This is the place to stay if your backpacking in Nepal, are on a tight budget or just want somewhere nice to stay. Showers are hot, rooms are clean and the staff is adorable! The hostel is located in north Thamel, a nice spot since you are in short walking distance from the heart of Thamel, but still away from... More

A lot of the accommodation is pretty standard in Thamel in terms of facilities. Elbrus isn't exceptional in this regard. However, the host is extremely hel coming friendly and helpful. Also, unlike a lot of things in Nepal, everything is included in the price of your room (breakfast, water bottle refills, I even got a free beer!), so in that... More

Stayed here a night before starting an escorted tour in Kathmandu. Went to the hotel vagra after and it wasn't as nice as this place. We had a few days in Kathmandu and even after only staying one night before the boss remembered me. The rooms were great, the showers were hot, the included breakfast was huge and the place... More

Booked for two nights after returning from the Everest Base Camp trek and was amazed at Elbrus Home. Arrived early in the morning after a helicopter ride from Lukla, and getting a free breakfast was no problem before checking in! It's a five minute walk to Thamel shops, very cheap but tidy place and the free wifi, breakfast, and drinking... More

The showers were as warm as the welcome, this place was so so much better than another highly rated hotel and cheaper. Warm showers, clean rooms and balcony views. Great in the sun and the breakfast was greatly appreciated. It has a great garden you can relax in which allows you to escape the busy day to day of Kathmandu's.... More

This was the first time staying here as thought I needed a change from where I normally stay and I'm pleased to say it was great. Position good, an easy walk into Thamel, very friendly and helpful staff (Khem & Ali) who go out of their way to accommodate any problems you might have, good breakfast, soft beds and balconies...

We had a great stay at this guesthouse: the rooms were clean, wifi working and the breakfasts were great. The guesthouse had a cool roof terrace to see the sun go down and mineral water on demand. The guesthouse is slightly outside the main touristy part of Thamel, but this was no bad thing for us as it was all... More

Everything in this place is nice. Room was clean and comfortable (but all rooms are not the same, check before) The staff is helpful and the manager Khem and his brother are always smiling and ready to answer to your questions. Their little dog Footsie is funny too :) The garden where you can take the breakfast is perfect, as... More

This hotel excels at the old fashioned service where the guest comes first. The breakfast sets you up for the day and is cooked to order. Khem the manager is a mine of information and will help steer you to the best deals but only at your request. This will always be my first choice in Kathmandu.

We spent a total of 9 nights at Elbrus Home and we were very very happy with our stay. The room was clean and spacious, the beds were soft (by Nepali standards) and the breakfast was fantastic (coffee, tea, juice, porridge, fruit, toast and 2 eggs cooked however you want them). Khem and his staff go out of their way... More
