We arrived in Cherrapunjee and were very happy to find this very clean and convenient room. We stayed in the double room which is basic and delightful, immaculate and bright and cheery. The bathroom is behind the main house, a small walk to get to, and is also extremely clean. Hot water is available by the bucket. The best part of this place is Heprit, the owner, who made us feel so comfortable and right at home. He helped us with everything, from finding good food to showing us the most amazing places in this area. Come for a day, you might stay a week with all the fun you will have here! We love you Heprit!

It has 3 (three) rooms: 2 (two) dorm rooms with 3 (three) beds each and another single room with double bed and no attached bathroom in all these rooms.Opened on 1 June 2012 i started it when i met two Backpackers from Sweden while i was an auto-rickshaw driver, they wanted a cheap place to stay since the hotels/lodges here in cherrapunjee is beyond their budget. As i had a free room, so i let them stay in my place. Then an idea strikes to my mind that i should open a cheap place for Budget Travelers and Backpackers. Backpackers started to come and stay in my place and suggested me that i should give a name. Since it is by the side of the road and the cheapest place to stay in cherrapunjee so, i named it 'By The Way' ... more less
