For Kathmandu, this was a great budget hostel option. Its only about an easy 10 min walk from the tourist Thamel district, and the common lounge areas were so cute and comfy. The staff was so incredibly helpful. The rooms themselves are a bit dumpy. We had to move our initial room because the toilet didnt flush, then the heater in our second room didnt work. And the bathroom was just gross. So it worked for a couple nights, but i probably wouldnt stay here again but you get what you pay for.


The location is in a hectic part of the city, though slightly removed, and the rooms were minimalist, but the staff are so friendly and the lobby and gardens were beautiful. Most importantly the staff went out of their way to help us arrange everything. They found a motorcycle rental for us and brought him directly to the hotel, stored our belongings during our trip and helped us arrange rides when we needed them. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Kathmandu.

The place is well maintained and the staff is very friendly. They have a lovely garden restaurant and the food is great! The rooms are a little small but clean and well maintained. With free wi-fi and cable tv, the place makes you feel at home!
