“very good deal for Thamel”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

the place is a very good deal for Thamel and Kathmandu, in a good location with lovely staff. It's a budget guest house with the basic services. When I was there they where doing a lot of renovations so soon it will get even better. just one tip: If you don't want a noisy room (very difficult to find in Thamel) just ask to have one in the upper floors.

Room Tip: just ask for the upper floors rooms less noisy and more cosy

I spent a week at Trekkers home. I had booked only for two days initially. But, after I arrived here, I extended the stay to a whole week as I had a thoroughly good time here.

The rooms are very basic and simple but clean at the same time. It is small but comes with all facilities like tv, balcony, bathroom, and a comfortable bed. While in Kathmandu, chances are that you won't spend all your time within the room. So, to just spend your evenings and have a good place to crash, this might be a great fit. If you're more of a tourist and less of a traveler, maybe not a great place.

Also, if you want to plan your trip on the go, the travel agency within the hotel might be of great help. They charged no commission and helped me ideate together. The staff is very friendly and I felt like family at the end of the trip.

All in all, a great place to relax and stay!

Room Tip: Might help to take a slightly larger room if you d not wan to be claustrophobic though all rooms are...

Stayed in this place before I went on a trek and decided to come back afterwards. The rooms are spacious and beds are clean, there's a 24 hour hot shower (and a nice shower too), wifi works well even when there's a power outage and - most of all - the owner and staff are really friendly and are willing to help you out on various occasions, such as changing to a nicer room as well as trekking permits and that kind of stuff. Location is good as well (but that goes for almost every place in Thamel, there are plenty of restaurants and outdoor shops on your doorstep. I would definitely recommend this place; we booked in advance and everything turned out great.

Just read the below review and think it is a bit unfair. The staff at Trekkers Home are amazing, friendly, honest and always willing to help. I asked the manager (Dep) to help me organise transport to cross the Indian border and was told he would rather not as it is very dodgy business. He warned me to be very careful and to perhaps fly across instead. I saw him give this useful information to another group of tourists as well. It is a well known fact that there is unavoidable corruption at the border and that most companies on the Nepal side will overcharge you for the ticket. This is NO fault of Trekkers Home, it is the fault of Sri Sai.

I came to Trekkers home with hopes of finding a good deal on a trek, and was not disappointed! I was given a very good deal and well taken care of during my Trek (Poon Hill). It was an amazing trek with great food and good accommodation. The manager also provided me with a few things i needed for the trek, free of charge.
I came back with an injury and was very well taken care of by hotel staff, even moved to a room on a lower level to avoid the stairs! I highly recommend this place. For accommodation and for trekking! Thank you!
