Bikaner is a nice plave to visit with his fort and the incredible mouse temple, and to stay, Shanti House is a great opportunity. Gouri and his family are really kind. The place and the atmosphere are warm beacuse of the owners. Good vibes. Here you can taste great chai and in case you need help for anything Gouri will... More

Gouri and his family are the kindest, most accomodating and trustworthy people we have met in Bikaner. We were welcomed into their home and tara cooked us a lovely indian meal. We even got to have a go at making chapatis! Nothing was too much trouble and Gouri went above and beyond the call of duty for us, showing us... More

After the caotic Delhi me and my girlfriend we get to Bikaner by train. To choose Shanti house was one of the best ideas we get. Gouri, the owner, is a very very kind person and his wife and his daughter are the same. Openminded and very respectfull. He did his best to make feel confortable in his place and... More

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
