The staff was very very helpful as people generally are in Nepal. Obviously it´s not a luxury hotel but the room we had was clean, with all the necessary facilities and I really can´t complain, also the food at the restaurant is amazing!! That was before the earthquake though :( but I understand they are still open and receiving guests.


I hate to leave a bad review but I also want to prepare anyone who plans on staying here. I have stayed all over Nepal: from teahouses to Nagarkot to Pokhara and beyond and of all the places, this was the most expensive and the most dirty. I got an ensuite room with two beds. The room was dark, dingy and wet...wet as in the air was just moist. The paint was peeling off the walls. Not a little but all over. The worst was the bathroom which was filled with black mold. Stay elsewhere. Sorry.


I was staying at this hotel during the horrible earthquake that just occurred and even though every single member of the staff lost their own homes they were at work doing everything they could to help all of the scared travelers. I have never seen such kindness and selflessness. Even before the quake I was raving about the helpfulness of staff, but after that experience I am just amazed.


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
