Paid 400 rps for a double room in low season. Pros: location, room size, price, tourist office attached, plenty of restaurants/shops/bars/cafes near by, nice staff Cons: shared bathroom for some of the rooms NOTE: we picked up a tour guide called Solais (in French means sun, in Kannada means mosquito - called because he is so small!). Not sure if... More

This is a clean, well thought out guest house in Hampi. The rooms are bright and modern. What makes it really special is how helpful Rocky is. He helped us navigate the Indian railway system and enjoy a wonderful couple of days in Hampi. Thank-you Rocky!

We were so happy to come back to Hampi and stay with Rocky again. To have banana coconut parathas for breakfast while seated on the roof terrace again was something we had been dreaming of for the last two years. Rocky is still just as welcoming and helpful. We will be back.

Completely average. Rocky gave good advice on what to see. Rooms got really warm. Otherwise it was OK enough. Make sure you eat at the mango tree restaurant down the road, and of course see all the temples.

Stayed here for three nights in March. This guesthouse is on the main Temple side of the river where all the ruins are. Staying her means you are very close to all the ruins and the bazar, but will be unable to have a beer at the end of the day as its a dry village, due to it being... More

As I was planning my solo visit to Hampi, most of my concerned friends suggested staying at Hospet for safety and better options of hotels there. I took a leap of faith and booked a room at Rocky Guest house after reading multiple good reviews on tripadvisor. And I must say it was worth it. Hampi is so much more... More

This place is perfect for staying in Hampi. The family running it are so friendly and kind. The food is fab, loved the dosa and lassi for breakfast - yummy. It is situated right in the middle of the ruins... they surround it so it is very cool to sit on the roof terrace and look all around at wonderful... More
