Location, staff, breakfast
If it weren't for the dirty sheets and towels I'd say this hotel is very good. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was pretty decent but there's no excuse for towels that didn't look like they had been washed. However, I'm into my second week in Nepal I'm beginning to notice the same in other hotels and after having had my laundry come back smelling anything but fresh I'm beginning to wonder about the washing methods. It doesn't appear that much detergent is used and certainly no bleach. Not good for a hotel if the towels "were" white. The free yoga was a noce touch even if we didn't take advantage of it. All in all it was good for a short stay.

Hidden Gem -- cozy friendly guesthouse in Thamel!
I stayed at Hotel Himalaya Yoga in Thamel, Kathmandu for more than a week. Initially, I only booked for 2 nights. I came here because of a positive review from a Kathmandu Guide book. I extended my stay after the first 2 nights. I've been staying in this hotel for a week already. Will stay for a few more days before I head to India. These are the good things about this hotel: 1) the hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating. I had back problem. After my first night, I requested a better mattress. The hotel gladly gave me an almost new mattress. I was grateful. 2) WIFI is just important for downloading useful apps for traveling, like maps. Also great for booking air tickets and hotels, finding out tourist attractions etc. Their WIFI speed is 3 Mbits (most hotels are less than 1.5 Mbits in Thamel. I tested a few of them including restaurants). 3) Power outage in Nepal (locally, they call it "loading shedding) is common. No power means no electricity and no water (they need electricity to pump the water). At Hotel Himalaya Yoga, I never need to worry about the loading shedding schedule. I was able to take hot showers whenever I want. I could always charge up my phone and ipad anytime. I was free at this hotel! By the way, I stayed at two other places before coming to Hotel Himalaya Yoga. So I had experienced how inconvenient it was without hot water (or simply just water to flush the toilet) and electricity to charge devices). 4) Free yoga classes in the morning. 5) Great FREE big breakfast in the morning. I was shocked to receive the huge breakfast on my first morning. When I asked for an omelette, the chef honored my request agreeably! 6) The hotel keeps the toilet and common areas clean. 7) The hotel is very central, next to the Hot Breads Bakery (they have 50% on their bread after 9:30pm daily). And it is right across a big supermarket which has everything you need if you forget to bring something from your home country. Laundry serv

A peaceful Mecca
incredibly friendly workers, fantastic yoga and perfect location
My stay at hotel Himalaya Yoga was fantastic. From the moment we arrived, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. In the mornings, we attended yoga classes for free that were taught by a wonderfully warm teacher. Also, the staff gave us excellent advice about trekking and helped us every step of the way. The day we were leaving, all the busses to Besishar were booked and the staff called all the bus companies to ensure a safe and successful trip to our next location. I would definitely come back to stay at Hotel Himalaya Yoga when I'm back in Kathmandu!

FREE YOGA, Lovely staff, Perfect location
1. Free yoga classes with a gem instructor. He is very knowledgeable and his classes are fun and relaxing. 2. Staff is very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. 3. Perfect location, walk everywhere.
I stayed 5 nights and am so happy I did. Comfortable bed, hot showers (when no power outage) and tasty food. Great value for you money! It is peaceful, not a social backpacker hostel. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys yoga and wants to stay in Kathmandu a few nights.

Good Service but poor facilities
Good Location and free yoga in the morning
I would say that the location of Hotel Himalaya Yoga is really good (lies in the heart of Thamel shopping area) though it was initially hard to find due to the many signboards along the streets and it being known by the locals as Himalaya Yoga Meditation Centre instead. It was nice of them to serve us tea upon arrival too However, the bad experience kicked in when we wanted to have a bath/use the toilet...the water that flowed out of the tap was murky yellow which was gross, the toilet flushing system was faulty, I had a minor electric shock when I touched the shower tap (something wrong with the heater perhaps)..and one has to wait for at least 15mins for the water to heat up before you can bath...Due to all these problems, we actually asked for a change of room, the staff was very kind and told us that he would allow us to stay in a bigger room that was more expensive for free.. However, we were astonished when we saw the bedsheet in the bigger and "better" room wet..there was water leaking from the top of the room and the room actually gave us a creepy a haunted castle with all the superb old wooden furniture, ancient looking toilet door (like a dungeon door) we decided to go back to our previous room despite the faulty toilet system..Well, it was an interesting experience though but I must say, the service was good.
