            Comfortable Stay”

            I recommend Zen Bed and Breakfast. Room was neat and clean, silent (away from night clubs), nice view from roof top, plenty of restaurants nearby, bus transportation nearby, polite staffs, reasonable price, and mineral water. Beyond the expectations and staffs always ready to help with trip around.

            hidden in the thamel alley, but if you're looking for a room for just sleep and leave your bag behind then it is the right place. room is nice but no hot water in the shower, for just 3-5 dollars/night, its acceptable. friendly staff too.

            Moved by staff to different location”

            When I arrived to check in at Zen they didn't have a room available for me, so they moved me to a different hostel they also have nearby. But it wasn't nice. it was right next to a bar playing loud music until very late and it was not very clean. Staff was friendly but I wouldn't recommend if they move you to other location (I don't know the name)

            great location, great owner!”

            first time to kathmandu and the staff offered a pick up service so it was cool, i was glad to meet the driver at the airport and asked him to drop me first to the tourism board to get my trekking permit (it was almost closed). he even lend me rupees as i havent exchanged my currencies to pay the permits. the last day i stayed i got to meet the owner, he was really friendly to all customers, right in the thamel but you get the silence at nite, so it was great!
