Booked for one night on booking.com but extended my stay here as it was value for money even though my room had a non western toilet ( apparently the others were booked). Breakfast of toast, eggs and coffee was nice although plenty of nice options in Darjeeling mall area. Owners were friendly, wifi only available in the lobby / reception...

Awesome hotel with awesome location and view. The staffs were very cooperative and helpful in guiding the routes and shops near to the hotel. I truly loved the owner of the hotel. They are so nice and humble people and caring too. For my next visit too I will prefer the same hotel again. Thanks for such an amazing experience....

This is a hidden wee place at the top of the hill with great budget rooms. I paid 500rs for a double with attached toilet and shower. Decent value in high season, Andy's wanted to charge 800 with no water or toilet. I only had to pay one night in advance so I don't know what everyone else is on...

We had previously booked into Magnolia Residency but found it too noisy and poor value. We had a good look at a number of other options, including Andys, and settled on Long Island for it's balcony with mountain view and the quietness. The room was clean but tired. 24hr hot water. Bed was not bad by Indian standards but not...

Rooms clean, but a bit old. Bathroom rusty. Hot water 24/7. No views on the first floor. We wanted to stay for 9 days and said in advance, but they told us to pay the 9 days in advance which we thought was not necessary at all. We told them if they could give us the wifi password, since we...

Long Island is the only hotel I've encountered that makes you prepay for 2 (two) nights in advance. This is according to their alleged policy of 2 night minimum. That is obvoiously unacceptable, and I told so to the owner who was completely indifferent. Some rooms upstairs might be worth the 500 rupees, but the cheaper ones downstairs are overpriced....

I spent 5 days there. Rooms are good, clean and cheap, although a little refreshing may render theme even more appealing. Those with attached bathroom have boilers, thus you have hot water at any time. High speed wifi available in overall building, even on rooftop, but switch off during the night. Rooftop offer a nice view on Darjeeling and mountains....

Great value at the top of Darjeeling by the TV ariel. The Nepalese owner (can be a little quiet at first) is one of those owners that truly puts the needs of his guests first. We had a great 5 day trek organised through him. Money changing (great rates) and had to procure rail tickets are also services he offers....

Basic backpacker place, clean rooms with attached bathroom. There's a 24/7 hot shower which you share with everyone (though 24/7 isn't actually correct as the owner has the key you won't be able to shower at 3 in the morning). There is a small common area with two computers and a few books left by other travelers, the area is...

“Pay a little (100-200) more and ask for a deluxe room, its a real upgrade. Also do tell the owner about any issues, i.e. rail ticket, trek, changing money issues - he will sort these out as a favour to you.”
