Newbie to Forums, and Newbie to GSDs.
Im watching my friend's GS for a few months, she's around 2 years old. She's very sweet, responds well to me and my commands, big snuggler. Problem i cant ignore is her being aggressive towards my guests. No damage or bared teeth, just barking and has "nipped" at a few (i immediately shut her in my bedroom after that.) I would love advice or training tips to keep my guests safe and the dog more obedient.Thoughts? :)

First and foremost be careful. Second, you have a two years female GSD that is reactive.
Keep her in a crate when you’re not 100% focus on her. Plenty of exercise work out all her anxiety’s and energy. Avoid the situation in the further. Lastly give the dog back to the owner ASAP.

Good Luck

That's a normal GSD behaviour. You have to train him a solid stay. And tell your guests the do's and don'ts whenever they come in contact with your dog. It's a bit hard but doable. The good thing is, it's mostly just excitement and not human aggression.
