Run by a friendly family, a short 15mins walk away from the main ghats. Ideal if you're looking for a quiet location, and much cleaner than backpacker places you'll find next to the ghats. We love Sona & her family - who always made us feel right at home from the first night. Thank you for the pleasant stay!

Run by a friendly and helpful family. Quiet residential location away from hustle and bustle, but only a 15 min walk to the old town.
