Sarita and her family make you feel very welcome in their home and it is easy to feel so comfortable that it is hard to leave. We had the opposite issue as previous guest, our trip to Nepal was delayed, but she kindly pushed our booking back to when we could come. Traditional Newari food is available for dinner (&lunch...

To experience real nepali life and nepali hospitality and kindness stay in Sanu's House! It's basic, but lovely. Sarita and her family will do everything to please and help you. I felt at home the moment I came in. I loved my little room near the roof terrace where I could watch mother laying out rice and beans. Because of... More

We read about Sanu's house on Trip Adviser and got in touch with Sarita. We stayed at Sanu's House for 6 days. Sarita and her nieces made us feel like we were a part of their extended family. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Sarita is a good cook. Sanu's House is very well located. Bang on the Ring Road. Approx.... More

Stayed at Sanu's House for 3 weeks - could not have asked for a more welcoming introduction to Nepal and Kathmandu. Nothing was too much trouble - Sarita and her nieces and family were always happy to show you how to get to anywhere (including walking you there if confusing), make sure you got on the right bus/tempo, cook wonderful...

We stayed here at the beginning of our trip in Nepal. The family were wonderful and very helpful giving us a map and advice on things to do and how to get around. The rooms are cold at this time of year, but ask for more blankets and you can be quite cosy. As said by other people it is... More

From the moment we entered the homestay until the moment we took a taxi to the airport (provided with luck for the flight home :)) we enjoyed our stay at Sanu's House. The place is quiet, authentic and clean and the people running the homestay (Sarita & family) are really lovely and very helpful. On the way home I saw... More

Sarita and her family did everything to feel us comfortable like home! We had a very nice room on the third floor, very spacious and clean! The shared bathroom always gave us hot water. Sarita knows so much about Patan, she even showed us around - thanks again for a wonderful evening! Breakfast and diner are very nice, homemade and... More

Staying at Sanu's house is the best way to experience Nepalese culture. It's a three generation home and they all make you feel welcome and very good. We stayed in total 2 weeks, which says a lot ;-). Sarita, the owner, is very helpful, cute and friendly. Breakfast is included in the price and you can order lunch and dinner... More

What an amazing family and place. The hospitality here is not catered to those who want a typical hotel/hostel like experience - it is rather of genuine and sincere care and love, that of which made me feel as though I was included into a family. You will not walk away from this place feeling tired and unsatisfied. You will... More
