I'm a first time traveller: where to stay in Kathmandu?

Travel Forums Asia I'm a first time traveller: where to stay in Kathmandu?

I've started traveling on my own 3 years ago and the opportunity to visit Nepal next week came up. Last month, I bumped into the first Filipino to climb Everest and he told me that Nepal is the place to be. I'm a working student who sold clothes and books to buy round-trip airlines tickets, now I have to spend as modestly as possible. HELP!

Any recommendations on where to stay for less (or much less) than 20USD per night? with free wifi?

thanks in advance

I have never been to Nepal, but used the 'Accommodation' option, left panel here on TP. Select 'budget accomm.', find 'Nepal', then select 'Kathmandu'.

I found 3 that are under $11/nite single. The Hotel Potala offers rooms at $8. Hotel Karma is $10. The Kathmandu Maduban GH quotes $8 single. I hope this helps with your planning.
