The staff and the hostel manager is very nice, they're helpful and provide us with endless hospitality, love it. The room is okay but its clean, more light and air con will be great, though. But, so far its still acceptable. There is free wifi inside the room which also very great and the free breakfast is totally worth it where we can order everything in the menu and the taste is delicious! The location is good as its in the Thamel area which is a backpacker area and near markets. One suggestion in the website its better to put the name of the road (Tradevi Marg) since we only has address "Thamel, Kathmandu" and our driver drop us in the corner of the street because no clear address of this hostel in the internet.

Rooms are ok and clean enough. Staff is quite friendly. Nice public area.

A bit pricey for what it is, better value can be found elsewhere in Kathmandu.

A bit of a problem booking online (have experienced this elsewhere as well), so make sure you re-confirm by email a day or two before coming in.

Elbrus Home was a haven in Kathmandu. The owner, Khem, is a wonderfully gracious host and very helpful and kind. He is well connected in Thamel and was able to gratefully help us in many ways, often personally. The rooms are large and fairly clean and when we were a bit cold, he offered us the portable space heater which quickly warmed up our room. A computer for internet and wireless were wonderful as we had some picture backup and blog updating to do and the large included breakfasts were tasty with endless milk tea. Khem even gave us a blessing and a scarf when we left and we would be happy to recommend Elbrus to anyone.

The service given by Khem and his staff (Raj and Ali) is nothing short of fantastic! It was like staying with friends. The room and bathroom were clean and breakfast was very good (and as Khem said "Served whenever you get up")
I have never experienced this level of service and interest from a hotel manager anywhere in the world and I have been to 53 countries.
We loved Nepal and hope to go back and will certainly stay here next time.

- They can organize things but you can get it cheaper if you do it by yourself
And they are not here for you if something turns bad with what they organized (which was the case for us!)
- Food is good, the breakfast is great
- Rooms are ok if you do not have any high demand (but could be cleaner)
