    Excellent hostel. Staff are wonderful, very secure, very clean, and free breakfast. Location is a bit out of the centre but nice and quiet, right near main bus routes however.

    Such an amazing place to stay! Very clean, friendly staff, excellent location. Away from the centre of Kathmandu but easy to walk to in 30/40 minutes. Also, staff is extremely helpful and can help you figure out how to get into the city by public transit—or just about any of the main spots in the Kathmandu valley for that matter. Food is excellent, inexpensive. Thank you so much Pawan, Som, and Santosh for a great stay and for being so welcoming!

    There are no lockers and no locks on the dormitory doors which is inconvenient and the staff tried to overcharge me more than once for the room as well as the drinks I did and didn't buy. The location is also about an hours walk from the centre of town so not very convenient. I was a little underwhelmed having seen such good reviews when I initially booked.
