I've stayed here multiple times. Paknajol is a good option if you want to be close to central area/Thamel but away from the madness! Garden House have a nice garden and rooftop for some quiet downtime and it's away from the street noise and chaos of Thamel.
The staff are great - relaxed, friendly and helpful with booking flights, changing money, getting around etc. They are very honest and straight - for example they were very up front and will tell you it's cheaper for you to get your laundry done elsewhere!
The rooms are clean and cheap and the overall room standard is just ok. i.e expect clean rooms and bathrooms but it could probably use a new paint job kind of thing! Actually over the time I have stayed there (I come to Kathmandu twice a year for 2-3 years) it has got cleaner I think. They won't clean your room every day unless you ask.
The curd, muesli, fruit breakfast is good! But food wise I'd tend to eat out for lunch dinner unless I was very comfortable reading in the garden. You'll probably find cheaper "local" restaurants but generally food prices are ok and cheaper than tourist orientated restaurants though with less selection.
So in summary if you are on a budget and looking for something near Thamel that is well priced, this is a good pick.
