“Basic rooms, accommodating staff”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Basic but comfortable rooms, the bathroom is a bit disgusting because they are old. Very accommodating staff for check in and departure times, they also book train, plane, bus, and excursion tickets. Make sure you negotiate your room rate down because they over value their rooms and there are tons of guest houses of the same quality in the area. laundry service was ok - clothes smelt clean but there was still dirt on them. This is because they were hand washed. Avoid doing laundry here.

On arriving at Hospet station from Goa , we were taken to Rockys by a tuktuk driver . On arriving we were told they had a downstairs room for 1 night but the next night we would have to have a different room . As you can see from the pictures the room was very small and basic . It consisted of a double bed with a throwover no sheet . A shower and toilet room (through the door you can see on the room photo ) A poster on the door telling you the rules and regulations while you stay in Hampi ( very intimadating ) . The staff werent really interested unless you were paying them money . They charge for toilet rolls and came knocking on our door when only 1 of us had showered saying his meter was going round too long , your only allowed 2 mins in the shower ? The room was clean but we didnt use the mosquito nets as they were in need of a good soak or renewal . There is quite a large number of locks and bolts on the doors ? ! I would advise you to take your own padlock and lock away all your things . We took a lock and chain and chained our bag to the bed after hearing about thefts . We had very poor sleep as we could hear everything , phones ringing , children crying , dogs howling ALL night long . Everything is within walking distance in Rockys , The temple , police station ( you need to register here on arrival ) bus station etc . If your wanting somewhere to eat then just down the road there is Princes , Lovely food , very nice laid back staff and a very good service ( say namastay on arriving - Hello ) The temple is a must , A blessing off the temple elephant ( unbelievable ) . Monkeys are everywhere in Hampi and love to be fed . The tuktuk drivers will take you around to see the lovely ruins and views but arent allowed to give you tours , If you want to know the history in full depth you can do the tours with the reps , which you will find are in the temple in the mornings . Hampi is a beautiful place but very poor , children ask for ruppees for their photos and shop stalls are desperate for a sale . I would recommend women to wear long pants and a shawl over their vest top if not wearing lons sleeves . Hampi is a religious place and not used to seeing women showing off their shoulders , legs etc . Our videos of Hampi are on you tube - city of liverpool kickboxing , please feel free to view them .
