Well worth the money, this is probably the nicest place to stay in Hampi. The rooms were spacious and clean, with TV, AC and large bathrooms. Staff were very nice and helpful. Kish, the friendly guy in charge of the place helped us out with booking train tickets and also gave us loads of helpful advice.

The owner was really patient as we needed to check the WiFi speed as my wife works remotely. He checked the speed for us before we arrived. The WiFi is fine for Skype and general internet searches.

I stayed here for 2 nights while I explored Hampi solo. Kish and Vinny went above and beyond to make my trip relaxing, I've honestly not enjoyed hospitality like this in a while. They'll help you out with anything - tours, swimming in the nearby waterfalls, food recommendations. Thilak is right in the heart of Hampi so you're close to...
