I spent my first 2 nights in Nepal here and have found this a peaceful place in which to recover from jetlag and from which to explore Boudha and Pashupatinath on foot without having to deal with taxis. The rooms are monastically simple, the hot water is restricted, so is electricity, but you can charge devices at the reception at...

Everything here attracted me to come back again, the helpful staffs, peace and tranquility , beautiful garden and the convenient location. The price of room is inclusive of breakfast and personally I find it very reasonable. The guesthouse is beside Shechen Monastery. You can visit the gompa at certain time of the day and beside the gompa there is a...

The garden in this guest house attracted my attention. This place is located beside a monastery and is really safe, especially for females travelling around Kathmandu. Services are very good. There was even wifi + printer facilities which made it so much easier to check in for my flight and print details. Charges are very minimal. Good breakfast menu with...

Stayed 20 and 21 April 2014. Booked in person a couple of weeks before we needed the accommodation. Shechen guesthouse is a real gem, and only a 5 minute walk from the Stupa. You need a torch at night, but the lane leading from the Stupa is very safe. If arriving on foot you'll need directions from the main entrance...

Adjacent to the impressive Shechen Tennyi Dargyeling Gompa found the Shechen Guest House to be a welcoming jewel set in beautifully tended gardens. There is an excellent vegetarian garden cafe here as well, although found it to be somewhat over-priced. My welcoming, comfortable room was sparkling clean with thoughtful zen touches of Tibetan art, attached bathroom, hot/cold water. Room rate...

A place where you can meet westerners who give up everything to become a Lama in the monastery. Besides, they have one of the best vegetarian restaurants in the city! Great place to know interesting people and enjoy the quietness at the same time if you are traveling alone.

Shechen Guest house is located very close to the stupa in Bodhnath. It is about 5 minutes of walk from the Guest house to the stupa... enough to be a harbour of peace located just aside the hustle and bustle around the stupa. As soon as you enter the beautiful garden you can already sense the peaceful atmosphere of the...

“Upstairs is better. Fresher during monsoon and warmer in the winter.”

“all rooms are light with two windows and decent bathroom with hot water and Western toilet. Choose first floor and not the two end rooms that connect - not enough privacy and soundproofing!”
  • This is the lovely garden for breakfast in the sunshine.
