The location is good and the room is also OK for staying. Anyway I like one of the male receptionist because, he is really good at oral English and probably the best one I have ever met in Nepal during my 14 days trip. What should be noticed is that the tower seems not so clean to use, you'd better...

We stayed at golden gate as part of a volunteer group. They housed over 40 people for 3 nights and their service was fantastic. The rooms are basic but have plenty of charm, however some rooms don't have an ensuite and the beds are typically hard. The showers are solar powered and hot water is not always available but that...

Golden Gate Hostel is located perfectly for exploring Bhaktapur. Our room was quiet, nice and as good as clean. However, the hostel still owes us 500 Rupees. That's why I'd highly recommend to be alerted when paying. Have either the exact money or double check how much money you really gave them. Otherwise, it's a decent place for one or...

The reason why I rate this Golden Gate Guest House as terrible is that then I wanted to pay the room they overcharged us by 500 rupees. They simply stated that we gave them less money then we did. Even after arguing the case there was not even a moment that they wanted to solve the situation. This is simply...

Stayed overnight here when I toured Bhaktapur. The room was okay for its price, clean with veranda. There's also an onsite restaurant, which served affordable food. The rooftop has a stunning view of Bhaktapur Durbar Square, especially the towering Nyatapola temple--Nepal's tallest temple.

The owners are very nice and in the low season you can bargain a little bit for the price. The common bathroom is downstairs but it's new and clean. The room was also very clean and the location in right next to Durbar Square. Perfect!

I spent one month in Bhaktapur volunteering with an NGO that encourages children's education. During that month, I stayed at the Golden Gate Guest House. The location was great, as it was near Durbar Square, which is one of the most amazing architectural squares of the valley, as it highlights the ancient arts of Nepal, so it is always very...

Location is great near Durbar Square but set back in a courtyard so less noisy. Rooms were fairly basic, bathrooms could be cleaner. Food here is good value about half the price of most restaurants nearby. Taxi to airport was reasonable price. Had 2 rooms one single with bathroom and then twin with bathroom both on 1st floor, the single...

Good location, rooms with different prices, hot water. Staff is helpful with knowledge of Bhaktapur and the area. We made a guided tour with Decent to discover "secret" places of this beautiful town. We highly recommend this hotel.

Great helpful staff who assisted us in getting bus tickets and provided us with useful information on pricing. Durbar Square is right off one of the entrances which made this extremely convenient. Room was spacious and we also had a balcony.
