Nice place with spectacular views over the lake. Aasif is simply awesome! Very welcoming and he makes you feel at home. He is always willing to help and go the extra mile to make your stay memorable. One of the nicest person I have came across in India! Thanks for everything Aasif!

Udaipur and the Gypsy Child Lake Hostel came to me as such an unexpected surprise. This location is magical and little peace of paradise on the lake. I never wanted to leave. This is the kind of place that you forget about the stresses of life and find your center again. I stayed in the Aravalli Room which was absolutely adorable with a view like no other. I throughly enjoyed the early morning sitting on the balcony with my coffee watching the world and the wildlife wake up. I saw all kinds of beautiful bird life owls, parrots and eagles right in front of the balcony in the tree. The room was immaculate the location is spectacular, easy to find right next to the palace but nestled away from the hustle and bustle. It is a quiet little hideaway with a staff that could not be more attentive. The master behind the magic is Asif - he is a gem in the rough that outshines all others! Just to list a few of his amazing qualities: He’s charming, genuine, kind, fun and funny, knowledgeable and very giving of his time and of himself. I feel lucky to have crossed paths with him and will be forever grateful for his Kindness and generosity. He goes above and beyond to make sure that you experience Udaipur both as a tourist and as a local. He is a true professional and if you allow him he will customize a plan for you that will be just the right mix of relaxation, cultural connection and sightseeing. Every recommendation he made was spot on from food to shopping, hiring a guide and when to go it own your own. Avoiding a tourist trap to taking you for the best local cuisine - he is a true goody! The staff working together with him will make sure you want for nothing and will do all they can to make sure your stay comfortable. I give this stay six stars. I could not have been happier and I would give it my highest recommendation. Thank you for having me.

It was so peaceful and had a high speed WiFi to facilitate worcation, but what makes it super special is the people there Asif , Pintu , Anil all were so kind extremely warm and made my stay extremely joyous Kudos to you and entire team !!!! Hope to visit again 🌻🌻

The place has a very welcoming and chilled vibe. The location apt as its at the foot of Pichola Ghat. The amenities, beds and room are basic, well maintained and feels safe. Asif is a rockstar. He caters to all your needs with a smile. He goes the extra mile to make you feel at home. If your looking for a work-action type of setup then this is the place to go. It's a good mix of: Comfort Hostel Life Great view and lovely sunset

Gypsy hostel location is in Old City (City Palace). Lake View is Just another best reason to watch out for. Ola/Rapido Apps work in udaipur and those are the best to use there and quite cheap and comfortable. I stayed in hostel more than a week and it was just brilliant and i spoke to ruchika who owns this place and asif who takes care of the place are wonderful. As it was my first time, with little hesitation booked there but after reaching, whole stay was memorable. As i stayed for a week, asif, anil and I became very close now and good friends. We somehow connected and asif took care of me so well right from the beginning till last day of my travel. You can even work as well as WIFI is really good. Asif will always be there to help you anytime and you can ask any question to him and will guide you to right path i guarantee . I can say lot but lets keep it short and best to stay and best to work as its very calm, peaceful place. Make sure to call ruchika/asif before reaching the place, they will guide you better without any issues :).

Let me put your mind at ease. This is the best place one can think of to be in. Every possible visiting place in the city is very close by from gypsy. The best view The best staff. The best food (very close by) Also the best photographer @asif will just blow your mind by his beautiful captures. Prabhu is such a good helper, anytime he was there for us. I got my life’s best birthday surprise by the people I hardly knew they decorated the place so beautifully got me a cake Unexpected bonds are made at gypsy child. Big cheers to Asif and Prabhu. May we meet again..!!!
