A definite pit stop for travellers at Hampi.
Is located at one edge of the town opposite to Hampi, across the river.

Comfortable stay, very delicious food and drinks, enormous menu list. The chicken lasagne and tandoori chicken was just delicious.

A definite stay, away from the city.

The perfect location near Hampi, the quiet, you can hear the frogs, the birds singing instead of the indian horns, Thakur and Sharmilla are very nice owner of this little home away from home!
Between rice fields and boulders (if you're climbing it's definetely the place to stay), away from the village of Virappur Gaddi on the other side of Hampi, we stayed 10 days there, the food is very good, everyone is nice, so why are you still waiting here? Go to the Goan Corner!!! But don't tell the guide books please, it has to stay the place you've heard from a friend who heard from a friend... :)

Lcoated across the river, on Hampi Island, which is the newly popular backpackers area. Near some impressive boulders so popular with rock climbers - we did feel a bit out of place as didn't climb or do yoga....

Range of huts and rooms available and you really pay for what you get. Ours was 300 rupees a night, very basic, quite grubby with outdoors shared toilets, cold water only. Electricity is only on certain hours of the day. Our room wasn't a very nice place to hang out in but many have hammocks outside for chilling in, although ours didn't.

When we stayed there were quite a lot of ill people around. Someone said 'everyone gets ill in Hampi....' so not sure if that was linked to the accommodation or not, although I wouldn't be surprised if there were germs going about as the rooms looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a long time and the toilets/showers were not great.

The cafe area is a good place to hang out and meet people. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The food was tasty - okra curry and the veg lasagne are two things that really stick out - so hopefully it wasn't the food making everyone ill! I don't think it was as not everyone was eating there all the time. Loads of other guest houses nearby if you want a change of scenery in the evenings anyway.

The goan corner wants to make your stay comfortable and let you to pay the bill of all you had including food and room etc. in the end of your stay.

after 10 days, we required a balance between, to keep our travel office in the view and paid the bill of nearly 3000 Rs. The owner acknowledged the bill with his signature!

in the final statement, (3 weeks later) we found the amount already paid on the bill again.
in addressing this matter, both owners got aggressive and shouted that we would have faked his signature.
They were very abusive and said our baby will get bad karma and really other ugly and vulgarly words.
and they accused us of doing more things like theft, etc.
which should have happened in the last travel 4 years ago in their guest house,
but actually she accused a girl with the same doings.
and We stayed there for a total of 5 weeks and they never mentioned something about the things that alleged should have happened in the last stay.
We are really disappointed about it, how to treat guests.

After two years as an expat in India I would have to say that our trip to Hampi was one of the top three highlights of our travels - and one important element was our stay at Goan Corner. The rooms were clean and comfortably appointed, the location was spectacular, and the proprietors were great (Thanks Sharmilla, you were incredible!).

The Goan Corner is away from the main part of the town (across the river on Hampi Island), but the laid back atmosphere and seclusion while still near enough to visit everything was what we were after. The myriad of domestic animals (dogs, geese, rabbits, Tom the turkey and more) added to the charm and homey feeling of the facility.

The location is particluarly popular with boulderers due to the easy access to the best climbing sites, and the fact that they have equipment available for rent (crash pads, shoes, etc.). They are also well known (maybe more so) for their restaurant - also called "Goan Corner".

We enjoyed our time so much that we have plans to go back and would not consider staying anywhere else.
