Had a great experience at the Hill top Swiss Cottage. The manager / owner was friendly and helpful. The room itself was fairly basic but the location was quiet, away from the noise of the town. There is everything you might need in the small area including restaurants, small shops, yoga and travel agents. We had an entirely positive experience... More

Great budget guesthouse with friendly staff and positive outlook. It's up the hill, so you get a bit of work out too as you go to the room. Views from the highest rooms are great. Manu's yoga class in the morning was brilliant and well worth getting up early for. Good vibrations hang in the air over the hill....

This is a good property to stay in budget price. The owner is nice and soft spoken person and mostly foreigners prefer stay in this area coz properties have less tariff. Parking is on the road and one has to walk around 80 mtrs to reach this hotel. Rooms are equiped with all basic amenities including AC, TV and Refrigerator.

I have stayed here twice and enjoyed Hill Top both times. Vil, the manager is kind, friendly, and very accommodating. Ask for a room with a balcony to be able to watch the monkeys play in the trees in the morning. The rooms are simple and clean. Hot water and a close walk to the center of town.

be prepared for a big hike up to your room but once you are there it is peaceful and beautiful. There is a place to do yoga as you look over the view of the valley below. And it is not often you will find a place with a bathtub which was great after walking and hiking in the heat... More

As the name says its on top of a complex of diffrent hostels. Hippie rustic place, so dont expect luxurys. Vir is the owner and he is a great honest guy. He gave us the room 403 with a great balcony view for same price as the cheap ones. Generally its clean (remember its in the middle of a hill)... More
