Born and Raised in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Lived and travelled in US (12 Years), Qatar (1.4 years), Europe
Suraj and his wife were exceedingly accomodating and helpful. We felt very at home and well cared for even. As a special perk, they even served us special tea. Suraj also helped organize flights for three of us. We were very sorry to leave. Such a delightful family to stay with! Will definitely stay with them again :)
Totally place worth of staying! House is nice and cozy and family super. They helped us so much during the trip and showed us how Nepalese people actually live. That is something you cant experience in some hotel in Thamel. You really get a feeling that you arrive there as a traveller and leave as a friend.
I had such a wonderful time with Suraj and Rhesu. The house with the nice little backyard is tucked away from the noisy streets, and still central to many architectural attractions and well connected to the public transport network. And the tandoori place Rhesu showed me down the street has the most delicious chicken saag and naan. It's highly addictive! And I'm definitely coming back to Suraj and Rhesu's place on my next visit in Kathmandu.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with Suraj, Rechu, Tintin and Mickey, the dog!
It was fun getting to know them and share a meal or two! Suraj was helpful with any directions, or traveling suggestions i might have had. He arranged for a Mountain flight, which was quite enjoyable! Thanks!
The room was comfortable and spacious!…and should I find myself in Kathmandu, once again, I will be sure to look into visiting my friends there in Nepal!
The reservation was canceled 34 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Suraj and Reshu, his wife, are very warm and lovely people. They made everything very easy for me. Sometimes it is difficult when you are not used to a different culture but they were very helpful in giving informatiion like where to go to, what to do, how it all works here. and they have a beautiful little baby who is like the most adorable nepalese baby ever. you can also cook and wash your dirty landry. they have a lovely terrace on the rooftop where you can sit and enjoy the view over kathmandu. so if there is a place to stay in kathmandu i would always recommend this lovely family!
I had a very good time living with Suraj, Rechu and the rest of their family for two weeks, when I returned two weeks later before leaving Nepal, it almost felt like coming home! Suraj was very helpful with how to get here and there. He took us to some temples and he showed us where to have amazing momos and Bara! Very convenient location, close to the airport and it is easy to get around Kathmandu by bus or tuktuk! The rooftop of the house is such a nice place to spend the afternoons. Be aware of power cuts and cold water in the morning though! I know that I have made some new friends in Kathmandu, and I definitely want to come back one day!
Per noi è stata la prima esperienza! Da rifare! Un ottimo modo per capire la cultura di altre persone e sicuramente meraviglioso condividere una parte di vita con altri.
You would be missing out on a WONDERFUL experience if you go to Nepal and don't stay here. Wow! I don't really have words to describe the amazing experience while staying with Suraj bhaiya and Resu Bhabi. From the initial enquiry to the final goodbye while leaving for the airport, everything was perfect. As rightly said by Suraj Bhaiya at the time of my departure, I went as a Paying Guest but next time I would be staying with them as a Guest. I have be-friended an amazing couple in Nepal and staying with them was the star highlight of my trip. I wish them all the luck with their endeavours and highly suggest a fellow air-bnb'er to definitely stay with them during their trip.
Everything was rally perfect. We´d loved to stay at Surajs place. We got very useful information about Nepal and India, thank you for that. I can only recommend to stay at his place. He and his wife have a really big big heart. They always wanted the best for us. When we felt sick, Suraj crated a special drink for our stomache. He really cares about us. Thank you for the good time ;)
