth the money.

当日空港からピックアップをお願いしたらすぐに対応してもらえました。 トラベルデスクもあるので、ツアーの予約もできます。 朝食はオーダーをとって暖かいものを作ってくれます。 なにより庭がすてきです。 またカトマンズに行ったら泊まりたいです。

Wonderful staff and great location, 5 minute walk to Thamel but hidden away from all the noise and street pollution. I've stayed here 3 times throughout my month long trip in Nepal and they are always very welcoming and accommodating. Khem was great when it came to booking bus tickets and would personally walk me to the bus station. Breakfast is awesome and wifi is secure. I definitely recommend this home away from home :)

Good security and warm staff, but low facilities especially they need to improve the bath room.

Really friendly staff, they help with every need or request. Masala tea on arrival and great hot showers and wifi. Location isn't in the middle of the city but a quick 10 minute walk does the trick. Would stay again!

Great place. Stayed in ensuite room. No heating though in the room, so the temp in the room went down near 5 C.
