I really like the quiet, homely location of the hotel. There is a good atmosphere and the local people are very friendly. I stayed in Thamel a few years ago and this felt like a much more real and authentic Kathmandu experience . Sara and Sudan (the owners) were so kind and friendly. They honestly could not help enough and I am so grateful that they helped me recover my mobile phone (which I inexplicably left in a local taxi). I would definitely recommend staying here for an authentic Kathmandu experience and the warmth of the hosts and local people :)
The local busses are cheap but often very overcrowded or full and for many just not worth the hassle. With no tuk tuks in kathmandu, the main option is to take taxis everywhere. Hiring a bicycle or motorbike is possible, but definitely not for the inexperienced or faint hearted on Kathmandu's roads!
I like the people, service and the lovely environment. This is the third time in Nepal and this is the best place I ever stayed in Nepal.
supporting staff, sara and sudan really doing well. abt the location... try rooftop view (mind your head) at the hotel location calm-full.
kitchen should be more clean
We got a very big room with 2 beds and a balcony. We loved our stay there and Sara and her husband made us feel really welcomed. There’s also a shared kitchen available (you 50rs per person per day to use it). The rooftop is lovely. The guesthouse is located in a really quiet area with many local restaurants and shops, far from the noise of the city. For the price paid it was definitely a great choice!
It’s a bit far from the touristic area of Kathmandu. There are frequent minivan connecting the guesthouse with Thamel area but only till 7pm! After that you need to catch a taxi and it’s quite expensive!
Super friendly staff. A good place to stay if you're looking to avoid the tourist crowd in the city. They store luggage for free for a few days.
Very far from city centre and getting public transport to Thamel/city centre is a nightmare and taxis are expensive. No elevator so have to climb atleast 3 floors. Broken toilet seat was not fixed even after 4 days.
With a stay at Sara's Backpackers Hotel in Kathmandu, you'll be within a 10-minute drive of Pashupatinath Temple and Garden of Dreams. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. Free self parking is available onsite.
