    I stayed at this hostel multiple times during my visit to Nepal. The place is great for both meeting people and enjoying your alone time. The facilities were always clean and the location is excellent: right around the corner of the busy streets of Thamel but not right in the middle. Above all, the staff is one of the friendliest, most helpful and most professional in all around Nepal. All together a good stay, would recommend!

    Thanks Anna for leaving us such a wonderful review. We are glad that you loved our services, our dedicated staff will be pleased to learn of your high praise. They work very diligently and it will provide them with great encouragement to keep doing what they are doing. Yakety Yak would love to host you again.

    Great place in the heart of Thamel. ”

    The hostel is new and well kept. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Food is good and fairly priced(exept breakfast oprtions). The two things I think should be upgraded are putting real doors in the showers (there is only a curtain) and also more fans in the room, there were only 3 fans in a 16 bedded dorm.

    Bit expensive for what it is, there are much cheaper options to be found in Thamel. That said it is nice to have such a clean space, and a proper towel especially if just gotten off the plane or about to get on one. Breakfast is ok, a few options, but takes a while to arrive. Would stay again if only for one night.

    Center of the thamel, very easy to get around to the major attractions. Staff are helpful and kind. Hot shower and fast wifi. Only downside is that because it is close to the main shopping street, it might be noisy in the evening. People who prefer quiet environment might want to think twice.

    All was good. It would have been good if the property could provide a lock for the locker against a refundable deposit. That becomes crucial while travelling alone and staying in hostels.

    Fantastic”

    I had been in Nepal for over a week and this was the first place I got a hot shower after a whole week. The facilities are superb and although it is quite Western-styled, it gets the job done for a bed and hot shower. I was a bit afraid about being in a 16-bed room, but there were maybe 5 people in my room and everyone was very respectful of each other's privacy. The storage lockers were huge and the bed was very comfortable for a good night of sleep. This was my last place of lodging in Nepal and after quite a few days of bad sleeping situations, this was such a breath of fresh air. Balcony view isn't all that amazing but nice regardless. The staff was super helpful as well and helped me communicate with my ride to the airport.
