I stayed with Bishnu and family for 3 months. It was a wonderful experience. I learnt lots about Nepali culture. They were extremely welcoming and helpful. The rooms was of a good size and they provided a small kitchen. There is a communal terrace area you can relax or work in with a lake view. The house is located in a peaceful area which is a shirt walk to the main hustle and bustle of lakeside. I would recommend for anyone looking for a long or short stay.

We booked our accommodation at Bishnu's for only 2 days. We where welcomed with open arms and cared for by Bishnu and his wife. I was a bit sick at the time and they immediately helped me and I felt a lot better the same day! After our 2 days we extended our stay for another week. With no problem. We could also borrow his scooter to go to town or he booked us a taxi. He recommend us the best places and we had so much fun in Pokhara because of Bishnu. He makes you part of the family and it was like coming home. We loved it!

Bishnu homestay was the highlight of our trip. A beautiful house positioned close to the main street in Pokhara ( 10 min walk) but quiet enough to feel restful). Overlooking a field with a lake view, cattle and horses grazed there under our balcony. Accommodations were clean, tidy, and neat and wifi was excellent which was much needed for the many work zoom calls i had. The balcony was a great facility with a fridge and kettle. Bishnu and his family were simply lovely and could not do more to help make our stay special. Was great to be able to rent Bishu's scooter. Half the price of a hotel and 5 x the service. Bishnu and his family were quite simply fantastic and we will remember them and our trip to Nepal for a very long time. Highly recommended.

"Come as a guest and leave as a friend" say some accommodations in Nepal. But Bishnu makes these words come true like no other. I dont say it light heartedly but Bishnus accommodation was the best stay ever! and we travelled the world a lot, so we met a lot of hosts. Highly recommended to rent for a month or more!

Staying with Bishnu’s family in Pokhara was the highlight of my trip in Nepal. As hosts they were so thoughtful and caring about making sure everything was comfortable for me. Bishnu helped me with so many things around Pokhara as well as planning my poonhill trek. I was able to have his wonderful brother shiva as a guide! I decided to stay again at the Bishnu homestay when I returned from the mountains because I feel so comfortable here! (solo female traveler).

Bishnus place is amazing. I stayed there for 4 weeks and felt like I was at home. The room was very nice and clean, just like on the pictures. The view from the house was also very very beautiful. It was nice to wake up with this view every day. You reach the lake by just a few minutes of walk, so you'll find amazing nature in that area and at the same time you have multiple supermarkets, shops and restaurants and you are just a 10min walk away from an area which is more busy and has even more restaurants and things to see. Bishnu and his family are the most kindhearted people you can find and they will always help you to find the best sightseeing spots or provide you with really good food every day. I can recommend everyone coming here and I will surely come back one day !!

I have stayed at BISHNU’S a number of times and I've always had a very positive experience, from the very comfortable room, to the amazing home-cooked food, to the feeling like I am part of the family when staying there. Bishnu is not only my favorite guest house owner in Nepal but is my friend. With over 16 years living and traveling in Asia I believe I have enough experience to say this is one of the best homestay experiences you will find in this part of Asia.
