It was a welcoming house and was made to feel very homey and comfortable. Great hosts and helped us out with planning activities and sight seeing. All up a great experience and highly recommend anyone traveling to Nepal to stay here.
Actually this experience is not that good. no hot water；the room has a huge differences between real and images；i ve reserved breakfast at 6 and confirmed at last 3 times but when i get up and prepared to enjoy my breakfast.there is no one in kitchen and when i called him，he told me that is too early. 一句话 千万不要来住 地方超级偏远 老板也不讲信用 图片超级骗人 泰米尔又便宜又好又方便 来这里打车司机还得找半天
The house located in a very quite residential area, we slept well at night. And the hosts prepared breakfast and dinner for my friends and I, we just enjoyed the Nepali food. Everything is OK, except that there was not sufficient hot water supply. But it's a common problem in Kathmandu, most of house depend on the solar water heater to supply hot water for showering.
It was great value for money! The staff were helpful especially when we needed help in communicating with taxi drivers. Rooms were decent and clean but getting hot water in the bathroom was quite a challenge given that it was winter then. Nonetheless they helped and brought us pails of hot water when we requested. Location was good. Thamel was just 2 kilometers away.
너무너무좋았어요! 하나부터 열까지 다신경써주셨고..ㅎ편하고 재밌게 다녀왔어요!지리적위치도 좋구..카트만두를 제대로 느끼고싶다면 추천합니다!!!!!
"So so good! Gave over from one to ten cares .. heh come easy go have fun ! Geographical location is recommended if you want to feel good too .. Kathmandu properly !!!!!' This is the english version of her review.
-Thank you so much Sun, we look forward to see you again sometime soon.
The host was very welcoming and kind. but there was no electricity for most of the time, and since they have solar heater for bathing water, we never got hot water for bathing early in the morning, the wifi was shoddy, they didn't even care to clean the room for 3days. I think you can find better local hotels at much cheaper prices.
Thank you Vikas, we apologize for all the inconvenience occurred during your stay.
-The weather was not so supportive therefore you didn't get much hot water through solar heater.
-After your constructive feedback we have changed the internet subscription and now we have better WiFi. But again the seed is not in our hand. But we will always try our best to main the speed.
-Regarding the cleaning the room, it was very difficult to enter your room since you guys were most of the time out and also we all lived like a family, you should have also reminded us about it. But nonetheless we will improve on it.
-We provided you 2 videos of buggy free of cost, you forgot to mention that :P
it was very nice experience! the room was clean and comfotable. and staffs are very kind. thank you so much ^^ katmandu was a chaos to me, but not here, very compotable place! thank you ^^
About the Host, Aanand
I have a volunteer organization called Volunteer for Change (VFC) and every year lots of foreign students come to do their internship with me for Schools, HIV/AIDS affected children, Environment, community work etc. When there are no students or volunteers at our platform 'The Hub' then we rent it to other tourists to make the organization self sustainable.
My motto for life is to volunteer for the needy ones when needed. "DO WELL DO GOOD!
