A great tourist hang out, just outside of the busier areas of Rishikesh. We had a basic room with attached bath which was perfectly adequate, clean and it was so nice to have space outside to hang out. We had a few altercations with cheeky monkeys trying to get into the bin, but that made it all the more memorable....

The rooms are decent sizes and all have a lovely seating area outside- however try to get a higher room to get a better view! The onsite restaurant is open all day and...

The service is friendly and very attentive...The top restaurant offers alcoholic beverages (just to note) and Lodging is fairly priced too. It provides a nice relaxed atmosphere (great for the budget & solo traveler) I highly recommend checking it out!

This guy is quite popular with non-Indians who want to have cheap accommodation for longer period of time such as month or so. Room comes with basic facilities and location views are advantage. They run a small restaurant in property. They do also run some yoga learning center nearby.

Stayed here for 4 nights, but would have walked out on the first day, if we hadn't have already paid online. The room itself is fine for value- you have a balcony with a beautiful view, (though our floor seemed to be under construction at the time.) Also had a good sized room with an ensuite that had hot water....
