To be clear, this rating is based on English speakers looking for a homestay experience. If you are simply looking for a budget bed or if you speak Tibetan, this could still be the perfect place for you. I wanted to be sure to review this hotel here because there were a number of things I read on TripAdvisor that...

Good location, friendly staff. The restaurant had a broad menu and similar to other restaurants, but the Momos here are the best in Tibet (per my limited tasting in several places). The restaurant was a mix of tourists, locals and even monks; so that was cool. Probably best to use your own bath towel as the one they provide leaves...
