The price is right and location cant be beat.They have great staff who take good care of their guests. Good value for the money we spent. I have heard that some...

This place is fine, but I wouldn't recommend it, nor stay there again. Breakfast only, and the rooms were pretty shabby. The owner/guy who ran the place seemed to live across from our room and was constantly interviewing people, I assume for staff work at this and other places. His sink fell off the wall and was repaired that night,...

I stayed at this place a month earlier in a room on the top floor. I had booked a double room but was told there were two single beds, so I took it. In my return trip, I had booked the same room as it was a bit quieter being at the top and at the side of the building....

This place is getting a bit old and worn but after travelling around Nepal and returning back here at the end of our stay we realised it is pretty good value. The staff are very friendly and helpful and they have some affordable breakfast options. The free pick up from the airport is great. Like most places in Nepal, the...

We have stayed at Karma Travellers Home twice during our month in Nepal and had great experiences both times. The staff are very helpful and knowledgable, and the rooms suited 3 young backpackers superbly well. Karma Travellers Home is also in a perfect location in the centre of Thamel (the main tourist area), close to many restaurants and shops. The...

We have had a great time at the Karma Traveller's Home. It is affordable on a backpacker's budget and has everything you need (hot shower and comfortable bed) with good wifi as an added bonus. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect - right in the heart of Thamel. Would highly recommend to other backpackers.

Our stay at karma travellers home was great! Rooms were spacious and had everything we needed. They were nice and clean and the staff were friendly. I would recommend this hotel to those looking for something cheaper but with all the features of the more expensive hotels in kathmandu. Will deffinitly be staying here again when i next visit kathmandu!

I was in Karma travellers home for couple of days. This is a great opportunity to choose this hotel. They have pick up service. The room was clean, hot water running 24 hours. Shops and restaurants are nearby. All employees are funny and beautiful. Rough, they have free WiFi, at any time, even without electrical power. They have a rooftop...

A positive is we were picked up at the airport 11pm. They were proactive by going inside the airport and finding us as well as having someone stand w a sign. Also were friendly & helpful. The owner did what he said he would & sent a car for us. At hotel, most of the staff were friendly. At night...
