I arrived 2:15 pm for checking in and the reception was close. there was a note on the door saying that the were in their 'breaking time" and would be back in 45 minutes. I had to call the staff and ask them to come immediately , if not , I would chose another place as I told them that that was not acceptable for a hostel to be 'closed' at checking time.

I had such a good time in this hostel. Raymond was so nice to me. I arrived 6am in the morning from Kuala Lumpur and , even that the check in would be at 1pm he allowed me to get in . If was not lucky enough , around 6:10am someone on the hostel checked out , so, Raymond gave me room so I could have a rest. I slept until 9am. He has 3 stuff there who are really interesting people that I could have chat at night. Anyway, my experience here was great.

The location, staff and cleaness is fantastic, however the facilites are a shame. That makes this hostel more expensise than the ones in Europe or Japan. Being in a room with other 7 people with no cross ventilation and 2 noyse fans are embarrasing and a shame. That is unhealthy. This hostel needs to have a laundry. the northeast of Brazil is hot and we have to wash and dry the clothe everyday. Please readress your facilities, the price you are charging is more than in others in the world.

This hostel is quite a paradox: superb location, lovely staff but the facilities are zero AND the information is very missleading the website. When I booked and room with 4 beds I thought that the room would have 4 beds. The truth is that gettting getting there the room had 14 beds that, separated by walls it look a room with 4 BUT, please, we are inteligent: there is only one room with 14 beds ad one bathroom. Window are rusty and broken, the lockers are brokend and unsafe. NOT GOOD AT ALL

The hostel is good as long you are inside it. Unfortunatelly there is a problem on the sreet sewer just in front of the hostel. Sure it is not the hostel fault , that is the council problem, but it affects teh overall impression of the hostel as it get a very smelly entrance. Poor hostel. As I said a long oyu are iside it all ok.

Kuldeep Friends Hostel, New Delhi, India

3rd Jan 2013

This was the first place I arrived in India . Traveled around, went to Nepal, Bangladesh and when I had to go back India I came to this same hostel again . Why ? the staff is great and helpful, they were my gateway to India and helped me with taxi, travels, advice were to eat so forth. It is a very simple place, if you are not concern about luxury and a busy location this can be a great place in Delhi

The hostel is not in a touristic area, but, close enough to the metro station that will help you a lot in Kolkata. There is no WiFi connection but they allow you to use their computer with no charge. The best thing in this hotel was the staff , they help you in everything , very humble people and very assertive to the driver at the time of negotiating the best price of the taxi for you outside the hotel. Price was good and I even got discount at the end I don't know why ! I would be there again

Tropical Daisy, Dhaka, Bangladesh

This place should be called "Dhaka's Paradise", It is a great place to be in Dhaka. Don't forget there is no much urban infrastructure in Bangladesh in to find a place with fantastic hot water , the faster internet I have ever seen, cleanness great lake views it is a bless in Bangladesh. Don't forget this is the embassy areas of Bangladesh so there is more infrastructure here. BUT , for me the big asset of this place was the staff a group of helpful smart people, always friendly.

Khangsar Guest House, Kathmandu, Nepal

22nd Dec 2012

I had a great time at Khangsar. It is more a hotel than a guest house, but for me the biggest highlight is Khangsar staff. They a re a group of boys in their 20s very friendly and smart and always willing to help you. If you like a a light chat during your stay here is the place to be. The water is hot all day, but, sure, it is Nepal so no electricity all the time but the staff has a schedule of when the electricity will be cut and supplied. Great place to be.

The North Face Inn, Pokhara, Nepal

18th Dec 2012

North face Inn is more them a guest house, for me was a home. It is a ideal place if you are looking for peace and quietness. This is really a home and Raju and his family make you feel extremely welcomed. I stayed in one the outside cottages. I called it a little temple. The guest house is around 250 meters from the main road in Pokhara so, it is ideal if you want a silent place to stay. They have a fantastic guide if wanted to do a day hacking. As I said this place is a peaceful home !
