We arrived at the pinkhouse on the 17th Dec and we're booked to stay for 3 days. Our initial response was one of slight despair looking at the goat track that we needed to descend, with packs on our backs we headed down. I knew I had done something to my back by the time I had reached the bottom.... More

Well there were some renovation work going on in the hotel the time we visited so the access was not at all up to the mark. We had to get down some stairs to reach the hotel and they were in terrible conditions(continuous rains made it worse) There were no stairs virtually the way down, looked liked a trek itself.Anyways...

Javid, the owner of Pink House, was very helpful and friendly, answering questions about my reservation and upcoming visit to Dharamsala. He arranged for a ride from the airport in Gogol for 700 rupees ($11.35) upon arrival, which I thought was a decent price by US standards for a 10-mile taxi ride. Considering that the taxi from my hotel in... More

My room was decent, but considering the surrounding noise from the construction work, lack of privacy (Indian tourists from neighboring high-rise hotels tended to stare down at me when I was breakfasting on my balcony), and steep climb to get to the main road, I didn't find it was worth 1200 rupees per night. What will prevent me from returning... More

Pinkhouse is located bang in the middle of Jogiwara road and probably boasts of the best views in McLeod from each and every private balcony. The rooms are large enough, clean, well kept, they provide heaters at extra costs for the really cold nights. The staff is helpful and polite and quite hardworking. The steps for me were no problem.... More

Cold rooms, broken toilet, mediocre slightly expensive food on the no ambience cafe on the roof, poor wifi reception, weird smoke glass in the bathroom instead of a mirror, slightly expensive rooms made the lowlights of this decent hostel in Mcleod Ganj. The view was incredible however, and the service was pretty good. I enjoyed the stay, but overall I... More

Its a decent guest house situated on Jogiwara road. Its a nice, neat and clean guest house which is pretty close to Mcleod Ganj market. Rooms are spacious and clean with private balconies. Though its a nice budget hotel but shedding a little more money could fetch you nice view from balcony. Hotel staff is polite and cooperative with quick... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel from The 7th Sep. Overall its a nice place to stay, peaceful and with a good view from the terrace. The hospitality was good and so was the food. The only thing that you might be bothered is walking to and out of the hotel. There is a huge case of stairs... More

The photos make the place look like the ultimate destination, but it really isn't. When we went, the place was under construction and the rooms were musty and damp. It was kind of disappointing at first, but if you're not too picky, it's alright. You will definitely find a better place at these prices though, and in a better location.... More
