Reviewed May 17, 2010

I stayed at Krishnas house in Bhaktapur for three nights during a month-long trip to Nepal. It was definitely one of the highlights. AJ welcomed me into his home and always went the extra-mile to make sure that I was taken care of. The best part of staying at Krishnas house is it provided me a chance to meet (and get to know) a warm Nepalese family. Waking up to the sounds of birds and chanting was very pleasant after the horns and general mayhem of Thamel. One morning I did yoga (which is offered right out in the courtyard) and that was a wonderful experience I won't be forgetting anytime soon.

Bhaktapur itself is in the Kathmandu valley and is a world heritage site. There are beautiful and preserved temples and museums that I wondered around in for a couple afternoons. I cannot reccomend staying here enough, a real treasure!

Conveniently located yet slightly off the beaten path Krishna’s House was perfect for our 4 night stay in Bhaktapur. We chose to visit during the New Years festival. Ajaya our host put an exceptional amount of care and attention into making sure our needs were met and we experienced the highlights of the festival, it’s customs and key points of interest. He arranged excursions to Kathmandu and Paten and accompanied us to the India Embassy to confirm additional travel arrangements.

The accommodations at Krishana’s House were comfortable. The double room we stayed in was clean, spacious and well appointed with twin beds, bathroom and sitting area. The meals prepared by Ajaya’s wife were exceptional. Each meal included homemade Nepalese dishes that were plentiful. The presentation was excellent and the food was delicious.

If you are a budget traveler but still require comfort, good food, and knowledgeable hosts, Krishna’s House is an excellent choice for a stay in Bhaktapur.

If you want an authentic and enjoyable Nepalese experience, then I would totally recommend spending some time at Krishna House.

AJ and his family warmly welcomed us into his home in the beautiful medieval town of Bhaktapur. Our room was peaceful, private and well equipped with our own ensuite toilet and shower.

We had a fun, interesting and varied itinerary over the 5 days, ranging from beautiful Buddhist and Hindu temples to remote villages and nature walks.

I couldn’t have asked for a more informative or good natured guide than AJ; he has a great skill for sharing information in an interesting and enjoyable way. AJ has immeasurably increased my understanding & appreciation of Nepal, both past & present, in a way that only a local can.

Equally enjoyable was the amazing food that Sunita prepared everyday. The quality and taste of the dishes made using authentic family recipes & her genuine hospitality was unforgettable.

AJ has excellent English and is honest, open and very professional. It was very easy to organise our stay, and AJ was kind enough to organise an additional trip to Chitwan for us as well.

This is one travel experience I will fondly remember for a very long time!

A friend and I recently were in Nepal and had arranged to homestay with a local family in Bhaktapur called Krishna House. It was the highlight of our trip and I learnt more about tradiitional Nepali life, cuisine and culture in the 5 days with them than the entire remainder of my trip. Ajaya the tour guide and homestay manager / owner was brilliant. Offering a range of activities that we could choose from during the days we were staying with him. He was flexible - allowing guests to choose from activities to suit their interests! We undertook Cultural and historical tours of temples and stupas in towns throughout the Kathmandu Valley and additional nature hikes also. Ajaya has extensive knowledge of these aspects having undertaken university/studies in this area. There wasn't a question he couldn't answer and more. I learnt so much about hinduism and buddhism. We went to places where no other tourists were (small rural villages) and so I felt that the experience was incredibly authentic.The homestay itself was amazing. Each day we would converse with the family - they made us feel like we truly were a part of the family. The traditional Nepali cuisine was a highlight. Beautiful food and huge servings!
I would strongly recommend that all people travelling to Nepal for the first time- stay here at this homestay. It was brilliant!

I went to Nepal to trek, but by accident came across a fantastic homestay in the old city of Bhaktapur, a World Heritage site about 20km from Kathmandu. Krishna House (www.krishnashouse.com) offers an unlimited supply of authentic, home cooked nepali food, excellent room facilities(including western toilet) and a very friendly family atmosphere in which you also have your own space.
Although the facilities are awesome the real highlight is the guided tour of the city by Ajaya Prajapali. Aj's family have lived in Bhaktapur for generations. He makes the city come alive in terms of its religions, architecture, temples and festivals. But there is more to come. Aj takes you into the backstreets and alleyways, stooping and entering old doorways and couurtyards where no tourist ever ventures, to reveal the lifestyle and community living of the local Bhaktapur residents. Simply fascinating. An experience not to be missed.
