What makes this place great is really two things: 1) Ruth is a very warm and generous person. Made me feel at home...talked to me as if I was talking to my aunt. Talked to me every morning over breakfast and every night after I got back from exploring the city. Lent me an umbrella, spoon, hot tea, anything that... More

Ruth and Rajendra welcome you into their home. Simple, clean, spacious bedrooms, kitchen, and shared baths in the 3 floor house in a garden setting. The neighborhood is quiet and upscale with many nice restaurants in easy walking distance.

Out of way and off the main road so it is quiet. Good sized room with a decent shower. Staff were incredibly friendly and kind. Breakfast each morning with room. Dinner is available in the evenings. Close to Restaurant Row Road. Would stay there again

I was living in this guesthouse for more than two months. I would recommend the place to everyone who is looking for a longer stay in Kathmandu. Thamel is a great location for backpackers, but after a few days, the crowd of tourists and seller becomes very annoying. Patan is in the south of Kathmandu and most expats are staying... More

Hmm.. I was not really happy with the stay. The rooms were so hot you could not sleep at night, and there was not hot water. I stayed at the top room, it was awful. The location however is nice, but I will not recommend it at all. There are other places i would rather stay than dev.. Simply not... More

If one is looking for a tranquil, high-quality stay in Kathmandu, I humbly and whole-heartedly suggest Dev Guest House. Attached bathrooms, multiple kitchens, laundry service (included in price) very nice family/staff and included breakfast. The Thamel (tourist) area can become quite over-whelming after a night or two, so if you are staying in Kathmandu for longer than that you may... More

I have been at Dev Guesthouse for almost a month now and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. The owners Rajindre and Ruth are great! Ruth always prepares something different for breakfast and they really do all they can to make you feel at home. I especially love her Swiss bircher muesli with chocolate...yum! It's location is out of the... More

I am a swiss student and spent two and a half months in summer 2013 living in Dev Guesthouse, only 5 minutes from the organization I was doing an internship for. Dev Guesthouse is very close to many NGOs, international organizations, etc. However, that is by far not the only reason to stay there, it is also a great place... More

We have stayed in Dev Guest House for two months in June and July 2013 and it really became a home away from home during the time. The place is located in the Southern part of the city, Patan, which is less crowded. Dev Guest House is definitely a convenient location if you are staying in Nepal for most NGO-related... More
