Elbrus Home is a great accomodation for Kathmandu! It is in a really good location, just a quick walk to Thamel, but not in middle of the hustle and bustle. The staff are all really friendly and helpful. They provide a big, delicious breakfast that is included with the room, and they are always offering free teas throughout the day. The rooms are spacious and clean, and there is a really nice garden area and roof top terraces. I would highly recommend this accomadation.

Great little place. Lovely little seating areas to relax. Breakfast was really nice with lots of choice. They picked me up from the airport, and dropped me back too. They also arranged a mountain flight to Everest for me, which was amazing. There are lots of power cuts in Kathmandu, they have a generator so when the power if off you still have a light that works in your room (and the wifi!) :)

The staff are extremely responsive to any needs one has. Free unlimited tea and coffee is a fantastic feature, paired with their lovely front garden. The breakfast is proper. A great hostel for adult travelers.

We stayed at Elbrus Home twice on separate occasions either side of a trek in Pokhara. The reason we booked again is because Khem and Ali are the most inviting hosts ever. Elbrus home is run like a hotel should be. The service couldn't be better. They can't do enough for you. We will definitely be back to stay again. Ask for the top floor room - the view of the city is amazing! Thanks Khem and Ali, you made our trip in Kathmandu superb! Max and Gemma

The "Elbrus" brothers were amazing and super helpful in planning our visits around Kathmandu. Free breakfast, and coffee and tea whenever you want. Bingo, the dog, is super adorable! Close walk to town, but at night, there's not much street light. There's also power shortage in general, so certain hours of the day will not have power for charging.

We stayed for 3 nights. Quiet location, still only some 300m away from the main streets in Thamel. Very clean, helpful hostel owner. We could also leave part of our luggage there while we went trekking for a week.

Really comfortable hostel with a nice garden and terraces which are a welcome resting point in Kathmandu. Staff were always very friendly. Khem helped us out alot. Airport collection and onward bus tickets were a really great help! Plus the 2 were very entertaining.

We ended up staying here about 7nights and had a great stay! The owner was very helpful with booking our tours and everest hike. The free breakfast in the morning is excellent. Over all very easy to meet people as there is a nice garden and a relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely stay again!

Great stay at Elbrus. Khem and his brother makes you feel right at home. Great breakfast offered everyday. 5-minute walk to Thamel. Would recommend to anyone.

We had perfect stay in Elbrus Home! Khem, the owner, is super nice and helped us to organize everything. Free breakfast in relaxing gardens is the best one can get and the location is perfect, only 5min walk away from chaotic Thamel. I can recommend this place to everyone! We ended up staying in Elbrus Home for 8nights.

Great place. Oasis in kathmandu

This hostel has a lovely garden area and staff were pleasant. However our room was dirty and the bathroom truly revolting. It hadn't even been attempted to wipe it over. Hair, dirt and mould everywhere. The shower was really poor. The toilet leaked. The linen obviously dirty. And at 20 USD a night it was hugely overpriced (something I didn't know at the time being my first time) I since found gorgeous clean rooms elsewhere for as little as 6 USD a night. I was very unhappy Elbrus. Never again.

We had a great stay at Elbrus. It is a warm and friendly hostel with lots of facilities and organised tours available. It is only ahort walk from the very centre of town. The staff are very welcoming and we felt very safe there. All in all, a great stay.

Lovely hostel. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. They let us check out a day early without any charge, and saved a room for us after our trek. The free breakfast is awesome!

The only surprise about this place is that some people have given it less than 100% . Khem goes that extra mile in all situations putting people in touch with value for money treks is one example there are many more

It's an amazing place to stay in Kathmandu. It's very relax and quiet. They have this excellent garden to have breakfast. By the way, the breakfast is very good. The hostel is in the middle of Thamel, very close to every thing you need. People are great. Very recommended!!

Great staff, very helpful and super accommodating. Airport pick up was nice. Let us store gear while off trekking for 2 weeks and even did our stinky hiking laundry when we got back! Awesome big breakfasts, they even got up at 0500h to make it for us before we flew out. Fresh drinking water on every floor and friendly live in dog :) Thanks Elbrus!
