    BEST HOSTEL I’VE EVER BEEN IN, for sure! One of the best parts of being in Nepal was this hostel. I just felt so secure, cozy and helped by everyone arround the hostel. Atmosphere was always great, food was super nice and not expensive. Location was AMAZING, you can feel relaxed in the middle of Kathmandu which is quite difficult as it is a very crowded city; so it’s the perfect oasis in the middle of the caos. THANKS YOU!!!! Also a really good place for female solo travellers #keepupgirls

    A very friendly and helpful staff. A great location at the corner of the tourist area - you can chill out in the amazing garden with hammocks at the hostel, it's so quite and peaceful and then go discover all the tourist attractions that are just a step away from the hostel. The hostel also has a cheap and great quality restaurant with Nepalese and world cuisine. I stayed at the deluxe ensuite and the room was great, the shower could have some renovation though. I will go back there for sure!

    Best breakfast I have had since arriving to Nepal 3 weeks ago! My friend ordered a second breakfast it was so good. Manis was the most sweet Nepalese man from Pokhara who works there. So attentive and just a sweetheart.

    Hostel location good, staff friendly, atmosphere a little quiet (perhaps due to people rather than setup). Bathrooms a bit run-down in the dorm floor, and the water heater smelled like gas when running... not the best when in a small area. Maybe just motivation to keep your showers short. All that being said decent value for money aside from storage being on the higher side vs. neighboring hostels.

    We stayed in the private room, at first look the hostel looks awesome but the beds are super uncomfortable, the walls filthy dirty and the toilets very small. But the location is good and the food is really nice
