“Great Location and good service”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Arrived 2 hours before Check In time, however the rooms were arranged and provided to us. We hired bikes from the hotel for the sight seeing and everything was easy. The river view rooms provided an excellent view of the fields and the river across. Two things which I did not like about this place were
1) Food was not good at all and was costly too
2) Special consideration to foreigners which might be good for others

We spent 10 days here and loved almost every minute. We had the river view rooms, as opposed to the pretty little huts, and it was lovely. The views are amazing and I spent hours sitting in the swing seat, not needing or wanting to do anything. The staff here are all friendly and helpful, the food is great and the atmosphere chilled and relaxed. but the room itself was perfect. especially the oven baked pizzas. It is a great place to relax with lovely river views and swimming a stones throw away. It also has a fantastic range of facilities from a motorbike hire, with internet with wifi and laundry service available. All in all a great place to meet new people.Thanks to all the Mowgli's staff for their top class service. As soon as you arrived at he reception, you receive a warm welcome. The bungalows in front of the rice fields give you a great sight view. The best place to relax and enjoy Hampi's visit.

Room Tip: Go for rooms facing paddy fields for nice view.

The place has a nice sitting area with a good view of paddy fields and river. But then, most of the guest houses there have the same. This place is extremely understaffed and whatever staff is there is extremely rude. No one comes and asks you for order and even when you call them, they tend to visibly ignore you. Food there was really pathetic. It was under cooked and when we tried to tell this to the staff, they did nothing about it. All this is such a contrast because anywhere else you go in Hampi, people are extremely helpful and cordial. It can be a nice place with better staff and management.

The location is excellent, looking over the rice fields to the river and if you want peace and quiet choose a 1st floor room not a hut. However the restaurant leaves much to be desired, the place is covered in flies and I got very sick after eating here. (vomiting all night). The manager is sullen and unhelpful and although we had paid for food and drinks ordered as we had them, they tried as we were leaving to stick another 450 IR on the bill for food we hadnt had. The waiters could do with a course in how to serve customers as in general they werent very interested in providing a service.

Really liked it here. Hampi is exceptionally beautiful. The staff here just made me feel so welcome. Had a great couple of days with them. The food here is very good they have a pizza oven and do lots of other western food. The banoffee pie is well worth a try. If you like a realaxed place and just want to escape for a while. Then head here it's well worth it.

We went here for food as friends had recommended it, and although the food overall was alright (one falafel lafa tasted like fish strangely), the service here was terrible. We were 3 groups of friends and told him we'd like to pay separately before ordering and so he noted 3 separate bills. Unfortunately he took down the orders wrong and when it came to paying we needed to recalculate. The waiter threw the pen and pad at us and told us to do it ourselves, which we did on the back of the receipt. He came back 5 minutes later shouting that we had caused a big problem by writing on his receipt and questioning us as to why we thought we had the right to do this?!! Once we settled the bills he then started to refill all of the salt / pepper / ketchup on our table, despite there being free tables everywhere and we were practically forced to leave. Better restaurants all along the strip on this side of the river, I recommend Gopi Guest House
