While the lodge is still on the main road it is one of the last guest houses on lakeside road so there is hardly any traffic going past at night time (It is past freedom cafe). The rooms are clean, and cozy and simple. All the rooms have great balconies overlooking the lake. The roof top has a large area to spend time hanging out doing nothing. The room price is good and cheap fitting in with the backpackers budget (500rp). the family is lovely and friendly and are always ready to help you if there is any problems/ questions that you may have.
We stayed some nights in the rooftop room in Hamlet Lodge which was a delight in the tourist-crowd of Pokhara. This place, situated Lakeside North is a clean and cheap place to enjoy some days nearby the lake (500 Rs/ night for a room with attached bathroom and balcony!) in a relative silence. You don't get to see much the owner or other guests but this guarantees as well a certain tranquility.
The place is over the "9 hill tours" run by the same owner so you can book your bus tickets there (cheaper than in town) and other activities/services if needed. Although we had some technical issues in the room (some plugs not working, half-broke toilet) the place still is very clean, has hot shower when sunny, working wifi, weird-retro-cave decorated yet simple and cosy.
There are so many places around that are more expensive and very very crappy, that we couldn't feel luckier to find this place!
