Subpar - much better/cleaner alternatives around for the same price. Don't sell yourselves short. Best!

Rooms are very basic and bedding was not that great. Holes and stains in sheets. Things were not exactly as advertised - we were unable to use the kitchen to prepare our own meals and had to pay for drinking water after every use. Our bathroom light, toilet and drain didn't work. The location is really great and close to the lake, shops and restaurants.

Gauri Shankar Guest House is in a great location being that it is near Lakeside but is not in a noisy location. Everything is nice and tidy, the garden is very nice to sit in and there is a library from which books can be borrowed. Ram, his son and the other managers are great hosts, able to help with any situations or answer any questions. The negative thing about the guest house is that the plumbing could be improved. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay here again if I return to Pokhara!

Gauri Shankar has to be one of the best value guest houses in Pokhara. Situated just over from Phewa Lake and maybe a 5-10 minute walk from the shops and restaurants of Lakeside, the hostel is on a quiet road surrounded by coffee shops. Rooms are private, clean with a private bathroom (and western toilet) and a softer, more western-style double bed than I've slept on in Nepal so far. I could even see the top of the Himalayas just about peaking out from behind a building from my window in the mornings. The garden area is a sun trap, but has ample shade where you can sit and talk to other guests or the staff. Ram, the owner, is a laid-back and extremely helpful former trekking guide who seems to know everyone in Pokhara and can organise treks, tours to Chitwan, paragliding or whatever other adventures you have planned around the city. The guest house has a cafe with a traveller library that serves delicious and cheap breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don't expect the luxuries of a 5-star hotel, I had to buy my own hand wash for instance, and the wifi only just stretched to my room so that my phone had difficulty connecting (my laptop had no trouble, however). That said, you should expect a warm welcome, good company, and extremely helpful staff from this family-run guest house.
