For what you pay for per night, this place is pretty good. I would highly suggest taking full advantage of the bar at the hotel before you go out: drinks are cheap!

... Hampi, and the once great civilisation never recovered from this fatal blow. Standing at the top of a stone staircase which leads down to the narrow crossing of the Tungabhadra river, we were faced with the decision of what was to be our river crossing of choice to get to our accommodation. Basket weave boat (a coracle) that leaks (!) or a very small ferry boat? Very small ferry boat it was, especially with bags! After crossing the river we were presented with ...
... because the naan bread made up for it! Once we finished we headed down to the cinema and watched an English movie with Ben Stiller, it was about travelling so it actually fitted in quite well, but it wasn't what we were planning to watch. Lunch took a while, so we missed the start of 'Dhoom 3', a Bollywood action movie, without subtitles. Google the name and look for pictures - the poster is a picture of four Indians that are very unrealistically on ...

After getting into my silk liner (shying away from patchy stained train sheets) I lay down and then started seeing loads of cockroaches, not wanting to kill them because no doubt they are cannibals and once dead would ...
... complete with table and chairs and a view of ... well a car park and a hotel but you can't have everything. Vowing to just stay the one night we had a wander through town, ignoring the incessant and increasingly lazy questions of 'taxi?' (we're walking on to the beach, what do you think?!) and found a man selling delicious corn on the cob, which he coated with lemon juice and a red spice (paprika?) before handing to you. We also took on a 'if you can't beat them, join ...
... more! That night we had dinner at a roadside cafe, really authentic and delicious food - we had onion pakora, pea and cashew curry and dal maharaja with naan straight from the tandoor. We have been here about 10 days and haven't had a bad meal yet, and its so cheap - it usually works out at about £3 per head for a meal and drinks, including the tip. Friday was the big market at Mapusa and our first taste of the local bus - which was a hot, busy and noisy ...
