There is no word to describe this place; it's somewhere between "family" "friends" and "home"...this is actually how everyone in that hotel made us feel like. Yes, the room was clean, cozy and the bed was very comfortable. There is A/C, hot shower, TV with English channels and a cute rooftop terrace where you can eat some good food for...

The hotel staff was incredible and the owner takes great pride in his place. After facing absurd charges on a trek from another company, the hotel staff came through and got us a fair deal. The dorm rooms were nicely organized and very safe. We made quick friends with our roommates. The restaurant on the top floor has a decent...

Good location in the heart of Thamel area. Quiet lane from the bustling streets. Staff are pleasant although we had 1 occasion, the cleaning staff opened our room without knocking and while we were taking a nap. Breakfast was provided but because the rooftop breakfast area is small with only 4 tables, sometimes it's full. But you can order breakfast...
