The SpaceOur home located in Lubhoo in the suburbs of Kathmandu Valley. The village is famous for its fabric manufacture.
If you are looking for an authentic Nepalese place to stay off the tourism path and optionally want to get involved in social work, Kiki´s Childrenshome is the best choice for you.
It is possible to either volunteer in the community and help out in the everyday life at Kiki's Childrenshome or to rent one of the rooms on the top floor of the house. The house and the surrounding neighboorhood is very calm and peacefull. From the rooftop you can enjoy a beautiful view over the valley and when the weather is clear you can see the Himalayan mountains. At night you can see a clear and sparkling sky of stars. In the morning we provide Western Style breakfast or you can choose to cook for yourself in your own kitchen (there is plenty of grocery stores or local markets nearby). In the night you can enjoy the traditional nepalese dish „Dal Bhat“ with us if you feel like it.
The house has three floors and every floor can be locked separately. In the first floor, the happy and kind children are living, cooking, doing their homework and playing in the afternoons. In the second and third floor we provide private rooms in cosy Nepalese style, which is where you would stay. If you need a sleeping bag we can lend you one. We offer you a laundry service and hot showers. You have a spacious living room with TV and access to the WLAN. When you need a day off you can enjoy the sun on your private balcony, drinking Nepali milk tea and chatting with the children.
