I highly recommed Elbrus to everyone, who is looking for a place to stay in Kathmandu. It is definitely better and more relaxed than some more expensive hostels in Thamel.
Khem is an amazing host, always making sure all the guests are happy. The rooms are clean, bright, with fan, attached bathroom with hot shower, sink and toilet paper. Drinking water is supplied in tanks just in the corridor, so you can always fill in your water bottle. The choice of breakfast is really wide and everything tastes delicious (eggs any way you want, porridge, toast with butter, honey, jam, fresh juice, tea, coffee, bananas). The little garden is very colourful and simply lovely to sit around. Very comfortable sitting room is equipped with a huge selection of books in many languages, computer and very fast wi-fi (working even when there's a power cut in the city). You can also arrange laundry, free pick up from the airport, many tours and attractions as well as luggage storage when you're going away for few days. The place is always busy with nice travellers you can have a great chat with.
Kham has also recommended us a place to stay run by his family in Pokhara - Annapurna Guest House. It was equally great!
We will definitely be back!
