The amenities were basic but clean and hygienic. The owner of the property was very helpful in arranging guides and transport for us to visit not just the ruins around Hampi but also to Badami, Pattadkal etc. The only downside was that the home stay did not have a restaurant attached to it but being close by to quite a...

The Thilak is in the heart of Hampi Bazaar, convenient for the sights, tuktuks, bus station, restaurants etc. Our room was pretty small but the bathroom was good (no hot water but you don't need it). The AC was not particularly effective but keeping the fan gong meant we could sleep ok. All clean and decent. Kish arranged for Vinny...

Booked through booking.com. No advance payment. Got a call 2 days prior to arrival to confirm. Finally when reached there in the morning, no room was available in Thilak Homestay. But the caretaker (forgot his name, Praveen I think) managed to have us stay in another homestay nearby. It was really good to book in advance as I could see...

A lovely warm welcome from Kish and his mother Kumari, followed by a great three day stay in Hampi. The room and communal areas were very clean, the bed comfortable and everything worked. There is a cheap and reliable laundry service (which I used almost every day). Kish goes out of his way to make sure that you get the...

Kish, the owner, is one of a kind. Super helpful, kind, friendly and does everything within his power to ensure you enjoy your stay and to accommodate your travel needs. He runs a travel/tourist info center just around the corner from the property and he set up transport, buses and tours for us. One example of his kindness...I unfortunately got...

Well worth the money, this is probably the nicest place to stay in Hampi. The rooms were spacious and clean, with TV, AC and large bathrooms. Staff were very nice and helpful. Kish, the friendly guy in charge of the place helped us out with booking train tickets and also gave us loads of helpful advice.
