Without a doubt the nicest host family we met on our nine week trip to India. Such a breath of fresh air to find a host who just wants to be genuinely helpful (and not try to sell you something). he does a great walking tour around old Bikaner. A little hard to find (look for the old metal safe near the entrance, and if you are using the app Maps.me with a GPS note that the Maps.me location is wrong. the correct location is a couple of streets over, about 70m away. The hotel is older style with Indian style bathrooms but we would go back there in a flash.

Stayed: January 2018

I really enjoyed my stay at Shanti House. Tara & Gouri were great hosts and made me fell like family.
Gouri also told some of us guests for a nice casual walking tour around the old town which was interesting.

We stayed at shanty house for our 3 days in Bikaner. We were really happy to meet this charming familly! Gouri took the time to shop with us and to give us lot of useful informations. Sadly both of us has been really sick due to restaurant food, the familly was really taking care of us and was listening to our needs. Could not have find a better home stay. Thank you for your kindness!

Although we had confirmed booking, the host recommended that since we are Indians traveling with family, the accomodation would not suit us. He politely put us up at Balaji guest house near the railway station which turned out to be a horrendous experience. It was infested with numerous rats and by the time we realised both our children were infected. Totally ruined our trip to Bikaner!

We stay there one night.
Hosts were really helpful, the guy give us lots of details, to explain us everything about the city, so it was really nice.
The room was clean, but really small.
You have to ask to get water, no hot water (can provide a bucket) and the bathroom was really really small.
It was REALLY noisy, way to much, and we have an horrible night there.
Nevertheless, it's well situated, and you can easily reach the train station.

The hosts make everything there, if they were not that nice, the rank will be lower.
