Firstly, I have no idea why it is so popular among travelers! The way to the lodge is way too inconvenient. You have to take a long flight of stairs. Then risk yourselves with the sloppy and muddy slopes. Then go further up to reach the place! Highly overpriced! If you are game to kill yourselves each time you go... More

One of the problems with review sites is that reviews that aren't measured raise unrealistic expectations, then when these are not met, there is an adverse reaction. It should be made clear that Pink House is a budget hotel, albeit at the upper end. Having said that, it is without a doubt the best budget hotel in Mcleodganj. This is... More

The Pink House is a great taste of all things Dharamshala. The staff treats you like family, giving you advice on things to see, places to eat, and even taking the time to sit and have a cup of chai with you. I highly recommend staying at the Pink House, you will be exposed to great culture, people, and food!

I don't think I would have got a better stay anywhere in Mcleodganj for the price I paid and the service I received. This place is perfect for solo travellers. The view from the roof is mesmerizing to say the least! Nothing beats watching the mountains while sipping on their special "Kashmiri Tea", you seriously have to try that. Pink... More

I love Pink House. I have read a lot of the reviews and feel I should add to them and say, Pink House is an experience. It is a budget hotel but it offers special touches by the owner, Javid and his crew. I have traveled the world and stayed in 5 Star hotels but never have felt more comfortable,... More

Pink House is located conveniently, few minutes from the center of McLeodGanj yet off the main street so it is much calmer. Much has been said about access via stairs; as of April 2015 there were partially no stairs at all, leaving just muddy slope; the good news is new stairs are being build. There is an alternative route from... More

Let me start by stating the obvious - the stairs suck. But I personally liked the workout every morning of having to climb all the way to the main road, and both when I arrived and left a staff member was there to help carry all my bags. My room had a beautiful view of the mountains and I loved... More

Pink House is a budget property with overrated reviews. No one says the property is substandard, but the reviews raise the level of expectation to inappropriate levels. Rooms are basic but clean, views Ok, food compsi compsa, but staff definitely helpful. Go for it with eyes wide open and you will not be disappointed.

Excellent place for a stay in Mcleodganj. The staffs are awesome and they will help you regarding anything. I would like to mention of Javid and Ishfaq particularly who are great guys. The service is prompt, the view from the rooftop is great. Good news for people who cribbed about the endless stairs. New stairs have been constructed which will... More
