It was great to stay with Shiva, his family makes you feel very welcome. I had all the things i need to a basic level and Shiva was extremely flexible about things. I would recommend this experience if you would like a very relaxed collaborative work and more of a way to get to know Nepal and its people.

my stay with Shiva and his family was a really great experience! his whole family was so nice and i felt very welcomed by everyone. the work was next to nothing so I had loads of free time to explore all of kathmandu. the house is in a nice quiet area a little outside the center and you get a lovely room to yourself. truly a great experience I would recommend to everyone.

I got a great experience in Shiva’s home, he is so nice, respectful and he makes your stay confortable. He understand all our needs and do the best for make us feel at home. His family are amazing, very attentive. I’ll miss them for sure, specially to Siddhartha, his little boy, always full of energy. All of them will give you all their love and will involved you in their traditions. It was amazing to share my time with them! Thanks a lot! Hope to go back and have more experiences, next time for trekking 🤗😊😊

The best volunteer experience in my life. From the very first day I felt like at home, Sabinaya and Sidarka are now like brothers to me, this family gave to me all the facilities I needed, the food was amazing, milk tea was delicious, and the conversations we had were unique. They all have a huge heart, Shiva is a very honest and flexible person, he helped me a lot (like a father)giving me advices with my future plans and he took me to visit many different beautiful places in Kathmandu. I still can't believe how lucky I was staying with he and his family. I miss you all already. Thanks💚

Shiva and his family made us feel as welcome as it is rare to find today. We were able to feel immediately at ease and thus be able to fully enjoy this experience. Beyond the very good welcome, Shiva is an excellent guide who knows Kathmandu and the history of Nepal perfectly! Thanks to him, we leave with a head full of memories but especially full of history and culture about Nepal and its capital. I would like to thank him again for his kindness and we can't wait to come back to Nepal to see him and his family again.
