This place is okay except that they never have hot water even though the owner insists they do. I had three showers, two were less than luke warm and one was luke warm at best. Other travelers there said the same thing. Since the guest houses on all sides of this place always have hot water I would stay there. For instance the Katmandu Peace Guest house is very good and the two brothers who run it are very nice.
The owner of Hotel Paknajol was also very rude to me when I politely asked for hot water. In my 3.5 months total in Nepal that is the first time someone has offended me since I find most Napalis very nice. He has a smiling face (at first in order to get your business) but in reality he is not a nice person. Don't let him fool you and don't give him your business.
