I loved it! My room was clean, the wifi was strong and had boiling hot showers :) The staff is super smily and chilled, location is awesome - away from the noise but still close to laxman Jula and Tapovan and laundry service was cheap and great. The restaurant looks a bit deserted but give it a try - it's actually good (tofu mushrooms curry!). Would definitely go back!
I've stayed at 200 rupee hotels before, so I understand the quality one can expect from a budget hotel. But nothing can compare to the terrible experience I had with this one. I couldn't believe this hotel had good reviews on tripadvisor.
Upon check in, the manager quoted us 400 rupees. Throughout the day, the power kept cutting out. It's summer season, and the rooms are extremely hot, especially with no fan because of power outtages.
There were many mosquitos in the room, ants everywhere, and the wifi barely worked. It was so bad we tried to check out at 11:30 P.M, we didn't even want to stay the night. We asked for a room change for the mosquitos and they allowed us to choose another room. The room still had an ant problem but it was more minor.
The rooms themselves are very dirty. When I tried to check out the manager tried to cheat us by asking for 600 rupees, 200 extra for room change. I asked to speak to the owner but he said the owner was in Japan. I think this hotel really went downhill with the owner gone. It's dirty, staff is rude, no one seems to care.
I expected a discount since power doesn't work and it's full of ants, instead they try to cheat me. Horrible experience, the owners need to get rid of the current manager and come back to save their hotel...
Very well food service, always have hot milk tea, coffee anytime when I need.
the room we stay at 3 floor which have a beautiful mountain view, also with kitchen space that if I need to cook myself, pecfect for me.
anytime do laundry cheap and good quility.
easy walk to the river visit and all the yoga class.
Boss-Jay will help you "anything" you need and ask for,
I have a relax and wonderful stay here, very comfortable.
Stayed at Yellow Guest House since 27th December, and have no plan to move away as I believed this will be the best one can find in Rishikesh.
Reasonable price, room from 400rs, quiet location, friendly staffs, good food serve local and Japanese Food(one of the best in Rishikesh), and the attentive, guests oriented owner - Jai, made this guest house unique and special.
The best thing that happened to me on the 1st Jan 2016, I received a card and a rose on the doorstep, to wish me Happy New Year. A big smile and happy mood has brighten my first day of the year, and I believe it will be continue for the rest of the year too.
Under the arrangements of Jai, me and other guests on the same guests house, went to the mountains - Kunjapuri 1,676m, 15 km from Rishikesh, to see the sunrise over the Himalaya Snow Mountains, it was the most unforgeable trip ever, the best trip ever. We shared the taxi, and all of us enjoyed the first day of year 2016 together. Feeling loved, blessed, and heart was filled with blesses and blisses. Thank you Jai and friends.
The hotel is clean, comfortable, blanket and pillow are nicely washed and are very clean, bathroom is clean and nice. Hot water is more than good to have a good shower during this winter. And, many guests move here from other Ashram just to get a day or two good shower, and to get some good food other than the designated food provided in their yoga ashram.
Food is considered cheap, big portion, taste nice compare to other restaurants..
Located at Tapovan area. Hidden in a quiet path from the busy main road. no noise of traffic, no horns, peaceful and clam little place.
Strongly recommend it to all my friends who want to do yoga in Rishikesh, if you are not staying in Ashram, this will be the best place you can find with a budget of 400rs to 1000rs.
Hard to find at first but great location if one wants to escape all the honking noise. Short walk to everything you want to see and do in the Rishikesh. After a couple of days we found some shortcuts and walk to the bridge was just 5 min or so. Our bedroom (309) was nice and bright with a private bathroom and plenty of hot water. Jay is a very attentive owner. Always around, cheerful and helpful. He helped us to find a good travel agent in town who made our Indian vacations much easier. Free wifi not always worked but Jay was trying his best. We really enjoyed our stay at Yellow Guest House. Thank you.
