We stayed at Gauri Shankar guesthouse in December 2015 and absolutely loved our stay! The staff are all extremely friendly, the garden is the perfect place to enjoy coffee and read a book, and the rooms have everything you need to be comfortable. They even organised a Christmas party for all the guests, including delicious food and dancing. Highly recommended,... More

Although a cheap hotel, the bathrooms were disgusting. I don't believe they have ever cleaned them. The rooms (beds) felt constantly damp. The towels had seen better days. The gardens were nice. The breakfast and coffee was reasonable. There seems to be a lot of the staff sitting around when they could be cleaning up the place. I understand their... More

Nice staff and they were very helpful. Filthy bathrooms I don't think they have been cleaned for some time. Cheap and worth paying more for something decent. Lots of dead plants to spoil the terrace. Not even nice in the courtyard.

Pokhara is a beautiful city, and the best way to enjoy it is to have a charming and peaceful place to stay whenever you want to enjoy some free, smooth and quiet time. Gauri Shankar is that kind of place. The garden could be a paradise, the rooms are clean and pleasant, the vue can be amazing if you're not... More

Quiet place with garden to sit and relax in. Friendly staff that can arrange good guides. Ask to get Kadji as a guide if he is availiable. Thre is a good restaurant in the same street servning typical nepalese Dahl Bath.

I stayed here with my daughter just after the second earthquake. She had been in Nepal for both earthquakes and having come from Kathmandu it was reassuring to see that it was not one of the high rise hotels that are springing up all over Pokhara. There were no cracks in the structure that we could see and being only... More

Since I first set foot into the Garden of Gauri Shankar GH 8 years ago, I was enchanted by it from moment one. You will always return and want to stay there while in Pokhara. As mentioned in all the reviews before, Judy/Ram/Harka/Krishna are the heart and soul Gauri Shankar. They make you feel at home and also the rooms... More

Gauri Shankar is a great guesthouse in South Lakeside, just a few minutes walk from the beautiful Phewa lake. There are single and double rooms, but also a cheap and comfortable dormitory for the budget travellers. You will find many nice restaurants and shops around the guesthouse. I spent there one month while I was doing an internship. The guesthouse... More

Located just off Lakeside Road, Gauri Shankar is a great guest house with a beautiful garden and big, neat rooms. The people running the guest house are very friendly and always ready to help. I stayed at GS for 3 weeks while doing an internship and really felt like I had found a second home!

I am a photographer and a writer and I stayed in Gauri Shankar many times. They take care of me as family. The rooms are OK. Don't miss the breakfast in the garden. A pot of masala tea in this quiet, natural place is the best ever way to start a vacation day... :)
