I’ve stayed here 5 or 6 times now and they are always friendly, helpful, clean, and welcoming. Prices are perfect, food is tasty, and they helped set up travel plans and transport to the airport. It is easy walking distance to Thamel and all the great shops, but just far enough away that you aren’t solely surrounded by tourists.

Most convenient hostel in thamel, good taxi service, breakfast included and good guiding for best spots in city. Perfect location within thame but quiet corner, fastest way to get in and out of thamel. Nice people always helpful, they invites me tea and beer in rooftop with KTM skyline. I kept my suitcase almost 2 weeks and they looked after as It was of then.
