Great location, super quiet for being in the middle of the Thamel zoo. Clean and comfortable room and 24-hour hot water, from what I could tell. Even provided me a space heater in my room, which I gather is pretty rare in those parts. Had no problems with management or anyone else trying to hustle me. It is a budget venue, so I am not sure why others gave a low review; perhaps just adjust your expectations before arriving; it is Kathmandu, it is simple, it is dirty. Be grateful for a clean, quiet room within walking distance of everything.

He pedalled past me, unable to react that quickly, and I waited until he had passed before I started walking again. He then looked back at me, as if contemplating whether to stop and wait for me to catch up to pester me some more.
I imagine this is a little bit what an attractive woman ...
... Kathmandu forms one third of the three ancient kingdom cities of Nepal. The other two namely Patan and Bhaktapur which I will be visiting after the trek.
The Kumaris (there is at least one in each city) or the Living Goddesses of Nepal had to be my first cultural shock. They are typically seven to twelve years old pre-pubescent girls rigorously chosen from a panel of young girls believed to be ...
... like a cheetah, complete with spots and everything. I later learned that there is a trend of dying dog hair that is very popular in China, so this was probably just an example of that. Still, very weird looking.
Since I didn't feel like crossing the street to continue my search for a breakfast spot, I started walking back to the embassy. On the way, I saw a place called Coffee Talk that was just a couple hundred feet down and across the street from the embassy. ...
