    Best hostel I have ever stayed in. The guys that work there are super nice and super helpful and the hostel just has the most incredible atmosphere. Perfect place to chill on a hammock and rest my legs after a long trek & I met some great people along the way. It's also incredibly clean and the beds are really comfy! I already can't wait to come back!

    Amazing place. The bunk beds were fantastic. But there was some issues with hot water in one of the bathrooms. And if you have one plus charger then make sure to carry an external 3 pin plug. International would be great. As my one plus charger does not worked easily. So I made some adjustments to make it work. Otherwise fantastic place. And you can find the cheapest Laundry there as well for Rs 120( Nepali rupee) And you can get taxi to the tourist Bus park in just 300 Nepali Rupee.

    I think is the best hostel I stay in Pokhara, I change 3 times and the place is very good. The beds are super comfortable and I can see how the staff keep everything super clean. Thanks to the staff also for always being patient with me and my friend about all we ask. I’ll definitely would stay again. PS: The view is the best!!

    We enjoyed our stay at Forest Lake, right by the Lakeside, so super close to all of the nice cafes and restaurants nearby, as well as the shops for trekking and any other general bits. It’s also far enough away from the ‘strip’ so was slightly quieter to stay on but in a good location. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only issue we had was that we saw a few cockroaches- one in our room and another in the lobby- this could have just been because the hostel has an open plan area.

    Very nice hostel. It's a little out of the way of the main town, but it's totally worth it to wake up and look out at the lake. Beds were super comfy and had curtains. Loved it so much I stayed an extra two nights. Would definitely recommend.

    Perfect location if you want to find somewhere more quiet but in walking distance to the lake front. Also The Juicery is not far and a good place to get breakfast.
