Starts from only $5 per night per person
Stayed here in-between my treks in Nepal. The place is very affordable and located in a nice quiet area with several small shops just minutes away. The people running the hostel are always smiling and happy to help with anything that might come up. Right onto my top 10 list of hostels worldwide.
Stayed November 2015, traveled solo
I stayed with Dormitory Nepal before and after I went trekking in the Everest region, in a total for around 2 weeks while planning my next trip to India. First I’ll recommend the place because of the people! The staffs kindness, hospitality and willingness to help you in every aspect of your needs are truly remarkable. They can help you with local plaintickets, bustickets or with tips for planning your stay. They even provide a wide selection of guided trekkingtrips or whatever your heart desire. And again its all without being pushy and trying to force you to buy anything.The house is an older big house, that used to house a wealthy family. Now it provides a charm where you can feel at home without any stress. The location is a bit far from the central hassle of downtown Thamel (roughly 45 min walk), but with busses going all the time (except during fuel crisis), its really nothing. All in all I really enjoyed my stay, and I cant recommend them enough! If/when I return to Kathmandu, I’ll definitely stay with these guys again. Make sure to join them for dinner and Dal bhat power 🙂
