Backpackers Paradise and Poor Man's Goa

6.0/7
Posted 17 Oct, 2013

If you are looking for a Goan experience out side of Goa, this is it. This quaint place is recommended for the young at heart with limited budget, and not for families with kids who look for something more conventional and want modern amenities; and definitely not for corporate guests or rich travelers who seek AC comfort & frills This resort, built in the lines of an Indian village, has a rustic feel and a rural ambience that attracts foreign tourists in droves. It has a nice easygoing feel to it. The cottages come with balconies and are made of mud walls with pleasing motifs and thatched roofs. Every balcony has a swing, which is a plus point. The rooms are very basic with a double bed and a mosquito net. The bathrooms are clean with standard fittings To get to Shanthi Guest House, you have to get to the other side of the Tungabadhra river, away from the main town and temples. Govt boats ferry you to and fro between 6 am to 6 pm for a nominal price. 2 wheelers & bicycles can be accommodated in the boats. For folks looking for peace and quiet, this place is ideal since it's away from the maddening crowd. Most of the resorts and restaurants are on this side of the river and they mostly cater to foreign tourists. It's popularly known as the poor man's Goa Most of the cottages face the lush green paddy-fields and a few face the road. The TB river is just 100 meters away across the paddy fields. Rooms are decently priced at around Rs. 1000-1200. WiFi connectivity is available The dining facility also serves as a community space. They face the fields, and are also thatched affairs with low mud walls and mattresses lining the walls with low tables. A great place for folks to get together and unwind over a cup of tea or some cold beverage. I found the food very palatable and very reasonably priced. They serve excellent continental fare and the breakfast was super. The service is commendable with courteous staff. You can also get Israeli food here There are no Liquor shops in Hampi and Liquor is not served in this facility. You can access it from the surrounding villages, or from Hospet and can be consumed in the confines of your cottage. It's recommended that you hire a bicycle or moped - costs around Rs. 50-100 a day - since the place is located about half a KM from the boathouse. It's very convenient to get around and see the picturesque countryside. You can also take the moped to the temple side of the city via ferry and explore the various ruins and monuments that are spread over a large area If you have a bicycle or 2 wheeler, you can also check out Sanapur Reservoir, which is just 5 km from the resort. Best visited in the evening, the view of the sunset and its reflection on the lake is breathtaking. The boulders with their long shadows, surrounded by greenery is something spectacular Overall, the resort is great value for money, especially, for backpackers and youngsters who travel in a group with limited budget. It has the right atmosphere and ambience to make the trip memorable. Avoid visiting during summer, since the temperature can rise to beyond 40 C and there is no air conditioning at the resort. Hampi is best visited during the monsoons, as the place is lush green at this time of the year. And with the river level being full, it's ideal for coracle rides!

Conveniently located and good room

5.3/7
Posted 14 Feb, 2017

I had booked Shanthi Guest House when I had been to Hampi during the month of December 2016. It was my holiday trip with family. My travel destination was very good with necessary comforts. The hotel location was good with necessary available at the nearest. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as good as it is very clean. Hotel front office was good since they are always available with correct information. I booked my room direct at hotel. The services which were provided in the hotel were good with quick response. Rooms which we stayed in were good with facilities and hygiene. I would rate food as very good, here we can get more local varieties.

True to the name!

4.9/7
Posted 8 Dec, 2015

They never call themselves a hotel. Its a guest house, and true to it's name it provides you the simple luxuries of life. Don't expect a hotel treatment, it's a guest house so its basic. But what you get is a neat looking cottage in midst of nature's tranquillity. You have an awesome view to look at while sipping your tea/coffee, gaze at the millions of stars above while lazing on the swing(every cottage has a swing) and a neat and tidy comfortable room with a clean bathroom. You can choose either garden facing or paddy field facing Hampi is a small village some 350 kms from Bangalore. Its a UNESCO heritage site. Time seems to have stopped here long time back, past stills echoes here. You'll face problems catching signals on your phone, so just lay back, enjoy and rejuvenate. Being not connected is a boon at times Shanthi guest house is in Hippy island of Hampi so you need to take the ferry from the ghat to reach there and then another 10-15 minutes walk once you get down from the ferry. Hampi can be explored many ways . I chose cycling but one can go for two wheelers, autos, taxi etc. The guest house has cycles and two wheelers on rent Food wise they lot of choice or else there are many other options too. But for the price, it's a very good option to stay if you're planning Hampi. You need to book in advance during season, they are always full. Also I would like to add if your a solo female traveller this place is pretty safe.

