Freshest food made just for us! Because of not many tourists coming to Kathmandu lately (due to COVID-19) the lady of the house makes her own Nepali dishes just for you. Take your time and enjoy the real and fresh Nepali taste. We have been...here twice now and would go again. Highly recommend!More

If you are considering staying or eating here, then you must proceed! I stayed at Artmadu for 10 days and nights in March/ April 2020 in the Coronavirus lockdown. I will 100% be back! The staff are amazing, and they made me feel so welcome....The food is brilliant- especially the Palak Paneer. Artmandu supplies exactly what is needed in a hostel. The best thing about Artmandu is that it is very social. There are 3 teraces which provide the perfect environment for socialising and during my stay here I have made some lifelong friends. Finally, it is extremely good value. The best I have experienced in Kathmandu. Often very inexpensive hostels are lacking but this does not apply to Artmandu, which is clean and comfy. See you next time xMore

I stayed at this place for 2 days. This has a list of issues - there was no one to check me in. I got in on my own and then the staff turned up. The water in the overhead tank finished, and I had...to wait for water to take a shower. The phone number on booking.com website is not correct. So when you book you do have a correct contact. There are other places available. Entire Thamel and periphery has numerous hotels/hostels.More

Went there before EBC and back again before I left for AC. Wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else. Stayed in a room with 6 bunk beds, at a very affordable price, hot shower included and the staff are some of the friendliest and nicest people...I've met in Nepal after 1.5 months (and that's saying something). Even though it's smack in the middle of Thamel, it's not loud at all and a great place to just relax on one of the many terraces and meet people from around the world, before going on your next Nepali adventure. Daniebat to the whole team. See you next time! Namaste!More

Now I know where I'll stay I guess kathmandu every time I go back! The food was delicious, the location was perfect for me (just out of reach from the crazyness of thamel). And I know the staff there are simply awesome. Big thank you...to Sabin for always being there with a smile ready to help!More

The staff and owners are incredibly nice at this hostel, we have been to many places but nowhere were they as welcoming as here. The music, the atmosphere, people and vibe are so chill that one cannot help but feel homesick when leaving Kathmandu. When...my girlfriend got sick they took great care of her, and even though we lost many a chess match to the staff I can still say- with broken pride- that it was truly exceptional.More

We arrive in this little hostel in Kathmandu after searching for 1hour in the street of thamel for a chill place to stay. The place was new and still in development, the staff was lovely and was really caring for us. there are rooms on...the first, second and third floor. each floor has a large terrace with tables and seats for chilling. they have a restaurant downstairs and the chef is very very good. Located in Thamel but a little out of the main streets. this place allows you to rest and meet a lot of travelers.More

This is one of the best hostels I've been so far, amazing food, the atmosphere is great, the staff is caring and kind, they serve the best black tea, the dorms are clean and comfortable, it's very affordable. Many thanks to Mr. Achut and all...the people who made my stay unforgettable.More

I went to Artmandu twice while I was in Kathmandu, and I had the sweet potato momos kothay both times. The owner had recommended them to me, and I really enjoyed their unique spin on the local favourite dumpling. The up-cycled decor is interesting, and...inside the restaurant it has a communal feel with just a couple of big tables. It was nice to go there solo and be able to chat with the owner and other backpackers as I ate.More
