Excellent hostel, one of the best I ever have in life. People there are super amazing. If you would love to meet some good friends , this is the place ! Thanks every Fatcat backpackers for making my trip super awesome !


I enjoyed the staff's friendliness. The two meals that came with the cost of the stay was healthy. It was interesting to share in the chores by pulling straws. Being early winter, getting hot water for a shower took a long time to warm up, and there was no hot water to wash dishes. Internet wifi was provided, but being there for 2 days, all that was given was 30mb, really not much.


A great place to relax if you're stressed out take a day or two to unwind befor going on an adventure. it will set the tone for the rest of your trip and put your mind in the right place for traveling and remind you that it isn't always about pushing yourself to see everything as quickly as possible but that it is also important to unwind relax and live

The staff and guest were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was conducive for meeting quality people. The work shops were fun and informative. Unfortunately someone walked off with my pair of Keens which cost me quite a lot to replace at Kathmandu.


This is pretty much a hippy commune,and if your up for that kind of thing you will love it. The atmosphere is so intoxicating and positive you cant help but be happy. Only issue is the lack of loos and showers when there are lots of residents but that's the only setback. Amazing food, great music, best people.


Amazing community of woofers and backpackers. Atmosphere sucks you in with all the positivity. Great place to meet open-minded people and eat excellent veggie foods. If you want to party and eat food from grease factories, don't come here!
