The place is a bit far but with Sarita's suggestions we went to many places without any problems. The room is clean and impressive with the nepalese style bed. the bathroom s quite average in nepal although it can be better. i would say the highlight was the breakfast when Sarita cooked for us and had guests gather around the...

I can't recommend this place more! Sarita and family provide everything you need while in Kathmandu. I stayed in Sanu's House for two months while working in Kathmandu and the warm welcome from day one lasted the duration of my stay. The accommodation is the perfect mix of western comforts (with free filtered water, solar-heated water, Wifi, a library, clean... More

Sarita and her family make staying at Sanu's House feels like 'home away from home'. Her family is warm, friendly, and trustworthy. Sartia is always willing to help answer any of your questions about navigating the city or cultural/religious norms. The rooms are clean, spacious, and well furnished with desks, chairs, wardrobes etc. Sanu's is the perfect mix of western... More

We recently went to Patan for two days and were warmly welcomed by Sarita and her hospitality. She is one of the nicest people ever. We came to Patan to look for statues to ship back and sell in the states-- Sarita was more than helpful in telling us where to go and offered to come with us if we... More

Arrived at Kathamandu in mid February on a open ended trip to Nepal/India. Sanu's house was recommended to me by a facebook friend. The cab driver at the airport had no trouble finding the house. Sarita warmly greeted me at the door and welcomed me into her homestay. My room was very comfortable and I enjoyed the surrounding area of... More

Just spent nearly 2 weeks at Sanu's house and found Sarita and her family to be really friendly and helpful. Budget accommodation, so basic, but very clean and the food was good. The only real drawback is the dusty roads and constant traffic.

Sarita, the owner of Sanu's House in Patan, is absolutely fabulous. She is kind, helpful, and extremely sweet. With her advice on where to go for trips, shopping, restaurants, you don't even need a travel guide! The hotel price includes breakfast, and lunch and dinner are available for 150 rupees ($1.80 Canadian each). She is very accommodating about food preferences... More

I loved Sanu's guesthouse. The staff was super friendly, especially when I needed to get to the other side of Kathmandu and all taxis were on strike..the uncle of the house took me all through the busy streets and public transport (which can be insane with 2 rucksacs) to my destination. He didn't need to go all the way,but I... More

Yes, it's a homestay so you have a shared bathroom but you know that from the start. Everything else...it's great. It's a little bit further from the real 'tourist' area but to be honest..you don't want to be there. Just people following you and asking you all kind of things. The homestay is in Patan, the old part of Kathmandu... More

I had to stay in Kathmandu for a month for work. I heard about about Sanu's house from a friend and already knew it was a good place to stay at! The house is very nice, clean and very well maintained. The family will be here to help you for anything, especially Sarita that will tell you everything you need... More
