Mcleodganj Homestay... A place which is located just a mere 5 min. Walk from the busy town of Mcleodganj is a cute little house which made my stay wonderful... I had taken the standard room in the Homestay the room was very cozy and clean......great food....great location and such nice view from your breakfast table......... The icing on the top is the people managing the Homestay are so very kind...... I just never wanted to leave the place but since I had a meditation course in lower Dharamshala I had to leave this peaceful place...... Two thumbs up to Mcleodganj Homestay.......I will be back after my meditation course.....

Loved position, food and assistance, however rooms are a bit too dusty and maybe overpriced when compared with similar accommodations in the same village. The view from the room was very nice and the place was quiet, only thing I think room should be dusted more often.

I stayed in McLeod Ganj Homestay with my wife for two nights during our 20 days trip to India. The staff is very nice, as the place is a family run business. In fact, they claim to be "not only one more hostel or guesthouse but a home away from home", which is nice! The restaurant serves really good food (it may take a long time, be prepared). Despite these good things, in my humble opinion, I believe it's a little bit overpriced for the city standards. Both the room and the bathroom are small and very simple for the money we paid. I don't intend to be back in McLeod Ganj soon, but next time I'd search for a cheaper place or for a better quality for this price.

Our this guest unfortunately booked through a travel agent who charges 25-30% on top of our price as their commission , otherwise this guest has given excellent marks to our location, very good marks to our sleep quality and very good marks to service.
So far the room sizes are concerned we also have rooms upto 300 sq. ft. We request this guest to book their room directly through us for the next time and get the value of your money.

My heartiest thanks to Mcleodganj Homestay ... And sarin family for making all the efforts for making my stay comfortable and making me feel as a family member .... Special thanks to Mrs. Sarin for making such delicious food and Sahil for taking care of rest of the things ....like touring,local sightseeing and giving knowledge of the local restaurants ( Although I ate just two times outside ) Since Sarin's have in-house restaurants which serves exclusive bar-b-que. Initially I made booking for 3 days at Homestay but I was so impressed with cleanliness specially comfortable bed with attached bath. Moreover the positive approach of all the family members towards all the guests and I finally stayed for 12 days . I strongly recommend this place for standard tourist who's looking for simple yet comfortable option....

It was a wonderful experience to stay at McLeodganj Homestay. I was patting my back for deciding to go for it and not to a typical hotel. The warmth of the place, the hosts and the magic of the surroundings made the trip worthwhile and memorable. Loved the rooms, the food and the location of the place. Aloof yet approachable, peaceful yet not distant - making it an apt choice for anyone travelling to McLeodganj. The one man army (Sahil Sarin) provided all the necessary help and information regarding the stay as well as places to be visited in and around Dharamshala...to the extent of being ready to speak to the rent-a-bike service provider on our behalf. Cudos to the Sarins for fantastic facility and their hosting abilities. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All the rooms are well done and are equally cozy and warm. Take your pick depending on the group siz...

You've probably been travelling a while when you reach McLeod Ganj. The pollution of India's cities still in your throat. So, what a pleasant surprise to discover this Homestay. Indeed, you actually feel at home from the moment you arrive. A chi or coffee offered straight away.

Located just up the hill from McLeod its situation is perfect for both relaxation and exploration. Make sure you're up early to catch the early sun on the terrace amongst the profusion of plants and flowers decorating the deck. I recommend the pancakes for breakfast as they are delicious and a welcome break from the usual fare.

Our room was light, airey and comfortable and Wifi available in room, a must for us travellers.

All the guys there are happy to serve your needs, in particular Anil who speaks excellent English.

Stay a few days if you can and the Himalayan air will refresh you for the onward journey.

One of the best places to stay in McLeodganj I must say. Homestay is off the market & crowded areas yet not too far from it. It is located at a spot which is the ideal Holiday spot where there is not too much of noise coming in. The view from the place was fantastic, all green & clean and at it's best when the weather got a bit foggy. Homestay not being a typical hotel is run by the Sarin family and the best part was that Mr. Sarin and their boys made you feel very comfortable & were always their to help us & advise us about places to visit & things to do. One other good thing about the location was that as it just a kilometer away from the market area so the walk up & down is always a nice one.

The food was good as well. Nothing too oily & Hotel types and. Mrs. Sarin had plenty to offer on her menu. They have a beautiful patio kind of a thing with a fire place where you can enjoy you teas & coffees in the day and maybe a few beers in the evening by the fire place. The rooms were clean and decently spacious. Although their is no phone based room service but the properly was closely held & someone or the other from the family was always there to assist you. All in all it was a very nice experience with the Sarin's & if I choose to come back for his Holiness's The Dalai Lam's session next time. I would definitely comeback to Homestay for obvious reasons. Cheers !!
