Simple and clean, this hostel has nice basic rooms at a budget price. Great location in the backpacker district, friendly and patient staff, and cheap & tasty breakfasts. There is also a rooftop garden, hot water, and free wi-fi throughout. They can help you organise onward travel and rafting trips. It feels really safe and secure, and it's easy to meet people in the hallway/cafe area.
However, there aren't always power sockets available, due to Kathmandu's "load shedding" (this is the same as most other guesthouses), though they post a timetable of the power cuts at reception so you can plan around it. They also have back-up power so the lights and internet will work. Also, they allow smoking here, though the rooms I've had here have never had any residual smell. One thing to note is that they close up the shutters quite early at night (around 10 or 11pm), so if you want to go out late, you might need to mention it to the receptionist.
