A very good hostel in a central area of Thamel.


A nice place and centrally located in the heart of Kathmandu. I was very happy to stayed there over night. i had a good sleep. The hotel staffs were really nice and friendly. Coffee in roof top with great view of Kathmandu was outstanding. Will be back soon.


Very friendly and hospitable staff.Central location for good shopping and numerous restaurents.Great value


Right in the centre of thamel but not noisy or congested.Hotel style room with aircon and fan, clean and friendly staff great value for money. highly recommended


The hotel was great with outstanding facilities. All the staffs were really nice and helpful. The hotel was in the center of Kathmandu which is not far from other different many important places. The services provided in the hotel was great and remarkable. One more thing i would like to add is the owner was really nice. Highly recommend.


Stayed at Trekkers' Home in March and can say that the staff are amazing. They provide a variety of services including booking trips which I recommend taking advantage of. The accommodation although average is very cheap and perfect for budget travelers. Everyone that I traveled with enjoyed staying here and would stay here again if they traveled back to Nepal. would Definately back again

The shower water was with strong rusty smell and the whole room was very humid.


I chose Trekkers Home based on the positive reviews left on the site. reception staff very friendly and helpful. Dip (manager) is very professional and honest in all the dealings I had with him. I booked a 4-day trekking with guide, a half day rafting session and a 1-day visit to Kathmandu. This is a backpackers place so some rooms may need a coat of paint but overall the rooms are nice and clean. No need to get into a hardcore bargaining session with Dip he always gave me the best price.

Dip from the travel desk is a great guy, loves his job and because of his experience in the mountains he has a great network of people. We've booked our trekking with this desk and paragliding. The last part was cancelled because of monsoon and we got all the money back. Even in dollars because we were leaving Nepal and didn't want to exchange the money. Room was nice and clean, big bathroom and staff friendly and helpful. Middle of touristic Katmandu, close to good restaurants.

Very Hard Bed, and I know this is Nepal. Almost no Water in the Sink and under the shower. Heavy smell of cooked food from the restaurant next to the hostel.


The beds were a little hard and the shower was a little primitive but everything else was awesome.
