Reviews

when I checked in, my online reservation and confirmation could not be found. I eventually got a room with filthy linen, about 40% of the walls with fungus, 30% of the floor with water from the leaking tabs in the bathroom. No hot water for a shower. The Wifi internet connection was poor. The tour operator only opened his doors once on my arrival, after that always closed. I traveled for 5 month through South America and always stayed with HI, because of the cleanliness and the super staff.

No pude estar mas tiempo porque por la falta de limpieza tuve un problema respiratorio. Ahora vuelvo a kathmandu y tengo que buscar hotel. Estoy en pokhara y no utilice el servicio de hostelling para no pasar por la misma experiencia. Verifiquen la calidad de sus albergues y si no estan en condiciones no le den la representación. Yo fui alla x que pense que habia un esquema de trabajo bajo la marca. Veo que me equivoque

Good to have some ex-high school students as temporary staff. Job training & opportunities for them.
