    Loved the place and enjoyed the stay, met people from all the parts of the world and everybody was polite and place was calm and chill. Loved the conversion of the 100 year old mansion into hostel and for their reasonable rates. Facilities were top notch and the location is very apt for travelers.

    Linda (the manager) is awesome as is the whole staff!! The mansion is an amazing place to hang out. There are many spot all around the property to relax in! The cafe serves an delicious pancake with peanut butter breakfast as well as a great Indian dinner. We liked it so much we stayed a couple extra nights!

    If you come to Mysore stay here! The staff is lovely and we had a great time enjoying beers on the upper deck together! The rooms were small, but fine, and I slept on a cot on the floor a night because so many people were here which I actually loved! There are tons of toilets and showers with plenty of hot water, so no complaints there.. If I could change anything it would be to somehow get rid of the tuk tuk drivers that wait by the front gate and hassle you everytime you go out for a walk..

    Good vibes in this quirky backpackers. Clean and comfy but staff were a little off; they seemed disinterested and sometimes a little rude. Yoga did not happen as there is a class minimum of 3...was unable to find out until just before it was supposed to start. Would still recommend to stay - lots of places to chill and the vegan smoothie bowl was tremendous! We met lots of lovely folk there too.

    Cheerful and helpful owners with ideas for sight seeing. 5-10 minute walk to main town and situated right next to a great dosa place and a supermarket. Lots of showers and toilets with hot water and yoga twice daily in the building. Lots of space to relax and chill. Only qualm is one night I had to leave and come back as my stay was not extended despite asking 4 times and being told it was all done. Slight disorganisation needs to be dealt with better without inconveniencing staying guests
