I've stayed at Mowgli twice and wanted to give it 2 stars the first time round. However the second time round I found that the cottages (where I stayed the first time) are poorly maintained, but the concrete rooms are slightly better. The view of the paddy fields and the river from the room was amazing and you can sit outside there all day and read a book or just simply just rejuvinate.
The electricity is shut down all over Hampi for half a day, so there is no hot water 24 hrs (in fact I never figured out what time it's available) even though they claim to have solar water heaters. So expect to have a freezing cold shower.
The restaurant has the same beautiful view and you can sit there all day making interesting conversation with fellow travellers. The food menu is not as extensive as other places nearby (like Nargila, Laughing buddha, Evergreen) but it is good nevertheless.
All-in-all, I rate it 4 stars because it is probably the best place to stay across the river (Virrapur Gaddi) having seen the rooms in Shanti, Nargila and Hema.
