We are conveniently located in baniyatar which is away from all the tourist chaos but close enough to take a 20 min microbús or 40 min walk (4.5km) to all the major attractions such as Thamel district and monkey temple. We offer authentic Nepali cuisine at our family dinner table or you can try any of the nearby restaurants. If you are unsure of what to do- we can always recommend something to fit your budget and even help you plan your next trek.

Transportation to baniyatar might seem complicated, however it is quite easy.

Hostel is well organized,run by it's Owners and their management.My stay was nice there before, Until a one of the guest dumped into my room.He was soo miserable; using my stuff without asking me; talking on phone and watching YouTube for whole days & nights with volume.I saw this kind of these before,but this guy was just sick & shameless. I felt soo uncomfortable;So,i decided to left property. Another one traveller also left the room just after 1 hour of check-in, due to felt uncomfortability

After we first arrived at the hostel everything was fine, we could stay for as long as we wanted and there was dinner, breakfast and they could do the laundry. So it all seemed good at the beginning, untill we got our first laundry bill. They expected me to pay 1400rupees for 3 T shirts, a pair of trousers, and some underwear, while they it was only 200. Also the so called free dinner was 350 and to make it even better, they just randomly kicked us out because it was fully booked.
