    This place is one of a kind in rishikesh, quite warm people and very open cottage style. It gives you a host of space to try to explore around, meet new people. Overall had a great stay and will visit you soon.

    The room is comfortable. A couple of issues include a giant building construction on the property that caused a lot of noise and dust. Don't be surprised if you wake up by what sounds like a bomb blast because of monkeys jumping on the GI sheet roof early morning, which continues throughout the day. Food wasn't upto the expectations and so was the water flow in the shower. Will try another property next time in Rishikesh.

    Someone called me 2 days after I checked out from the hostel at around 10 pm. They claimed that they were from the hostel but they did not even have my correct name or my check-in or checkout date. They were very shadyly asking for my details and claimed that they wanted to know if I had paid for my stay at the hostel. When i asked why there wee calling me at night to ask all these details which they should already have in the first place, the guy started making some random excuses.
