I don't tend to expect much from budget accommodation in India yet some of the basics were absent here, as well as some of the features we enquired about prior to booking. Most notably was the lack of hot water which we queried beforehand and appears on their website. Furthermore, at times there was no running water at all, hot or otherwise. The manageress explained that the water tank was empty - considering the guest house was not fully occupied this doesn't bode well for peak season.
It was not especially clean, albeit not too bad by the standards held by most Indian budget accommodation. The bedding and sink were not particularly clean and there were some dust bunnies on the floor.
The room had a sizeable mosquito community when we arrived which I appreciate is very difficult to prevent but a hotel with mosquito screens is unlikely to suffer the same issue.
The internet facility that is mentioned on their website was described to us as a business centre when we made our booking but in reality this is a laundry room/kitchen, with clothes at varying stages of cleaning strewn over the desk.
On the positive side the guest house is located within Hampi Bazaar which makes it very central. The family that run the guest house are also very friendly and helpful.
Ultimately the guest house is cheap so you get what you pay for but there is probably better value available in Hampi.
