“A backpacker's paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

It's a nice little family-run guesthouse with a warm atmosphere, located in the middle of the town, right behind the Ram Raja temple. The rooms are situated around an inside patio where you can hang out with fellow travellers.
We stayed in a double room with attached bathroom for 5 days in April. The room was spacious, big comfortable bed, built-in shelves to put your stuff, a perfectly working shower (strongest water flow ever ;)!!!!!), western toilet, everything clean, free Wi-Fi (good connection), silent at night, heard no noise from neighbouring rooms, friendly staff.
Even during the hot season the room was quite cool at night and till noon, but in the evening it was getting very hot. A fan helped a bit and there were no problems for keeping the windows open as they had mosquito nets and security bars.
Very good value, you feel like at home and yes, they give you free chai a few times a day! :)
I definitely recommend it.

OK, first off, I gotta tell you — these guys give you free Chai. Free Chai! Imagine that! If that's not enough to persuade you to come to this lovely little place, I don't know what is.

There are maybe 6–7 rooms, and the 2 next to the road are a little less than salubrious — go for one of the others with attached bathrooms. All are situated around a courtyard that serves pretty great thali and egg curry. There are many more options, but I stuck to what I thought they'd be good at — and they excelled. I think there are even some Korean options on the menu as the guesthouse is featured in a popular Korean guidebook.

They supply free wifi, and complementary use of their laptop if you want to borrow one. The guys who work here go a mile out of their way to look after you, and can be trusted to find you rickshaws (and bikes and everything else) for a decent price if you ask nicely.

The beds aren't all that great, the rooms are ok, the courtyard is nice but sunless, the 'temple view' is rather overstated — but the whole package is a budget traveller's dream. The staff are hugely welcoming, and I didn't want to leave. Also: Free Chai.
