Kiran Guesthouse: "Basic accomodation" Hampi Hotel Tip by Willettsworld
Hampi Hotels: 18 reviews and 29 photos
When I arrived in Hampi off the bus from Goa, rooms were hard to come by as it was 8.30am and checkout time in most places was at 10am. Everyone was flying around the small streets in auto rickshaws trying to find somewhere that had a room. Guesthouses here are small with not many rooms which makes the job even harder. After looking around myself, for a while, a guy came over to me and said that he had a room so I went off with him to take a look. His place only had 5 rooms, all small and very basic but everywhere else is the same.
The Kiran Guesthouse is located near the river and Vicky's rooftop restaurant. It's run by a friendly family who were very accommodating. My room was very basic with two single beds pushed together and a mosquito net (which is a must have here as it's near the river and mozzies are everywhere). That was pretty much all I had for Rs400. The bathroom was OK but I had to have bucket hot water in the mornings which is the norm while in the country in India. There's a very good, cheap rooftop restaurant up top as well.
Kiran Guest House is located about 150 meters behind the Tourist Info Office at Hampi Bazaar. Take the narrow lane by the side of the Tourist Info Office and at the end of the lane, close to the banana fields, you can spot the guest house.
Price: less than US$20
