VERY FRIENDLY PLACE, NOT VERRY COZY IN WINTER, GREAT STAFF, AVERAGE FOOD, HELPFUL TO THE EXTREME. I AM COMING HERE EVERY YEAR SINCE 20 YEARS AND MORE.
No one was at the airport to pick me up - reception said a guy was there, the owner said his wife was there - no one was there so went to the Tibet Guest House - excellent with battery back up!!!! I did go here the next day but after no electric for 10 hrs I left. The basic $6 single room: bed felt like a cement slab, no fan, wifi, toilet paper, bathrooms were filthy. Don't do it!!!!!
Greate location (Tamel district). Greate Staff. Hotel like Guest House.
This hostel takes care of its guests by greeting them upon arrival at whatever hour of the day or night. They go the extra distance to satisfy your needs so you are comfortable and you enjoy your stay in KTM. The facilities are clean, in a great location with cares, bars, restaurants, and lots of shopping. If you want to plan a tour, let the staff help you as they know all the great places in KTM and around Nepal. Also, if you want to make friends this is the place.
The rooms seem newer on the street side but are so noisy! Keep your bathroom door closed to keep the AC in and the bar noises out. Staff will only clean your room if you ask them. The owner is very helpful in arranging tours and giving advice on what and where to go. Only a 20 minute walk to Palace Museum if you can maneuver through the maze of streets that is the crazy Thalem district.
