This place is filthy and unloved. It was the most disgusting place I ever had the misfortune of spending a night in, and I just don't accept the "well, I can't expect the same standards in Tibet that I could expect at home". There is no excuse for letting a place go absolutely to sh..t. With my predecessors' hairs in... More

Well, my experience was similar to everyone else. First, the views of Everest and Cho Oyu are stunning. The staff are friendly and the restaurant was adequate (few choices but clean). The room itself was nasty. With EBC being closed, and it being November, I don't think they were expecting to have as many guests as they did. There was... More

Ok, so you will only be staying here if you are on a tour. It is grim there is no doubt. The rooms are freezing, there is no hot water. Strike that, no water as you get a bucket when you check in to flush the toilet. The electricity only comes on in the evening. We persuaded the owner to... More

The review about “switching on survival mode and switching off the complaint button” could not be more appropriated when traveling around Tibet and Nepal. I am not saying there are no good hotels but there are not many options and depending on the city you go, it is expected to have no electricity, no hot water, no locker… The Hotel... More

When you want to travel in this part of the world you have to switch on survival mode and switch off the complain button. You have to be a bit lucky with the room you get , some are like the pictures on top taken by tourists but some are also better. If you hope to take a warm shower... More

Horrible guest house. Dirty, old, stained pillows and linen, uncomfortable beds, doors without locks, TV did not work. I could start a zôo with the animais we found in the room, coackroaches, flies, mosquitos and other unidentified flying objects. The bathroom was disgusting, even though there was warm water for a couple of hours. The egg fried rice we had... More

We stayed here one night after leaving Everest Base Camp that morning. We were on a tour with 18 others. This was undoubtably the worst guest house we have ever stayed in. Locks on doors of every room faulty restricting access. No electricity, during day time, candles required for bathroom at all times for light. Most toilets, either did not... More

We originally were booked into a hotel in new tingri and ended up in old tingri. My god what a shock to the system. While we had power all night no running water and no heating and minus 9 at night. Although where else can you wake up and walk out of your room and look at Mount Everest .... More

The rooms only has electricity in the evenings, and no heat. But very adaquate bedding to keep warm at night. The restaurant... More

This is not a good spot to stay - worst hotel I have ever been to and I have travelled a fair bit in poorer countries. After being shown room, we asked our guide and driver to drive to the next town. After a late lunch at this hotel(which wasn't too bad except for the beggars constantly coming in with... More
