What the Karma Travellers Home lacks in modern updates- it makes up for in excellent customer service. Front desk staff was kind, accommodating, and served as wonderful hosts, including free transportation to/from airport. Hotel and rooms overall are a bit run down- but I had a nice stay here. Great location in the Thamel district, close to shops and restaurants. Had hot water and decent internet connection. I traveled as a female solo traveler and felt safe staying here alone.
