    It was an amazing stay. The place is situated in old city, very close to city palace which makes it a perfect stay for backpackers who want to explore the city. The host, Asif, is great. He helped me with everything, the places to visit, the places I can have my meals, different experiences I can try in Udaipur, he assisted in everything. I am definitely going to visit Udaipur and stay at this hostel again.

    Gypsy Child was the perfect hostel for us! We stayed in the private full bed room overlooking the lake, which had a private bath and terrace. The view was amazing and very peaceful. The staff was really friendly and accommodating, they brought us to a local breakfast place one morning, arranged a taxi service for a day trip, and showed us some local shops to do different activities like leather work and miniature painting. Would definitely recommend staying here!

    We had an amazing stay here! When we arrived the staff wrote us a really detailed itinerary for our 3 days in Udaipur. It was low season, so for a couple of nights it was just us in the hostel, we were treated like royalty! Location was perfect, easily walkable to nice restaurants, the palace and the main temple. Couldn’t recommend this enough - shoutout to Narayan, he was amazing!

    Excellent and personalized experience. Ruchika and Biswa are great host and Assef adds the necessary logistics touch. The best hostel in India so far and maybe the world! So happy to have stayed there and wish we could’ve stayed longer.

    Absolutely beautiful stay. I only ended up having a day in the city and the woman who runs the place wrote me an itinerary so that I could see as much of her city as possible. Was treated with such kindness and consideration when I fell ill shortly after arrival. Was truly a little home away from home.

    100% recommend this place! Asif goes above and beyond for guests, we loved his hospitality and all his help he gave us. We stayed in a private room so we had a private terrace looking out onto the lake where we could have our breakfast. It’s a short walk to the main bit of Udaipur, and located around the corner from the palace.
