    Great plane to stay, clean, safe, helpful, and a lovely view over the lake just outside. Nice communal terrace area. No provision for meals but Lakeside area is awash with good options all only a few minutes stroll along the lake.

    Amazing location (easy to walk to restaurants and shops within 2 minutes) with lovely lake views. staff super friendly and helpful. They arranged for us to go paragliding and for taxis for great prices. The beds and super super comfortable with a fan and privacy curtain for each bed. The showers are amazing - hot, clean and good water pressure! The hostel even looked after our bags whilst we went on a 5 day trek. Best hostel ever and such good value for money. Stay here for zero regrets!

    I have been to all hostels nearby like Gaurishankar, Zostel etc in Pokhara but nothing can beat the hospitality and rooms of this Forest Lake Hostel. Santhosh and owner Abhishek Bhattarai are 2 gems in that hostel who take a lead in everything. You name it and they will get it done. Very friendly staff, Homely feeling and will be visiting again after 2 months. God bless this Hostel! Note that this is not paid review or so.

    There are no keys so if you’re uncomfortable with that it is just a walk in/ out situation. It’s in such a good location tho, right on the lake. The staff are lovely and really good vibes and there’s a small communal area to meet other people

    No AC in dorm rooms, the 6 bed dorm we stayed in was tiny and so hot! There were people around in the hostel but no one made the effort to talk to us despite us trying. Some people in our room had food all over the side, so the room stank! It was a no from us so we decided to check out a day early and move to a hotel (the same price)
