  • Descripción


    I am Bishwo founder of the only hostel in Bhaktapur, We also own a Guesthouse next to the Hostel and farm land just out of town.

    (Please read our profile completely and carefully before sending us a request) 

    Our goal in this project is to be able to connect local culture and history to the travelers. We provide a place for travelers to call home, social volunteers who love to interact with our guests are important to keep the vibe alive.

    We organize and participate in social activities for guests, tours around historical monuments, nature walks, jamming nights, yoga classes, food tours and anything else our volunteers can offer.

    We have a on-site kitchen where we serve breakfast/lunch/dinner to guests.

    We have 2-3 lovely Nepali workers that help keep the hostel tidy and cook for guests, their english is limited but they are willing to learn new skills.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Bhaktapur is a historical city full of stories and monuments. I was born and raised here. I enjoy sharing my culture and city with travelers from a local prespective.

    I'm actively working on different community projects, charity's and networking with local businesses so you will have the opportunity to meet a lot of locals.

    We have many festivals in Bhaktapur and often enjoy walking around the city exploring with guests, drinking tea or grabbing a beer and sitting at the square.
