“AN OASIS IN BUDDHIST NEIGHBOORHOOD OF KATHMANDU”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

The guesthouse of the monastery Bairoling Kathmandu is an ideal place to relax and forget the noise and traffic jams of the city. It's a nice place, with a big garden area with picnic tables prepared. There is possibility to book a catering for lunch as a group. The hostel is located in the Tibetan neighborhood, near the famous Boudahnath stupa, a sacred place for Buddhists. The best thing to stay in Bairoling is the direct deal with buddhist monks, as they themselves are responsibles for the guest and the possibility to assist to their morning "poojas" or prayers. A wonderful experience in a magic place full of a very special energy.

This is an amazing place to stay - forget booking online, phone or email, just turn up during day to get a room.

On the site of the Bairoling Monastery, these rooms are used by people on retreats, Buddhist pilgramages and holidays to Boudha.

The rooms are comfortable (usually super firm Nepalese beds) very clean and the location overlooks a tranquil garden and the really lovely monastery.

Free tea and coffee. Breakfast is extra, I didn't take it.

The monk who seems to live there and run it is very friendly, if there's no one about try knocking on the door next to the entrance.

The entrance on the main road is a gate which has letters above which says 'Tashi Dalek' (welcome in Tibetan). There is no sign.

It's super cheap (6,000 Rupees, no local tax, about 10 dollars US per night) and generally peaceful, although like much of Kathmandu there are some noisy yapping dogs.

The monks start chanting about 5.30am. Brings some earplugs and all is well.
