This place is a real stalwart for travellers in Nepal’s capital.
Overview Built in 1967, it was the first hotel in Thamel, which is the city’s most touristy district – in fact The Beatles stayed here in the Sixties.
There still aren’t a huge amount of decent budget options in Kathmandu, and this guesthouse is not only reliably clean, but also has a lively, communal atmosphere.
Bike hire shops and tour operators are just a stone’s throw away, and there is a decent bar and restaurant on site.
Staff are keen to help with any travel questions you might have and lots of tours depart from here.
Wow factor The guesthouse has some well-kept, pretty gardens which are perfect for lazing in on sunny days or meeting other travellers.
Rooms A massive range in quality, from ultra basic rooms to more lavish suites.
Sound proofing isn’t great and when busy, the corridors can be incredibly noisy.
Bill please The most basic room is just £1.30, but an average budget double room costs £10.
