For 2 nights we stayed at Maya's and Dipak's house. They are a lovely family who made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped through the door. They are always in for a chat, offer great food and are happy to give tips about Kathmandu. The room is nice and the bathroom has everything needed. Just be aware that sometimes the nearby police school practice their music instruments, but you will get used to it.

Maya and Dipak and their daughters are a lovely family. We had a great stay with them. We felt like home right after we arrived at their place. They thought us a lot about nepali life and culture. Maya`s cooking is very good and she also prepare breakfast for us. Maya helped us to organize taxis, where to go or what to do, she has a lot of good travel tipps for us. She also saved the birthday of my girlfriend with a birthday cake as a surprise. We can highly recommend their place to everyone. We would definitely love to stay again with them when we come back to Nepal. You are great hosts. Thank you so much! :-)

Staying at Maya and Dipak's home was a breath of fresh air. It's a beautiful home and a beautiful family. Maya and Dipak taught us a lot about Nepali culture and went out of their way to help us figure out transportation, provide delicious tea and food, and a very comfortable home stay experience. There's good wifi and the bed was very cozy and comfy!

Maya and Dipak have a lovely home and a lovely welcoming family. After a long journey their house was exactly what was needed for some good rest and relaxation. Maya's cooking is first class and she was more than happy to cater to the needs of my husband and I who are both vegan. The location is really good. It's a descent walk to Thamel but an interesting one. It's in a very calm area and that's a real bonus after a day or two walking around the city centre. Hot showers, fast wifi, clean and comfortable beds. What more could you ask for. We would like to praise Maya and Dipak on running such a lovely Airbnb and making us feel so welcome in their home. Staying here again for us would be a very easy decision to make.

Very nice journey at Dipak and Maya's place, very quiet (except the first morning due to music school rehearsal), otherwise we really enjoyed our 3 days there. Maya and her two daughters (Dipak was in business travel) joined us during these days, explained a lot about Nepal, culture, political situation, traditions, etc... We learned how to cook the national meals (Dal bhat and mo:mo:) and we really enjoyed playing cards as well. We visited Kathmandu with them also and they arranged the taxi twice for us. The room and bathroom are comfortable, we were alone at the floor. To make it short, we appreciate being there and recommend Dipak and Maya's place. Thanks again for everything ! Mica and Aline.

It is ESSENTIAL to understand the circumstances of my trip to appreciate the quality of this airbnb experience. My decision to come to Nepal occurred 12, count them, 12 hours prior to landing in Kathmandu. No planning, no experience, no knowledge of things to do, places to see or any other background information. The trip opportunity literally landed in my lap, and I had to move fast to make it happen. Insert my communication and stay with Maya & Dipak, and I just completed a travelling experience I will never forget; it was the type of visit normally reserved for a trip that was planned months ago. Maya and Dipak welcomed me into their home and lives like they had known me for some time. They helped me with local sights, and coordinated an out-of-town stay on one of the nights. They made everything possible, and welcomed me to dine and integrate with their family experience, encouraging me to enjoy local Nepal culture and cuisine. It was simply the most wonderful shoestring, no-planning vacation far away from home I have ever taken, and I'll be returning soon. When that time comes, I plan on looking no further than Maya & Dipak's hospitality, and anticipate an even better experience the second time around, armed with a little planning and a travel partner. Thank you Maya and Dipak for making my trip the stuff of AirBnB legends!
