I stayed in Hotel Bag packers Lodge for about 4 days; from 21st Jan to 25th Jan. I found that the staffs there were very friendly and polite. I am very happy and completely satisfied with the services that I had. The cook was awesome. We had delicious food with fresh brewed coffee. I had fun. The room was luxurious with Ac, TV and wifi facilities. Hotel Manager Krishna Dawadi helped me to arrange buses and taxies for travelling. That was very kind and sweet.

We stayed there for over a week, myself and my 3 teenage daughters. The manager Krishna was very helpful, loving and went beyond his way to make us happy. The rest of the staff was also wonderful and very respectful. The location is wonderful :close to everything you may need, attractions, restaurants, groceries, markets...The rooftop bar is very nice and cozy. The rooms are spacious, clean and warm when it's cold. I can't say enough good things about this place. Thank you so much Krishna! We will definitely be back to this place when we go back to Kathmandu! (from Eva, from Dec 2019)

I stayed at Bagpackers Lodge for three months June/September 2019. I have stayed at several hotels/hostels during four visits to Nepal totalling over ten months and consider it the best, in a highly competitive market, for a number of reasons :- 1. The staff The proprietor Krishna, his wife, and staff are such genuinely friendly, helpful, and courteous people ready to assist at every opportunity. 2. The facilities Clean, well-maintained, spacious rooms, some with en-suite bathrooms, upgraded since my last visit. Hot water always available. Rooftop restaurant with extensive menu or room service if required. Good, if somewhat basic breakfast options available. Reasonably good Internet/Wifi connections for television/phone/tablets. Good fast, efficient and cheap laundry service. Air/ bus/taxi ticket bookings/Airport service and just about anything else you may need assistance with ! 3. Location Location, location in the heart of Thamel. Restaurants, bars, cafes, trekking and souvenir shops within 50 metre radius. In summary, a great place to stay in Kathmandu ! My name is Les and I approve this message. 🙂

An excellent place that is great value for money right in the heart of touristy Thamel. Krishna, his wife, and rest of the team are super friendly and welcoming. All the rooms are bright and clean; the hot water and showers are excellent and reliable; the Wi-fi is strong and there is a great rooftop terrace ideal for breakfast. I have been to Nepal many times and can honestly say this is one of the best places I have stayed in. Highly recommended.
