This is my second visit to the hostel and i have to say its value for money representation to the fullest.

The staff are attentive, the rooms cleans and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming.

Highly recommended for singles and couples alike!

Ghan, the hotel manager, is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about Nepal trekking and sight seeing. He helped me find a budget trip to EBC, Chitwan National Park, and Pokhara. The staff is great and hostel is clean, comfortable, and cheap.

Ghan the boss really took care of me when I stayed here. He helped me coordinate my trek plans as well as introduce me to some good people in the community.

I stayed at Happily over a week and they cooked me an egg and toast with coffee every morning for breakfast. The price is great and the place sits right in the middle of all the action ( but tucked into its own corner) in Thamel. They also have private rooms if you are more of a private person as myself.

The rooms don't have air conditioning so you will have to get a fan. When I go back to Nepal I will definitely be staying a few nights at Happily.

Happily ever after hostel was surprisingly cheap for what it was. I stayed in a clean 8 bed dorm that included breakfast in the morning whilst being very centrally located within Kathmandu's busy central district. You could walk wherever you wanted from there whether it be the monkey temple (swayambudnath) or the garden of dreams. Would stay again for sure

Initially I was let down a bit by this place as it felt slightly dodgy. Now that I think about it though, it was one of the most memorable hostels I've been to. The receptionist was very helpful in arranging the paragliding in Pokhara. And I met a wonderful woman on the rooftop whilst having breakfast, so nothing to complain about really.
