Well, is not the worst one but it can be better, Is not that clean neither rooms, nor livingroom, staff is not that friendly, they seem to be there just for taking ur money for tours, good thing, located in a comercial zone, with bars, shops, and restaurants

Hi, I stayed in Red Planet 3 times in March 2014 and I would always stay there again. The location was great, just a 5 minut walk to Thamel. The rooms were clean and the staff was really helpful. They helped me with good advice about places to see in Kathmandu and even stored my luggage while I was away...

This guesthouse is terrible - don't stay here! We agreed a price for two rooms for two nights with the manager and then he tried I charge us more when we checked out - shouting at us that we were wrong. Rooms are filthy - I wouldn't even let my dog stay in there. The hotel also ripped us off...

We had planned on staying at Alobar1000 since they had advertised their dorms to be the cheapest in Kathmandu but it wasnt so. They charged 450 npr per head and we were four of us. On the way back we found this hotel and asked for prices and were glad to know that it came upto 250 per head. Rooms...

The staff here are wheelers and dealers. You can find better rooms on central Thamel that will be cheaper, cleaner and quieter. We paid $12 for a disgusting room, purely because we just arrived on a long haul flight and could not be bothered to search. Do not stay here!!

I really hated my stay here. The only reason I stayed for more than a night was because I had a lot of luggage that I didn't feel like moving. The hotel is close to the action of Thamel, but in a strange location. If you're walking back after 10:30 you'll be accosted by no less than 3 prostitutes. Its...

I was very disappointed with the way in which the employees I met conducted themselves and their business. Looking to stay more than 3 weeks, I would have loved it if this place had even been ok, but it is one of the worst places I've ever been to in the world. I was given the room at the front,...
