Hassle free with great supportive staff and superb location, it is located in a safe area and in the heart of the top attraction sites. The staff are friendly people and very accommodating. The driver who took me to the airport is equally as nice. The bedroom is small but contains the basic necessity- a comfy bed, desk, chair etc....

Obviously you're getting what you pay for. The rooms are small and the shared bathrooms don't have hot showers but that's Nepal. The rooftop is the best part which we loved. However the restaurant was never ever open so that was annoying in the morning. If you do stay here don't book on hostel world or whatever just turn up...

Rudimentary establishment .. Friendly and helpful host but very basic. The host will let you charge your phone etc at reception during the power cuts on his battery charger. Whilst we were there we had no power one night and both nights only lukewarm water. The bed was also rock hard and very uncomfortable.. Ask for extra blankets if you...

The 2015 earth quake hit when we were driving with our car near Durbar square, collapsing houses made our car trapped in a small road for hours and even over night till next day. Though we were not guests in the Golden Gate Guest house at that time, the friendly son provided us food, water and other things we needed...

The guest house is very well positioned between the main Durbar square and the Taumadhi square. The roof top has good views. The entrance in situated in a quiet little courtyard. The rooms were clean but both the room and bathroom require a little attention, a few lights didn't work and fixtures were broken. The receptions staff were always friendly...

The guest house is located at the back of Shiva Guest House. Its cheaper compare to Shiva's room rate and I like the location because its quiet and few steps away from Durbar Square. The owner suggested us to visit Changgu Narayan temple by walk. Oh by the way most of the time they have hot water for shower. I...

The location is good and the room is also OK for staying. Anyway I like one of the male receptionist because, he is really good at oral English and probably the best one I have ever met in Nepal during my 14 days trip. What should be noticed is that the tower seems not so clean to use, you'd better...

We stayed at golden gate as part of a volunteer group. They housed over 40 people for 3 nights and their service was fantastic. The rooms are basic but have plenty of charm, however some rooms don't have an ensuite and the beds are typically hard. The showers are solar powered and hot water is not always available but that...

Golden Gate Hostel is located perfectly for exploring Bhaktapur. Our room was quiet, nice and as good as clean. However, the hostel still owes us 500 Rupees. That's why I'd highly recommend to be alerted when paying. Have either the exact money or double check how much money you really gave them. Otherwise, it's a decent place for one or...
