Rocky's guesthouse is clean, well managed, and convenient to everything in Hampi. Rocky is very happy to give advice on how to spend you time in this wonderful town. He is very accommodating; we arrived from Bangalore at 6:30AM and of course nobody was awake, but Rocky let us in to sleep on a clean bed in the back until... More

Hampi is what it is and you must go there to experience. it's a fairly no thrills experience but this is what makes it the great place that it is. Rocky's is a great family run guesthouse and Rocky himself is a very helpful and kind man and a credit to his establishment. Whilst there he helped us with a... More

Rocky runs an excellent, family guesthouse in the old bazaar of Hampi, close to the the main Temple area and within walking distance of many of the main sights. The whole family are very welcoming and pleased to help in any way they can. We stayed for 9 nights and felt very at home. Rocky is extremely efficient in booking... More

Firstly - Hampi is a much do for anyone travelling in South India. It's very remote which is why it is not more popular but there is so much to see (ruins, temples everywhere). The town is all very cheap and laid back (hippy vibe). There are no Western style or luxurious hotels in Hampi as they are all small... More

This simple, clean well run guest house is a very comfortable central place to stay while exploring hampi. What truly makes it an excellent experience is the warm, generous, benevolent family that runs it. Rocky is patient and kind, as he helped us to book bus and train tickets,arranged rickshaws with the hilarious Raja, and explained a bit about local... More

The room was comfortable and clean. It wasn’t luxurious but it had everything one could need to be comfortable. Plus good wifi connection!  Guesthouse is run by Rocky and his family. Rocky is incredibly nice and friendly without being intrusive. He made sure we were comfortable and everything about our stay was pleasant. He also has a small travel agency... More

Hampi is a unique place. It is worth every single km of the long travel and once in there, you have to stay at the sacred center to fully appreciate it. Rocky's Guesthouse is perfect to explore Hampi during the day, but also once the sun sets over the magnificent Virupaksha Temple. By staying on the other side of the... More

Rocky is a lovely man. So lovely that I am loath to write anything negative about the accommodation. He is a family man and a real gentleman. He is honest and will help you in any way he can. His staff are lovely. The accommodation is located in the perfect spot, central to everything. Breakfast is included - its tea/coffee... More

We recently stayed 4 nights in Hampi and selected Rocky's due to the great reviews. We were not disappointed. Rocky is indeed incredibly helpful and provides a variety of services and advice without any pressure. The room was very clean, breakfast is a la carte and the guest house is in an excellent location.
