    This was my favourite hostel in India! The rooms and garden are lovely and the whole place has a very warm, welcoming, happy atmosphere. Awesome location close to delicious street food and easy to walk around. I loved the on site cafe, all the breakfast options were amazing! I also enjoyed the morning yoga classes (although one thing to note is that they are not free, I think the online description needs updating). The staff are super friendly and I met lots wonderful people here :) thanks!

    The building is really nice and well-located, just a short walk from the bus station and the palace. The staff is friendly ans especially the lady preparing the meals at the cafe is a real gem. Initially, I booked for 1 night but because of the positive comments from other travellers I met, I decided to book another night before arriving.

    We had a fantastic stay at the Mansion. The character of the place is amazing and it’s walking distance from the Palace and other attractions. Would really recommend staying here!

    The staff is caring and helpful. The location is close to bus and railway station. It’s a 10 minute drive to Mysore Palace. The place has a vintage ambience which you would fall in love instantly.

    The hostel is in a beautiful building and the rooms are big, each bed has a plug and light. The hostel was very clean and there are lots of showers and toilets so you never have to wait. The staff were friendly and helpful. The kitchen was very basic and not particularly clean. The water filter machine didn’t look like it was working during our stay.

    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.

    Staff is awesome and the architecture is amazing. Get Hotel RRR while there and get the vegetarian meal for a meal in the banana leaf.

    The Mansion is a large , slightly dog eared, but character filled old house located in the heart of Mysuru . If you are expecting a pristine resting spot with modern furnishings give it a pass. However if you are willing to accept a few warts, it truly is a very good choice . The grounds are filled with banana palms and other exotic flora, there is an excellent restaurant with delicious morning coffee and an amazing bowl of muesli. The staff are very helpful and go out of their way to help.

    Great location, breakfast and rooftop area, but I wasn’t impressed with anything else. Beds are not comfortable at all and the facilities aren’t good either. Staff was nice, but could be better in terms of suggestions and creating a good atmosphere.
