...I have to agree with some of the less enthusiastic reviews. This guest house has all the potential of becoming outstanding, but it is the attention to details that keeps it from fulfilling its potential: rooms are *almost* in great shape, *almost* spotless, staff is *almost* helpful (and that's when cricket isn't on... if it is, expect to be ignored), laundry is *almost* ready when you're already packing to check out, rooms are *almost* well-priced.

Note that location is not convenient for intensive sightseeing - this is a place to come and chillax, and not much else. Rooms are expensive for what you get (even in the low season), although the views are spectacular. The restaurant is a great place for meeting other travellers in the evenings, but is also priced like a tourists' venue, while across the river food is a 1/3 of what it costs here (of course there is no practical way to get across the river for dinner since the boat stops running at 6pm).

Know what you're getting and what it costs, accept the price for what it is, and you might have a good time here.

Watch for anything that may crawl up your toilet - I had a friendly frog hanging out in the water when I needed to use the bathroom at 2am.

Room Tip: Not sure the rooms with a view, which go for Rs 800, are actually worth more than the Rs 500 rooms with no view. You can get the same view from the restaurant.

Had a river room, very nice view from the terrace, but because of the hotels cows and garbage just behind the rooms there were so many flies during the day that it was no fun to be outside. And in the night plenty of mosquitoes in and outside. The huts have open space between Walls and roof. Room was not cleaned very well, and badly maintained. Restaurant is nice, good food and friendly service.
Reception friendly and helpful.
Stayed for 5 nights, this was fine to see Hampi.
Mowgli is fine, but the rooms are not ok for the price you pay.

Just a noce place to stay, room was again basic but had hot water and an aircon and fan. You can sit in the communal area and just relax. Nice little restaurant with good food. You can go walking in the paddy fields and down to the river, beautiful sunsets. Beautiful relaxing place, I will got back.

Quiet location, very close to nature, away from the noise of Hampi town.
Excellent food, and the boys who serve are very decent.
Room can use some upgrades (specially bathroom) to make your in-room stay better.
They arranged for sight-seeing and made useful suggestions.
The courtyard is a wonderful place to relax. The adjacent paddy fields are definitely to be recommended for an early morning or late evening walk to the quiet riverside.

Room Tip: The new rooms are probably better equipped (we stayed in the old cottages, which has its own charm) We stayed in 23 which has a good view of the paddy fields.

Surrounded by paddy fields, its a perfect place if your looking for that one place to escape from the busy world. the food here is really good. My most memorable thing would be the early morning walk from our room acroos the fields to the banks of the river. i couldn't ask more!!!

Room Tip: choose the river view room, they are the best ones!
