“Great base to explore Bhaktapur & surrounds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Krishnas House is a comfortable homestay/guesthouse in a good location just a short walk from the old city gate. We were offered a great breakfast each morning including Bhaktapur’s famous curd. Top sheets were missing from the beds but were provided to us upon request. We stayed 3 nights at Krishna’s at the end of our Nepal trip – day 1 exploring Bhaktapur, day 2 car trip to surrounding villages kindly arranged by Ajaya, and day 3 packing up and going by taxi to Kathmandu Airport.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family

Ended our trekking holiday with a two night stay at Krishna House. Ajaya and his family were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The homestay is very comfortable, the room spacious and clean and the breakfast was amazing - especially the local yoghurt. It's an easy walk into Bhaktapur, a fascinating medieval city. Ajaya had organised a car to drive us to visit local temples and had also organised our great trek to the Annapurna Sanctuary. Thank you so much for making our stay in Nepal so memorable. Would highly recommend.

I stayed at Krishna House during a months time and really liked it. The family is friendly and helpful and make you feel at home.
It was perfect to stay here during a longer period of time, since the rooms are big and well equipped and the house is located in a nice area. The surroundings are calm while still not far from Bakthapur and the bus station, from where you easily can go to Kathmandu.
Mr Ayaj also helped us to arrange a 5-days treck, which we really enjoyed.

In total a very memorable stay!

we had a great time in krishna's house. The owner Mr. Ajaya & his family members were so nice and great us as their friends. It's a homestay rather than a hostel or hotel.

We loved our stay with the friendly and hospitable family who own Krishna's House. The homestay has several rooms, so we had the chance to interact with other guests from various places around the world. Ajaya, his father Kedar, wife Sunita, son Aditya, and daughter Maiya were thoughtful and helpful beyond all measure. It was a major festival time (April 9-18) in Bhaktapur, and the family was busy with renovations and preparations. Yet, each one found the time to help us with our needs and requests. They helped us set up a very nice stay at Nagarkot and a great 20 km hike from there to the world heritage temple at Changu Narayan. We encourage you to ask for Sambar Lama as a trail guide as he took us through meandering paths and through small villages well off the tourist trail. Each day of our week in Bhaktapur, we saw amazing cultural sights and sites: sacrifices, celebrations with living gods, cremation ceremonies, chariot tug-of-wars. Ajaya and his father helped interpret what we had seen. The facilities are great, very comfortable rooms, beds, and nice common space and library. The breakfast is fresh and substantial! We highly recommend this homestay.

Room Tip: We stayed in their newest room in the main house and in one upstairs adjacent to the main house. Bo...

I had a two day stay at Krishna House and it was wonderful! Ajay was a fount of information not only about Bhaktapur but also about the surrounding areas and just about anything Nepal. The room was spacious and clean, and was located just off a very nice balcony where I liked to sit at the end of the day to journal. The guest house is located about a 10 minute walk from the main gate to Darbur Square, and is only a few minutes from the public bus area. Ajay arranged transportation for me to visit Changu Narayan, which I'm so appreciative that he recommended as this was one of the highlights of my trip.

We had a wonderful 2-night stay with Ajay. The room was bright and clean, while the lovely House is situated in a convenient location about 15-minutes walk from the main square.

Ajay was a wealth of knowledge and a charming host - I highly recommend a stay at this gem.
