In 2014, the first time I stayed at PGH, what first struck me was the delicate beauty of the place. The thin, three-story hostel rises up from the back of a brick patio restaurant that stretches out to the street--and Tibetan magic oozes through every detail: wrought iron furnishings, icicle-lighting-lit trees, a low trickling Buddha fountain, lit chiminea fire. the price was right, so why look any further? Back then I was just beginning an expedition of my own--all across Southeast Asia. And having just recently returned to Kathmandu for the first time in nearly five years, I must say that after having traveled across the globe for my work, Pilgrim's Guest House is the most welcoming, kindhearted, best-valued establishment I have ever had the joy and privilege to be able to visit on multiple occasions. This is due to the trickle-down effect that flows from its owner, Gunja, who may be the kindest and most hardworking person I have ever met in my life. His attention to detail, unflagging desire to serve others, the conscientiousness and care that permeates everything he does--it is astounding, and an inspiration. I truly feel honored to have been able to spend time at Pilgrim's Guest House, and I could not recommend it highly enough. Stay here, it is an opportunity not to be missed in Kathmandu. The ambiance and hospitality make you feel like you're staying in a temple, but the service and amenities provide anything a backpacker might desire. What more could a person ask for?

Pilgrims Guesthouse is the perfect choice if you want to stay in Kathmandu. Central but quiet location in Thamel, large and clean rooms with much sunlight, half-shaded outside area to relax and have some good food. But what I love most about this place is the 100% welcoming, friendly and always helping staff. They are amazing, just awesome!! Pilgrims is more than "only" a guesthouse.
