Property Description

Forest Lake is well positioned, where the Phewa Lake is only a doorstep away. Means, you get to enjoy marvelous beauty of the lake while staying at our luxurious yet affordable hostel. Our place is definitely not a party hostel. Our main aim is to give you complete relaxation, also giving you atmosphere where guest can meet fellow travelers and share their trekking stories and advices.

We have a lovely hangout area at the terrace where you can see the infinity view of the lake also enjoying the lake breeze either by relaxing on a hammock or on the couch. There is a forest in the background which makes its surrounding green and fresh. We also have private rooms at affordable prices with rooms having private balcony and wonderful view of the lake.

    Brilliant hostel, very chilled atmosphere, and especially brilliant staff. In particular Santosh who went the extra mile for me to find my lost laundry late into the night even when injured from a bike accident, an absolute hero. Absolutley recommend this place

    Great location by the lake! The hostel was very clean and they also were able to store our luggage when we went on a trek for 7 days which was super helpful. food was a little bit unexciting but there are so many places to eat nearby don’t need to eat at the hostel! Everything else was brilliant and the staff were super helpful!

    A little far from the shops but still walkable. Was very pleased with the cleanliness of the room and the toilets even though they are shared facilities. Food options are limited but was simple and nice. Beddings really comfortable. Fan for individual beds could have been slightly bigger. Overall we liked it here :)

    Best hostel in Pokhara, the beds are super comfy and everything is very clean. Would happily walk around barefoot into bathrooms which is unusual for hostels! The communal area is great with a hammock and view straight onto the lake. It is a short walk into the hustle of Pokhara centre but definitely worth it for the lake front accommodation. There are small lockers in the dorms however backpacks could not fit. If you want to stay here definitely book in advance as they were full during my stay

    Really nice place to stay, the people working were really friendly and happy to help out with anything we needed. It is a little bit of a hike from the main area of lakeside pokhara which was nice and quiet!

    Like another reviewer said, this place has no hostel atmosphere. So if you’re looking to have the normal hostel experience, I wouldn’t recommend this place. HOWEVER the beds were amazingly comfortable (best yet in Nepal), it was incredibly clean (cleanest yet in Nepal) and the showers were wonderful (again, best yet in Nepal). The terrace is a nice touch too. So if you’re looking for cheap comfort - yes. If you’re looking to make new friends - nah not really.
