    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 !

    Fireflies is a cheap hostel in Kathmandu. At NPR 290 a night for a bed in the 12-room dorm, this is a steal! For the price, I think this is a great option if you are ok with bare bones accommodation and have a tight budget. The staff is kind and helpful. It could use some sprucing up, especially in the bathrooms and it could use a few more places to charge phones etc (without running cables precariously all over the dorm room floors). All in all, value for the money!

    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.

    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

    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.

    There are murderers in nicer prison beds than what I paid for. There was more mould the paint on the walls. Disgustingly dirty. One guy checked out of my dorm at 5:30am to catch a bus, a girl checked in an hour later and was given his used bed with unwashed duvet, linen, etc. Staff member also lit a cigarette in the dorm. Awful, felt like I was staying in an air raid shelter crossed child’s bedroom and i think I sleeping on a moving belt sander would have been more comfortable. Cheap drinks tho.

    Disgusting and gross. The toilet seat was FILTHY. There was urine ON the toilet seat along with some disgusting pubic hair. The dorms are super crammed. If someone’s talking anywhere in the property, you can hear everything loud and clear. Nobody had the decency to keep their voices low and a random boy (one of the staff) cane in the middle of the night and switched on the light for no reason. It was a girls dorm, luckily I woke up and asked him to leave. Who knows how long he’d been watching!
