Mowgli guest house is a great place to stay on the other side of Tungabhadra river. The staff is friendly and the service is good too. Rooms are circular in shape and are quite decent. There's a swing ( jhoola) outside every room. One can enjoy the beautiful rice fields while having food at the restaurant. Don't miss their potato-cheese momos !! Bikes/ scooties are available on rent. Only cash payments are accepted. So make sure you are carrying enough cash.
I stayed in this hotel in the month of January and it was a holiday trip with friends. I like sunset point in the destination and the location was good as it was near the river. The hotel front office staff's were friendly and it was a direct booking, the room was spacious the service was excellent food I don’t had in the hotel, Wi-Fi facility was available but it was not working properly. The overall experience was very good as I like the friendly nature of the staffs.

The hotel considered premium over most of the hotels around the area despite having very small caottages. Hotel is a boat ride away from Main town. On checkin in and looking at the cottages, we requested to shift us to the new building at the corner of the property. We paid some extra but room were more spacious and clean. Over all Food- decently prized Dining area- good Service- slow View- very good
Mowgli is situated on the other side of the river. Beautiful location with a view of paddy fields and river. If you are coming by bus or from the city side then you need to take ferry (Rs. 10/-) to come to other side. The bungalow are simple but it is very quiet, the view on the rice field is gorgeous, the service is nice and the restaurant good. So we did not regret our choice.
I was on a solo backpack trip and based on suggestion from friends, I ended up booking my stay at Mowgli guest house through an online website. My personal suggestion would be to go their and book as you can look at the room first before making any payment. For people on budget or hippies who travel to Hampi for an offbeat experience the huts with the small bathroom would just give you the perfect feel. Restaurant has good food and you can relax on the beds arranged in the restaurant. Overall it was a good experience.
Mowgli is situated on the other side of the river. Beautiful location with a view of paddy fields and river. If you are coming by bus or from the city side then you need to take ferry (Rs10/-) to come to other side. Though cleanliness is something which can be highly improved. Not sure if this was die to high season, with back to back guests, bed sheets pillow cases were not being changed. Mosquito repellent is a must to carry. We had a food bag which was torned by rats in room at night. Rooms :Cottages on river side come with a good view but low wifi and cottages on the inside have good wifi strength. Make your preferences. Square shaped ones are bigger. Food: Good. Restaurant gives a nice view and comfortable sitting. Bathrooms: Wash basin is not there in all cottages.
The cottage that we stayed at looked like a cutesy hut and had a homely warmth to it. Loved the greenery around, with views of garden and an open area with swings to chill and relax during evenings. The hotel is centrally located, with a number of restaurants nearby. As one steps out of the hotel, one can drive away to paddy fields and open grasslands with rocky views that are abundant in Hampi. The food at the in-house restaurant is okay. Though the staff is quite warm and friendly, ready to help out as much as they can. There's no dearth of eating options around the hotel. So, you can always stay here and go out for your meals. PS: The hotel is across the river, so one needs to cross the river in a boat. We crossed it in a coracle and it was an adventure of a lifetime. Highly recommended!
Mowgli Guesthouse is located at prime location of Hampi. It has amazing View. The food quality is amazing with lot of variety. Restaurant has a nice set up with nice view to paddy/rice fields. We certainly enjoyed our stay. The rooms have mosquitoes sometimes in night, so its better to carry mosquito repellent with you :)
The hotel was very conveniently located and I did not face any problem to reach the hotel. The staff at the hotel were very professional. The appearance of the hotel and surrounding was very worthy. The room was spacious and clean with all the amenities at good condition including washroom. There was view from the room. Food facilities were not there in hotel. I did not face any delay during check-in and check-out. I visited with my friends and it was relaxation trip in month of January 2012. There were no activities and sightseeing trip organised by the hotel. The money spent on the hotel was sensible. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers.
Two things you absolutely must know about this place are: This guest house is on the other side of the river. In other words, you can't access this place from Hampi's main town beyond 5 or 6 pm (or when the last boat plies). And once you get here, you're pretty much confined to this side of the river until dawn. If you're looking to stay here, get the cottage facing the paddy fields. They're a treat! There's a hammock outside each of these cottages and spending your late evenings and nights on them makes for an almost therapeutically relaxing experience! The rooms though are pretty basic, but that's in tune with most other places in Hampi. The staff here are pretty courteous and didn't frown us having to wake them up for a couple of sundry items. In short, this is one of the better places to stay in Hampi.
It was one of my most beautiful trips. The guest house is a hidden treasure right on the banks of the river Tungabhadra with lush rice (paddy) fields around. Watch the sun set in the river as you sip your coffee in your hammock. the food is fresh from the oven, cut and cooked after you order right from north indian kadai paneer to italian four cheese pizza. do not miss this experience.
My daughter and I stayed at this backpacker haven on the north side of the river in Hampi for 3 nights. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable. The view from our room (#29) of the lush, green, terraced rice paddies and the river beyond was beautiful. This was a nice place to relax at the end of a long, hot day of exploring. The restaurant is good and serves real coffee (usually). We could walk to most of the attractions, including the fabled Hanuman's temple from the Mowgli. The location of the Mowgli is across the river from the Hampi Bazaar, and the boats stop ferrying at 6pm, so you have to plan your day to be back by then. I thought this would be an inconvenience, but there are restaurants and shops on this side of the river, that we were happy to be back and slowing down by 6pm. Overall - great stay. Two thumbs up.
We stayed in the cottages along the river with the swing bed. The highlight of our stay there was sitting there every morning and evening with the cool breeze coming off the river. It was a nice place to observe the \"action\" in the rice fields and just relax. The cottages themselves are clean.
