I stayed at Suraj's place with my friend Dheeraj. A family that we can never forget in our life. Suraj is the coolest guy we've ever met. A brother(bhay) who helped us out in all our decisions on our trip to Nepal. Within Minutes we were able to change the plan if it weren't viable where Suraj has the best recommendations according to our taste. We are lucky and honoured to meet a guy like him. He gave us valuable advices.
Suraj's place was really, as everybody calls it, cozy and comfy. He had these big blankets that keeps you warm and cozy. A heater to take a warm bath after a tough day. The flooring was warm. For people like us, who come from a place like Kerala, extreme cold is a thing that we've never experienced. But at his house it was like HOME SWEET HOME. It was a relief to reach back home(suraj's place) after a hard day roaming around. The house was clean and well maintained. We got all the materials in the room like maps and books for references which gave an overview on the place we were about to visit. The location of the house is amazing. You can see the whole kathmandu town from the rooftop. Can get all sorts of vehicles and can go to any place u want to go from there.
Lots of Thanks to Suraj's father who helped us out in purchasing things from Pashupathinath temple and Thamel. Bargaining is kindf tough in Kathmandu. It was easy with him around us.
Tintin, the cute baby. Lots of kisses to u.
Then rezu(bhabhi). she was an amazing character. We enjoyed chit chatting about Nepali cuisine and shared Kerala cuisines with her.
The pet dog at the house became friendly really fast.
So if u're trying to find a place to stay in Kathmandu, giving easy access to almost all places then ur search is over.. i would recommend this place to everyone.
Suraj and Resu and their whole family gave us the perfect local stay. We could not have asked for more. We loved staying in Alvin's room. They are extremely welcoming and made us feel at home, especially after a long flight. We stayed with them for the first two nights in Kathmandu, before going on to Pokhara for a trek. We came late at night and the family stayed up to greet us. Suraj gives us our own space at the same time never made us feel like we are lost in a foreign city. We had a great time with his parents and son as well, and his father took the time in the morning to take us to run errands, which we appreciated so much. The room is lit well, lovely and cosy, and their blankets were amazing for a couple of folks who live in a tropical climate. You can ask them about anything and they are ready to help you and provide you anything you need, without imposing any information or recommendations on you. There is always someone at the house to greet you if Suraj is not at home. The kitchen, living room space and pretty much the whole common quarters are available for you to use.
You will definitely come as a stranger, stay as a guest and leave as a friend, in Suraj's place! Thank you for having us!

Suraj and his cousin (Niru) and the entire family are amazing! I had such a great stay that I came back after my first trek (they keptv some of my heavy things for me). They are so generous: there's always amazing food and chai. The location is a few minutes from Pashupatinah, and Niru took me to see the evening rituals (unforgettable, if you have the stomach for it). I oftentimes walked to Thamel or Bashantipur/Durbar, a great 40min walk through Bag/Dilli bazaars and returned by cab (250-400 rupees, depending on the time of the day and your ability to bargain). I strongly recommend their house for a calm silent sleep and to get to know more about Nepalese culture from great people. Much better than staying in Thamel, by the way!
It’s really a nice (website hidden) happy to meet Niru, and live in Neeru’s room. Five stars for all
I highly recommend staying in Alvin's Room when visiting Kathmandu! Suraj and Resu are wonderful, making me feel at home and had plenty of recommendations and local knowledge of where to go and what to do in Kathmandu. The room is very comfortable, cosy and clean. I was even lucky enough to meet Alvin (after whom it was named) he was coincidently visiting for the first time since his first stay in the room, great guy! Thank you Suraj, Resu and baby Tintin for your wonderful hospitality! Hope to visit again sometime.
Suraj and his whole family were beyond amazing hosts. He and his wife went above and beyond to get me oriented in Kathmandu on many occasions. I am so happy to have met them and spend my first days in Nepal in the security of their home. Suraj's apartment is off the tourist track which is refreshing because the tourist area of Thamel can be quite overwhelming. Near Suraj's place most people aren't accustomed to seeing tourists so they just go about their business and let you go about yours, however, very willing to help if you reach out. Very essential, be sure to check out the rooftop at Suraj's (especially at sunset) for and incredible view of the city.
Suraj è stato molto preciso, puntuale e dettagliato nel fornirmi le indicazioni per raggiungere la casa. L'accoglienza è stata cordiale e la disponibilità di Suraj e sua moglie nel suggerirmi cosa visitare, come spostarmi, che mezzi utilizzare per muovermi a Kathmandu e dintorni è degna di nota. L'ambiente è di tipo familiare, si può far conoscenza con l'intera famiglia allargata, composta da persone squisite. In poco tempo Suraj e Rezu diventano un valido punto di riferimento per consigli di qualsiasi natura. Con il loro aiuto ho avuto pure l'opportunità di partecipare ad un fantastico trekking nella valle del Langtang. Hanno entrambi (incluso il piccolo TinTin ed il cagnolino Mickey) contribuito a rendere il mio soggiorno indimenticabile.
Grazie, a presto
Don't travel to Kathmandu without staying at Alvin's room ! Or as i like to call it; the best place of Kathmandu to stay at. Suraj and his wife are the nicest people of Nepal. They're even nicer then Peter Pan and his friends. Of Nepali tea no shortage here, and if you are in for interesting facts about Nepal, a tour through Kathmandu or simply a joke or two, Suraj and Reshu's place is the place to come to
We stayed in Neeru's Place next to Suraj's and it was wonderful. Huge, cozy room and the family is very nice. We are so thankful for all the help and caring we received and would definitely come back next time we are in Kathmandu and stay longer!!
Thank you so much and we your food and oranges are lovely. :)
Suraj has been the most helpful! Even though, I didnt end up staying at his place .. my friends stayed there (which I booked) and had such nice things to say about him. Even during my travel, he helped me through my travel so much.
Kudos to Suraj. Hope to meet you soon sometime on my next visit :)
