Down a side alleyway off the Main Street in Thamel, there was plenty around to see and do. Although, go a few streets over if you're looking for cheaper food, they hike it up on the Main Street. Staff were lovely and helpful, and free breakfast was a big plus! Being one of the cheapest accomodation in Kathmandu, the beds and facilities were basic but good value for money. They had wifi, a rooftop balcony, and a shower. Other travellers staying there were lovely, and we had a great stay!

It is a great hostel. The location was perfect in my opinion, still in Thamel, but in a quieter area, near good places to eat good in a low budget. The guys there where really nice, specially Krishna who was really friendly and helpful with everyone around. The beds are comfy, the rooms safe, they have a nice rooftop to have a simple breakfast every morning. They stored some of my stuff while I was trekking for almost a month and when I went back everything was in perfect conditions.

Comfortable beds, hot showers all the time, and great location in the tourist center of Kathmandu. Close to good restaurants, shopping, etc. Amazing value! The only downside is that the hostel is next to a very noisy bar that plays music until midnight every night. Just bring some earplugs.

The facilities were poor due to no working light or hot water in the bathroom of the dorm. The breakfast was basic and the room layout left most beds with little to no space. Also the power went out on occasion.

If you're looking for a very budget option then this place is fine. The location is great for wandering around Thamel. Breakfast is a bit unappetising.

Stayed here for 8 nights... female dorm was great. Bathroom was an en suite from the dorm room with hot water and it was cleaned daily. Hostel also has a good scheme for refilling your water bottle for 10 rupees (cheap and cuts down on plastic bottle use). Laundry service was as cheap as other laundry businesses advertise in Thamel... 100 rupees per kg. The last night I was moved to the 8 person mixed dorm as a big group was arriving, this room had fewer windows and a smaller bathroom.

The hostel is towards the outer edge of Thamel, which is good because it's a lot quieter than other hostels in the center. Cleanliness could be better, but the value is great.

This hostel was a great first stop amongst many over the coming year, the location was a little hard to find but once I spotted the A1 business centre it was easy to find. The location is great and it is right in the heart of thamel where there's alot going on. We met so many nice people at the hostel who were also on their travels. The price was really good, and breakfast included was definitely an added bonus. Great place and I would stay again.

Super friendly and helpful staff. Room fairly comfortable and adequate for price. Excellent location in Thamel and probably a little quieter than places on the main roads. Would definitely recommend staying here when visiting Kathmandu.

Awesome place for the price you pay, location is great and the free breakfast is killer. Staff are amazing, Krishna was a massive help organising day trips, booking buses and helping out around the hostel, best place for backpackers in Kathmandu