Hotel was value for money

5.8/7
Posted 1 Mar, 2016

The railway station and bus stand was far from the hotel. The hotel was located in the city. The check in and checkout was not delayed. The reception people behaviour was nice and helpful. The room was neat and clean. The washroom was comfortable and well maintained. The hot water facility was provided all time in the room. The hotel was value for money. The food was not included in the package. I take food from the hotel. The games were not arranged at the hotel. The best part at the hotel was location. The parking facility was provided at the hotel. The pickup and drop facility was not provided at the hotel. The sightseeing was not available nearby the hotel. The overall experience at the hotel was good. I had visited this hotel for relaxation trip with my friends. I would recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers. I would suggest this hotel to provide complimentary food.

Far from chaos this village serves your soul. And this homestay is just an addition to this experience . The village of Malgudi was just like any other village in India. Mud walled huts from where smoke swiveled like serpents from the chimney; little children walked barefoot to school till doomsday. These kids weren't like the kids in the cities. They weren't like the couch potatoes sitting in front of the television . Old people gathered to gossip, here. The atmosphere was unpolluted here. Teenagers sat to whoop up a game of cards. This village could be given a certificate and could be stamped as a village of harmony, but for one reason. It was not blessed with rain. Wide expanse of land was covered with sand. Little dry shoots of grass peeped here and there. However, there was only a huge tree in this village. This was in fact considered as the landmark of the village . People did whatever they could, by their superstitious beliefs to bring rain. They conducted a grand marriage for the donkeys. They prayed to Gods. They conducted sacrifices and. They even had a belief that the rain was nothing but God's tears. So, they tried to make God unhappy by not going to the temples so as to make him cry. But all was in vain . One day, everything grew strange. The sun never shone maliciously and brightly as it always did. The grey clouds blanketed the sky. Little drops of rain dampened the earth. The mud rose to the air. It started to pour cats and dogs. People were overwhelmed with joy. They danced in the rain and spent the whole day in the rain until some of them got flu. The school had declared a holiday for the children to enjoy the rain. The humans' souls are insatiate. They wanted more rain . It poured continually for a whole week. People grew tired of it. The huts weren't mud walled any more. The became brittle with rain. The huts got submerged in water; the large tree was washed away and lay broken. The villagers started climbing on haystacks and huts to save themselves. The cock and the dog were on it too. The village was unidentifiable. The fulminated people cursed the God for giving them plenty of rain. Always grass is green on the other side" . The school children enjoyed a lot because their books had been washed away and their school was no more. But, people had learnt their lesson. They did not cry over spilt milk. They learned to make a living out of it . Fathers sat on their rooftops and started fishing. Mothers cradled their babies and put them to sleep by placing them in a vessel and putting them in the water-level, rocking them to sleep. Grandparents sat on the tree tops and started a new flooded topic for gossiping. Teenagers made rafts and continued playing cards. All of them attained normalcy and were happy except for the school children. Their school had started again. Their new classroom was a bamboo boat. The villagers protected the broken tree and grew it again . The village was prospering. The tree was still its landmark. This village became to be known as the Malgudi". People had learnt their lesson and tried their best to retain their normal life . Now, this village has developed. It has become a tourist spot. The villagers have constructed underwater huts, restaurants, schools and temples. But still, the water-level receded and the cock, dogs haven't got down from their rooftops.

