    Fantastic hostel right in Thamel. Amazing staff, good atmosphere and easy-going chill place. Rooms and bathrooms are basic but overall very good value for money. A great rooftop terrace with a bar where you can easily catch up with other travelers, more chatty than party. Wifi a bit unstable and reception not always staffed (which was a bit annoying during a late night return)
