    Superb

    HOT showers WARM (and comfy) beds CHILL vibes One of the best hostels I've ever happened upon. I awoke every morning and joined a meditation / yoga session on the hillside of Monkey Temple, literally within sight from my hostel bed, per the recommendation of the staff. It is an oasis away from Thamel, which is still within walking distance. The staff is incredibly kind, helpful, and welcoming. And, spoiler alert, there are turtles. It broke my heart to leave. 100% recommended.

    Fabulous

    The staff were really lovely but not always easy to find. There is hot water in the showers, via an unusual lever at the back- you may need to be shown this. The hostel in general is a bit cold and it really is an annoying distance from Thamel. However it is near the monkey temple and it is easy to jump on a bus (20 rupees) to the airport. Breakfast was good but not always enough for a hungry traveller. The roof top seating area is a nice place to chill and the WIFI is really great here.
