We (me and my wife) visited Ooty on 16th Jun 2012. It was off-season for Ooty. I had booked Anandagiri (Y.W.C.A of India Project) couple of months before just by email confirmation without paying anything nor providing my credit card details. Well, booked an budget cottage (Tariff Rs 660/- including taxes). Room was spacious and average. Just ok for staying.... More

Recently stayed at YWCA during the long mayday weekend. This was an impromptu plan to Ooty and hence getting accommodation was never going to be easy. My friend suggested this place and hence we were lucky enough to get a room to stay for a night. It was a budget place which is opposite the racecourse hence its located on... More

For the price of the room, they are offering way beyond my expectation. Room is clean, and spacious, 19th century charm. Bathroom is across the corridor so not very convenient but it is spotlessly clean. The location of the guesthouse is amazing, very close to everything, and it is extremely quiet. Wifi only works in the reception and it is... More

The standard room was clean and spacious with very high ceilings which made the room so cold! it was colder inside the room than it was outside! Bathroom was across the corridor which was abit strange but it was clean and had hot water. Make sure you ask for extra blankets. Breakfast was nothing special just average.I wouldn't stay here...

The guest house has a home like feeling with beautiful surrounding. It is clean and simple cottage at very reasonable price. The staff is very helpful and the food we get is very delicious. A nice place to stay whenever you visit.

Firstly I would like to state that this is a guest house,, its not a hotel, please don't expect things that you would normally expect in a hotel, the place is clean & tidy, the cottages are very spacious, you will not get anything bigger than those cottages in Ooty at those prices. The bathrooms in the cottage are as... More

Before you read on, please know that no actual trekking is available in Ooty anymore, due to wild animal encounters. YMCA is a complex of cottages and the main building with its own green grounds 15min walk from Ooty bus station. You cannot feel the dust and honk of Ooty at all. The place certainly has its own nunnery character... More

I stayed here in one of the budget rooms on my own and it was a great stay. There was a lot going on at the complex-some kind of function and a wedding-nice vibe. The best part of the place was the staff on the front desk-so helpful they helped me arrange and coordinate my onward travel and little day... More
