I stayed here at the beginning and end of a trek (I didn't choose it, the trekking company did). The first night I had a terrible room on the ground floor; the water lasted about 1 minute then dried up from the shower, the water from the tap was brown, the emergency lighting (necessary in a city that has no mains electricity 16 hours a day) was useless (I packed using a head torch because the lighting was so inadequate) and everything was grubby. On my return I was in a room on the second floor which was fine; I had hot water whenever and for as long as I wanted it, the emergency lighting was great and the room was clean and functional. My advice - check which room they're offering you before staying.
Location's good - right on the outskirts of Thamel and a safe walk to everywhere. Breakfast is overpriced - walk into Thamel for something half the price and just as good.
