I loved staying at the Yellow Guesthouse. It's been such a nice experience for so many reasons! Nice view, low cost, good position but to me it's been special because of the friendship that I built with the owners, a Tibetan couple i spent a lot of time with. I felt like home! So much that I didn't wanna leave... More

Perfect for backpackers and similar minded people who don't need the frills. Clean rooms, nice view and most importantly a cheap place to crash at night. Located nearby the main square. The managers are really nice and friendly people (a Tibetan lady and another guy), though may look rude on first look! They asked if we needed any help/directions, what... More

Firstly the positives, cheap rooms, nice and clean with enuite bathroom (inc. hot water) and a glorious view over the town and surrounding hills. Sadly, their customer service could use a lot of work. When we came to look at a room and agreed the price we then went back to pick up our bags from the next door restaurant,... More

We wanted a room just to put or bags and sleep, as we planned to roam around the town all day and trek to Triund the next day. This guest house was a surprise as it offered a clean and a big room with decent furnishing. The bathroom was clean and also provided hot water. The lobby gave a great... More

Yellow Guest House, located on Bhagsu Road, near the Green Hotel, is a neat and clean budget stay. We (my husband and I) stayed here in June and paid Rs. 600 per night. We planned to stay for one day first as we did not get accommodation elsewhere but we liked it and extended our stay for 5 more nights.... More

I stayed at the Yellow Guesthouse with a friend in June 2012. I guess I'm chiming in with the others when I say that it is very reasonably priced and is quite clean. To add, we stayed on the top floor where there were two single beds with an attached bathroom. The view from our floor was fantastic and there... More

I have been staying @ Yellow Guest House for so many years that I can't even remember the exact number of years. Lhamo-la (the owner) and his family are Tibetan. Very typical tradition Tibetan. Compassionate, kind, helpful, honest. Though the place is simple but with clean room, clean bedsheet, clean bath room and with attach bathroom with hot shower. Nothing... More

Stayed for 10 days, got to know the staff there really well, spending a couple evenings hanging out with them after work is done. They showed me how to eat fried crickets, delicious! Food is really good as well (western and khmer!) Wifi and computers available.

The place is budget place so obviously no-frills, but the rooms are nice and clean (very clean and fresh bedding!), with private toilet and hot showers. The location is very convenient (central location, nextdoor to Green Hotel) but quiet at the same time and there is a good view over the town. Friendly service.
