    The staff is incroyable, always there to help at anytime of the day or night. The atmosphere is nice and the food is not to expensive. All the shops are really close, like 2 min walk ahha so it is perfect to enjoy the day, to buy some fruits, going to a restaurant or cafe, etc. I really recommend this place :) thanks guys for your help !

    The staff was excellent. I had some minor police problems (I got robbed) and they were very supportive. They walked me through the whole process with a smile. The only thing that turned me off about the experience was the incessant drug/gangster atmosphere of the restaurant. I don't blame the staff for this, I mean what can they do, really, without reliable local help? I hesitate to mention this simply because the staff to a person gave themselves to make me feel welcome . Rahoul & Dolma esp.

    This is the main place I stay in Kathmandu because it is so cheap. If you are looking for really fancy services and comfy beds, no bugs crawling around this is not your place. I like it here but it is not my most liked hostel. The location is slightly on the edge of Thamel so takes a while to walk into the actual centre but it is right next to other popular hostels. If you don't care too much about cleanliness or soft beds then I do recommend.

    I showed up around 1 am and the staff was very helpful and welcoming. However I requested an all female room and was not provided one-it seemed like they only had female only rooms if it worked out with who was staying. I stayed for three nights and this didn’t feel like a place where you met a lot of people, but it was fine for just sleeping. They also don’t lock the doors while your sleeping or for the day. It’s located down an empty alley, for solo travelers wanting to stay out late not ideal

    Very dirty, I am amazed I didn't get sick. Staff didn't know what they were doing: couldn't read a passport, told me it didn't matter that the lockers don't lock, randomly took away our multi-plug for our room... The so-called 'atmosphere' was just a cacophony of phlegm and an aroma of mildew.

    The entire place is just a dump. The bathroom is really what did it for me. Pissy s**t smeared toilet seats, no toilet paper and very dimly lit. Unbelievable amount of mold in the shower. The linens felt greasy and dirty. Small key lockers but all of the keys were missing. No atmosphere or potential for any. Staff was happy to give me a refund though.
