We stayed at Trekker's Home for almost 2 months. Before arriving, I had done quite a bit of research and chose this hostel for several reasons: only apartment in downtown Thamel, good reviews, good communication with the owner, Rajendra, and a good deal on the apartment. It is 3 bedroom with a large living room, 2 full bathrooms, and a spacious kitchen. It is on the roof, the only room there, so the view and sunlight are magnificient.
On our arrival everything was new. New stove, new refrigerator. It was gorgeous and clean. They have a laundry service and will also supply large jugs of water for a nominal fee. I didn't expect the manager to be SO hospitable and kind and he really made our visit. Dipendra Bhatta is the best manager we could've hoped for. He got cabs, cars, made trips, and organized our bungy jumping and white water rafting for minimal stress to us. He got us good deals on everything from cars to massage packages. He had dinner with us and even had his cooks prepare goat curry for us, a Nepali specialty. The Wifi was adequate, and he even installed a new router to speed up our internet and provided us with an office since my husband was still working during our trip. The view from the rooftop deck was gorgeous.
In short the staff was gracious and always willing to help. The manager was the best I've ever stayed with. The apartment was clean and well-stocked. The only drawback was the loud restaurant's generator which they turned on during load-shedding but this is typical of the country and a minor inconvenience at best. I would stay here again anytime, it's my home away from home.
