My cousin and I went there expecting nothing. It was an impromptu trip. Jagatram Niwas was more than what we could have asked for. It was clean and well maintained with a kitchen. It felt so homely. Getting there was a bit of a challenge though.It took us about 25 to 30 mins of hiking to get there. I would,... More

The guesthose was very clean. Bavinder and his team were very nice and helped where they could. I would definitely reccomend it! Although the next supermarket is in Bhagsu, it is worth climbing all the stairs.

This is a refreshing homestay. After traveling through India and staying in various hostels, this one is a breath of fresh air. Very clean, comfy, beautiful rooms, and a great view. It is a bit of a hike from tour spots, but not too bad. It's also at the base of the big hike up the Dharmasala mountains that end... More

Pros first: Nice clean place. Good helpful people. Good service. Great view. You ask why the 3 Stars then? Con: The path to the guesthouse leaves you exhausted. Until and unless you are an athlete I dont think you can reach there in 10-15 mins. It took us 40-45 mins every time to reach there. 40 mins of arduous trek.... More

I was travelling solo to Dharamsala for 4 days. Stayed here at this wonderful guesthouse with Bhavinder and his family. Set a little off the beaten path by foot, it provided a brisk morning walk down into the main part of Bhagsunag and quite the trek back up the same way, for amateur mountaineers it would be quite a good...

We stayed with Bavinder, Rekha and family for a month, while my wife did a yoga teaching course at a school nearby. Jagatram Niwas is a large, freshly painted (in mint green) guesthouse/homestay in Heini village above Dharamkot and Bhagsunag. While a walk to get to from both villages (or a car to Heena cafe), the location is stunning with... More

It is very badly placed, have to make loads of efforts to reach there. The management was badly behaved, even the food was costly and lacked variety. Nothing seems inviting over here. People wander drunk in the lobby.

Jagat Ram Niwas is a terrible place to stay. To reach this place is itself a mission. No transport connectivity. You have to walk miles to reach this place and that too on steep paths with your luggage. The owner is so rude and treats Indians very badly. A line what he said to us is "Indians ka to kaam...

The host family is most gracious and welcoming, a very enjoyable family to spend your vacation with. The food is excellent. The scenery is phenomenal, the view is spectacular and far enough away from the city so you can get some peace and quiet. The perfect place for a quiet retreat.
