Excellent cheap, clean room in the centre of Thamel. The staff and manager are lovely and really helpful. It has a peaceful roof top garden with good cheap food and cold beers. The room is nice and clean, hot showers and well maintained. I'll be staying here again.

A good place to stay in the heart of Thamel. You have everything around you, but you can get to other parts very quickly too. Nice and friendly staff, a comfortable room and excellent roof top terrace. Had an unforgettable time in Kathmandu. Simply go there and enjoy!

I spent 3 weeks in Bagpackers Lodge and had a good time there. The people are very friendly and helpful. They have a generator so during power cuts there is still electricity and WIFI. Also the WIFI is pretty good. All in a safe and recommendable place in Thamel.
