“Can't hope to find a better place”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

A great guest house in a good location. What makes this place special is the brother owners Khem and Ali and also the great value when you consider the perfect breakfast that you get.

We were collected from the airport by Ali (which was cheaper than a taxi) and made to feel at home immediately.

We met Khem when we arrived and he quite simply said "let me know if there is anything that I can do for you" and did help with anything that we needed.

Great guys, great place and we had no hesitation on going back when we arrived back into Kathmandu after our trek and we were very happy to be met by Khem.

Room Tip: Remember that you'll be getting a great breakfast as part of the price when comparing to other p...

I stayed in Elbrus Home for over a week in March while I was in Kathmandu and I can absolutely recommend it. The three different rooms I stayed in where all comfortable and clean. There is an amazing garden were delicious breakfast is served every morning. The people who work there are just lovely and helped me out with everything I needed (transport, trips, advice). I spent a lot of time there just hanging out and it was very relaxing. The location is perfect, right next to Thamel.
I also met a lot of nice people there everyday and there is a very social atmosphere.
Warm showers, internet, a computer, many books and a very cute white fluffy dog, what else do you need? If I would go to Kathmandu again I would definitely go to Elbrus Home again!

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper avoid a room that faces the street. But even better bring earplugs as...

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. The owner Khem is an absolute diamond, he is so friendly and welcoming he really can't do enough for you, all the staff are really kind.
The hostel has a lovely little relaxing garden where you get served a delicious breakfast at what ever time you roll out of bed, you can eat breakfast on the sunny roof terraces or the garden.
Khem booked us an excursion to Chitwan whilst we stayed at Elbrus, the trip was fantastic but what is better than storing all your things at the hostel and knowing there safe.
The hostel has a real backpacker feel with a friendly atmosphere, it's close to shops and restaurants so you will never be stuck for choice.

The nicest Hostel i found here... i felt very welcome here and met a lot of nice people from all over the world. Rate is with a tasty breakfast and always a really hot shower, clean rooms plus the great view, and it is not directly in the crowded street of Thamel but very very close and you can come down of the city. I defenitely wanna come back to Elbrus Home if i go once more to this lovely country! Have fun with the funny guy Khem (he speaks every language a little bit) :) THANK YOU AND SEE YA

Elbrus Home has a lovely feel to it and a nice relaxed atmosphere. If you like chilling in the center of the city this is the place.Its close to all the shops, the center is in walking distance and there are people in and out if you feel like socialising on one of the several terraces and a garden when you want to relax and enjoy. The rooms are clean, the is hot water and wi-fi, the service is friendly and welcoming and it is good value for money.
The reception also offers advice and services on tours, trekking, mt. e. flights, sight seeing, bus and air tickets plus airport transfer, and probably whatever you need if you ask nicely! If you want a full experience with great friendly service this is the place.
