Stayed here for a night and was given a comfortable double bed room with a clean (but tiny!) bathroom/shower. The family were helpful and helped provide directions to restaurants and places of interest. Rocky helped me book a bus ticket for a private bus as well which was much appreciated. Wifi was available and usable. I phoned up before hand... More

We enjoyed a lovely few days in Hampi and Rocky Guesthouse. We arrived tired at 7am after a long bus journey from Mysore and were immediately welcomed by Rocky and shown to the roof terrace where we could enjoy the nice view and some breakfast. Our room was spotlessly clean, relatively spacious and had a comfortable bed, AC and a... More

Decent room in a good, quiet location near the river and main bazaar. The best things about our stay were the gorgeous children and the friendly family atmosphere. Rocky was very helpful with giving advice about activities and transport (and not at all pushy). The location is nice and safe for solo female travellers. Highly recommend staying here.

We stayed here for a night during August 2014 and we were very happy with the stay. Rocky was really helpful throughout the trip. The rooms were ready by the time we reached. It was clean and compact! Towels and toiletries were provided and hot water was always available. He also provided free Wireless connection, which worked well. Rocky helped... More

We spent a lovely time at Rocky’s Homestay in Hampi. The room was quite decent and was outfitted with very useful anti-mosquito nets. The place also served delicious breakfasts, amazing homemade mango lassis, and the hotel has a beautiful rooftop. A good place to base yourself in Hampi!

Went travelling all over India and this was by far the best hotel. We managed to barter the room down to roughly £1 a night. Woke up one morning to a cow outside the window mooing, another morning woke up early to go and see an elephant washing in the river next door. Cafe for morning breakfast offers breathtaking views...

Rocky is a very good host. We loved talking to him. We arrived in Hampi early in the morning after an overnight bus ride from Goa. We were pretty tired and Rocky let us check in even if it was 8 am. The guesthouse has the feeling you are staying in your own house away from home. It is conveniently... More

Stayed here over a weekend. Clean rooms, little bit on the smaller side but comfortable. It's a pure home stay, they don't have fancy rooms for dining like most other guest houses, but their food was still one of the best I tasted over my weekend there, simple, tasty and consistent. Rocky was very friendly and helped us plan our... More

A nice clean place run by a lovely family. Rocky might be the kindest man in India. He helps with booking transportation, setting up sight seeing and even checking up on me and bringing medication when I was sick. Location is excellent for temple viewing.