Hotel front office was very good as they will respond quickly with appropriate information. I booked my room direct at hotel. The services which were provided in the hotel were very good because of quick response and politeness. Rooms which we stayed in were very good because of available facilities. The food in the hotel was good as we can have so many options as according to the season.

The best guest house to choose in Hampi

6.3/7
Posted 16 Feb, 2016

I chose Shanti Guest House in Hampi going by the traveller's review and it was a good decision that I had made. As for everyone I went there to take a break and explore the heritage and ruins. Though the rooms are very simple and built for the basic necessities, it was comfortable, neat and clean. I feared encountering insects and pests but luckily found none in the room. The swing outside the Garden View Cottages are the charm, which helps to relax from the tiring day of exploration. The staff were very helpful with everything that we needed. One thing I regret is having spent one entire day only in the guest house and just roaming nearby. Relaxing and staying in the environment as it was a short trip that was planned. The food was okay I would say, as I found a peculiar smell in the food which bothered me while eating. I am sure they can improve on that.

The places has cottages or paddy field views. I had stayed in the Paddy Field view rooms. The food is good but service is slow and the rooms could have been better but the place has a nice feel to it. In case you just want to lay back and relax this is a good place.

Great location but horrible service

3.4/7
Posted 13 Mar, 2014

Shanthi guest house is located on the island Viruppapur Gadde, which can be accessed via motor boats from Hampi. This was my 3rd stay with Shanthi guesthouse in last 4 years. I can clearly sense that they are degrading day by day. Let me start off with some positives though: . . Pros. 1. Undoubtedly, Shanthi offers you the best view of paddy fields and mountains. You can lie down on the swing in room's balcony and enjoy the serene beauty. 2. Online booking offers you the advantage of choosing your rooms in advance. Cons. There is no concept of daily room service for cleaning, changing bed sheet / linens, restocking shampoo/soaps. Food is pathetic and the service is super slow. If you choose to eat outside, management gets cheesed off and will start ignoring you completely . 3. Older rooms are in bad conditions and needs renovation. Meshes are broken. Lizards in room are common . 4. There is no intercom. If you need something, you have to walk up to reception/kitchen. Service boys are always reluctant to assist. You'll never be greeted with a smile. 5. Bumped charges are higher comparatively. 6. It is the last guest house on island. So, you'll have to walk 1Km every time you need to go to Hampi. However, it makes it much closer to Anegundi . 7. Check out time is 9 a. M. At sharp 9, you'll be thrown out of your room. 8. Most guest house in Hampi will have some music and lighting to make the mood lively. Here it is always sombre as if you are in a mortuary. 9. No mosquito repellent given in the room, only mosquito net which suffocates me . 10. No recreational activities - TV, Chess, Carrom, Magazines - Nothing!

The resort is in an excellent location across the river. Very well maintained lawn. The cottages were okay. But if you are going to be hardly in the room, it really wouldn't bother you that much. Decent enough to catch a quick nap in the afternoon and spend your nights there.

I chose Shanti Guest House in Hampi going by the traveller's review and it was a good decision that I had made. As for everyone I went there to take a break and explore the heritage and ruins. Though the rooms are very simple and built for the basic necessities, it was comfortable, neat and clean. I feared encountering insects and pests but luckily found none in the room. The swing outside the Garden View Cottages are the charm, which helps to relax from the tiring day of exploration. The staff were very helpful with everything that we needed. One thing I regret is having spent one entire day only in the guest house and just roaming nearby. Relaxing and staying in the environment as it was a short trip that was planned. The food was okay I would say, as I found a peculiar smell in the food which bothered me while eating. I am sure they can improve on that.

The hotel was located in the city. The ambience of the hotel was good. The activities were not available in the hotel. The check-in and check-out was on time. The room provided by the hotel was neat and clean. All amenities were available in the room. The food and drinks were available in the hotel was good. I had visited this hotel with my family for personal trip. I would not suggest anything to this hotel.
