    Super chill place, with good food and nice vibe :) it’s also a nice hangout over the rice fields and a sweet place to met with other travellers

    Had a lovely atmosphere and is in a really amazing location with awesome nature around. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was simple but big and spacious. The only thing I would say is that the owner didn't allow us to rent mopeds because it was our first time (understandable) and because we were women not men (not very understandable)... we would have liked Ramu to give us more practise so we could drive around on our own but instead he said no straight away and gave us a bicycle

    This is a really cool place a 5 min walk from an amazing area of the river. Ramur the owner is a real character. All the staff are helpful and the food is good although some things are a bit on the pricey side. I met some really cool people there and the atmosphere was lovely. If you want to go to town it’s about a 30 min walk, but they have scooters and bicycles for rent if you don’t fancy it. All in all this is a great place, I initially booked 2 nights but stayed for 8. I highly recommend!

    Ramu and his family makes the place feels like home. Had a great time and met some nice people to share the travelling stories. Wonderful views of the fields and very chill out place. Ramu is a wonderful person who goes beyond to help if anything is necessary. Definitely highly recommended to all :) We will be back Britt and Goutham.

    Ramu is an amazing host along with his family. They are very helpful and friendly, taking care of all we nee. Being with them definitely adds a lot to the overall experience. The hostel has a very cool atmosphere that makes it really cool to hang out, with an amazing view of the rice fields. Food is also another big plus. I totally recommend the stay - I had a really good time myself.

    We had a great stay at Waterfall Guesthouse, Ramu is a great host and very helpful. The place is situated near Sanapur village, a very quiet area within the rice fields. We extended our 5 day stay to 9 days due to the great location and hospitality. The chefs are awesome!

    Very Good

    This is more of a home stay than a hostel with a rugged family feel. But it is in a beautiful and relaxing setting. Their kitchen is small but they produce great food. Recommend to hire a bike or scooter to explore the area. Around 2kms from ferry point. We hitch hiked that road a lot 😊 Negative: there are no luggage lockers in dorms so it's down to trust, but really it's in the middle of nowhere and most are on the same wavelength.
