Amazing location. Brand new hostel so everything very clean and to a high standard. If anything, they've over done it on the security. Need a key card to get through almost every door in the building - don't ever let it leave your side or you're screwed!

Hi there! Thanks for leaving your thoughts - we're super glad you enjoyed your stay (yep, we work around the clock to keep the building spick and span - thanks for noticing!). Security is super important to us and our guests - I hope you never forgot your key! (but it's ok if you did because our amazing staff are here 24 hours a day to help!)

They have a seriously good common area. Pool table, bar and even a pool on the balcony area - what more could you want? Rooms are large but the only downside is it's very hard to find. Even armed with the address and google maps my taxi driver took forever to find it - as did every other taxi we got.

Great hostel where the staff really make it, they're all great fun and very helpful, they remember your name even if you've been away trekking for 2 weeks. Always stay here now when passing through KTM. Located 2min walk outside the madness of Thamel and near the departure point of the tourist buses to other parts of Nepal. It may be a tad basic but it's Nepal after all and this place is now one of my favourite hostels I've ever visited. Highly recommend!!

This hostel is all about location. Couldn't be more central if it tried and good public transport links on its doorstep. Rooms are a bit small but large common area to hang out in. Staff are cool too.

Only a 10min walk from the train and bus station. Comfy beds, quick WiFi and a large communal area to hang out in. Staff were friendly but the onsite cafe was limited and pricey but that's no biggy given the sheer volume of restaurants on offer around the city.

More capsules than lockers so had to leave my valuables just lying in the corridor. Communal showers which some may not like. A long way out from the cities main attractions but close enough to Metro station.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Rooms were very spacious and the beds very comfy. En-suite facilities were excellent and clean. Whilst not a central location it is in a very cool and touristy area of Tokyo. On a direct metro line to Shibuya and only 1 change required for Shinjuku. Best of all were the staff who were very friendly and helpful! Highly recommend!

Thank you for your nice comment and review!!! We are so happy to hear that you had a good time in Tokyo!! Shibuya and Shinjuku is fun but not so safe and noisy for stay. But we have a nice direction to there and calm and safe at night!^^ And we hope you enjoyed sight seeing in Asakusa!! See you again soon!!

You really couldn't wish for a better location. Rooms are a good size but the WiFi was the slowest I encountered in all of China. Large roof top terrace which could be put to better use but the main draw here is the location.

One of the best hostels I have stayed at. Large courtyard with pool table and bar - great place for meeting people. Food was also fantastic. Dorms were large and beds comfy. The staff were also great. Also right by the bus stop if you're moving on to Kunming afterwards.

Nice hostel. Little bar area and pool table and the food is ok. Great location just outside the madness of the town centre (which is only a 5 min walk away) only downside is the bunks were very hard! Staff were helpful with directions and onwards bookings.

Brilliant hostel. Staff are great and very helpful. Superb location right by the park. Nice mix of travellers, young and old. Rooms are basic but clean and the courtyard itself is great for hanging out and meeting people.

Owner was a great help, the bus we needed to get was fully booked so he went around a couple of bus stations himself until he found a local bus that had spaces. Great service!
