Relaxing hotel for backpackers. Stayed one night after arrival, went on a spontanious 5day trio to the annapurna region the following day. The hotel arranged everything: stored some of Our luggage, recommended a guide and arranged all transport. Got a cheaper price om bungy through the hotell(75$). Good breakfast!

We used the Nepalaya as a base for our time in Nepal. We enjoyed the friendly staff and the beautiful roof top garden/restaurant. Our rooms were always clean, and the beds were small but comfy. We definitely look forward to returning to see our new friends!

We had to change rooms three times as the first room we were given had a giant hole in the wall and would have been freezing at night. The second room we were in was fine for the first night but then the power decided to stop working (at first we thought it was the power outages but after it being off all day we told reception). The last room we stayed in was nice but the shower was horrible and ended up showering in the second room in the dark just so we could get a decent shower. I have to say though through all this the staff were very friendly and as accommodating as possible but I didn't really see the value for money.

I stayed for 1 night in Dec with my family of 5. Room was clean but it was a bit too chilly for us as we travelled from Asia. Europeans will be ok with the weather. It is in the centre of Thamel and staff are very helpful and friendly and with a lift to take you up 6 floors. Breakfast was ok and it is served at the roof-top! All in all it is a cheap, affordable hotel worth your money.
