I spent on Mowgli guest house at Hampi 4 nights. The place is clean and nice. Breakfast and dinner are good and the staff is very friendly. There is a hammock for each room in which you can relax . you can do laundry, rent a bike, buy fruits nearby. I love this place

Would like to say that the first impression of this place may be below average but it truly manages to offer a awesome experience and some soul searching moments. The moment I eneterd this property I felt disappointment... while finishing the formalities at the reception I was further worried about the experience i would carry back...was further demotivated by seeing...

The room was very dirty and full of ants and bugs. The food was mostly OK but sometimes it was terrible. The young Nepali boys who work there are very nice but the manager is disgusting. We booked an air-conditioned room but the power was rarely on so we barely used it, literally had it for 10 mins - not... More

A really awesome place, Quiet and tranquil! The restaurant is very good and the rooms clean. We really enjoyed our time here. The staff were friendly and helpful. We spent 6 days here and enjoyed every minute of it. The inconsistent electricity and numerous insects may put off some but coming from South Africa, we are fairly accustomed to it.

The worst place I have ever stayed. I was only there for one night and that was bad enough. Staff were beyond rude and unhelpful. Room was disgusting. Blood stains on sink AND towels. Bugs everywhere(which I was fine with but waking up with the on your face was a bit much). The food was their only saving grace. Don't... More

Huts: Cute organized and clean. Attached to them a clean toilet with a good shower. in front of every hut there is a bed swing and a mattress to relax and read. Atmosphere: Hampi is a relaxing place and Mowgli adds to this atmosphere. Surrounded by mango trees and plants with cute café viewing the horizon with comfy floor sitting... More
