    The food is excellent as well, and very cheap. A short walk into the city and very peaceful. The rooms are great. The staff were very nice, and I did meet some other cool travelers.

    I had a wonderful stay at Sparkling Turtle. The perfect spot to adjust to life in Kathmandu-- welcoming, warm, and secure. Bishal was super kind and helpful. The chef too, and he cooks delicious food at and affordable price. I appreciate both Bishal and KP for their day trip advice. The rooftop offers beautiful views of the city and Swayambhu, just a 5-min walk away. For early risers, joining the morning joggers, laughing yogis, and sleeping monkeys at Swayambhu/Buddha Park is a special time.

    Awesome time! Especially if you want quality hostel individuals and quality hostel staff. Situated from Thamel but only a 30minute walk from the centre of bars and restaurants- it’s clean, calm and comfortable. Hostel has lovely artwork and a sweet cafe up top. Morning walks to monkey temple are a must as well as an afternoon chai on the rooftop. Yeeee beauty. Thank you to Bishal and the crew. Much love

    Everything is great... Even though price is surprisingly cheap, decent breakfast is included. On the second floor, hot water is available. Location is a bit far from the central area but it'd be good walking for you(40 mins) タメルストリートからは少し遠いですが、歩けなくもないです!この値段でこの施設と朝食付きはは破格!おすすめです!

    A nice hostel, away form the hustle and bustle of Thamel area. It's a relatively easy walk into town or a short taxi ride. Cheap tasty food in the kitchen until 9pm, especially the momos. Staff are very helpful with booking things and directions.

    This is a nice and friendly hostel. I’ve been very well welcome. It is closed to the monkey temple so that’s great for the early birds who want to visit this amazing place. It is a bit outside the city center but, I have appreciated to find some quietness over there compared to the very busy and noisy city center.

    Great guy working there who looked after us. Location is out of the centre of Kathmandu but I preferred this. It's also walkable so no need to get taxis to the main area of Thamel if you want to go.

    Place was nice and comfortable. The staff was great. The location is a little far from Thamel but that means there is less noise at night. Great place to stay.
