    Gauri Shankar’s team, dhanyabaad! Almost 2 weeks with you and it felt like being home with brothers! The ambiance is relax, with a peaceful garden to enjoy a good book or the fire at night. Rooms are super clean, beds are comfy, and the hot shower is very pleasant after a trek. Very good location too to enjoy lakeside area

    I had such a great stay here. The place is super conveniently located to and from the Main Street Pokhara. And for the price, the facility (charging points are my lifeline) and the beds are soooo comfy. After a 12 day hike I really needed a big comfortable bed. And the staff is so friendly, especially Pramod, the manager made my stay so easy and we connected over a couple of beers and shared stories of our travels. Highly recommended!

    It’s a really chilled out hostel with a good atmosphere, good if you’re travelling alone. The staff are all very helpful and relaxed. Only issue is the doors to the rooms don’t lock but you can put valuables in lockers so not a big problem.

    Great stay location is perfect loads of nice bars and restaurants next to it, beds are large and comfy and the sheets are always clean and you get towels on checkin each room has a locker for you valuables, the showers are hot and good power, needed after trekking! Stayed in a female only dorm and the only disappointment was the bathroom didn’t appear to be cleaned daily, 4 western girls in one bathroom that toilet paper bin needs to be emptied daily, Great stay over all!
