The room was clean, but the quality of the service was extremely poor. The owner, Vicky, was the most rude and unhelpful man I encountered during my 2 months in India. I asked for directions around Hampi, help with booking a train to Mysore, and to keep my room for the day while waiting for my night train, and he... More

To get the bad out of the way. The owner pulled one over on us, basically charging us double what it was worth. (Yeah our fault to agreeing to it without doing our research) also, they have a habit of locking the back door at like 9pm, which is only bad if you're in the ground floor room, which we... More

Room was fine, basic but value for price. Owner was very rude when we went elsewhere to book onward travel at half the price he quoted us (6 times more than if we had booked at the train station before arrival) He tried to charge more than agreed on booking. I left a ring in the room after checking out... More

I stayed one night. The room was ok,so basic but expensive comparing it's quality. At the beginning the owner was rude but then he changed his attitude. I asked for a ricksaw for the next day for going to Hospet and he arranged it very happily. The point was that another woman came with me in it and asked her... More

Vicky's Guest House in Hampi is a lovely family run guest house located in the bazaar, right next door to the excellent Tibetan rooftop restaurant. Corridors and rooms are immaculate and the shower has hot water. Mosquito net is provided and wifi works in the room. This place is not affected by power cuts. The guest house is well ventilated...

R600 started @ R750 As usual batting above their average: Hot or cold shower, literally, two separate shower heads & taps! One dripped continuously, uncomfortable bed-little bits sticking out (&in), which were mentioned, but nothing was offered to be done. Compared to some I looked at though, not bad, no where near as bad as Mumbai for not getting value... More

I stayed there because of the location, which is really good, and because they advertised "hot shower", which I really needed after two weeks freezing every morning in my bathroom. The "hot shower" was actually two different showers, a really hot one indeed, and a really cold, not mixing: you have to go from burning to freezing, and this is... More

Double room was clean but not to big.Hot water and real Wifi are the plusses. No restaurant in house but within 10 meter a very good rest. Rooftopview perfect. For me (age 57) this familyrun was really OK for Hampi. Next time again !! Alexander, Holland

Vicky's father was the only one who charged a fair Price. Rooms are clean, wifi was very good, Vicky and his father very helpful and friendly. Would definitly stay... More

Vicky's Guesthouse is all you need in Hampi: perfect location (in the bazar, but not in the middle of it), nice, simple, clean rooms, good value, great service, with an exquisite roof top restaurant and a travel agency, all wonderfully managed by Vicky who is warm, serious and highly professional.
