The location is good as the cottages are overlooking the paddy fields. The rooms are average and the food is below average. This is a budget stay guesthouse with great location and also with car park facilities.

I first stayed here six years ago and although the prices have risen massively - their basic room was 300 rupee and now 1000, although now with attached bathroom - this is the same as seems to have happened across Hampi in recent years. Despite this, Shanthi Guesthouse still lives up to its name - it's such a peaceful, comfortable and beautiful place to stay and while away the days, looking over the rice paddies whilst swinging on the rope beds outside each room, or in one of the three restaurant areas available. We stayed here two weeks and could have gladly stayed longer. The only negative I have about the place is that the food in the restaurant is very average. We tried a few things but soon decided to eat elsewhere. This seemed to be a sentiment shared by other guests we got friendly with during our stay. A wifi booster away from the main reception and nearer many of the rooms also wouldn't go amiss. If they could sort this out then it would be near perfect! A special word for the main waiter there, who at busy times was run off his feet but always with a friendly nature. Shanthi Guesthouse is across the river from the main temple side, in the more touristic area, although right at the end of the strip so away from the shops and noise. To me this is the far more beautiful side of Hampi and a better place to stay. The temples and ruins of the old city are interesting, yes, but for me it's Hampi's natural beauty that is the most incredible thing and this is far more so on this side of the river. Get a scooter and go exploring, taking it all in as you go. Also make sure you make a visit to the Hanuman temple for a sunset, so as to really see why Hampi is such a special place.

The location is perfect and has car park space as well. On the downside is wifi which is poor near the rooms. Perfect budget stay. Request for a room with field/grasslands view. There are a lot of insects so carry repellants.

Good - the cleanliness of the place isnt as bad as some of the previous reviews make it out to be. But it is an Indian guesthouse so do expect some mould and bugs in your room. After 2 months of travel it is comparable to other places we have stayed in the price range. Bad - the staff are not friendly and helpful. They just sit around and didnt offer any smiles. But they did hire us a scooter and book a tuk tuk. Ugly - the kitchen does not look clean. We tried to avoid eating there (even with the continual pressure from staff to eat there). However, one afternoon we had some shakes and a toasted sandwich and we were extremely food poisoned for 3 days afterwards. Now it might have been something else we ate but 5 other people also had food poisoning at the guesthouse when we stayed there - coincidence maybe not????!! I would never eat from that kitchen again.

Worst stay in India for the value. Excpect to pay 1200 INR for one night to say with cockroaches and breathing mold air. Dont waste money in the restaurant, its really bad. Wifi is only avaliable up in lobby and restaurant where you will feed mosquites, if you want internet in evenings. When you get a bad located cottage, dont expect to get a good sleep, because staff continusely gather in front of your cottage and chat with each other or with phone, no matter how many times you tell them to leave. Dont wash laundry there, usually in India 1kg is ~30-50 INR, there its 15 INR per piece. Last year I stayed in a cottage a little more far from the main road, and it cost 300 INR and the quality was much better.
