I have a beautiful terrace with rest chairs in front of my room. If you want to go to THAMEL to buy handcrafts is very close walking 10 minutos and also you can walk to the Indian Embassy in 20 minutos .I highly recommend this hostel.

      Staff were very helpful and kind. And seemed to always want to make sure guests are ok. No aircond in room but was cold anyway. The usual breakfast time is 7am but they prepared at 6.30am as we had to catch the early flight. Very near Thamel. And they can also arrange tours etc if you have not booked yours! Things seemed to be pretty easy to arrange even when you have just arrived! Not easy to find so better to request for hotel transport for a minimal fee.
