Stayed here for two nights after going to Everest Base Camp. I had stayed at two hitels prior and this was by far the best. The rooms are modest but good for the price. The staff and location are excellent. Highly recommened.

Spent a few days here recently on my first trip to Nepal. The staff were helpful friendly and arranged a day tour of temples and a short Trek for me during my stay. They recommended eating places when I asked. The rooms are big and have everything you need. Taking into account this is a budget hotel, it's hard to... More

At the time of my stay there was no generator so blackouts were frequent. The structure is run down. The antenna and the wi-fi had occasional troubles. The personnel has always been very... More
