Very helpful and kind
Owners are extremly kind and like to help in any matter. They bring the breakfast into the room, take londry to dry cleaning or help you with the computer when you need to fill out forms. You can dry londry on their terrase, or amy time take shower with worm water. They accompany you to the direction you need in town, relly like a family.

Gopal and his wife and exceptional hosts. They were extremely helpful and personable. I originally had booked only a few days but decided to spend my entire 2 weeks Kathmandu holiday here. The hotel is close to the main areas of Thamel but is just far enough to be away from all the noise and bustle... Best of both world. The top it all off, there's a great little coffee shop right next door that serves fantastic espresso and cappuccino. I'll be back!

the best budget hotel in Thamel.
on arrival at kathmandu i stay 2 nights . after my ABC hiking trip i decided to call the boss, mr gopal to reserve another 3 nights. He and his wife who runs the hotel are remarkable people. Kind, helpful, informative and very pleasant people. i felt really very much at home staying there. fully recommended for travellers on budget. its also very close to shopping , foods ,etc. on the left side of this hotel is a restaurant called Hello Kitty restaurant. serves very good and generous portion at a reasonable price.

Exceptional service
The owner Mr Gopal is a very helpful person who will settle you in comfortably in Nepal in any assistance he can rendered to you. He will provide unconditional and accurate information on your trek information. In my case, he spent 10 mins and personally brought us to a place that we are looking for in Thamel on our first day which is quite daunting and confusing to navigate for the first few days. He also help us hailed down a local bus to get to the Gongabu bus station on the second day for our Annapurna trip. The room that we stay in was clean, without smell and plenty of hot water. We had fantastic breakfast at the rooftop every morning. I stay there for about 5 nights and he was always busy to make customers feel comfortable with his hotel. For basic amenities and cleanliness, it is worthwhile at the price but for the unconditional help that he provides, it is priceless. I will definitely come stay again when I visit Kathmandu once more.

Good people and good location
All I can say is that the family who run this place are extremely friendly and were very helpful during our stay in Kathmandu. We appreciated the recommendations on where to walk around and eat, as well as helpful trekking tips as we prepared for Annapurna Base Camp. The breakfast was delicious (coffee/tea+toast n eggs+banana porridge+freshly squeezed juice, mm) and it was a delight to get to know the family during our short stay. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a low budget spot in Thamel.
