I arrived to this hotel due to Lonely Planet recommendation for budget hotel. same like all budget travelers. the room are cheap but dark and dirty with a bed smell. you can find more expensive one that are better. the food is not so bad but not more then that.
the staff is really not nice. when we asked them to smoke outside while eating, they laugh and intentionly came closer.
but the worst thing there was the manager, Bodha, who arrange the trips for north Sikkim. he is too griddy and a layer!
he charged us much more then other agencies and gave us really bad accommodation, with cold shower ( it was too cold up north).
the problem is that because of Lonely Planet recommendation, all tourist go there first , and it is very difficult to find a group of tourist to fill a shared Jeep which lower the price per head .
he was changing the price at the morning we planned to go, and overall he doesn't really care about anything, just the money.
north Sikkim is an amazing wild place, don't give it up.
