Kathmandu, an erstwhile hippie hotspot, still plays host to hordes of backpackers and tourists on a shoestring budget. Quite naturally, the destination has quite a few guest houses catering to the requirements of such visitors. Join me on a quick tour of some of the popular guest houses in Kathmandu.

  • Acme Guest House

Sitting amidst green locales in Central Thamel, Acme Guest House has won over the hearts of many satisfied patrons. Despite its peaceful location, the guesthouse is a short walk away from conveniences such as restaurants, nightclubs, shops, and banks. Facilities here include free yoga and meditation classes, parking area, lawn and garden, trekking assistance, wi-fi connectivity and travel desk. Depending upon your budget, there are three categories of rooms to choose from namely Economy, Standard and Garden Facing AC rooms. The guest house is hardly a half an hour drive away from the Kathmandu International Airport.

The minimum daily tariff starts at about INR 300.

  • Tibet Peace Guest House

This deceptively nondescript guest house has made its way to the renowned Lonely Planet. Offering a choice of 22 rooms, it sits in sylvan garden settings, while being scarcely a 5 minute walk away from Kathmandu's tourist hustle and bustle. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are available and the guest house also offers room service. Some of the amenities include safe deposit boxes, long term luggage storage, wildlife safaris, trekking, rafting, and car rental.

The tariff starts just at about INR 200 to 300 a day.

  • Kathmandu Peace Guest House

This place has earned rave reviews in Trip Advisor and offers slightly more enhanced facilities than a strictly run of the mill guest house. Surrounded by a bush garden and offering majestic rooftop views of the Himalayas such as Mt. Ganesh Himal and Langtang, the Kathmandu Peace Guest House assures great visual appeal. The rooms are comfortably large and have been equipped with satellite television. The guest house has a choice of three room categories namely Economy, Standard, and Deluxe. Facilities include daily laundry service, safe deposit box, free luggage storage, Internet, and Doctor on Call. For food, one can tuck into Nepali, Indian, Chinese and Continental cuisines served at the restaurant here.

Room rates start at about INR 400 a day.
