The Yellow Guesthouse was one of the best places to stay in India! I stayed there twice and i can only echo what has already been said. I was welcomed heartily the first time and after a strenuous trip to ladakh it felt like returning home on my second stay. Here are some things about the yellow guesthouse: - it... More

Echoing what others have said, this place is very good value for money with a clean room, ensuite, good Wifi, extremely friendly staff. The fantastic & affordable restaurant (Japanese, Indian) restaurant in the basement was the highlight, really healthy well-made food. Highly recommended for budget travelers. Our only issue was the bolt on the outside of our door didn't fit... More

it wasn't so much the hotel as it was the "family feeling". i must admit i might have had one of the better rooms with lots of space and light. the hosts jai and motoko-san couldn't be better hosts. the food there was always delicious….how often do you really get vegetables that are not over-cooked?? except for the occasional dog...

Heard about this place when it first opened through word of mouth and found it to be incomparable to other accommodation in Rishikeshi. Very clean, the staff/owners are wonderful people and Jay is an excellent chef. Also has access to a nice roof top to practice yoga while overlooking rishikesh.

The hotel has clean rooms with hot water and WiFi. The basement restaurant doubles up as the lobby is a fun place to interact with other guests mostly Japaneese,Spanish,... More

Great value hotel right next to Anand Prakesh Ashram. They have a nice restaurant downstairs with a good variety of food and a fast WiFi connection. It's a good option if you don’t want to stay at the Anand Prakesh Ashram, you can stay here and pay individually for each yoga class you attend.
