I stayed at the Elbrus for 4 nights and would thoroughly recommend it to any traveller looking for genuinely friendly hosts, great location (5 minute walk from the chaos of Thamel) , immaculately clean and spacious well appointed rooms over the 2 sites and a beautiful garden that acts as an oasis of calm where the sumptuous breakfast is served....

Elbrus home was a nice and welcoming backpacker hostel near Thamel. The staff was always helpful, friendly, funny and not pushing. Rooms are okay for the price. Breakfast is quite big and delicious. It was very nice that there always was drinking water. The hostel has a nice small green garden. The security man at the entrance was a good...

Very great place to stay on a budget and quite convenient to sightseeing around Kathmandu, with the benefit of being a tad removed from the more crowded areas. Very nice and helpful staff! Facilities were clean and comfortable enough.

Elbrus home is at the top of my list for hostels in the world. The staff is incredible. Helpful with every aspect of your trip. Great atmosphere. Breakfast is top notch. Location is perfect in my mind. We stayed here a total of 12 nights. It would be foolish to go anywhere else. Can't wait to come back!

It was nice to not have to get up and worry about finding a place to eat in the morning. The beds are comfy with a...

Arrived 2nd November 2016 and stayed 4 nights. Would rate 6 stars if we could ! Awesome breakfast and Khem + the team couldn't be any more helpful if they tried. Made our time in Kathmandu very comfortable and a bit less stress free. Would definitely stay again ! Ste & Danny from Liverpool

All of the main shopping and eating areas can be reached with 5 minutes of walking. The hostel itself is very clean and has good wifi, en-suite rooms and nice toof terraces for...

Had an amazing time at Elbrus home. The staff are super friendly and up for a laugh, the garden area is so chill where you can sit and read or have a few drinks. On top of that you're served a nice breakfast every morning which puts you in great form for exploring thamel about 5 minutes away up the...

Stayed for two nights in a private en-suite. The staff were friendly, the rooms were clean and it was at a decent price. Approximately 10 minute walk into the centre of Thamel, allowing some respite in the evenings.
