    Pros: Very clean and cozy place. I stayed with my wife in a private room. My brother in law stayed in mixed dorm. Dorm, rooms and toilets were sparkling clean. Host Mr Shavin was very helpful. Cons: There are no pegs or lines to hang clothes in my private room. Tea was good but little relatively high at NPR 100, compared to the outside restaurants in the Phewa Lake side. Overall: It is a very economical stay option, and you have options to have meals at many nearby restaurants.

    This hostel was the best one where we have been. The staffs were really friendly and helpful with everything. Also they cooked for us and we had a very delicious dinner and a nice evening with them. The room was really clean and nice and the beds were very comfortable. Outside there is a beautiful garden. There was nothing we would criticize.

    We stayed in a womens room with 2 bunk beds. There was a lot of noice during the night from other people in the hostel as well as the surroundings, and small bugs on the floor. It smelled a lot of mold in the room coming from the bathroom. No hot water in the shower, apparently due to there were no sun (they used sun panels?). Very damp bed sheets and the fan was too loud to have on during the night so it was very hot. No locks on the door from the outside or to the hostel entrance, so anyone could walk in
