    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.

    A nice place, friendly staff. The rooms are basic and plain but has everything you nèd although no curtains on the bed or lockers for your bags. We left out bug bags when we went on a trek for free which was really handy. Very helpful and will help you with recommendations. Communal space is outside which is okay but I always get bitten. A bit far from the main lake area but a nice 20 minute walk not too far! A lovely place to stay!

    Booked this hostel thinking it had amazing reviews and for the price and location it is reasonable. Not sure which atmosphere others have talked about- peak season stay and quiet, staff not helpful. Rooms are clean but as travelling with friends one shower and the bathroom is unusable for the other.
