A homestay in Darjeeling is typically an extension of the house of a local. The landlord and his family would stay in one part of the property while there will be separate rooms for guests. Most time the dining room and even the living room would be common so that you can interact with the owner's family when you stay there. In several such homestays, you can also join a family member in the kitchen and lend your hand in cooking if you so want. Or learn from the family how to prepare local Nepali food which is often delicious. In the evening when you are back after sightseeing or shopping, you can sit with the family members in the living room, chat and watch TV. So a homestay in Darjeeling is all about staying in a local home, experiencing and enjoying Darjeeling using the ways and eyes of the locals. You can dine with the local family, even participate in their day to day life to get insight into their lives and culture, and of course have delicious homemade food in a homely environment. This is an experience which is completely different from a hotel. Do not expect professional service like of a hotel, instead you will get lots of love and caring from the family. By allowing tourists in their houses, such local families have decided on a different way of living life where they need to spend a lot of time with outsiders as part of their day-to-day life.
