My sister and I originally booked this room from booking.com because the photos showed beautiful views of the rocks around Hampi from the homestay's balcony and it was a good price. After we took the boat across the water, we had some difficulty finding the property. People pointed us toward a house and we walked up and immediately had suspicions because it was not the property we had originally booked- however the names matched up and she told us we were in the right place. Murali's mother told us to put our bags in a room that was painted bright pink and felt like a furnace it was so hot. She told us the room we had booked was at their second property and that the people had not checked out yet- we did arrive before check out time (8 am). She wanted us to pay for the room we had booked while we were waiting for it to be ready and I showed her the price that we were given from booking.com. She said that was the price of the room that we were in now- the very hot room without an attached bathroom that was not pictured under the same homestay we had reserved. She told us to pay for the room we were currently in and when the people checked out, we could move into the room we originally thought we had booked. She also told us that meals are included in the price and made me breakfast. Fast forward several hours. The guests in our room did not check out until 8 pm (check out time is 10 am) so we had been waiting at the other house the whole day. There was also no wireless internet (she told us all of Hampi did not have it but days later we learned this to be untrue) so we were not able to find another homestay option. At 8:30 pm we finally walk over to the homestay we had booked. It was better- it had an attached bathroom and it was higher elevation and on 2nd story so there was a breeze coming in from the open air foyer/balcony area. She wanted us to pay more for this room. We explained that our reservation showed us the photos of this nicer room and not the "budget double room" that she initially showed us. She said that they use all the same photos for each type of room. I tried to explain that this is false advertising, but at that point we were so tired and worn down from the process of trying to get into this room that we paid it. The next day we toured Hampi with another guest at the homestay (on same side of river as homestay) and rented a motorized scooter from Murali's father. Again, we ate all meals there- even coming back for lunch before heading back out again to sightsee- since my sister and I (and the other guest) were told meals were included. We told her we were sightseeing in the tuk tuk the next day with a nice driver we met on our way to Hampi from the train station and she tried to sell us on cancelling with him and instead going with and paying her husband for the good part of 30 minutes. That night the other guest who we had befriended was leaving on an overnight bus but he had left his stuff in the room next to ours the whole day. That meant that the next couple trying to check in had to wait at the other house like we did for the whole day. We also found that Murali and his family charged our friend for the entire night since he left his stuff past check-out time. BUT once the new couple checked into the room at 8:30 pm, they were also paying for the night. We realized this was a scam and the European couple who had just checked in confronted Murali about it. We never learned of the resolution because the next morning, Murali's mother woke us up at 8 am because they had apparently given our room away for the next night. This was surprising since we had confirmed online the nights that we were staying on booking.com. We were so frustrated that we packed our things and went over to her house to settle up. We decided to change our train ticket and leave a day early because so far we had so much difficulty staying in Hampi. When we arrived to settle up, she continued apologizing and talking in circles saying that we didn't tell her we wanted to stay another night so she gave it away. It did not matter how many times I told her we had it confirmed and booked online- she just continued trying to hug us and say sorry. She then told us none of the meals were included and that my sister or I had to tabulate how much each meal cost over the past 2 days and nights- down to the piece of naan or tea refill. A menu appeared out of nowhere with prices on it. It was unbelievable and infuriating. Do not stay here. They are dishonest and conniving. The rooms are not clean or what you expect based on the photos they provide.

Murali Homestay in Hampi has the best view of Hampi boulders. It is little far from regular party places but if you are looking for quite place in the village, then this is the place for you. Murali and his family is so welcoming and friendly, it makes your stay more better. You should definitely have aunty's dosa for breakfast.

I stayed her few days in June and had a amazing stay. Murali and his family are so friendly and welcoming, you will feel like part of the family. His mum makes great home cooked food and they will tell you all about the surroundings of their village. Accommodation has all you need and in nice quiet surroundings. Would highly recommend!

Hampi is an extraordinary place to visit for many reasons, the ruins and temples are amazing. Murali Guest house is only slightly removed on a hill over looking the road to the river. Accommodations are simple, clean and comfortable. Muralis family were helpful and friendly providing good food and help arranging transfers around the sites as well as back and forth from train station in Hopete. We were two older men travelling around India and very much enjoyed and recommend stayin at the Murali Guest House.

Clean and great service is what you'd say, but truth is you become part of the family for a few days. We played cards together, ate amazing home cooked food, met a pair of other backpackers who became part of the experience there. Journey to Hampi is tough with train/bus, and sights are nice, but this stay is what makes the whole journey enjoyable, and least in our experience.
