The bedroom i had was satisfactory but the hostel is not as clean as implied in the reviews. Khem the manager, was very keen for me to write my review in his presence and i just don't like the way i felt under pressure. It didn't have a genuine feel about it as other hostels have and i didn't feel he was as helpful as the reviews stated unless you were buying tours from him, if you suggested you wanted to look around he was obviously disgruntled. The noise overnight was quite loud, i could barely sleep and the linen was a bit stained. I chose to stay elsewhere on my return which was a better choice.
Pros: good garden and great views from terraces. Although not in Thamel it is a close enough walk.
