    Looking for a quick weekend adventure, without shelling big bucks? Then The Goan Corner guest house in Hampi is where you should stay.

    What is It?

    Situated across the river on the Anegundi side, lost in the middle of lush, green rice fields, this relaxing guest house welcomes travellers from all over the world. On the other side, just a short walk away lies the majestic Tungabhadra river. Made up of simple, clean huts with a hammock outside for just INR 700 a night, The Goan Corner also offers a restaurant with an international menu {expect typical backpacker style fare here} and free yoga lessons each morning. And if you are looking at even cheaper accommodation, then there is the dorm {at INR 200 only}, which is basically comfortable mattresses, covered by a mosquito net, laid out on the terrace of the guesthouse. Thankfully Hampi is mostly hot, sleeping under the stars make perfect sense, right?

    Who Is It For?

    Apart from being a peaceful place, this guest house is also one of the cheapest in Hampi. The rooms are pretty basic and come with an attached or non-attached bathroom and private hammock for only INR 700. Which means, if you and your friends are looking to spend more time in Hampi or are even on shoestring budget for a weekend getaway, The Goan Corner will be your bae. Beer is served in the guest house, which means you can park either yourself in the garden in the evening or the common area that comes with floor level seating, and exchange plenty of conversation with fellow travellers.  

    Any Must See, Do Or Eat?

    Because it is Hampi and it is so hot between 10am to 6pm, we’d say wake up early and go for a walk to catch the sunrise in a relatively cooler environment. Just a half an hour walk away from the guest house, you can catch a brilliant sunrise at the statuesque Matunga Hill Temple, famous for being the highest point of the town. Or you can even admire the sunset by climbing a rock right next to The Goan Corner to catch the last rays of the dying sun. 

    After this, you got to wind down with a delicious meal! Don’t worry, Hampi is overflowing with typical little restaurants spread all across the little town across the river. The Ganesh Rooftop Restaurant is probably one of the cheapest {INR 150 per person only} and one of the most welcoming. Head to this family-run place, where a nice couple will cook for you regional specialities.

    How To Get there?

    No matter where you come from, you will probably arrive in Hospet. Bangaloreans, the easiest way to get here is by an overnight bus {from Majestic}. Then you could take a rickshaw or a bus to reach Hampi. You will have to cross the river to go across the other side {you will have to take a ferry during the rainy season} and walk up the embankment on the other side and then it is just a 5-minute walk across the rice fields to reach The Goan Corner.

    #LBBTip

    The guest house is always packed, so you will need to book your stay much in advance. But in case you arrive on short notice, there is always the terrace dorm.
