Cheap and worth while guesthouse

Not a bad hotel in the heart of Thamel with all the basics you need before your trek. The rooms are ok if a little on the dirty side. The Wifi is good if your near the router but if not then forget it.

Great location but average service

Location, only location
Since I was not familiar with Kathmandu, I booked this hostel. However, Upon arrival, I found many hostel nearby that can provide much better service with less money charged. I stayed for only one night. No sense of Youth Hostel. Price can be negotiable.

Great location, cheap and clean

Centrally located, price for money
My room was spacious and clean with many windows. The Internet wifi was free. Bottled water was available for drinking all the time. The guys at the reception were helpful in giving information about how to reach various spots in Kathmandu. There's a good bar and restaurant inside the hotel. So, I was overall happy with my stay.

Good value for money, loud people on the corridor

spacious and clean rooms, nice staff
we stayed at hi thamel hostel for one night. our room was quite pleasant - spacious and clean. however, as it was located near the reception, we couldn't sleep because of some people shouting all night on the corridor. you shouldn't expect warm water in the bathroom, too. overall, apart from the noises, the experience was quite nice.

Not the greatest

This hotel is in a good location but is not clean or comfortable even by Kathmandu standards. Saying this, staff are very friendly and attempt to respond to your needs.

Schmuddeliges Hotel, Geld gieriger Besitzer

Nettes Restaurant
Wir hatten 2 Zimmer gebucht und sollten 5 Dollar mehr bezahlen um ein gemeinschaftszimmer zu erhalten. Unsere gebuchten Zimmer seien nicht verfügbar. Zum schluss haben wir 2 3-Bett-Zimmer erhalten. Die Zimmer waren sehr dreckig, aus den wassehähnen kam nur braunes Wasser. Etwas gutes gibt es aber doch zu berichten, das Restaurant ist klasse und die meisten Angestellten sehr freundlich. Wer einen Ausflug Buchen möchte ist in den Nachbar Reisebüros günstiger dran. Bei jeder Gelegenheit wird versucht das Maximum aus dem Touristen heraus zu pressen. Dieselgeruch immer und überall, in der Nacht recht laut (je nach Zimmer kann es besser oder schlechter sein). Hier wird ausgenutzt das man bei Agoda im Vorraus bezahlt, am Anfang werden einem immer die schlechtesten Zimmer präsentiert um möglichst noch einen vollen Zimmerpreis für ein "Upgrade" zusätzlich zu erhalten. Es gibt viele bessere Alternativen in diesem preissegment!

Dreckiges Hotel mit schönem Restaurant

Restaurant im Innenhof, freundliche Angestellte
Zum wiederholten Male wird ausgenutzt das im Vorraus bezahlt worden ist. Uns wurden die schlechtesten feuchten Zimmer gezeigt, mit unangenehmen Gestank und uns wurde nahe gelegt ein Upgrade in Höhe eines weiteren Zimmers zu bezahlen. Wieder wurde jede Gelegenheit genutzt um Geld ab zu zocken. Obwohl wir 4 Personen sind und 2 Doppelzimmer gebucht hatten, sollten wir nur zwei Handtücher bekommen, da nur 1 Handtuch pro Zimmer eingeplant ist - ob das wohl im Schlafsaal genau so ist? Als positives ist die Lage in Thamel und der Innenhof zu erwähnen.

停電が頻繁にあり、しかもなかなか復旧しない。部屋は結構汚く、シーツも湿っぽかった。バスルームはトイレの匂いがきつく、トイレは流れないこともあった。洗面台の水はなぜか元栓が締められていた。 WI-Fiは部屋の中に入ってしまうと途切れる。しかも停電の間は使えず(周辺のほかの宿は使える)、これといって良いところのない宿。安さくらい。しかし周辺に同価格帯でたくさん良い宿があるので、ここは1泊でやめて直接交渉で違う宿を見つけた。
