So far my best stay in Hampi. Shanti guest layout is a good spot, this place give a lovely vibe, its simplicity in design and materials give this layout more earthy feeling. We loved and enjoyed our two nights stay completely. Staff were very friendly. Food was fresh made and tasty. Rooms are neat and OK types. Would be great... More

We stayed in one of the rooms with no en-suite bathroom as that was all that was available by the time we arrived on 2nd Jan 2016 (we thought we had a reservation but turns out booking.com didn't forward them our confirmation so they had no record of it...) Though the room was basic it had lovely clean sheets and... More

Although the rooms are basic, but the location is great. Having your breakfast overlooking the paddy fields is a nice experience. To visit the Hampi heritage site Tungbhadra river has to be crossed by motor-boats. Food was good.

The other side of Thungabadra river is a chill out area teeming with backpackers from all over the world, in contrast to the temple side which is sedate, vegetarian and non alcoholic. There are umpteen restaurants with all kinds of cuisine, and they don't mind taking your bottle in, to have it leisurely on bed-on-the-floor seating. Shanti is popular being... More

Good location... immediate first impression was that it was a lovely vibe, and that staff were very friendly. Then we had a terrible breakfast in the food area, that was really grubby up close. We were staying in the rooms without attached bathrooms... the rooms were dirty and the toilet/shower rooms were gross. They didn't get cleaned the whole three... More

This place is at a very convenient location and nicely takes care of all the basic requirements of a traveler. The 1st thing that you notice after coming to the property is its chilled-out atmosphere. The cottages are cute and the swings truly complete them. Food is manageable with few options but chilling at the restaurant while facing the paddy... More

A very nice place with an amazing view of the paddy feilds stepping down towards the river. The rooms have a big verandah to sit and enjoy the view. The rooms are good and well maintained. You need to close the rooms properly to prevent the mosquitos entering the room. This place is on the other side of hampi in... More

Pros - 10 mins walk to the ferry place from where you can take the ferry to cross the river to reach Hampi. Decent food. The rooms are clean with basic aminities in place. Cons - Too many mosquitos. Customer service is provided if you ask for it. I don't mean they are rude or anything close to it but... More

Shanthi guesthouse has a relaxing and laid back energy as soon as you enter. The grounds are beautiful- cute one story cottages with a hammock out front, and a (lovely decorated) cafe/restaurant with beautiful views over rice paddies and palm trees. Food is terrific- recommend eating Israeli or Indian. The rooms are basic but are comfortable. A bed, bathroom and... More
