“Lovely family homestay and good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

We are just sat enjoying our breakfast on the roof terrace here before we check out. Late check out at 12 is great, the welcome on arrival by the cute manager, the father ( i think the son is the manager and father the owner) is very helpful when arranging taxi and figuring out which direction to walk to places. The room is large, clean bed sheets, hot water, balcony if you are like us and needed to wash clothes, no loo roll mind. This is not a hotel so do not expect the added extras of water, kettle, toiletries. It gives you a good, safe and homely place to stay at a very good cost. I have just had a massive bowl of muesli, yoghurt and fruit and i would highly recommend it along with the sweet lime pineapple juice. The fan and ac were great. The man who paints the art on the walls is lovely, do ask to look at his photo album as he is very proud of it and he is so good. If you are a solo woman traveller i imagine that you would feel really safe here, the young manager guy has good english and will help you with a map etc. always rickshaws outside and a good location for everywhere. A lovely stay and so reasonable regarding cost.

With its' warm and friendly atmosphere Vinayak is more than a hostel. The rooms and building are beautiful and clean. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Area is excellent. Thank you for the great stay!

Best guesthouse I've stayed in in India, friendly staff, good food and a nice room all for a good price. The staff are very helpful and the roof top is a great place to spend the evening, playing boardgames with the staff and chilling out with a cold beer. I'd recommend it for anyone visiting Jaipur.

Vinayak guesthouse might not be situated perfectly, but a tuk tuk will take you anywhere in a jiffy for a nominal charge.

It is owned by a loving family that made me feel welcome at once. They were so helpful to assist in arranging my onward journey as well as give me tips on what else I see in Jaipur (apart from what is listed in lonely planet).

They have rooms with and without bathroom. If you're taking a room with a shared bathroom, it's absolutely fine. Bathrooms are clean!

Their rooftop restaurant is great and serves good breakfast starting from 50 Rs for an omelet.

Would definitely recommend this place!

This guesthouse was a nice place to stay. The staff were very attentive and accommodating. We arrived late at night and the owner opened up the kitchen and fed us. There is not much in walking distance but tuk tuks are cheap and easy.

A lovely backpackers guesthouse a few minutes walk from the rail station, Ramen and his family were extremely welcoming and would always have time to give you advice about the best places to go and where not to go! Ramen's father even took time to show us how to eat thali like a true Indian, rooms are clean, comfortable and at a good price. There is also a great rooftop to chill out on with free wifi in the whole building, a good place to meet other travellers, food is good and good prices.

Lovely family run guesthouse. They are all extremely friendly. Try to avoid the tuktuk drivers outside as they try to rip you off ridiculously! Walk out onto the main street where it is cheaper. There were no faults with this place...except don't order a milk tea from the restaurant!
