    Nice quiet hostel”

    I like everything about it save that the toilet could be cleaner or at least place a wiper in the toilet for the guests to drain the water on their own. The location is not too far from Thamel in a quiet area. Dorm bed is comfortable with a good locker. Staffs are friendly and helpful. It has a restaurant as well but I didn't try the food. Wi-Fi worked most of the time during my stay. Overall it's a nice stay in this hostel.

    We went to Kathmandu to start here the Annapurna Circuit. And it was the best dessicion to stay at the famous house. The guys from the Hotel we‘re so friendly and kind! They helped us organizing all stuff we needed for the circuit and guided us through the City to find everything. In Addition to that we could leave some stuff at the Hotel for free during the hike. Although their was a big festival when we stayed there they arranged a bus for us to Besisahar the next day. So Thea are really really helpful. They gave us their phone number and told us to call them if something will happen on the hike what makes us feel save during the whole hike. Thanks for that!!! The rooms are clean and they have a warm shower and we had a really delicious dinner on the beautiful Rooftop! So yes we will come back and can highly reccomend this Hotel to everyone. Dhaanebad

    Nice clean and quiet place a bit outside of crazy Thamel”

    I'm happy that I found Famous House - it is located in 10 minutes walk from Thamel, nice, clean, with great staff. So you can easily enjoy party time when you want and have quiet nights to sleep and mornings with breakfast at roof top bar. Staff is nice, kind and helpful. I went for trekking and they allowed me to leave some laggage (to be lighter on the way to Everest base camp) - that was cool. Thank you!

    You get what you pay for, not more!”

    The cheap prices are no surprise. The staff is untrained. The place has potential but it's not used. The showers were cold 3 out of 3 nights and a bit dirty. But the food in the nice roof top restaurant is very good, so at least the chef knows what's he's doing. I prefer to spend a bit more money for more comfort next time!

    Kathmandu Hostel style. If you like hostels you might like it.”

    Kathmandu Hostel style. If you are like 20 years old, traveling alone or just stay for one night and used to use hostels you might like it. Breakfast is okay even tho every option from the menue looks exactly the same (just stick with the cheapest one). For Dinner you have more choices and it is quite good. The staff is a bit pushy in trying to sell you diffrent kind of tours or adventure tours /guides. It was very loud in our room cause it was close to a field where kids were playing soccer all day long starting very early in the morning. During night you can listen eather to the fighting and barking street dogs and getting bite by Moskitos all night ore you listen to the very loud fan in the room and getting sweaty anyway. All in all it was okay. But we probably spend a little more mony next time for a own bathroom and a Moskito net.
