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 (nothing got stolen, so they are also safe).
The manager was available 24/7 and he helped me out a lot when I had some trouble with my bank card and an ATM. He even came with me to the bank and helped me sort out my problem (THANK YOU AGAIN).
I also booked a trip to Chitwan national park with them and it was everything they promissed and more.
They don't have electricity and hot water all day, but I think that it is a general problem in Kathmandu due to the electricity savings.
Sure, it is not for travellers that are used to a 5-star accomodation, but it is excellent value for money. I will definitely go back there the next time I am in Kathmandu!
