We stayed there on our first night in Nepal. Kathmandu is a huge and noisy city. Even though the Yellow House is located in the Thamel, it is very quiet and we cannot hear much noise from there and the atmosphere is very peaceful. The stuff is friendly and there is good food and free wifi. The bedroom are spacious... More

A couple of minutes walking away from Thamel's hussle and busstle, is the wonderful quiet and relaxed Yellow House. Run by the most friendly people, employing fantastic staff and offering clean and spacious rooms, it's an absolute topper in KTM! We loved staying here and will certainly return!

Stayed here for 2 nights a couple of days ago. The rooms are tidy and comfortable though since rooms don't have fans, some of the smaller rooms might get a bit stuffy and you will need to put the split a/c on. The staff is friendly and very helpful, especially the night watchman who went out of his way to... More

We spent two days at this propriety. The room was clean, good AC, breakfast was a la carte pretty decent. The bed was hard for our standards, staff friendly. Good free wifi. Not great value for the money I would say. We added 15% more and stayed the 3 days left at a 4* hotel. But if you need a... More

We stayed here twice in one week at the beginning & end of a tour. It’s a good budget choice away from the hassle of Thamel set in a suburb of Kathmandu. It has a reception building and car-park with an apartment block behind in a pleasant garden. We found all the staff very helpful and accommodating – the concierge... More

If you want to stay in Thamel, but have somewhere at the end of the day to retreat to recover from the madness then this is the place for you. Sure you can still hear the endless car horns, but once you turn the corner onto this road you are in a quiet oasis. The rooms are nicely presented and... More

It is now the 3rd time for me to come to Nepal and I always choose The Yellow House as my "Base Camp" in Kathmandu. The Rooms are good, comfortable for backpackers and have good size for staying also longer than just one night. The staff is very helpful and always friendly. Also the owners look that you feel at...

We really liked the place where the Yellow House is situated. It's in a small side lane just 5 minuetes from the tourist hotspots in Thamel. The rooms a clean but a bit old. However, it's good enough if you just spent a few days in Kathmandu. The owners and the staff is also friendly and helpful. If you plan... More
