Stayed here for a few days in february 2015. Staff were very friendly, food delicious, big menu, and was away from the touristy area which i enjoyed. Great rooftop for sun bathing, good place to relax in a big city. Narayan nicest guy in the world.

The Sparkling Turtle is an amazing Hostel! I spent two weeks there and thoroughly enjoyed my stay! It is very close to Thamel which is the main area of Kathmandu, it is also very close to the incredible Swayambhunath (Monkey Temple).
The staff are amazing! Narayan has a great knowledge on anything tourist. Ganesh cooks a great breakfast and is great fun, and Mote, also an amazing cook is great fun and his flute playing is awesome :)
10/10 will be staying again when I'm next in Nepal :)!!

I was there as a part of a group. The guys are very friendly and it really feels like at home. The food is very good and the toilets are clean. The hostel is close to world heritage site Swayambu monument.
