It was quite fine until earthquake happened, manager abandoned the hostel, only one employee was near but absent, no one took much care of the guests after the tragedy and instead we felt kind of abandoned.

Dear Alex, Thanks for your comment but who will take care of that terrify moment . are you kidding ? we lost our house and so many things and you saying that we don't care you, even you don't feel gilt to say that . you think only about you? not only us who not care about guest there was all Nepal sadly moment you should understand about it if you are good human. Thanks


Nice enough, the guy working there is nice. Wasn't much of an atmosphere, but good value and the beds are comfy. Also right in the centre of thamel.


Pretty good for Nepal. Light breakfast included. Friendly staff. Homey vibe. Lockers are outside the rooms. Little noise at night because it's down a quiet alley in thamel, the main tourist area.
