Great Stay. Great staff, nice location away from the noisy streets of Thamel. Only issue with the dorm room I stayed in is... Cochroaches (and some as big as my thumb!) Sleep was a bit restless knowing I was co-habiting with bugs...


I stayed in the dorm room, everything was good, only 2 complaints. 1. Not very plesant shared bathroom for the floor. It was too small and had a bad smell. 2. The owner sold me a really expensive tour package, I regret buying it, as I could've done all those things myself for probably half the price. Good location, quiet and good restaurant.


The hotel had power outages everyday and the staff try to sell you expensive package tours while stoned.There is no air conditioning and the fan speed is only high however you can't use the fans when the power is out. I was taken to the airport by the manager to do trekking in Annapurna and then they charged me for the room while i was away because they said i didn't communicate properly i wanted my luggage stored. You can hear traffic noise, i wouldn't stay in Kathmandu again just go to Polkara

Lovely place with a beautiful rooftop restaurant. You might have a little difficulty finding it for the first time as it's tucked away from the busy streets if thamel. But that is it's advantage as well. Food is great and the rooms have a cute little balcony with chairs that make for a perfect reading spot!


The staffs working there are excellent. very polite and warmhearted. And the breakfast included in the expense was very good. They have different set of breakfast every morning. My first trip in Kathmandu I stayed there, and when i come back from Pokahra, i stayed there again.

Recommended! Food at rooftop restaurant was excellent! Nice atmosphere but twice was chased out of areas by a child who ran around whining


The staff is very helpful. It is well located, even though it´s not on Thamel street so at night can be very dark and lonely; but as it is just a few steps from the busy Thamel, this cannot be a real problem. Beds are super confortable. Rooms at the first floor are noisy.


We stayed for 3 nights and thought the place was quite average. We had some confusion with the room we booked which took quite a while to sort out, and the staff weren't particularly helpful - no maps and when asked where places where they weren't able to direct us. I would say that they charge hotel prices but are definitely more of a hostel.


Love this place the staff and manager is great!! Free breakfast included :)
