Other Things to Note

I wish you will simply love the stay in my house. Have a nice Journey!!
No house rules are different than your own house but still some of the things that you need to consider:
1. As the private room is on the top floor with a huge terrace, if you smoke outside the room on the top floor will be highly appreciable. I have little daughter so I don't want her to become passive smoker.
2. Please do inform us in advance if you would like to have dinner/meals at home as it takes time for preparation.
3. As Nepal has loads of power cuts and we run on backup inverter batteries, charging or using heavy duty electrical appliances cannot be supported by the inverter so, please bear in mind that charging mobiles and laptops are only way to keep happy. During day time when there is no electricity, the Inverter are always shut down. Please ask if you need some work to be finished by day time. When there is no electricity a torch in your list would be worthwhile.
4. If you have any laundry to be done, please inform anyone in my house so that we can plug the washing machine and open the tap for your easiness. We charge 3 USD 0r 300 Rs ( Max 6 Kgs) to cover detergent and electricity cost for the laundry, which is nothing in terms of what we pay for the electricity.
5. If you are coming home late, it would be appreciated if you inform earlier so that necessary arrangements in locking the gates can be managed.
6. Outside Shoes and Sandals are not allowed inside the room and staircase. We have to take off our shoes before entering in to the house. There are shoes racks to store the shoes.
7. Since I am not taking any cleaning fees, Cleaning rooms and bathrooms for next use depends upon your own attitude.
Pawan made me feel very welcome at his home. My room was nice and comfortable, and the outside balcony offers a great view of the city.
I booked one night only, but Pawan was nice enough to let me pay in cash for an extra night. He does not charge anyone for eating dinner at his house, either, and his wife makes excellent dal bhat!
This is a great place to stay if you're in Kathmandu. Pawan is informative, and will give you all the knowledge you need. He also set up my bus ticket, and got me a cheap taxi ride, as taxi drivers often try to hustle foreigners here in Nepal.
Leider kam die Reise aufgrund der Erdbeben nicht zustande, ich hoffe aber, dass sich das im nächsten jahr nachholen lääst. Der Kontakt (oer Mail) mit Pawan war sehr angenehm, so war er bereits im Vorfeld bei etwaigen Fragen zur Stelle und informierte uns von sich aus vor geplanten Antritt der reise über alles wissenwerte rund um den Aufenthalt in seinem Haus und Kathmandu/Nepal.
Pawan has absolutely set a very high standard for other hosts. He was most helpful in not just providing me information before my arrival, but throughout my entire stay in Nepal. He practically helped me planned and arranged my entire journey. His recommendations were all genuine and good. Pawan is truly trustworthy and I will definitely recommend him or his place to any of my friends visiting Kathmandu. The room is clean and most comfortable. Location is also ideal for your stay in Kathmandu.
Pawan was the most welcoming and warm host that we could have hoped for. He was very accommodating and thoughtful and seems understanding and interested in the individual traveler's story and circumstances. Everything was clean and ready for our arrival. He has clearly worked hard to put together an extremely valuable and detailed guide that would assist any foreigner around the city. We are recommending his place to any of our friends who want to travel to Kathmandu. Thank you Pawan for a cherished local experience!

About the Host, Pawan
Hi! My name is Pawan and you can call me "Pouen" and I am associated with a community NGO since 2000 in Nepal. Originally, I am from Central East part of Nepal where my ancestral belongs to. Currently I am leading a NGO called Synergy Foundation in Kathmandu. I have almost traveled Asia, USA, South America and Europe during my work. My hobby is to travel. I have traveled almost 75 % of rural Nepal. I have been accommodating so many friends from American and European universities and assisting their thesis work as well. I have joined airbnb to fund raise for my Foundation so that each earnings goes to the quality education of children from marginalized communities. I hope you guys will be a part of this good cause as well. I make time to talk to my guests and offer help / advice when needed.
