    Staff was friendly, our bathroom was pretty gross though. Bedrooms were cold and AC worked well. Cafe above hostel had great food and was reasonably priced. Near bridge to access the other side of Ganges. Walkable location.

    The staff were really nice and helpful! It was nice that they had some activities like henna and live music on the roof one night. But the best part, is that they have a rescued dog! The beds had individual lights and plugs which was great, but the bed wasn't so comfortable and I felt that in general, the hostel needs some maintenance. But it was. A good experience and would stay there again.

    Very Good

    We stayed in a private room. Air con did not work very well and was extremely loud. Room was spacious and bathroom was clean. They offered to clean our room half way through our stay. The cafe food was average, but very cheap so fair. The rooftop is nice but loads of flies and not a good view. On the Saturday night they had music which was average but still provided a good atmosphere. Laundry service was really good and prompt. Common area is nice and relaxed with air con. Location is good.

    Pros: good beds, big spacious dorms, no AC shutdown during day, activities (tours/day treks) with decent prices. Cons: located next to a really busy road, inside a concrete jungle, no kitchen use allowed.

    Shabby property overall. Quite disappointing, being a Zostel. Staff are a hit and miss. Private rooms are over-priced for the kind of quality offered. Not recommended.
