Quite simply, you can find better rooms for cheaper elsewhere. They have no generator, so you are often left in the dark. No hot water whatsoever, so if you plan on showering during your stay in Kathmandu, I suggest looking elsewhere.
The staff is incredibly friendly and the atmosphere is great. The staff are also a bit flaky and forgetful.
If you are looking for a great environment outside of Thamel and you don't care about the above concerns, I would recommend it!
