Very nice and neat room! It looks very cosy and the manager and especially booking manager provides good service. Breakfast is included and the dinners you can order are very tasty. Downside is no wifi and a bit of a walk from town, but you know that in advance :) and the beds are very hard. good hiking in the... More

This homestay was one of the best places I stayed at in India! It is quite a walk from the villages bhagsu and mcleod, but the peace is worth it. The rooms are really nice and clean, you can provide your own warm water with the boiler. Only downside; the beds are very hard! The family is very nice, especially... More

A really beautiful guesthouse with very nice owners. Has a fantastic view of the whole valley. It's an easy walk to Bhagsu which is fun but a bit too backpackery; certainly seemed very western. The walk up to Triund pass was one of the best we saw on our whole trip with very easy access from the guesthouse (it's about... More

I stayed at Jagatram Niwas from 30 Sep to 4 Oct. it is an immaculately clean place, with spotless linen and very clean rooms and bathroom. It has great views of the Dharamkot Valley and great birding in the Nala behind. Areas requiring considerable improvement for a great experience is the quantity and quality of food which currently leaves much... More

We stayed their in Oct 2014 and honestly the accommodation is not good for a group of friends heading to Mclo. for chilling as there are too many restrictions. the free breakfast was never included as we were charged for the same. you can not sit outside in the open area in the night unless you decide to keep the...

This was my first trip to Dharamsala. Stayed : 15 Aug to 17 Aug We wanted to stay at a place away from city turbulence. It was quiet and peaceful. People who appreciate natural beauty would love this place. Room was neat and clean. It was fun using common kitchen as I am pretty naive at cooking. Food provided at... More

We stayed at Jagatram Niwas for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We took ample advantage of the view down over the valley while hanging out on the balcony, and spent much time wandering through the hills. The walks to Dharamkot and Bhagsu are very charming, and you'll get in good shape fast! The morning breakfast was nice,... More

I was at the Jagatram Niwas guest house for a week in mid June. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, particularly the commute on foot to Mcleod, which by the way could be a discouraging factor for those not used to walking. Because of its location, you can access Mcleod either through Bhgasunag or Dharamkot, which gives you an opportunity to... More

I spent two nights at this guesthouse on 17-19 June 2014. I made the online booking smoothly by contacting Matthew before I flied off from Hong Kong. The Guesthouse was located in the upper mountain area overlooking the beautiful villages among the natural scenery. My host Bavinder was very nice, friendly and helpful. He helped me arrange a one-day trekking... More
