The whole Family was really kind and helpful, room was very nice, calm and clean. The place is quite far from the center but you have there better air ;)
FAR!!! My major complaint is distance. This is no where near the center of Katmandu, no where near anything really. Cabbies cant find it and are super expensive ($15-20 US). Busses are complicated and really long (an hour or so). Ngawang is formally accommodating, his wife is delightful. The place is clean and nice by Nepali standards. They lived in NYC for 13 years, so understand westerners. I chose his place because he offered to pick me up at the airport, but he showed up in a scooter with no room for luggage, so I had to pay $15 US for a cab anyway - so my nights stay doubled in price. There are better situated and cheaper options out there. This would only be worthwhile if you stay a very long time or if you land there to have Ngawang take you on treks. For a short visit to the city this was a terrible option. You're trapped in the middle of nowhere and you'll blow your budget on cabs.
Staying with Ngawang and his family made my Nepal visit very special. The accommodation itself is situated in a quiet and clean neighborhood of Kathmandu, comfortably located between the center of the city and Boudha. The guests room is sunny and spacious, and it has a great view on the mountains and the Kopan monastery. Ngawang and Nigma, his wife, made me feel very welcome and assisted with every thing I needed and asked.
Ngawang and his family happened to be "real" Sherpa, coming from this long tradition. I also took 6 days trekking with Ngawang, and it was an amazing experience, getting to know Nepal and the Sherpa tradition.
All together I will stay with Ngawang, Nigma, their lovely daughters and Clio the dog for about 30 days. I recommend highly staying and trekking with Ngwang and Nigma.
I hope that I came as a guest and will leave as a friend.
Namaste, Tashi Delek.
Ngawang and his family made us feel very welcome. They all speak English very well and so it was very easy chat. They were very helpful with anything we needed. I brought my children which were of similar age to Ngawangs children so they all had a great time playing together. Their house is in the suburbs of Kathmandu, with approx 20 minute taxi ride to city, (taxi's are relatively inexpensive)
I would recommend this to anyone who wants an authentic experience of Kathmandu
I stayed with Ngawang and his lovely family for only two nights unfortunately! What a welcoming and helpful host! Being picked up from the airport, offered some tea and pancakes just instantly made me feel comfortable (great after a 24 hr journey!) And all the advice on where totoo and how to get there was very helpful! His wife Nima is just as nice and so are their two lovely (and funny) daughters! I would definitely recommend staying with them, especially if you like seeing the other, less touristy side of the Kathmandu Valley! All the best to them and thanks again!
We have had a great time with this wonderful family. Ngawang and his wife Nima are great hosts, their two daughters are very nice and beautiful. They are always very helpful in all questions, thank you again for everything.
I hope we will meet later again!
I've had a great time spending my nights here! The service they provide is truly outstanding! The rooms are clean, the bathroom is superb and they help you a lot (you will need it because, for example, most of the streets in Kathmandu don't have any streetnames). I also recommend to go on a hike with them. His knowledge of the mountains did litteraly saved my life when he noticed a rockfall from above. If it was not for him, I wouldn't be sitting here writing the review. If you compare the other airbnb's in Kathmandu; this is the one you have to take. You are close to the center of Kathmandu but you have the quitness of a rural area; something you really need after spending the whole day in the madness of the buzzling city.
