“Found a home in Thamel, great place to stay!”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

We were taken here from the airport and that was a great idea not to bother (1st time we followed someone after 5 months travel in India).
The rooms are really good value for money, clean and clear, the double bed with attached bathroom, and TV. The whole for a very fair price after asking around for prices in Thamel.
The guys in charge are really nice and honest, no problem of trust, which is also important.
Well, we feel like at home in Shangri-La GH now and each time we come to Kathmandu after a trek (we've been in Nepal for 1 month and a 1/2), we know where to put our luggage and settle down to relax before heading up to the next destination.

One of the most brilliant place to stay. Very friendly staffs + clean & comfortable room. All of the staffs speak quite good English and one of the manager even speaks JAPANESE very fluently so no worries about the language ;) Though this hotel is located in Thamel and takes only a few minutes walk to the main street, the place is very quiet and calm.
Lots of guests and the staffs here really love music which I'm also into. Sitting together and drinking tea and playing guitars with them on the rooftop is one of my most precious memory in Nepal. If you are looking forward to a hotel that really makes you feel like at home, this is definitely the place to go.

Shangri-la - a hostel with a heavenly experience where the staff and management are excellent. You can chill on the rooftop and get great food and drinks from the cook Neresh. Amit the Owner gives sound advice on all trekking trips and has good local knowledge of Nepal. Relaxed atmosphere with good ambiance be sure to check out the chill out room. Musicians are most welcome to jam with talented artists of Kathmandu. Location 2 mins just off the main junction of Thamel easy to catch a tourist bus to Pokhra and Chitwan. Be sure to visit and say Hi from Izzy to Amit..

The customers service in this guesthouse is quite terrible. They dont have any respect or loyalty towards old clients...The bookings you do in this Guesthouse are not guaranteed because often they forget or if they sell the room to someone else for more money they can forget your booking. They often have problems with the backup for electricity. I also had a problem because they accused us of checking out without paying because apparently one of the employers stole the money we paid for the room...do yourself a favor a book somewhere else...

We were made to feel part of the family, and immediately felt at home and comfortable with the wonderful friendly staff. It was a real haven in amongst the hustle and bustle of busy Kathmandu. The accommodation is perfectly adequate with a lovely rooftop restaurant and great food. The associated tour company Corsa Nepal Adventures, run by Nakul Devkota, quickly and efficiently organised a great tour for us to Chitwan National Park and on to Pokhara for some trekking. Everything went extremely smoothly and was professionally arranged with Nakul keeping in touch throughout the tour to make sure we were all OK. I thoroughly recommend the Shangri-la and Corsa Nepal Adventures.

I spent 14 days in Shangri-La guest house. Very good quality-price. I felt myself in secure and I could meet very nice people. I was there during the Dipavali festival and the employers of Shangri-La have become friends. They discuss with you, and they are helpful,
