Very great hostel! Staff very friendly and helpful. Great place for meeting people etc they have an awesome restaurant/ bar that’s always open, so nice! The location is really nice next to the monkey temple, but a little away from the more tourist area Thamel. But we’ll worth it!

Great staff who were very friendly and welcoming. Clean rooms and common area with pretty good free breakfast! Location is outside thamel, walking distance to the monkey temple which is very fun but if you want to be close to Thamel (the touristy place) then it is a bit outside!

If you just want to chill out in the hostel for a few days this place is great. The restaurant/bar serves delicious food at a decent price and there's plenty of cushions to sit back and laze around after a trek. It's a little far from Thamel and/or Durbar though if you want to be in the action so to speak.

Staff were very friendly to me but not the same story for all guests. A little far away from the main areas of Kathmandu but the bus is very cheap to Thamel. Comfortable beds and hot showers are a luxury in Nepal so enjoy!

Nice place and staff! Place is clean, very good common area! Only problem is that it is away from the main tourist area, Thamel. But if you are fine with that, this place is the best!

the staff and the home-like atmosphere is what made us come back here at least 3 times. great spot to set up as a base while we did our excursions around nepal including everest base camp, which they totally helped us out with!! nice peaceful location a little away from the hustle and bustle which we enjoyed. a nice walk to Thamel to keep your days active. highly recommend.

Nice place! Comfortable beds. The wifi doesn't work (almost never) in the dormroom though, which forces you to sit in the mainarea. Nice staff, clean hostel!
