This is the place to go in bikaner as a backpacker. Gouri is a jewel and must be the most honest guest house owner in rajasthan. He helped us with everything. So if you're in bikaner and you travel budget, gi to him. No regrets.

The rooms are a little basic but everything is there. Gouri the owner is a nice man who speaks well english and he is very helpful. You can choose what you want to eat for dinner, and he/his wife will go to the market and make you fresh food. Beware of tuktuk drivers who say that shanti house is full... More

Time passes throught the little streets of Bikaner was really charming with the experience of the owner of the Guesthouse, Gouri. More than a clean room and calm location, Gouris family is really sweet, welcoming and helpfull at any time. You will surely learn all there is to know about Bikaner There! Have a good stay!

This is a quaint little place in the old city of Bikaner. The owner and his wife are very welcoming, genuine people and the walking tour we went on through the old city was very interesting. Highly recommended if you want to be off the beaten path...not many tourists around pretty cool!

Gouri and his wife Tara make you feel welcome as soon as you enter their home. Lots of chai and chats. Tara made us delicious cinammon tea. The guesthouse is decorated with an eclectic collection of old rajasthani paintings and wall hangings. My rooftop room was beautifully decorated in traditional style. Gouri is a real "mr fix it," he took... More

If you searching a budget hotel i Bikaner Shanti is a good option with a helpful owner. He can take you round in old city and show you places you never find by yourself. The rooms are rather smal but clean with attached bath. On the rooftop you will meet the other guests and share your experiences. The wife can... More

This is a very nice guest house. It is simple, but has everything you need. The host, Gouri, is a wonderful person. He gives his time freely, knows his city and is wonderfully helpful. I spent a long time in Bikaner and can say with ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE that Gouri will not pressure you into using his drivers or force you... More
