Pandim Guest House
Ranked #33 of 125 Darjeeling B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I stayed here for five nights in March 2013 while travelling with a friend, and we paid 400 rupees for a large twin room. The manager was very friendly and helped with all questions I had about the area, as well as letting me store my luggage free for a week while off trekking. The twin rooms are spacious, and have great views out over the valley. Additionally the wifi worked very well in the rooms which was rare among guest houses I stayed at in India. The only disadvantages were that there are currently no showers (he said they are planned in the future, and piping hot water buckets are available) and it is quite a long walk up the hill to the guesthouse from central Darjeeling. However, based on other backpacker properties I checked out, I feel it is a great value for money option.

Room Tip: The twin rooms are really spacious (400 rupees) each and have two double beds in them. I believe the...

Pandim Guesthouse is a very cozy place to stay in Darjeeling. The maneger was so nice to us and gave us the best service. He even arranged our trekking trip for us and we could let our loggage stay in his reception till we came back again. My boyfriend had his 21th birthday during our trekking and the maneger bought a special birthday cake for him so when we came home, he got this tasty cake delivered from Glenery's Bakery in Darjeeling.
I feel forever grateful for the amazing stay, Darjeeling wouldn't have been the same without staying in Pandim!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the right side, because they has a great view!

A very good and friendly Guest House. A bit basic but clean and good for the price you pay.
We've stayed here for 3 nights. The owner is very helpful and gives you honest information about things to do in the area, including information about the right price to pay. The matress was a bit hard, but that seems to be common in India;-) Hot shower, blankets and laundry available.

The guest house is located on the hillside and has a first class view from the balcony, when it is not rainy or clowdy. the rooms are bright and clean, well above indian standards, but the price remains resonable. The guest house accepts only international guests and the athmosphere is very relaxing. There was even a welcome tea upon arrival! Friendly family, good spoken English.

Room Tip: Just ask for one and you will like it.
