The Hotel Friends Home was a great base for my two stays in Kathmandu -- before and after trekking. The rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. All the members of the staff took great care to ensure that my visit was the most it could be. My only complaint would be that the area where the hotel is located, while extremely convenient and central, is not at all tranquil nor peaceful. Several buildings nearby are under construction and given the location in central Thamel, there are really only a few hours every night that are very quiet (roughly 12am-5am). The hotel manager told me that they're in the process of soundproofing the rooms and adding additional internal doors to control the noise so that should help a lot. I'd also say that while prices are generally fair, travelers wishing to save money could stay a little farther outside the core of Thamel or elect to forgo a private bathroom and cut their lodging bill significantly. That said, I would not hesitate to stay here again -- the helpful staff and comfortable rooms make this an easy choice.
