Reviewed January 21, 2014

Go and visit this place especially if you are interested in supporting a relatively new enterprise in organic farming and sustainable living. The Newari style house has a few rooms and there is a separate building with three bedrooms and self contained kitchen and bathroom that could be suited to small groups. I will definitely return!

My time at Gamcha Organic farm was great! Located perfectly outside of Kathmandu in beautiful surroundings, with great staff and exiting food! What thrilled me the most was the fact that MR. D (the manager) basically arranged my entire trip around Nepal for a fraction of what normal tourist agencies are demanding- it was a ridiculously low price he managed to get!! Looking forward to getting back this next summer to do some volunteer work at a nearby school :-)
I would definitely recommend this places to everybody!

We spent 4 nights at Gamcha Guest House. We enjoyed our stay and had the opportunity to meet other travelers. The rooms are basic, clean and it is very quiet and peaceful there. All the team at Gamcha were friendly and helpful. The meals are at a set price, which we were quoted before we arrived, and they are more than you would pay in Kathmandu. However, the food was great, special requests for food preferences were cheerfully prepared, and there was plenty to eat.
We were there in December and they had a heater in the dinning room and hot water bottles each evening to warm our beds. They have built a toilet and sink in the building with the rooms, so no need to walk to the bathhouse at night. There are nice walks from the guesthouse through the local villages with views of the Himalayas. Yes, the electricity is intermittent, but you are in Nepal where they have limited electricity.
If you are looking for a quiet peaceful location, and a change from Kathmandu, I would recommend a stay at Gamcha Guest House.

I thought we would really love this place. The farm and old buildings are beautiful. Rooms are okay. There was no hot water after being told there was. Transport costs were more than all the local quotes we were told double the price to get to Nargarkot, and the food prices were more than double all the other places we stayed in Nepal for the same price range. Not one piece of all the beautiful salad greens growing all around made an appearance in our meals. A few adjustments and this place could be amazing, but overall we felt let down. Organise all your own transport in advance so you don't have to rely on their service.

“Management responses”
Thank you for taking time to review our organic farm house. We truly appreciate the feedback (opinions) of our customers (Guests) and we would like apologize that we did not meet your expectations.
We have now solved the issue of not having continual hot water during winter time, with the repair of our gas water heater, this allows us to provide water all year and now. Our Transport fare is the same like other taxi fares, we encourage our guest to compare our fares with other taxi fares. Our food (vegetables) is primarily served from our own organic farm and local organic producer, Our Breakfast is a 3 course wholesome meal in itself and we believe that our meals are great quality and value in price. We serve a variety of food including a mixed green salad for lunch, freshly picked from our garden and serve different dishes on request.
If you come back to our Organic Farmhouse, you will find it better now and We are looking forward to seeing you here soon.

We stayed here for a weekend to get out of Kathmandu a bit. (Living in Thamel area for 5 months)
We came around 2000 in the evening when everything is dark and "quiet". The countryside is filled with crickets and owls welcoming us. We got greeted by the manager, a very attentive and nice nepali originally from the Chitwan area. Currently the place only has 3 bedrooms, though they plan to fix a few more for later. It is the perfect place to relax and let everything slide. The breakfast and the dinner was amazing, everything beeing made organically on the farm. The house was a 90years old, renovated old style. We loved our stay here and want to come back before we leave Nepal !

Room Tip: We stayed in room nr 1, slightly smaller than the others, but you have windows on two sides, waking...
