The staffs there are very friendly and helpful. Location are in the center of thamel with many restaurants n shops nearby. Rooms are good and clean. The only things is the water heater can have problem sometime due to some power cut off time in that whole area. Rooftop breakfast is good. Overall, will definately go back again next time.

Great spot to meet other backpackers and a great location. Thou it is very noisy at night so don't expect a goodnights sleep.

Awesome place in the middle of Thamel. Ended up staying 3 times on my way in, out and through kathmandu. Easy to meet other travellers and the staff are always friendly and will help you out with booking treks or anything else.

Very clean! Small roof-top common area was a nice to relax, meet people and have breakfast. The wifi can not reach the rooftop, but basically the same everywhere else in Nepal... easy but nice free breakfast.

The only thing that I'd like to see change here, is for fans to be installed, as the room can get very hot and stuffy! Other than than that, a wonderful stay, thank you.

We were 3 people staying for 4 nights in a 3 bed room. The staff are great, nice and really helpful. The rooms are ok for the price but it could be better with some more space. We realized that it wasnt in all the floors but sometimes we were able to smell the bathroom next to our room. Breakfast was good.
