    We arrived in the early hours , we had already pre booked our room via email, they let us in no problem, we felt very welcomed here, The room was clean and tidy with tea making facilities, The owner and staff were very friendly, the food in the restaurant below was fantastic, I'm sure we ate more then we should of but it was so tasty. Would definitely recommend this to any backpacker.

    ... nowhere to park them safely, so they ended up nose to tail on a very narrow curb beside a set of concrete steps. The situation was far from ideal and made us both a little nervous. Completely unprotected; barely even off the road, a lunatic Indian driver could easily plough into them while rounding the bend or trying to squeeze past oncoming traffic.
