Youth Inn 2 is one of the cheapest places in Kathmandu.
A lot of the reviews I read about this place don't seem fair to me. We saw quite a lot of rooms and most were good enough. We're talking about 50-60,000 KIP/night for a double in Vientiane. This is about as cheap as it gets in this city and it wouldn't be fair to compare the value with what you would get in Vang Vieng for instance.
We stayed here two times, our rooms were spacious and clean enough. Changing rooms or asking for cleaning was not a problem.
They stored our bicycles and luggage for a week free of charge and the guys managing the place were nice.
+ bicycles for 10,000 KIP/day
+ fast laundry for 10,000 KIP/day
- there is no internet in the rooms, but we used our phones with Unitel
If you want to save money and you don't want to stay in a dorm. Youth Inn 2 is the place to go. We'd go back there any time.
