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. LMB Hotel, Rawat kachori, Kanji sweets, Nataraj Restaurant, OM Tower are just walkable if you like walking. I was new to Jaipur and the Owner of the hotel helped me to get from the bus and... More

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?

I was looking for a hotel that will see the World Cup. So I found this hotel. Also, I was glad also free Wi-Fi. (Other hotels need to pay.) The room is clean, the staff was also friendly. You can become friends with tuk-tuk driver.
