Arrived quite late and was shown a double room priced at 600 rupees (dorm 350). Upon further inspection we noticed the sheets weren't changed, and actually the room was quite dirty. Arranged to have new sheets pronto, and some extra blankets.
Woke up in the morning to the most stunning view. It doesn't really matter about the room as the view certainly makes up for it. Was such a pleasure waking up to this view every morning. Hot water is supplied but you will have to bring your bucket and collect it from the kitchen. The water is heated by wood burner and after sunrise you can warm yourself with the friendly locals next to the fire.
They have free wifi which is fast when connected to the right one.
This is the cheapest place in Kodaikanal, and the view makes it one of the best. All they need to do is tidy up the rooms and would be perfect.
Tip: they have a double room on the lower level which has a fireplace in the bedroom, you can buy firewood from the local ladies selling it on the roadside as you walk into town. Very cozy! And perfect for the weather out here.
