The catch-line of this hotel (see title above) is really no lie... In my case, I stayed here several times and I do in fact have quite a story to tell for each of my stays! The people I met here have taken me on very unexpected journeys, from the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal to the festival of La Merce... More

'Thank you' seems like such a small word in front of this review so I won't say it. Because appreciation is one thing but affection is something else. Feeling comfortable is one thing but believing that our place is magical is supreme. Finding likeminded people is one thing but finding a soulmate is all the more special. This is a... More

I found this hotel scouring lots of websites and decided to take a punt. I was not disappointed at all and it was real value for money. The restaurant staff are particularly attentive and I recommend the chicken pakora with a kingfisher....delish!

Thank you Rakesh!!!:-))) This hotel is comfortable! It is kept clean very much, and the staff accepts a careful order. When I bought the ticket of the train, they helped me. There is not readily this quality in India. There is a cold wind plane, and the room without an air-conditioner is comfortable, too. There is the hot shower naturally,... More

We found this hotel while looking for a cheap, clean and cozy budget hotel. We asked for a room for four, which was possible, and as we stayed for a very long and it wasn't the season, we even got a great discount! The room and the bedsheets were clean, we had a small balcony just outside the room and... More

I found this hotel by chance and was extremely lucky to do so. The staff was great and the rooms were spotless. The hotel manager Mr. Rakesh was extremely hospitable, and responsive to my every need. He will welcome you as if you were a family member. If you're looking for an affordable place to stay whose rooms are comparable... More

I stayed in this hotel for a day in a A/C dormitory. The hotel has free wi-fi and near to top restaurants of jaipur.

WoW! This is what a budget hotel is there for. So that you have a clean and comfortable resting nest after a serious round of binging on the street and exposing your tongue to some of the rare Indian spices that rajasthan so proudly boasts of. Thank you so much for mentioning some of the very best that Jaipur has... More

I came here in July 2013. I loved this hostel since the beginning. It let me know a lot of others solo travellers, the staff was welcoming and pleased to help me sorting out what to do in Jaipur. Fresh air in the rooms, free wifi, amazing rooftop. What else?
