We stayed at Sparkling Turtle for almost two weeks. We had originally planned on only stay a few days but we liked it so much we stayed longer rather than moving to another hostel. The staff at Sparkling Turtle is very laid back, friendly, available, and eager to help you out. They don't nag you about payment (you can tab everything up at the very end if you want) and they make the most excellent breakfast in the mornings (included!). The burgers and Dalbat were also simply amazing, props to Mote and the rest of the kitchen staff. Raj and Oneal were also awesome guys, they helped our group out with directions (writing them down on cards for us), gave us tips on taxi prices and other things to get around the city. They were very accommodating with opening the gate at night if we came back late and were very responsive to any need we had. I highly recommend this place, it's within walking distance to the Swayambuht monkey temple and the ring road so you can get around to any place with a bus or taxi for very cheap. Definitely recommend getting as much food from their bar as possible. The internet was also very fast and this place has power generators so there was always some electricity
great place, really glad we chose it
