“Good food”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

The place serves good and reasonably priced food, with several Israeli and Middle-Eastern options. We did not stay there though. The restaurant has an area to lounge with a view of the river which is overrun with backpackers and goan tourists.

This is a good choice, if you are looking for camping like facility. However, if you are looking for hotel / resort style, this definitely not the place.
Positives: 1. The owner & staff are very responsive and try to help where possible. 2. The quality of food is good. 3. The location is scenic and very near to Hampi. 4. The idea of being close to nature and away from TV etc. is also good.
Negatives: 1. Cleanliness needs a big and serious change over. 2. Complete lack of sign board and clear directions to the place. 3. Basic provisions like of wash basin or hot water are not consistently available in all rooms. 4. Provisions like towels etc. not good if at all once gets it

Room Tip: Go for rooms facing paddy fields for nice view. Check for wash basin & properly flushing toilets

We had such a wonderful 9 day stay at Mowgli. The staff are friendly and helpful, the views spectacular and it was generally a great place. Some rooms are definitely better than others, some areas of the resort can be a little noisy, but we will still be taking away wonderful memories and would come back again.

Mowgli guesthouse is a peaceful sanctuary; the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff are friendly amd helpful and the food is good, especially the oven baked pizzas. It is a great place to relax with lovely river views and swimming a stones throw away. It also has a fantastic range of facilities from a motorbike hire, with internet with wifi and laundry service available. All in all a great place to meet new people.Thanks to all the Mowgli's staff for their top class service. As soon as you arrived at he reception, you receive a warm welcome. The bungalows in front of the rice fields give you a great sight view. The best place to relax and enjoy Hampi's visit.

Room Tip: ask river side cottages

Hampi is just another village, with no luxurious resorts. We enjoyed the stay in Mowgli guesthouse, across the river at Virupapur Gaddi. accommodation with a neat room and toilet, very close to all Hampi ruins. The swing opening to the green was the most important feature of Mowgli guesthouse

Very warm and flexible hosts, with relaxing open greenery and good international food – Israeli, Spanish and German.

The only problem is that you must return by 6pm, to catch the last ferry. A bath in the crystal clear Pampa, after a day in the scorching sun is remarkable. The evenings in the guesthouse, lying down, eating food, looking on to the darkness on the paddy fields is quite relaxing.

Room Tip: See if you get those rooms facing the paddy fields and river view.....

Enjoyed staying here, great location with views out over the rice fields. Room was small but fine for two people with a great balcony area to make the most of the views. Food from the restaurant was average.

Room Tip: Choose a river view room.

I have been to Hampi thrice and stayed at this guest house twice. Stay is average, food is average. Nice place to go with friends. Service is very slow and dont forget to carry mosquito repellent with you. Its difficult to get to the guest house by road and crossing the river is not possible in rainy season.
