The rooms are simple and nothing special but Gouri is very helpful and trustworthy, his wife Tara is very nice and cooks good Indian food, and their little kid is super cute. For us it felt very homey, and te roof top though small is nice to hang out and have a beer with other travellers.

This is a small local homestay, run by a friendly and helpful couple. I stayed with them for a week and found them knowledgable and honest. They walked more than one extramile for me (e.g. I could their fridge for free, I could check out after the official check-out time). My room (with attached bathroom) was cozy, clean and well...

Gouri and his family is very welcoming and make you feel like home but I have to say is not a good place to stay and is not cheap for what they offer. The sheet of the room looks unclean (the mattress was brown color) and it doesnt have a wc in the bathroom, just the hole as the bus... More

The owners Gouri and Tara, could not be more friendly and helpful. They made our time here special. We cancelled 2 nights of our stay here last minute and Gouri could not have been more gracious. The room was small but comfortable and adequate for our needs. Could have been a little cleaner but fine. Gouri's tour of the old... More

Contrary to the review Stephen H gave, the food we were served was awful. We ordered a Thali, and we got 2 chapatis which were not fresh (one was stale), rice, also not fresh, some Indian snacks (the stuff you buy in bulk at the fried snack shops) and some fried cantaloupe. That was it. Not even dal. It's best... More

Shanti House.....clean, sweet, cheap, meant for backpackers, homecooked food, good help but not pushy at all. I stayed in Bikaner with Gouri and his family, in his fantastic little guest house. This is more of a homestay than a hotel. You really feel relaxed. While it is like a homestay though, you have your privacy. Complete with a little rooftop... More

Great room for the price in the Old City with clean bathroom. Best owners, Gouri and wife (plus their gorgeous daughter) did everything possible to make my time in Bikaner the best ever, including pickup, great food, and even special haircut service. 100% genuine trustworthy people. Can't wait to return.

I stayed here for two nights and was very impressed. The owner, Gouri, was waiting for me at the bus stop and took me straight to the hotel. Nothing was too much for him as he arranged for my day trip to see the rat temple, and all my excursions to the local shops. He is extremely knowledgeable about the... More

A good way to experience accommodation in a real Indian house. The owner, his wife and their little girl are all very welcoming. They have been nice enough to get me from the bus station and then back to the train station for free and while I was there they have been very helpful and given me all possible info... More
