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...

We could have stayed there for a few months... For us, this is the perfect place: Cheap, very good value for money, clean room, hot shower, good Wifi, extremely friendly staff, fantastic & affordable restaurant (Japanese, Indian) restaurant in the basement. Highly recommended for budget travelers!

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.

There come a time where emotions are hard to be replaced by words. This is my experience so far in this wonderful guesthouse with the amazing owner and staff, which feel much more like friends. I had planned to stay a few days, but stayed 3 weeks. Rishikesh by itself is great and calming, yet that peacefulness was enhanced by... More

This guest house is run by a lovely young family who speak multiple languages. They are very helpful and will get you anything you need. The guest house is very comfortable, the rooms clean and bright. There is no a/c but there are ceiling fans. Some rooms have western toilets but others do not. So, check first if that is... More
