    This hostel is the best hostel i've ever stayed. The reception service is opened 24 hours and the guys in the reception were so helpful and the housekeeping were so friendly and kind and ask the guest if the bed sheets and towels need to be changed. There is a beautiful garden with hammocks to relax. The food and coffee is so good. :)

    Great room, beds and excellent location - in a quiet, well positioned street in the beginning of Lakeside. Small lockers provided in the room to lock away personal items, otherwise no other security. Breakfast (not included) was good, well priced. Staff were a mixed bag - one of the guys was superb - really friendly and helpful - but a couple of the others weren’t great - very apathetic, uninterested and not helpful, which is a shame. Still, a great hostel for a chilled atmosphere in Pokhara.

    Nicely located close to the lake, some cafes and shops. Staff is helpful and friendly and the overall atmosphere is very nice. You got a campfire every evening, where you can chill with fellow travellers, which is quite cool. Apart from that, the facilities are not too special, but functional (except for the wifi which did not work for most of the time). Furthermore, you don´ t spend too much money for it. All in all a very good hostel with some potential for additional improvement.
