Very good backpacker guest house. Stayed a couple times during our visit in Nepal. Good roof top area. Staff was very helpful and kind. Had a couple of roaches, but no big deal for Kathmandu's cleanliness. Picked up from airport on time and easily. Guest house in convenient location.

This is one of the best place to stay in Thamel if you like a place away from honking noise. There is a nice rooftop garden cafe/view. Clean room with basic amenities just a short walk to the happening area of Thamel. Very helpful and friendly staffs. Stayed there for a 5 nights in Mac 2012, will consider to stay... More

I stayed here 3 times during September. The staff were friendly enough and the roof top was a great place to have breakfast. Location in Thamel is not too bad either - on a side street and not too noisy. The room quality however varied - in my last stay there were cockroaches in my room. The biggest advantage of... More

During our month travel in Nepal we returned 3 times to Kathmandu, also trying other Guesthouses we always came back to Annapurna Guesthouse as it was the best of all we tried. It has a beautiful roof terrace which makes you feel like sitting in your garden. The owner family is very friendly and always there for you. Rooms are... More

We booked via email. I've learned now that it's better not to and check the rooms when you're there. Airport pickup was convenient, that's why we chose AGH. The room was horrible, dirty beds and bathroom. There was à window between our bathroom and the one next to it and people came watching while we were taking a shower! It... More

HOW did I survive five days here?!?!?! You could probably get an eye infection from just looking at the carpet in this place. The rooms are dirty on a whole new level and I can’t even talk about the bathroom: the memories are too painful. The electricity was out for at least ten hours a day which means there’s no... More

I’ve chosen A.G.H. because of all good reviews and unfortunately for me it wasn’t so great. I’ve got in touch over email before my arrival with Manjit (managing director) regarding airport pick up. I’ve been informed that since I've booked two nights, they would provide free airport pick up. I’ve replied with my flight details. When arriving to the airport... More

Annapurna Guest House is the best location in Thamel. I found it is peace location, nice rooms as our demand, cheap price and friendly people around there. Anyone can try once if looking cheap and peace place in Thamel, Kathmandu.

A peaceful, unassuming guest house, near Thamel but off the main street. A great place to base yourself to explore more than just the backpacker scene. One guidebook described the place as dour, but it's not- humble, yes, but not dour. I was very happy here :)
