    Location is solid (if you want to be IN thamel). right by all the whole scene without and noise. Actually nice quiet rooftop to sit and reflect on evening of... Whatever you've done in thamel. There were two mosquitos in my room and they are so damn fast in Nepal. Then again this is not the hostels' fault that there's standing water around. Shower hot, had a private room with good lock and key. Eat at Legendary good on the way in. The chef is.. well he lives up to the name.

    A perfect place to stay : Staff is really friendly, always someone there to help you The owner is also providing trek and others experiences you want. He will follow your plan as you wish with the money you have :) My experience : I had been in trouble with my bank cards so he helped me to solve it. Unfortunately, my flight for my trek had been cancelled twice. So we found out a new plan. This is definitely the place to stay in Katmandu for a good price, a good location.

    I have stayed here for 2 times mainly because the staff is very helpful. They can give you advice about the places you can visit in Kathmandu and even can help you with bus tickets if you want to go outside the city. All support is free of charge 😊. On top of this you will be welcomed with a delicious coffee/tea.

    Worst dorm room I have ever stayed. There aren't any individual power outlet for each of the bunk bed. There is only one power outlet near the door and it is extended through a short extension cord. Door is not lockable. Room not clean as you could wear shoes in the room. Only 3 shared toilet for all the rooms. But the twin bed room is fine. I am sure this hostel has its best time long ago. But it really need to be worked on

    Difficult to find, located in some shady mews, no lockers, dorm remains opened for everyone to walk in; stuffy, no fans or ac; filthy rooms and uncomfortable beds, everything sticky or dusty; horrible view from the windows (brick wall); no plugs close to the beds, not enough plugs for everyone in a dorm; grumpy and nosy staff; overpriced breakfas not included in a price of stay.

    it is located down a very dark alley way that is used as a bathroom (filled with human excrement), bathrooms are mouldy and smelly, shower/ taps in my private bathrooms didnt work at all. I was uncomfortable when one of the staff members was hitting on me/ trying to hold my hand, i wanted a refund/ to leave .. this was refused and my friend and i were mocked. we had already paid for 4 nights, so we later returned and found other people in our room!! they refused to help us and left us stranded
